Arts week in Hedgehog Class

Today the children have been singing ‘Three Little Birds’ by Bob Marley – link here to a children’s cartoon version if you’d like to watch it … 

We then made our own little birds from collage materials – just like the hummingbirds that live in Jamaica. Year 2 children have also made a friendship bracelet out of red, gold and green thread, significant colours to Rastafari people living in Jamaica.

As it is our World Turtle / Oceans Day in school today too, we also made collage turtles as there are four different types of sea turtles living in the seas around Jamaica – green turtle, the loggerhead, hawksbill, and leatherback turtles.

As it was so hot the children enjoyed an ice pop after morning break and lots of extra water.

What a busy morning!


The Village Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

It was just wonderful to see the school grounds filled with so many people enjoying the Village Jubilee Celebrations on Saturday. On behalf of the school, we would like to say a huge well done and thank you to the organisers for bringing everyone together – this includes our Chair of Governors, Keith Lister, and his wife Alyson. Alyson also continues to help keep our sensory garden which many people commented on as we all enjoyed the school grounds in the sunshine. We thank you both. In case you missed it, here is the School Hall and our children’s work in all its royal glory !


Jubilee Picnic 🇬🇧 👑

We enjoyed a delicious Jubilee Picnic on the last day of half term – the sun shone as we replenished our energy levels after the Fun Run! As you can see; it was red, white and blue with smiles all round!
We hope you enjoy your Platinum Jubilee celebrations as much as we did in school this week.

Jubilee Fun Run

We had a brilliant day of Jubilee celebrations on Friday with a Jubilee Fun Run! Dressed in red, white and blue, the whole school got warmed up and took part in a sponsored run, organised by the Friends of Ruyton.

We were delighted to welcome Mr & Mrs Gittins to the event to not only start the races, but join in too!

Thank you to Mr & Mrs Gittins for spending the morning with the children and also Mrs Aspinall & Mrs Beddoes for their help on the day. We can’t wait to find out how much money was raised!
