27th March 2017

Attendance this week was 97.4% so the class did not have chance to win a certificate. Handshakes totalled 15.

It has been a busy week getting all recent topic work up to date and organised. Our Topic files are looking very nice now – all ready for Parent/Teacher meetings next week.

Button Club/SeWhat
The children in Button Club enjoyed strutting their stuff on the FOYPiB catwalk on Wednesday evening and repeated their fabulous show during Good Work assembly on Friday. I think it is fair to say that taking part in ‘SeWhat’ is a very enjoyable experience! Look out on the Website for the write-up 

Religious Education – Visit and Food Tasting
Wow! What a fascinating visit! We were told all sorts of information by Zaheed at the mosque. He was a really friendly chap who liked to joke along with us whilst also telling us the really important beliefs of all loving and peaceful Muslims. We learnt about the Muslim’s acceptance of all their faiths and understood easily how true Muslims could never be responsible for nasty things that we see happening in the news. True Muslims care greatly for every living thing and would not expect to live on in Paradise after Judgment day if they had done more bad deeds than good.
Here are one or two pictures from the trip….

We have had chance to taste some of the common foods enjoyed by Muslims. Other religious groups of people like Sikhs and Hindus also enjoy these foods and it is fair to say that Christians like these foods too! There is no rule about who can eat what in our country. We tried poppadoms, pakoras, samosas, bhajis, pitta bread with curry sauce and mango chutney.

Poppadoms were my favourite because they had a nice flavour. The vegetable bhaji was my least favourite because it had too much onion in it.

I liked the samosa because it had a nice aftertaste

Red Nose Day
Thank you to all children and members of staff who brought in £1 to put towards our school donation. We should have raised a lot for this great cause. We didn’t get chance to sing the Red Nose Day song but at least we got around to hearing the jokes in class – just! Emily won our little contest with 8 votes!

And finally….Easter Enterprise
I am very pleased to say that we have sold out of Easter wristbands and chocolate egg buckets that the children made. We have earned a nice little sum of money which we intend to split between Bassetlaw Hospice, WaterAid and ourselves 
