Bell Festival

This year St. Giles Church is holding a Bell Festival and we have decorated some bells to add to the collections that will be on display over the next few weeks. Class 1 and 2 Using circles of card and lots of sequins and glitter, the infants created and range of different sized bells by turning circles of card into cones, before being decorated. Class 3 Using clear acetate and glass paints, Class 3 created some beautiful stained glass window bells, which they hope will catch the light in the church. Class 4 Terracotta pots are wonderful, not just for putting plants in, but creating a myriad of other objects, and in this case it was bells. Using a range of bright colours and the obligatory

We Will Remember Them

It has been 100 years since the end of the First World War, and like so many people, we have been commemorating the end of the war, and all those who died in conflict this week. The week started with the Head Boy, Head Girl and members of the school council selling poppies and other merchandise, contributing much needed funds to the Royal British Legion and their work supporting Forces families. Over the week children in all classes learned why Remembrance was so important and created an array of beautiful poppies which were used as part of an art installation on Friday afternoon.
