Today is Pentecost Sunday, 50 days after Easter Sunday when we celebrate the appearance of the Holy Spirit. The children in the EYFS have been learning how the wind is similar to the Holy Spirit as it is there but we can't actually see it. A few have made crafts for Pentecost Sunday.
I have received an email from Jack's Mummy this morning to let me know that he has decided that he wants to raise some money to help the children in his Mummy's school in Blackburn. Jack knows that most of the children there aren't as lucky as he is and don't have money to buy treats.
He decided that he would do a sponsored walk and set himself a target of walking 10 miles this week. He had already done 10 miles, including a walk to the top of Longridge Fell in yesterday's hot sun! He has now decided that he will make his target 12 miles!
I am very proud of his awareness of others, his fitness and his determination to complete this challenge. If you would like to follow his progress or make a donation there is a link on Beth O'Neill's Face Book page. Well done Jack- keep on walking!
Some lovely pictures this week of our volume and capacity activities. We were also looking at the weather and making charts and Grace has snuck in with a lovely belated VE day picture.
The children (and parents) in the EYFS have risen to the challenge of doing lots of home learning activities related to the story of Jack and the beanstalk. We have amazing story tellers, authors, illustrators, actors, gardeners, builders, explorers and mathematicians in our school.
Key Stage One and EYFS seem to be really in the swing of their home learning, but some people took Friday off for a bit of cake eating, flag waving and other activities to commemorate Victory in Europe day. Here are some photos of what people have been doing this week.
