Taunton School Main Building at Dusk

Unusual Vistors

Posted: 16th May 2019


I write this during playtime on a bright morning, as the children enjoy being taxi drivers – picking up and negotiating with their fare paying passengers — on our much-loved bikes. It really is such a privilege to listen to the children’s conversations. I have also been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the summer production rehearsals – very exciting!

We had some unusual visitors to the Pre-Prep playground on Monday morning. As part of Nursery Four’s ‘Down on the Farm’ topic, all the children enjoyed seeing Rosie and Brenda. They were also lucky enough to feed and pet the five-week-old spring lambs. Thank you to Chloe Webber for organising the silage and this whole, very valuable, hands-on experience. I am sure that the children are now well prepared for next week’s Court Farm visit.

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for Wednesday evening’s Cheese, Wine and ‘Wriggling to Writing’ workshop. I hope that you found this pre-writing skills session really informative and you enjoyed linking the progression from physical play, core strength and gross motor skill movement to strengthening the children’s fine motor skills and eventually writing.

This morning, I have enjoyed joining the Year Two children at their TPS transition morning on Uppers. I know the children had fun taking part in a variety of team building activities along with getting to know the Year Three children and staff.

I look forward to joining the Year Two parents at next Tuesday’s Transition to TPS Meeting in Centenary Hall from 7.30 – 8.30 pm.

Finally, to all of you who came to the Summer Fair today, thank you for your continued support of the school.

Have a good weekend.
