From farmyard visits, though to trips and roadshows, there is never a dull moment at Glenesk.
Our prize giving and speech day was a lovely way to round off a wonderful term and say farewell to our Year 2s. The children gave some lovely performances of singing and music and then after the prizes were given out everyone sat down to a delicious lunch together. Goodbye Year 2s and best of luck in your next schools – we will miss you!
‘On your marks, get set, go!’ We were so impressed by the sporting talents of the Nursery & Rising Reception children, siblings and not forgetting the Mummys and Daddys! It was a beautiful day and much fun was had by all. Everyone was then able to enjoy their picnics and Nonie’s packed lunches in the glorious sunshine.
Glenesk was honoured to have a royal visit from our very own Glenesk Queen today to celebrate her 91st birthday. There was much flag waving and excitement. She arrived in her Chauffeur driven car and was presented with a posy by our House Captains and all of the children sang to her. Before our Royal lunch, she judged our painting competition and presented the winners
There was much excitement in the whole school as after 21 days in the incubator Fluffy, Polo and Pearl have arrived to join the Glenesk family. Miss Powell is a very proud mother. All of the children have been to meet them. Year 2 have been studying them and capturing every stage of their development in a Chick Diary and have designed Powerpoints to present
It was African day today for Year 2 who made their own tie dye african outfits and some intricate bead lizards. The whole school also got to enjoy a delicious moroccan lamb dish for lunch thanks to Nonie, and some children enjoyed trying out the authentic method of eating it with their fingers!
Rising Reception had another visitor for their ‘people who help us’ topic. This time a vet from the Cape Veterinary Clinic came and Mrs Pain also brought her lovely pet Collie Cora in for the vet to examine. The children were very excited to hear Cora’s heartbeat through the stethoscope!
Rising Reception have been learning all about ‘people who help us’ this term and so far they have had visits from the Fire Service, the Police and St John Ambulance with all their vehicles and sirens, plus doctors, vets and dentists have been in to talk to them about their jobs.
