Nature Play 2017

We are so happy that our Nature Play sessions have finally started! Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely, sunny morning exploring the small woodland in the school grounds.
This week we had fun hunting for mini-beasts (we actually found two caterpillars!), putting on a puppet show, making mud soup and endless cups of “daisy” tea, before enjoying snack in our den. We really enjoy these weekly sessions where we can play and learn together in the outdoor environment. Thank you to all the parents who have kindly offered to help with the sessions in the coming weeks.

Innerwick Fire Festival

On 31st January, we recreated Up Helly Aa. Much learning, designing and creating culminated in children, staff, parents and friends following a piper in a procession around the village.

Longboats were burned, songs sung and delicious hot soup was served before the large boat was placed on the fire.

A few of our talented pupils entertained our visitors before the end of the evening.

Many thanks to everyone for their help and support in making this event such a fantastic success.
