Today’s Harvest Assembly gave us all an opportunity to reflect on those less fortunate than ourselves – both overseas (war, famine, natural disaster) and at home, where some children were surprised to learn that not everyone has enough to eat. The children were very reflective and concerned to make sure that the amazing donations of food and toiletry items went to a good cause. All of the very generous donations (thank you to mums and dads for such a brilliant response!) have gone to our local food bank (Eat or Heat) in Jewel Road.
A huge big thank you to 5EO who not only helped grow the vegetables at the allotment (tending to the soil and the plants), but harvested chard, spinach, courgette and tomato – and then magically transformed them into a delicious frittata. Once cooked (thank you to the kitchen staff for the use of their ovens) this was an additional choice at lunch today and very much enjoyed by everyone who tried it.
Today we remembered Ms Trim with a very reflective (and both sad and joyful at the same time!) assembly followed by opportunities to tell and share stories on our new storytelling chair – dedicated to Ms Trim’s memory. The children really enjoyed both telling and listening to such a wide range of stories and Ms Trim’s daughter and niece, were also delighted!
A whole day of fun at Robin Hill. Some of the highlights – the falconry show, scaling the heights of the squirrel tower and the challenge of Colossus. Well done, everyone!
A very rainy day! We all got very, very wet!! But, in spite of it all, we had great fun. The children were amazing at Osborne House – fascinated by the history and asking really sensible questions. In fact, they were full of questions, especially at the glass studio, where there were so many questions, we ran out of time!
The sun has shone all day today. Perfect for Blackgang Chine! Everyone has had a marvellous day.
Despite the weather, we are all having an amazing time in the Isle of Wight. The children love their rooms and dinner was great!
