It has been so fun having the dress-up costumes out today and the children have created the funniest panto you’ll ever see! We really should take this on the road.
Our children built a great little shop this lunchtime and started a roaring trade in random log parts. Who knew there was such a demand for them!
Year 1 just love their forest school sessions with Beckie and have been noticing all the details of seasonal changes. This week they collected a variety of leaves from the playground and made their very own autumn trees. A great way to end the week.
Mr Drury took all our harvest donations to the Greenwich Foodbank and they were very grateful for all your generous contributions. They will certainly make a difference. Thanks everyone.
Sad day alert!!! It’s the last day for our wonderful Mrs Montgomery who is officially retiring. Our forest school queen and EYP extraordinaire!! We’re going to miss her so much. She has touched the lives of so many people and we thank her for her commitment to Middle Park, for everything she has done and for everything she is. You’re AWESOME Pat! Have the best retirement ever.
Year 1 Plutus had a fun-filled day at Creekside learning all about habitats. They explored two land and two water habitats. They found lots of animals including snails, slugs a newt and some pond animals.
Year 1 Acanthis have had a happy day at the Creekside Discovery Centre. The children learned so much and had such a great time.
Maths in action. Year 1 Plutus have been buying and selling accessories for their dogs at the pet shop today.
Today is ‘thank a teaching assistant day’ and we want to thank our incredible team of TAs. They really are the beating heart of our school and they make such a difference to so many. Their relationships with our children are so positive and strong, noticing them in class and adapting their learning, listening to them at breaktimes and taking an interest in their lives… understanding them and encouraging them. They support and organise our teachers, they are there for the parents and they never let anyone fall through the net.
Big up the TAs who are not in work today – Jodie, Leighanne, Nikki, Sophie, Michaela and Claire. We appreciate you all and thank you for your incredible hard work.
