Words from the children:

Max: “The Buddhist temple had a very nice garden and it felt peaceful.”

Romina: “The temple is very good, I go to the temple and I’m doing a picture of Buddha.”

Hussein: “At the temple, there was a man, he looked funny. He told us a story and we meditated and we saw superman on the wall”

Madisson: “The temple was very pretty and I even met my dad. A guy taught us how to do meditation and even showed us Superman in one of the pictures.”

World Book Day

We had a very successful World Book Day, both children and teachers dressed up in very creative ways.

Here is a word from some of the children:

Max: “I was Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid because I like that character.”

Iona: “I was Alice in Wonderland because I have read the book. I enjoyed the day because I got book tokens”.

Turiiya: “I was Omri from the Indian in the Cupboard, I like the book and I got the third book for free.”

Madisson: “I was Jessie from Toy Story, I read the book and it’s not bad. I enjoyed the free book tokens”

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.
