‘Everyday Magic’ graduation.

This afternoon we graduated as ‘Everyday Magicians!’ We had a special ceremony hosted by Rae Farmer and attended by family and friends. As we have all been performing Everyday Magic both at home and at school we each received our special card to say that we were ‘Everyday Magicians.’ We hope that the kindness and thoughtfulness of the children will be continued on both at home, at school and in the community.

Gymnastics

On Tuesday our gymnastics lesson was taken ,once again, by our visiting coach. This week we were exploring different balances. After we had learnt our balancing technique we practiced it in a circus! A circus was set up in the hall so that we could show how wonderful our balance was on the tightrope and the beam! Our coach was very impressed!

Yogatastic!

This afternoon we had a yoga taster session. The children loved it and I could see great concentration on some of their faces! The children were very flexible and most had good balance. The relaxation at the end was lovely too! The children have brought home a letter tonight about a yoga after school club. If your child would like to attend please bring in the slip from the letter by Tuesday.

Everyday Magic!

What a lovely morning we had this morning! As part of our ‘Everyday Magic’ project we invited our grandparents to come into school for a coffee morning. We were thrilled that 30 of our grandparents came to school! We began by playing board games. We played Draughts, Scrabble, Snakes and Ladders and Battleships to name but a few. After that we had tea, coffee, juice and cake while we chatted to each other. It was a lovely atmosphere and we loved watching the children interact so beautifully with their grandparents. This morning was all about saying ‘thank you’ to our grandparents for all the love and attention they give us – and thank you from us too for giving up your time to be with us.

Gymnastics

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas. It was great to see the children back at school yesterday.

This morning, we had our first session with the gymnastics coach, Miss Tyler. The children learnt the 3 basic shapes used in gymnastics: tuck, pike and straddle. They then practised using these shapes in different ways and finally in a game where they had to make the shapes of different letters. We will be building on these skills over the next few weeks.

Carol service

This morning we rounded off our autumn term beautifully with a carol service at the church. It was a gorgeous occasion and the children sang beautifully.

After that we went to the shops to sing. There was already a great crowd gathered when we arrived! We once again sang beautifully and felt that we really were doing some everyday magic.
