We have learnt so much about this special festival including designing and having our own Mehndi designs, writing Eid cards, building Mosques using construction and designing prayer mats. Even the teachers got involved!!


Anti-Bullying Week and Children in Need

16 Nov 2017

This week has been Anti-Bullying Week at Telferscot. Nursery class have been thinking a lot about how we should treat our friends and how to ensure that our Nursery is a happy place to be. We read lots of different stories about animals who needed to be shown how to be kind to others and we made our own Class Charter that the children signed!

The children cut out templates of their hands in blue to represent joining hands against bullying and we got together with the rest of the school in the playground to make a GIANT hand. Take a look at Twitter to see!

Tomorrow is Children in Need and there is so much going on at Telferscot to raise money for this important charity

  • Children may bring £1 and come to school dressed in 80s themed dress up! Mrs Priest has her crimpers ready!
  • Teachers will be doing challenges throughout the day, for example, if Mr Plews raises £100 sponsorship he will wax his legs. Miss Ball is going to cut off her hair. Miss Curry is having food poured over her and Miss Diego is going to do a belly dance in assembly! Bring your spare change along to support this, or donate via ParentPay.
  • After school there will be a 'spotty' cake sale

Please, please, please get involved! It is such a special and important charity to support


This week in Nursery

10 Nov 2017

Nursery have had a jam-packed week learning about Diwali and Remeberance Day. The children have all made Diwa lamps using saltdough and painted and drawn different Rangoli patterns.

We took part in an EYFS assembly to understand a little bit more about why people are wearing poppies at the moment. The children were all very respectful and keen to think about special soldiers in the past and present day. The children all got a special poppy to wear on November 11th.

Next week is both 'Anti-Bullying Week' and 'Children in Need'. On Monday, we will be learning the importance of being kind and caring towards each other at all times. Children are invited to wear odd socks to school to celebrate differences and uniqueness. The whole school will be joining together in the playground to unite against bullying and make a giant friendship hand! Keep your eyes peeled for pictures on the website!

Friday 17th November is Children in Need: 80s theme! Children can come to school dressed in 80s dress up and there will be lots of fundraising events to take part in. Most importantly, you can sponsor a teacher to do a challenge. Here they are...

Miss Ball is cutting off her hair!

Miss Newling is riding a stationary bike alllll day!
