An ‘egg-cellent’ time was had by all as our ‘egg-ceptionally’ well behaved and very ‘egg-cited’ children took part in the Friends of St Loys (FoSL’s) Easter Egg Hunt 2022 – ‘egg-stra’ special this time, as we’ve missed the last few – great ‘egg-cercise’ too ????

Science: Exploring Rocks with Squirrels Class

Mrs Watts didn’t need much of an excuse to make rocky road with Squirrels class, but to make it sound like a science lesson about rocks sounds a bit far fetched ?

The children have learnt about igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, and so they crushed biscuits (sedimentary), melted chocolate (igneous) and stirred in marshmallows and Rice Krispies (more igneous). It was then tipped into a tray and compacted down (metamorphic). It was left to cool and solidify overnight before being taken home. A very enjoyable science lesson.

Happy New Year

Remembrance

Our children of St Loys have once again shone brightly this week as they have each demonstrated their understanding and respect for Armistice Day and the significance of laying poppy wreaths at a memorial.

Even our youngest Hedgehogs stood with quiet reverence yesterday as we observed a two-minute silence for all those who have lost their lives in recent conflicts as well as the World Wars. Each child laid a poppy or stone underneath our school cross as we said prayers and gave thanks and remembrance.
