Our Year 5 cricketers did us proud at Little Lever Cricket Club today. Good skills,great sportsmanship - the organisers and umpires made of point of telling me that their behaviour and manners were a credit to the school. Well done!
Because we had the whole universe in the dining hall - see previous blog - we dined 'al fresco' at lunchtime.
WOW Week continues today with the arrival of a giant dome filling the hall. As part of 'Space Day', all children will be visiting the planetarium to learn about the wonders of the universe. I've had a sneak preview and it's VERY impressive!
The theme of our Science WOW Week is 'Journeys' and how better to illustrate 'Flight' than with a visit from some VIOs (Very Important Owls). All classes had a chance to get up close and personal with four feathered friends.
Two hundred paper planes - all bearing a question of scientific interest - take to the air during assembly. All questions will be answered by the children and then returned to flight on Thursday. It was a great way to launch our WOW Week.
It's a VERY special week at St Stephen's and Miss Kinsey launched our Science WOW Week in style this morning. (Note all the paper aeroplanes ready for takeoff!)
I LOVE Friday lunchtimes! I get to sit and chat with the previous week's Star Award winners (and a free lunch!). Well done to everyone on Top Table this week.
Three brilliant writers from Reception Class knocked on my door this afternoon to share their stories with me. I was VERY impressed!
