Amazing Alpacas

KS1 had a fantastic morning  when Justin and Baron, two alpacas from Dunreyth Alpacas came to visit us. They walked majestically through reception and down the corridors to visit each class in turn, to the delight of the children and staff. They really were brilliant, so calm and friendly and a little bit amusing too! Thank you Dunreyth Alpacas for bringing your beautiful alpacas into school and helping the children learn lots about the Peruvian alpaca and inspiring them to write such interesting fact files.

Guide Dog fund raising week in KS1

Following on from our fantastic visit from Tiny and his guide dog Gunner we decided that we would hold a fund raising week to raise money for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.  We had various events throughout the week – raffle for a stuffed Guide Dog puppy, raffle for a beautiful cake created by a very kind parent, a dog themed movie night, a cake sale and a pennies for pups collection on the playground.  We all had such an amazing week and hope that our funds will be used to sponsor some guide dog pups.

Tiny and Gunner come to visit KS1

As part of our Learning about others in the Community topic we were lucky enough to be visited by Tiny and his guide dog Gunner.  Tiny told us about how he had become blind and also so many amazing and interesting facts about his guide dog.  The children learned so much about how a blind person carries out everyday tasks and how Gunner helps to keep Tiny both safe and independent. This was such an inspiring and humbling visit. Thank you Tiny and Gunner!

We will miss you lots Mrs Cannell x

After working for 25 years at St Thomas More’s, the lovely Mrs Cannell deserved a fantastic send off on her last day. So Neptune Class put together a plan of action and made bunting, table confetti, dressed the tables and prepared a four course afternoon tea to make her last afternoon with us a very special one.

The children greeted her at the classroom door, each with a tulip and a loving message and then she revealed the vase that the children had secretly been working on during the week. Each child had drawn a flower on the vase and then personalised it with their name.

You will be missed lots Mrs Cannell and we can’t thank you enough for all the love and kindness you have shown to all the children and the families that you have met during your time at STMS. xx
