    The change quiz

    This is most fun if it is done in pairs. The

    idea is that you should rate how you would

    feel about the change:0 I would hate this to happen

    1 I wouldnt like this to happen

    2 I don't care if this happens

    3 I would like this to happen

    4 I would love this to happen more than


    Read the changes together then rate them.

    Your child might like to fill in the num-


    When I was young

    This activity is great fun to do with an

    older person, maybe a grandparent or eld-


    neighbour. As we get older we can find

    ourselves saying, When I was young

    Talk about what you did and decide

    whether the things are the same or differ-


    You might like to draw the thing that is

    most different.

    Love is the sun, the god and the air,

    Love is the happiness and the time that we spare,

    Love is Jesus, love is the cross,

    Love moved the boulder to show them whos boss.

    Love is the life that is always spoken,

    Love is the knife to make your heart broken.

    Love is good and love is bad.

    Love is happy and love is sad. Clark Russell 6B

    This is an example of some of the work undertaken last week on the CRIBs bus. Many thanks to their staff.

    Peanut Allergies

    Please can we remind everyone that we are a Peanut Free school in our cooked meals and we ask

    parents not to put any nuts or items containing nuts in their childs packed lunches. Thank you

    FOB News

    FOB would like to ask parents to think about placing orders for new

    uniform for September now. They were very busy at the new entrants

    meeting last week taking orders and it would help them to clear some of

    the demand from the rest of the school before the summer holidays.

    Order forms are available in the entrance hall or see Mrs Cane (3WH)
