Trip to the Gurdwara

Thursday, 22 March 2018

Year two enjoyed their visit to the Gurdwara in Coventry. We were met by Mr Dhaliwal who took us all round the building. The children were able to hear all about the Sikh religion, see the prayer hall with the holy book and the Langar where warm food is available daily. All the children were given a bag of crisps and a drink – the offering of food is very much a part of the Sikh religion.

Langar is the term used in Sikhism for the community kitchen in a Gurdwara where a free meal is served to all the visitors.  Everything we saw was interesting and very beautiful.

Thank you again to parents who came in for the Art afternoon.

Year 5 children began painting their moonscapes.

Parents were a great help and the children were happy to let them work hard on their sculptures (I think they worked harder than the children!).

Our birds have fledged!

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

We came in yesterday to find that three of our birds had fledged over the weekend, there was just one left in the nest. Within the hour the last one flew the nest. Nursery staff found it perched, in hopefully a safe spot, away from the magpies beady eyes. Later in the morning it too had gone. We think its a Great Tit, would any bird experts out there agree?
