In fact, it's been a fairly quiet time all round of late. Yinka was spayed on the Monday of half term and so I spent much of the week puppy minding her. She wasn't allowed out of the cottage other than for a couple of very gentle strolls at the weekend. Today was the first time she's been out in the fields for a fortnight.....it was like lunchtime after a week of wet plays. As a lovely retired lady we often meet remarked...."your dog is completely mad isn't she"...harsh but fair, as they say.
The new term has started well with lots of visits and excitement already. The whole school has been immersing itself in World War One again. Unlike last year when we investigated the lives of young men from Wainscott who lost their lives in the War, this year each class are looking at wider topics linked to the event and will be displaying the range of learning that went on later this week in the main hall. Please do try to pop along to see for yourself, before or after school this Thursday and Friday.
Staff have been hard at work putting up fresh displays in their book corners, on walls and even their doors...here are just some of them.
You will also notice in the entrance hall that we have taken out some of the older sports trophies and put them in storage and are using that cabinet to display some of the incredible art work that the children have been producing with the the help of Ms Storm, our new Art teacher.
