Eco Project and Garden Area

Thursday, 2 July 2020

The children have had a great time and done an amazing job with the school eco project. They have designed PowerPoint presentations and posters to raise awareness; had badges made for the new Eco Leaders and for other children to buy; plated various vegetables and flowers and taken care of them, making a scarecrow to keep them safe; added bird and butterfly feeding areas and made a bug hotel. We are now waiting for a new summer house to be added in, so that we can observe the wildlife and continue to look after our school environment. Thank you to the Hateley Heath Project for the funds provided, to Mr Clews, Mr and Mrs Slade and to all of the staff and children who have contributed – it looks fantastic!

Class 6 have been enjoying the outdoors through their continuing eco-project in the garden area, as well as various PE based activities. The garden is looking beautiful. Our latest work has included building a bug hotel, planting fruit trees and more vegetables, and cleaning out all areas to make the place look as appealing as possible. Well done class 6, you have done an amazing job!

Also this week, it is both National School Sports Week and specifically, National Cricket Week. We have enjoyed a range of activities like personal best challenges and the main activity for the day ‘Strictly Come Catching!’ We are looking forward to more PE later in the week, including tri-golf. See if you can try some of these at home too.

Class 6’s Eco Project

Wednesday, 10 June 2020

Since returning to school, class 6 have been keen to help improve our school environment and help make us more eco-friendly. Having noticed such a difference in nature and wildlife during lock down, we are keen to recycle and look after the nature we have on our school site.

Today, we were joined by Mr Clews, who helped us get some of the school garden area looking good. We did plenty of weeding, planting, watering and hopefully we’ll see some vegetables starting to grow soon.

The children were all fantastic and very keen to do their bit. A huge thank you to Mr Clews too for giving up his time. The garden area is already looking much better, and we have plenty more planned before the summer holidays. Well done everyone!

Year 2 – Creative home learning

Tuesday, 9 June 2020

Well done to Year 2 who have been very creative in their home learning. Poppy has made animals and bugs from Play-Doh. This week the Year 2 topic is castles and Oliver has been very creative and made his own model of a castle. Look at this fantastic cardboard castle. Stunning – excellent work!

Purple Bubble were so impressed that they have taken inspiration from his design and created their own castles. Look out for their models – more photographs coming soon.
