Many children said that today was “the best day ever!”
“I loved making the biscuits.”
“Milking was so cool!”
Lucie and Bruno, our hosts at La Vache de Louvicamp farm, really made this a superb day. We found out all about the food cows eat, the insemination process and got to meet (and stroke!) the cows! On top of that, we made our own biscuits – from flour, a special sort of white cheese and butter made on the farm, milk jam and berries we picked ourselves. Later, we even got to milk the cows by hand. Everyone had a go – and some of us even managed to get some milk! A fabulous day, where we not only had fun but learned so much.
In the evening, we shared our room jingles, with prizes awarded for the most innovative! The teachers couldn’t decide so there were four rooms which won!
Yesterday we were delighted to welcome the LSO into school, working with Year 4. The children have spent many weeks composing, singing and practising … and the performance they gave yesterday was stunning! Thank you to the LSO and well done to Year 4!
Year 4 had a fabulously “grown up” evening yesterday, as they dined out at a Fish and Chip Restaurant in Broadstairs. They were all very sensible and had a brilliant time!
In glorious sunshine, despite rain earlier in the week, Greenleaf were blessed on Friday, with perfect conditions for Sport! The children took part in both track and field events – ranging from shot put and speed bounces on the field to relay and sack races on the track. The highlight for many was the parents’ space hopper race. A number of injuries were reported. Back in training for next year, mums and dads!
Many children were delighted to win medals, but all children got stickers for taking part and all were very keen to congratulate the winners and support those who didn’t do quite so well. Great attitudes, Greenleaf!
Thank you to all the staff for their continued hard work – Sports Day is exhausting, but great fun! Thank you also to the very many parents who came along for the day, or who just joined us for lunch. It was very much appreciated!
A massive thank you to the ladies of the PTA who worked tirelessly all day to provide refreshments. Kept us all going!
Collaboration is a wonderful thing!
Exhausted – but we showed great resilience and determination!
None of the parents could believe how hard the space hopper is!
