Hightown. Brilliant! Terrific! Ryan has Abbie has passed passed his her Puffin 100m Swimming award Rainbow & Stage 1 Swimming National Award. Swimming Plan Super! Award. Fantastic! Shinewaves Competition Time Last week’s competition was to see how many words (which can be found in a dictionary) you could make from the words WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. The winner with 98 words from 2M was Rachel Hooton. Congratulations Rachel! This week’s competition is a spring celebration. The Floralia or Florifertum, was an ancient Roman festival dedicated to Flora, the goddess of flowers and the season of spring. The festival lasted from 28 April to 3 May and celebrated the cycle of life. Flowers decked the temples and Roman citizens wore colourful clothing instead of the usual white, and there was much dancing and other festivities. Customs from the Floralia festival are still evident in throughout England today: ‘Dressing the Well’, occurs in the Peak district of England in small villages each summer. Well-dressing involves pressing flowers, leaves and other natural materials into a clay-lined frame to create a design or picture So this week’s competition is to create a design or picture from natural materials.Pop your entries in the competition post box outside the hall or hand in at the office, by Tues 3rd May with your name and class on the back.
