There have been lots of exciting things happening in school over the Summer term.
The children have celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday by having a giant street party at school. They have also learnt Archery and Fencing skills. A favourite activity was Archery where pupils had to aim at targets and shoot at different objects. Mrs Proffitt the Head Teacher has told the children they can do more archery in the future as they were so good at it.
She said ‘it was great seeing the children’s smiley faces’.
For the party pupils all dressed in red, white and blue and made shields and crowns for the Queen. The school finished the day with a celebration PRAISE time with our church visitors from St Luke’s where Mrs Proffitt demonstrated what being a ‘servant queen’ meant by pretending to be Jesus and wash her disciple’s feet. It was really funny!
On Saturday 11th June celebrations continued with the school summer fayre which went off to a flying start with a visiting helicopter. The children enjoyed union jack and England face painting, tombola’s, pampering, games, ice-creams, paint a pot and much more.
Bailey said ‘It was a great day. I enjoyed learning to write in Japanese!’
In school the children have had many brilliant learning opportunities, working with other cluster schools exploring mini-beasts, the Olympics and Astronomy. They have also has an empty classroom day where children decorated union jack plant pots, made dens, looked at plants (wild and garden) and looked for different species in our school environment. The teachers all worked really hard to make this day really fun. The children learnt so much.
The pupils look forward to many more exciting and fun days at Tittensor CE (VC) First School where ‘as we care for one another we grow and learn together’.
