Outdoor Prayer Space

As part of their outdoor education sessions, our Year 5 pupils organised and ran a ‘Prayer Space’ in the woodland area, giving everyone a chance to reflect on some of the bigger questions of life, that we don’t always have time to think about.  The children were very well behaved and the Year 5 were fantastic showing all the other year groups what to do.

Ugly Bug Ball

Pupils in Meldon celebrated the end of their half termly topic with an ‘Ugly Bug Ball’.  All of the children made ‘bug’ hats and some even dressed up for the occasion!  During the afternoon, parents and carers heard some of the songs and stories that the children had learnt over the past few weeks and ate cakes and biscuits made by the children and decorated with different bug designs.
