As you can see from the above photos, the Foundation Phase had a wonderful time in Church on Wednesday afternoon. We attended the mock wedding ceremony of our beautiful bride and handsome groom. The wedding party included the best man, father of the bride, bridesmaids, pageboys and ushers. Everybody took on their role very seriously and the wedding guests excitedly watched the ceremony unfold.

World Book day

Pupils from year 5 and 6 enjoyed spending time with the Reception/Year 1 pupils today as part of our World Book Day celebrations! Lots of stories were shared and all the pupils had a fantastic time. Here are the pupils in their wonderful costumes!

Tan Bach gets Baptised!

Pupils in both classes had a very exciting afternoon taking Tan Bach to be baptised by Reverend Melia at St Edward’s church. A special font was used at the front of the church and the children loved watching Tan Bach receive the sign of the cross on his forehead. The parents, Godparents and candle bearer did a fantastic job and took on their roles very seriously. This was part of our Religious education topic ‘Water.’

Chinese New Year Day

WOW!! We loved dressing up for Chinese New Year.

We have all had so much fun today celebrating Chinese New Year with the whole of the Foundation Phase.

We have been so busy, cooking stir fry, making a Dragon for the Chinese Dragon Dance, building the Great wall of China and using our fine motor skills to colour some very tricky Chinese colouring.
