KS1 Nativity

 

The KS1 children have been working very hard on learning their parts for this year's Nativity - The Inn-Spectors.  The Year 1 children are singing and dancing, whilst the Year 2 children will be taking the acting parts!

Christingle Service

 

The children were lucky enough to have volunteers from the local church come into school this week to support them in making Christingles.  They learnt about the meaning of the Christingle and learnt a Christingle song.  Thank you very much to all the helpers!

Children in Need

 

The children came to school in their 'sporty/spotty' wear for Children in Need.  The whole of KS1 went into the hall to take part in a Joe Wicks workout session.  We came away feeling very invigorated indeed!

Wellbeing Walk

 

The children had a lovely time walking all the way up to Gobions Open space and around the ponds.  We stopped in the open area to collect all sorts of signs of Autumn.  When we returned to school, we created beautiful pieces of art to display in Brookmans Park village.  Our art was inspired by our walk and the colours of Autumn.
