The children in Gardening Club have been extremely busy digging, planting and watering the new fruit and vegetables. We have planted potatoes in the big tyre, mange tout, raspberries, rhubarb and beans in the planters so far. There are lots more exciting things to be planted so watch this space!
Meeting a famous author!
We were all very excited to welcome children's author, Neil Griffiths to our school. Neil entertained us all with some of his own stories and demonstrated beautifully how books can really be brought to life. Mrs King became a fluffy sheep, Mrs East became a friendly donkey, Mrs Wakefield became a magnificent duck, Miss Kemble became a frisky horse and Mrs Raven became a beautiful Friesian cow. Mrs Shakespeare got off quite lightly and became Winnie's mummy.
The children played instruments to accompany the stories and all were completely enthralled and engaged.
We hope Neil will come back to visit when we open our new library later this year.
Mavis, our School Learning Dog
Mavis started working with us in May 2022. She is a fox-red Labrador and has the perfect temperament for working alongside children. She listens to children read, she provides a sympathetic ear and enjoys joining in with our Young Carers group.
During our Forest School sessions, we have planted Ash, Hazel and Horse Chestnut trees in our school grounds. We are looking forward to watching them grow.
