Spring is here!

With the beauty of Spring now upon us, we at Sunrise are now enjoying the sight of our little yellow friends the daffodils as they greet us in the garden. Much fun was had by all at the Vegetarian Lunch fundraiser with our beautiful children providing entertainment.  It was lovely to see parents join in and it certainly was a magic moment when the hall was lifted by a chorus of “abc…”.Many thanks to all who donated fantastic prizes for our raffle. From haircuts to massages, we hope everyone is looking wonderful and feeling relaxed – ready to embrace what looks to be another great term at Sunrise.

Exciting activities to warm up winter evenings.

With the long dark winter evenings just about promising a shard of light, we at Sunrise have been putting our heads together for some exciting events that not only mean us all getting a chance to meet up and have fun but also raise some money for the Nursery and School! It can’t get better than that!  This first of many is a ‘Pop up’ restaurant.  which includes babysitting! This is bound to be popular so book your space fast. The cost will be on a donation basis. We figure somewhere between £10/£20 per head. Bargain!

We are also planning a family quiz night in March (tbc) and of course the annual Vegetarian Lunch. 14March2015 Never to be missed!  Ask any of the old timer Sunrise family (that’s how we see ourselves!) and they will be able to convince you to invite everyone you know (and don’t!) to experience some of Didi’s incredible Indian cooking, with entertainment for all the family thrown in. Keep your eye on the noticeboards for news

Visit to the Museum of Childhood

This term we have been learning the World Wars. We have read ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’, learned to dance the Charleston and visited the Museum of Childhood where we attended a workshop on what life was like for the child evacuees of WW2. We looked at what belongings they would have had and even tried on gas masks.

Trip to the Wallace Collection

On Monday years 5 and 6 attended a fantastic day at the Wallace Collection for a wonderful workshop on armour. The collection is one of the largest, finest and most important in the U.K. “The most exciting part was when we got to make our own piece of armour.”(Eve – yr6)

Winter Performance (Tottenham)

To our singers, dancers, actors, musicians…you made us laugh and cry (with laughter!) you made us proud, entertained and so very happy that we are part of what makes Sunrise so precious. Our endless thanks to Mr A and Titus who worked tirelessly with love and wit to take us to the South Pacific and a special thank you to Haringey Irish Centre for generously offering us their facilities. Let us leave you in 2013 with some pictures and keeping with the Maori theme – we wish you “Ki Ora” (there is no official word in Maori to mean Thank-you and they therefore bid each other to “Be well”…)

Firework Fun

While the rain got the better of our original firework plan, it’s never too late to whizz, whosh and sparkle, especially where there are children (and dads!) around.
