What do you get if you cross Plastic Prates with Eucharist and an Easter Bonnet ParAde?....A Recipe for a Rich and fulfilling week in the Life of a Homefield Child!

In this section...

World record for the longest blog heading ever! Ha ha. 

Not sure where to start this week! 

Firstly, has to be the play. I have been involved in many productions in my time as a teacher but Plastic Pirates has to be one of the very best I've seen. The casting of the characters, the singing, the costumes, the enthusiasm of the children and the topically important environmental message that has been reinforced, all contribute to its success. Not to mention the proud looks of you, the parents, as your child stood on stage beaming, whether they had one line, sang in the chorus or had a main part, I am equally proud of them all. 

Thursday we had Eucharist Day, starting off with a trip to our beautiful local church where Rev Martin set the scene for the day of activities to come. Mr Young had planned a series of activities back at school to enable the children to immerse themselves in a part of the very important Christian festival.  Ask your child to tell you all about it. 

Thank you for the Easter bonnets.  I know as children get older they are less inclined to parade round in front of the school so it was nice to see Reef win the Year 4 competition, particularly as he was the only boy from the class! However, as Mr Young proved, you are never too old to join in the fun. 

It is hard to imagine returning to school when we have such a lovely long break to enjoy first but Tuesday the 23rd April will soon be upon us. We will be starting our new topic of Geography when we return. We focussed on Europe last time we did Geography.  This time we continue with Europe but we will specifically be looking at land use and comparing Europe to other parts of the world. 

We will be learning how to write a speech in English and will be reading the book 'The Accidental Prime Minister' by Tom Mclaughlin.  In maths we will be continuing with decimals. 

Swimming continues. 

Kingswood will soon be here.  We have received the programme of events which I will share with you at the parent meeting on Friday 3rd May at 2.30pm. Please come along if you can. 

I hope you all have a relaxing Easter break, enjoying quality family time together.  The secret word for the week is 'concur'.
