What a super end to the term! Pupils, parents/carers and staff enjoyed a fun packed Easter Assembly. Pupils joyfully sang the songs they’d been practising over the half term which included ‘It’s a beautiful day in Springtime’ and ‘Yellow Daffodils’. Following the success of Easter Bingo last night, the raffle was drawn and pupils eagerly awaited their name to be called for the chance to win a spectacular Easter hamper and delightful Easter eggs. The final FINS certificates were awarded to pupils who raised money earlier in the term and Mrs MacLauchlan praised and thanked pupils for their effort in supporting LOROS. She presented a WHS voucher to the pupil in each class who raised the highest amount of money and a much sought after WIS Bear was awarded to a pupil in Year 2 for raising a phenomenal amount!
Science Club certificates were also presented by Miss Ellis and Mrs Ratcliffe was finally available to give out the lovely keep-sake Forest School books to pupils who had had the chance to work outside during the term. After singing the ‘Easter Bonnet’ song each year group paraded their amazing Easter bonnets/headgear! Well done children – what a lot of effort you’ve put into making them. Pupils were reminded that decorated eggs would be on display for the remainder on the morning and each class would have the chance to admire them. Pupils were reminded of the meaning and reason we have Easter and we all stood to sing ‘We have a King…’
Finally it was time to say our thank yous and goodbyes to Mrs Ratcliffe and Mrs Moore. Mrs Ratcliffe quite obviously loved her ‘traditional WIS sendoff’ which included a song, reflecting her outgoing character! She was delighted to receive her Westfield Bear as well. We will REALLY miss Mrs Ratcliffe for her outstanding input and expertise in our outdoor learning curriculum. Mrs Moore was presented with a beautiful orchid for her support this term.
THANK YOU to all who attended and if you couldn’t make it, here’s a taster of morning…
HAVE A FANTASTIC AND SAFE EASTER!
