Funky shoe day

Dear parents,

Over the past few weeks we have come together and made a pupils council.We plan to make the school a more child friendly place.We had the idea that we should hold a funky shoe day for mental health and self awarrness week !!!We hope to do more activities like this in the future.We meet once a month and discuss things that we could improve around the school for instance to get new basket balls or to get new books in the library. We hope that by the end of the school year every child in the school will have come up with one idea to help them enjoy school more.Thank you for taking the time to read this.

From Rachel,Ella,Kate,Darren,Rory and Philip.

SPRING GARDENING

The hard work has started in our school garden as we get ready for this years Schools Pride of Place. The spuds have been planted in the poly tunnel. Seeds have temporarily been planted in small pots, they will be transferred into the beds at later stage when more mature. Two Mountain Ash trees have been planted near our Bug Hotel. Students are well used to bringing in their wellies ready for some digging, planting and general maintainance of our school grounds. We hope to add some new scarecrows and wind chimes this year. Let the hard work continue...

5th GREEN FLAG

A massive congratulations to Mrs Sherwin and her Green Schools Committee. Due to their hard work our school has been awarded our 5th Green Flag Biodiversity !!

As a whole school we are immensley proud to have our 5th Green Flag. We have learned so much about Biodiversity and its impact, not just what we can change at school but in our wider community. Guest speakers have educated us as to the importance of every growing and living thing around us. Our committee has been hands on reminding us to recycle correctly, look after our birds and insects and to maintain a healthy welcoming garden for us humans and all our creatures to enjoy and thrive.

We hope to raise our Flag soon. Well done to all involved.

Healthy Cooking with Pauric

We had a great day recently when we all went to our local hall and met with Pauric and Irene White for a cookery demonstration. Everyone got to be hands on to make delicious brown bread. We got to "meet the fish" and were very lucky that Pauric and Irene brought us in a great variety of fish to see. Next we boned and chopped up a salmon, added it to breadcrumbs and lightly fried it. To end this fantastic cooking day we all had pancakes. All children and staff agreed it was great fun, but more importantly we all learned that cooking from good fresh ingredients made the most delicious tasty food that we ate heartily. A huge thank you to Pauric and Irene for this amazing day.
