Carol Singing at Stephenson Court

Every year, in December, a group of children take a short walk to visit the elderly people living at Stephenson Court, Kilsby, to sing a few carols with them.

This year the children in Rowan class visited them on the morning of Thursday 7th December, along with Mr How, Miss T.K., Mrs Woodall and Rev Nigel.  They sang carols to the residents there, including 'O Little Town of Bethlehem' and 'Away in a Manger.'  The residents really enjoyed the morning and joined in with the singing themselves.  They kindly provided the children with refreshments afterwards.

Children in Need

Today, on Friday 17th November, the children came to school wearing something spotty and brought a donation towards Children in Need.

Also at break time some of the girls in Maple class held a stall selling homemade cakes, friendship bracelets and book marks. It was their own idea to do this to help raise more money for this cause, and they organised everything themselves.

They sold out on everything and raised a grand total of £137.45!  Well done girls you did really well, we are so proud of you!

We have yet to add up all the donations that the children brought in for Children in Need, we will let you know the total once it has been counted.  Many thanks to parents for your donations, it is much appreciated.

Remembrance

On Friday 10th November Rev Nigel came to school to take a Remembrance assembly with the children.

The whole school walked to the churchyard at St Faith's Church, Kilsby and stood beside the war memorial, where they held a 2 minute silence at 11.00 am to remember all those who died for us during the world wars. Mr How read 'Flanders Fields' and Holly and Dylan both read a poem.

All the children had made poppies in their classes during the week, and these were placed inside the church.

Rowan Class Find Out About The Digestive System!

On Monday 6th November Rowan class learnt all about the digestive system!

Firstly, they used drumsticks as teeth to grind and chew (crush up) the bread. 

Then they used a toilet roll tube to act as the oesophagus.

The bread travelled down this and into a plastic bag, the stomach, and was then mixed with water, stomach acid, which broke down the bread.   

They used their hands to squeeze the broken down bread, just like our muscles do when it is in our stomach. 

From the stomach the food travelled to the large intestine, our balloon. Here the nutrients  from the food goes through tiny pin size holes into our blood stream. 

The remainder of the food is waste and goes through the small intestine and out through the rectum.

Science in Cherry Class

In science today, Cherry class have been comparing trees and have been observing the differences between various types of leaves they found. 

The children collected the leaves in the nature garden and afterwards they used magnifying viewers to look at the finer details. It was really interesting to compare the differences.
