Thinking Day 2018

Thinking day

The whole school celebrated Easter today with Thinking Day. The children experienced 5 different 'stations' about Holy Week and Easter in 5 different classrooms. Staff had used lots of resources (and much imagination) to recreate various scenes from the Easter story. The children worked in groups across the years. Many ideas and thoughts were shared throughout the school. Thanks to all the staff, especially Mrs Leake who coordinated the occasion, and also to Dominic and Lesley who also came in to join us and help. Please have a look at the Gallery for some photos of Thinking Day. Some of them are rather dark because low lighting and candlelight was used in a few rooms for ambience/effect.
