Day 4 Carnival Day at St Vincent’s

It’s party time. St Vincent’s parents were out in force cooking their national dishes. We ate and sang and danced!  But it was time to say to goodbye to our Turkish friends  with presents…

Greek Day

On Friday we celebrated Greek Day at St Vincent’s. We wore blue and white, the colours of the Greek flag. We found out lots of information, especially about Heraklion in Crete where our friends live.  We watched some Greek dancing and had a go ourselves. In class we wrote stories  in the style of a Greek myth. Some of us painted pictures of the characters  or buildings we had read about. Others made clay pots and tiles or jewelery.

Parish Visitors

On the first Tuesday of each month we are delighted to welcome visitors from the parish to come and have lunch with the children. This week the children from Year 5 showed some of our visitors around the library and computer suite.  They explained how to keep safe on the internet.
