The Circle, Issue 88, 24.05.2024 – Welcome back to The Circle! This week we were sad to say goodbye to the chicks in Y1, but also very excited to welcome the butterflies to Reception! The Y2 children have been busy preparing for the community Grow Festival, which you can read all about in this issue. The money from ticket sales will go directly towards raising funds for our community garden project. Please purchase a ticket and come along on 14th June! If you are unable to buy a ticket, just let us know and we will make sure you don’t miss out. Have a lovely weekend when it arrives. Best wishes, Andi and Sarah

Our Values in Action:

Reception- Joy

Today we released our butterflies after taking care of them for the last month. It was a really joyful moment, as you can see on the children’s faces. I have been so impressed with how well the children took care of our butterflies and showed kindness to them. What a brilliant way to experience the life cycle by watching it with their own eyes happen before them.

Year 1

This week Sky Brown have been working hard to produce information leaflets all about chicks. We’ve had such a brilliant half term project learning about how to care for chicks and then children have shown joy, courage and responsibility as they have embarked on this learning journey with enthusiasm.

Year 2 – Joy

Parton class have been busy preparing for the Grow Festival event. This week they showed so much joy and curiosity cooking and testing recipes so that they could choose which ones will be served at the event. The school building smelt delicious and has got everyone very excited – those coming will be in for a real treat with food. Remember to book your tickets to the event – you can find further details about the tickets available and how to cook in this Newsletter.

Community Corner:
