Pupils enjoy Puzzle Challenge Day

Last week, pupils from Reception through to Year 6 enjoyed solving a variety of puzzles, when the Happy Puzzle Company visited school.

They worked in small, mixed aged groups and really developed their communication, co-operation and perseverance skills. The hall was filled with the sound of the children’s frustration, deliberation and finally celebration.

Kindergarten and Reception have been learning about Harvest and brought gifts of fruit and vegetables into school.

This week they enjoyed sharing their Harvest performances with their families.

 

In KS1 and KS2, the focus for Harvest has been learning about those who are not as lucky as we are.

The children have provided Harvest gifts for Princess Alice Hospice in Esher and the East Elmbridge foodbank, and enjoyed performing their Harvest songs this week, at their Harvest Services.

'Fun with Food' has been a popular choice with pupils as part of Weston Green’s Thursday Afternoon Activities.  
 
Over the last two weeks, the children have had the opportunity to make pizzas and a healthy fruit salad, which they have all enjoyed immensely. 
 

Pupils in Year 1 and Year 2 have been reflecting on their recent trip to Weald and Downland Museum, where they learned about traditional buildings and building materials and even had a go at thatching a roof.

Message from the Office
   
This week we welcomed parents to the EYFS, KS1 and KS2 Harvest Festival Celebrations. Year 3 children made up Harvest boxes with the gifts donated by the Lower KS2 pupils and these were delivered to the Princess Alice Hospice following the service.
 
The Upper KS2 donated gifts to the East Elmbridge Foodbank, and there was a retiring collection in aid of the Rhema Partnership, the charity through which we sponsor the education of two children in India.
 
Following the half term, we look forward to some exciting theatre trips, sports fixtures, and the annual Parents’ Association Christmas Fayre, during the run up to Christmas.
 
We wish you a restful and enjoyable half term and look forward to seeing the children refreshed and raring to go on Tuesday 5th November.
