Sensory Garden

We are delighted to say that the Sensory Garden is open! Children have been starting to go into it during breaktimes, and there is a lot of interest in all the plants and various items dotted around. The garden is not finished; there are trees to be planted soon and plenty of other colourful objects will be added but it has been nice to open it up to the children. Thank you to everyone who has contributed plants, compost and other items to make the garden so appealing. Any plants or interesting objects gratefully received!

KS2 production – The Mystery of Magpie Manor

All the children in KS2 gave two wonderful performances of The Mystery of Magpie Manor this week. The singing was lively and engaging and the acting by both B6 and E6 was superb. The high quality of the per-formances was the result of hard work on behalf of the all children and of course the staff who worked with them. Special thanks must go to Mrs English, Mrs Hatcliffe and Mrs Hawley for the props and scenery; Miss Burkett and Miss Evans for directing the Y6 acting; and Mrs Cardy for the overall musical direction. A fantastic performance to end the year!

Red Nose Day

Thank you to everyone who helped support Comic Relief last Friday. The school was awash with red!
The School Council gave an assembly to the shcoool to explain the important work that Comic Relief do to help children less lucky than ourselves. Thank you and well done – we raised an amazing £345.97.

World Book Day

School Grounds Update: Eco Team Tree Planting

On Wednesday, members of the Eco Team enjoyed a drizzly time out in the playground with Mrs Taylor planting twenty-six trees. They did a great job digging up some very squelchy soil and were careful with the tiny saplings as they went into the ground. Well done and thank you to the Eco Team and to Mr Crane who kindly gave up his time to help us.
