Week Ending 12th June 2009

On Tuesday, four Parish Councillors visited our School, and had a lengthy tour, encompassing both buildings and grounds. They were impressed by our thriving allotment; newly refurbished pond; bird hide; and wonderful gardens. We have two new additions to our School - Barry and Betty, our sculpture snails, designed and made by Badgers class! If you come along to "Open Gardens", on Sunday 14th June, between 12 o'clock and 5 o'clock, you will be able to meet the snails personally, and experience our immaculate and colourful grounds as you tour our School. We will be serving cream teas too. Look forward to seeing you.

It will be a hectic weekend, as our Summer Fayre is on Saturday 13th June, 12 - 2.30pm. come along and experience fun and games; stalls; tasty lunches and many other attractions.

Year four children had a netball session with a visiting P.E. specialist this week, and on Friday there was tennis for younger children and soccer too - what more could we offer??!!

Our afternoon topic has been science. Hedgehogs and Squirrels have been out and about in the grounds (field/gardens/pond/allotment), investigating living things. Rabbits have been looking at the human body, and discovering all about lung capacity by seeing how many breaths it took to blow up a plastic bag! Badgers have been investigating habitats for snails (no, not Barry and Betty!) It's not often that we have had dozens of snails in on e room before, but they enjoyed their brief visit and proved to be very lively!

Remember, please support us this weekend. We always welcome new faces!
