KS1 Church Visit

21st Jun 2017

The children had a fantastic afternoon in St. Mary's Church, Shipton under Wychwood. Rev. Kate Stacey and Rev. Anne Hartley worked with a group of volunteers who generously gave up their time and expertise to organise a carousel of activities. This included learning about the stained glass windows, going into the vestry and trying on robes, a treasure hunt finding objects around the church and looking around the churchyard. The children also enjoyed refreshments of squash and biscuits, which were very kindly provided by the volunteers.

John Foster

12th Jun 2017

We had a fantastic afternoon with John Foster, who came in for the afternoon and worked with each class. He performed poems and worked with the children to create a class Castle Poem. The children have since been working on creating their own poems and really enjoyed the opportunity to work with a 'real' poet. They are looking forward to John's return at the end of the month to perform some of their poems.
