We had a wonderful afternoon in Foundation on History Day. The children and adults all looked fantastic dressed up as different people from History. We followed the theme of Royalty in our activities and in our house groups each child turned into a Prince or Princess and created a bejewelled crown. They then visited the Royal kitchens and prepared their own tea party cakes using of course, Royal Icing. All of the Foundation team were incredibly proud of the children and how well they worked together. It was a pleasure to see the excitement and wonder on their faces throughout the day. We look forward to our next special day.
The children in pre-prep had a fabulous afternoon dressed up as their favourite characters from the past. After the excitement of the cake sale the children all took part in some historical themed activities during the afternoon. Working together in their Hobby Groups the children made some medieval gingerbread whilst listening to some medieval music. It was really exciting to taste the flavours and the smells of the ginger, honey, cloves and basil which decorated the gingerbread. The children also got the opportunity to learn some facts about Mary Anning and her discoveries in Lyme Regis of fossils. The children got an opportunity to make their own salt dough fossils which was great fun!
