Miss Chantler's Blog:
This week we have been focusing on the Easter story. The children have been acting parts out and doing activities such as parading with the donkey and waving palm leaves in church (with Bert the donkey at Beckington and acted by Ragstone in Mells); learning about the Passover meal and Seder plate, with some tasting; a group of Y4 Owls acted out the Garden of Gethsemane, inspiring the children to paint images onto pebbles, and Wenlock Class dramatized the crucifixion in church. Two lovely church services which were well attended by parents – thank you!
Beckington School had a day at We are the Curious in Bristol yesterday and have returned to school today enthused about their fabulous experiences. It is a marvelous place full of hands on experiences which our children loved. They also enjoyed workshops for each class, which were challenging but very rewarding.
At Mells we had a delivery of 40 rounds of wood, which the children have enjoyed playing with, before they are sited into our developing forest school area on the field.
At Beckington we are looking forward to our new playground surfacing being done over the Easter break.
I hope you all have a well-deserved break over the Easter holiday and we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 23rd April. This is the day after Easter Monday, which is Mells Daffodil Day – well worth a visit, Mells children will be singing outside the church at 11:00.
