Here is the latest news from the Redwoods at the Pioneer Centre:
The excited Redwoods (and their teddies!) are now well on their way to the Pioneer Centre for their residential visit. They have lots of fun activities to look forward to over the next couple of days.
The travellers arrived safely after a relatively short journey. They settled into their rooms, made their beds and had lunch. They now have two activities in their groups before dinner time.
Monday activities: It looks like a long way up there…
It looks as though everyone had lots of fun during Tuesday’s activities:
We were very excited to welcome MP Bill Wiggin to our assembly this afternoon. Mr Wiggin brought with him the fantastic flag designed by Redwood Class. The flag has been flying in Parliament Square and at Runnymede, but has now come home to Luston:
What a lovely afternoon we had at our Summer Fayre. The sun didn’t quite manage to shine, but it stayed dry and lots of fun was had by all.
We were entertained by Mr Morgan’s Samba Band and members of Dance Club. The highlight for some was taking part in Mr Morgan’s football tournament – everyone who took part put in a great effort for their teams. There were lots of fantastic stalls – a big well done to members of Redwood Class for their imaginative stalls, plus thanks to everyone who helped with running stalls, setting up and clearing away. Our first balloon race was a great success and provided a fantastic photo opportunity as over 300 balloons were released.
The fayre has raised approximately £950 for the FLSA, plus a further £270 from the balloon race which forms part of our fundraising for the poultry project for Manyata School in Tanzania.
More photos to follow soon, but here are just a few:
Redwood Class spent a fantastic morning at Wigmore High School last week. The ‘Mini Masterchefs’ made Tanzanian Rice and Beans, you can find the recipe here: Tanzanian Rice and Beans .
Here are some of their comments:
“I enjoyed making the sauce”
“It was lots of fun”
“I enjoyed trying new ingredients”
