The Jungle Book
Since we came back form the Easter holiday, the whole school has been studying The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. Today, as a special treat, Reception to Year 6 watched a spectacular live performance of this book. Most of the characters were animals such as Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear, though the principal character was a boy or “man-cub” called Mowgli, who was raised in the jungle by wolves. The children had a brilliant morning; their learning literally came to life. There were a few hairy raising moments but we all survived and more importantly, so did poor ole Mowgli, who was reunited with his mother right at the end. Thank you to M and M Theatrical Productions for visiting us.
A message from our friends at St James’ Church:
I’m Carole, one of the flower team at St James’s Church. At Christmas the pupils at your school kindly gave us a beautiful planted garden as a gift. Since then, we have nurtured the plants and kept them watered because we wanted to use them in our Garden of Repose (for the service on Maundy Thursday) and in the Easter Garden, for today, Easter Sunday.
We thought that you would like to know that we have re-used your gift in keeping with the seasons in the Church calendar.
I have attached the pictures of the gardens for you to see.
On behalf of us all here at St James, very many thanks for your kind gift.
What a lovey message to receive!
I just want to extend our thanks to you all for your support collecting Tesco’s Blue Tokens. We will find out at the end of the month if we have been successful. In the mean time, please keep everything crossed for us. It would be amazing to be able to spend some money on our playground environment for our children.
Enjoy the long bank holiday weekend!
