Foundation Fireworks and Poppies

Over the last couple of weeks the children in Foundation have been busy practicing their scissor skills, cutting shapes to make rockets and used different types of brushes to make different effects as they painted firework pictures, adding generous amounts of glitter to make them sparkle. The children also had great fun flicking white paint onto black sugar paper, to make an effective ‘night

A Fond Farewell & A Warm Welcome

September at St. Helena’s

It’s hard to believe that we have already been back at school for 3 weeks and the Summer seems a distant memory, especially with the amount of rain we have seen over the last few days. The children have settled back into school life with ease and we are especially impressed with Years 1 to 4 who have coped brilliantly with a crash course

Summer Play 2019: Aladdin Trouble

When Mrs Storey was asked to purchase the license to allow the children to perform “Aladdin Trouble”, little did she know that, for a short while at least, Kirmington St Helena’s would be transformed into a mini Hollywood, with script writers, a director, actors and cries of lights, camera, action …… well okay maybe not quite that far ….. but there were lights.
