Friday 8th November

Did you know that everyone in Cherry Blossom won the cup this week for being excellent representatives of Blean Primary on our visit to the cathedral last week?smiley

During the week we collaborated on our next Hall display and then we chopped and peeled lots of vegetables to make vegetable soup, just like the food medieval pilgrims would eat. We tasted it at the end of the afternoon – delicious!

But the highlight of the week was on Friday….

We had an energetic start to the morning walking like pilgrims on a journey to the Westgate Towers to meet Hugh the medieval pilgrim.  He walked with us to the cathedral where we had a busy morning finding out about and retelling the story of Thomas Becket.  We all enjoyed the other learning experiences too – practising chipping away at stone like a stonemason, writing with feather quills and printing with illuminated letters.   Luckily we caught the double decker bus back to school because there was more excitement to come as it was the school disco!

We have been completing our Walter Tull paintings and Paper plate poppies for Remembrance Day. Our pebbles will be on display outside school on Monday, 11th November.
