Notices and Reminders
Year 1 had an interesting afternoon this week where they were introduced to Footgolf, where you use your feet to kick a football into targets. This was a great opportunity for the children to learn a new sport and compete against local schools. The teams did really well, and we came 2nd and 3rd place.
For the Year 1 WOW Day, the children dressed up as animals and got to meet many curious creatures including a bat, tarantula, tortoise and baby meerkats. The children loved learning about the different animals and having a go at handling some of these creatures. This was a wonderful end to their curious creatures topic.
School Council-Meeting with Herts Catering
Last Friday the School Council met with Mrs Brown from Herts Catering to talk about the school lunches. The children requested that the pizza be cut up into triangles to make it easier to eat, have unlimited salad and bread and cold pasta available to add to their main meal. The children wanted pesto and chocolate mousse but because these foods contain allergy ingredients they could not be added to the menu. Some of the food the children didn’t like as much was the pancake and cherry dessert and the skin on jacket potatoes. We talked about the potatoes needed the skin to keep the potato together and without they would not be jacket potatoes.
The Mothers Union of St Peters are re-starting the Traveling Crib, which is a group of knitted figures in a small basket goes from family to family throughout the parish, ending up at St Peters church in time for the Crib service on Christmas Eve. This year this tradition has been revived and Victoria School will be having the crib for the week commencing Monday 5 December to Friday 9 December.
To 'apply' to have the crib to stay the children need to colour in a Christmas picture which will be emailed out. This is signed by the parents to say they are willing to host the crib and the winners are drawn from these entries. Paper copies can be collected from the office.
Due to an external promotion of one of teaching assistants we have an exciting new opportunity for a full time Teaching Assistant to work at Victoria starting after Christmas. For more details and to apply click here.
