What a Marvellous Mayfield Week!

Rather than do lots of different news items there is so much to talk about this week we thought we'd do one round-up!

After the excitement of our International Day on Saturday when we were treated to everything from wonderful food to singing, dancing and facepainting the fun just hasn't stopped!

On Monday Key Stage One were treated to an exciting drama workshop based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  There are undoubtly some budding young actors in that year who loved learning about stage directions and how to convey emotion and narrative through voice and movement.

On Tuesday we waved goodbye to our Year 4 Bushcrafters as they left us for 3 days of woodland adventure.  The children built shelters, cooked on open fires and learned lots of outdoor skills.  One night they even slept under a shelter they built themselves.  We've loved hearing about their adventures today.

We've had a very special visitor in school this week too. Terri the Tiger has been busy in school  teaching our Nursery and Reception children valuable road safety rules.  Thank you Terri - come back next year!

On Thursday some year 3s and 4s took part  in a borough tennis tournament at Lammas Park.  Mr Lea and Ms Shah (Shreya and Asha's mum) were very impressed with how our young aces performed even though they'd have very little time to train.  We came 3rd out of 10 schools!  Well done everyone and a special thank you to Ms Shah and Mr Lea.

This afternoon Ms Higginson took a large group of Year 6s to her allotment to see all of the wonderful things that she is cultivating.

After school today we are all looking forward to our Art Week Exhibition where all of us get a chance to appreciate the fantastic work the children did in art week.  And what could be a better end to the week than a cream tea with the Friends of Mayfield?
