With just a simple “Season’s Greetings” message inside, the cards are ideal to send to friends and family and will be on sale for £1 each or in packs of five for £4 including envelopes if you would like to buy some. Ask at Reception!

Worthy runners-up, in joint second place, were Harry T (Reception) and Izzy W (Year 6), whose designs are also shown here. Well done to them, and to all who entered – we had some excellent designs this year!

Year 1 crafty candle decorations

Year 1 pupils have been making some beautiful, imaginative candle decorations in their DT lessons. The decorations include a hanging walnut shell and bright red-and-white fly agaric toadstools (very pretty but very poisonous so be careful if you find one growing!) as well as metallic-painted leaves and some fir cones.  This week in praise assembly, Matthias was specially mentioned for his meticulous creative work with this project and in the first picture you can see him crafting the toadstools using Fumo, which we cooked in chef Howard’s school oven. Well done, boys and girls!
