Recently, some of the children in year 3 took part in a litter pick. They explored our school surroundings to collect litter and make it a cleaner and safer environment. The children had so much fun and informed the rest of the class the importance of putting our litter in the bin. Check out our pictures to see how much fun we got up to with Toffee bear!

We all know how important mental health and wellbeing are, so a big thank you to the NEU Help a Child to Learn Foundation, and to Thompson and Morgan for their support. Their donations have enabled us to give a Wellbeing Bag, complete with a range of resources to support wellbeing, to all of our pupils.
There’s something for everyone inside. Welcome back!
We have seen lots of fabulous examples of Health, Wellbeing and Relationships work across school, from our pupils engaged in remote learning and those pupils in school.
Some pupils in KS1 have been practising mindfulness by joining in with online story yoga, and also learning about what makes them special. Others have been learning about money, and having an awareness of saving money for something they need or would like.
In KS2, some classes have been thinking about what makes them happy, and their thoughts on this are all very unique. Researching issues facing cocoa farmers in Ghana and how organisations like Fairtrade are trying to improve working conditions and environment, has produced some interesting debate from some classes. Other pupils have created very informative posters based upon their awareness of basic first aid to do with nose bleeds.
Our Year 6 pupils have been looking at careers and potential jobs for the future, discussing things that might lead them to choose a certain job or career.
Some of our KS1 pupils have been preparing the allotment for Spring, by tidying up, and planting bulbs. They’ll be checking on their progress as they grow.
Some of our Year 1 pupils were having fun in the allotment yesterday. They enjoyed using the gardening tools to tidy the raised beds. Next week they should be ready to plant some bulbs for the Spring.
The rain has been good for the plants, trees and animals in the allotment.
We harvested our first crop of spring green cabbages and lettuces and had a taste of the lettuce – some of our staff had it with their lunch. Back in class, we prepared the cabbage and mixed it with other vegetables to make soup. Yum!
It’s a great feeling knowing that we helped to grow our own food.
