Hello one and all and welcome back to A Rural Review. This week began with beautiful sunshine and ended in torrential rain, which let’s hope is not a metaphor for England’s chances at the European Championships, which of course kick off tonight in Paris. But enough about football, we here at Rural Review strive to be different than the England football team, because when we promise much we deliver real results, not just disappointment, despondency and regret (if we win the Euro’s this blog will look very silly, but we are prepared to take that risk..) So we have a load of activities to talk about and also some other fun things you should keep your eyes peeled for – let’s begin shall we?
What’s been happening
Saturday was a pretty special one for our Art Club kids, who enjoyed a brilliant day out at The Dorman Museum. Alongside students from Acklam Grange School they discovered the design talents of Dr Christopher Dresser through a fabulous talk by the museum staff, and then the group got stuck in (pun intended) to making plaster tile press moulds. The results were brilliant and we want to say a huge thank you to The Dorman for being so welcoming, and making the day as good as it was! Our art club is fully booked at the moment, but make sur your keep your eyes peeled for September, when it will be returning for the Autumn Term.
|Only a week to go…
As we have made abundantly clear in our introduction – there is nothing that quite compares to a historical game of footie: especially one in which England come out on top! So why would you even flinch at the chance to experience the whole story of the ’66 World cup on the 30th July. Not only will there be match footage, brilliant stories, and amazing songs from the year there will also be some football legends making this one of our truly unmissable events. All I can say is if you don’t click HERE to sign up – what are you playing at?!
