Christmas Craft Club

We have been having a really fun time doing Christmas crafts with Mrs Collis this term.
Years 1-4 decorated gingerbread men and Christmas sleighs. The gingerbread men have been strung on coloured wool like bunting and the sleighs have been hung on our library Christmas quilt which Mrs Collis made a couple of years ago. Both will be displayed in the library from next week when we put our Christmas decorations up. Children will be able to take their decorations home at the end of the term.
Our older girls have started making a beautiful Christmas star (a completed one held by Mrs Collis) and will complete these next week.
We have been very lucky indeed to have the enthusiastic help of Mrs Murray, Mrs Randall and Mrs Entwisle with these projects.

2018 Art Exhibition

Carncot pupils are indeed fortunate to have the skilled visual arts teaching of Vicki Sinclair.

If you have not already done so, please take the time to go upstairs and view the stunning art works on display! Our theme this year has been to integrate the art learning with the children’s written language work. You will be impressed with the results!

Welcome to our Vietnamese guests!

It has been an exciting week as we welcomed our Vietnamese friends to our school and homes.

On Monday morning they bravely gave a presentation to the school about their country and culture.  We hope they have a wonderful time experiencing schooling and kiwi life in New Zealand!

Diwali Festival

Diwali is a festival of lights and it is celebrated by millions of Indians. The festival, which is the Indian New Year, celebrates new beginnings and the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. Those celebrating the festival also light traditional diyas (candles) and decorate their houses with colourful rangoli, artworks which are patterns created on the floor using colourful powder or rice. During Diwali, families and friends share sweets and gifts and there is also a strong belief in giving food and goods to those in need. It is also traditional for homes to be cleaned and new clothes to be worn at the time of the festival. This year on 5th November we took part in a traditional Indian dance organised by the Indian Association.

Carncot students Juhi, Surya, Emily, Kareena, Jiya, Dia, Vrunda and Dhruvi.
