It was great to see so many parents and members of our community join us for our Remembrance Service on Tuesday 11th November at 10.50am. Heavy rain had been falling throughout the night but by the time we began our service, this had abated.
The Rev Tony Monds (one of our Governors) led the service next to the War Memorial. Wreaths were laid and we all observed the 2 minute silence, remembering the dead in two world wars and other conflicts. The exhortation was read by Mr Jon Waddell, our Chair of Governors – resplendent in his Police uniform. After the Last Post and Revielle, children and members of the community created a field of poppies around the memorial planting wooden and paper poppies made by the children. (Photo below taken by Vice Chair of Governors Mr Paul Gammaidoni) The second part of our service was in the church. After the National Anthem, children presented information on poppies, peace, the trenches and read poems inspired by the war poets. Our service ended with the beautiful song ‘Let there be peace on Earth’ At the conclusion of the service, a retiring collection raised £134 for the Poppy Appeal.
We welcomed Mrs Reeve and Mr Penfold from the Dorset Music Service to school to show children a variety of wind instruments. We enjoyed music from the flute, clarinet, recorder, trumpet, trombone and a hosepipe with a watering can on! The children had plenty of time to try every instrument and ask lots of questions. It was a fantastic experience and great fun. Have a look at the pictures here
On Wed 12th November, just 6 children from Kingfishers will travel to IPACA on Portland to take part in a Kidsmeet. They will spend the day sharing technology with other children from IPACA and DASP. There will also be opportunities to Skype with schools across the world, to see 3D printing in action and to explore the IPACA Inspiration Lab. The children have spent the last few weeks preparing to present information on the Scratch Computing app on our iPads.
