Councillor and Governor, Angela Newton, proudly presented a certificate and donation to the value of £500 to the school allotment so we can purchase new tools! We'd like to say a HUGE thank you for her support!

Year 5 visit care home and deliver fiddle muffs!

On Thursday afternoons I take some of the year 5 pupils across the road to meet, play games and sing with some of the residents from the St Johns care home. It has been really good to see how much the children enjoy it and how well they interact with the residents. I know the residents really look forward to their visits. Recently I found out about Fiddle Muffs and how they could help the residents. Fiddling helps keep them calmer and keep their hands warm. Lots of you sent in wool and pupil’s, parents, grandparents, staff and friends of the school have been busy knitting the muffs.  Last week I took my ’knitters’ from year 5 over the road to present the muffs and as you will see from the photographs we had a lovely time and the muffs were very much appreciated, in fact they absolutely loved them. A big thank to everyone who has contributed in any way.

BULB PLANTING!

We were really lucky to have been selected to receive some free bulbs by Bakker Spalding Garden Company (www.spaldingbulb.co.uk) in June 2015 as a special giveaway to celebrate their 70th birthday! We'd like to say a big thank you to Bakker and we're looking forward to seeing what begins to grow in our nature area when Spring appears early next year.

 

Homework Challenge

In preparation forwe would like the children to design and create an upcycled item that could used in the garden.

We will be taking part in the Lincolnshire Switch Off Challenge on Friday 21st November, aiming to save as much energy as possible by trying to use as little electricity as we can! 

Eco-Warriors are helping to organise and support the school with achieving this!
