Welcome back to a new school year, and a special welcome to the children and families that have joined us for the first time this year.
We hope that by now most children have started to settle into their new routines and are becoming familiar with the new teacher and classrooms.
During the summer holidays we have had some extensive renovations and although not all are complete, as part of our school improvements we have had new Nursery toilets, which are now modern, clean and bright to match our Reception classes, and work is well underway with our new Study Room; and it won’t be long before we have this up and running.
As you may have notice, Surestart have now moved from the premises and we have now renovated those rooms back into classrooms where our Year 2 classes are now based. Again these are now bright and clean; we also have a new cloakroom area and new toilets. We also have a bright intervention room, used for smaller group of children.
Ending Year 4 on a High, the children have had a fun Activity Day learning about Chembakolli they have explored life and changes in and around a remote Village in India.
Starting off they walked around the school fields pretending to make the 20 minute walk to the school jeep, looking out for wild boars and elephants and writing facts about Chembakolli. They listened to traditional Indian tales, played crickets (the sport they play in Chembakolli schools).
They also tasted fruits grown in Chembakolli and chicken, veg and rice. They finished with ice cream (this is a treat for Chembakolli Children).
Children then watched an Indian dance and performed their own. They have also written their own recount of a day in the life of a child from Chembakolli
