Well, here we are at the end of another busy week at Eynsham Primary.  The Year 5s had a wonderful time at Hill End, we have elected our eight new Year 6 house captains, and the first three pieces of work have been placed on our new Golden Board in the hall.  Today Jill Plant, of Jill Plant Photography, spent some time around the school capturing children hard at work and then at play, and I am really looking forward to sharing those photographs with you on this site and on our reception TV screen in the coming weeks.

Today, myself and our deputy headteacher, Mrs Roberts, enjoyed spending time in every class looking at behaviour and learning, as we do regularly.  During our visit to Bobcats Class, we were struck by this piece of descriptive writing from Laurie, which I really wanted to share with you.

As you enter the awe-inspiring mass of the forest, the first thing you notice will be the autumnal orange of the leaves on the dark trees silhouetted against the creeping sunlight.  Underfoot, you spot a crinkly auburn mass of thousands of pieces of fallen bracken.  Looking up, you shield your eye against the dazzling sunlight illuminating the glorious crimson flowers.  Above them, the spidery branches reach out to the beckoning thorns.  Suddenly, you catch a glimpse of majestic stages with horns like branches of a river, their chestnut blending with the mahogany of the tress.”

Have a lovely weekend!
