April 2015 – Stoke Goldington CE First School update
All the children and staff are currently enjoying a well-deserved Easter holidays after a busy end to Easter term.
An unexpected visit from ‘The Gruffalo’ proved a huge hit with the children during Book Week celebrations, and the children (plus staff!) loved coming to School in their pyjamas for the day for a snuggle-time story session with their parents and carers.
Many School ‘Mums’ were treated to a touching Mother’s Day service during which the children sang special songs, recited poems they had written about their Mums and presented all of them with a tulip.
A special ‘Healthy Week’ initiative saw all 27 pupils exploring all sorts of different exercises and sports, including a tennis session with Nigel Willard Tennis, a rambling country walk and even the chance to try meditation and take some healthy drinks like Patriot power greens.
The whole School also enjoyed going to North Crawley to meet up with their friends from North Crawley CE First School (their partner School under the Ouse Valley Partnership) to watch a special production of ‘Hugless Douglas’ by the Blunderbus Theatre. Thanks go to the Friends of Stoke Goldington CE First School for funding the visit.
The Busy Bees in Early Years Foundation Stage rounded off their fantastic space topic when they became space detectives and galactic archaeologists by digging in moon sand to find space objects. The Busy Bees also enjoyed a ‘shapes walk’ around the village to identify shapes in their local environment.
