Today, the children in Year One walked to St John's Church. They learnt all about the altar, stained glass windows, the font and many more artefacts. They finished the visit by singing songs from their upcoming Nativity performance, their voices filled the church beautifully. Thank you very much to our fabulous children, volunteers and, of course, to Father Tim and Mother Emily as always.

As part of Design and Technology, Year One designed their own fruit salads. The children handled and tasted different fruits and decided which ones they liked and disliked. They then wrote a list of which fruits they would like to have in their fruit salad and drew a sketch of what their fruit salad will look like. Ask your child what their favourite fruit was!
