PAC have been creating a minibeast hotel outside the classroom. They have used lots of natural materials to fill it like fir cones, sticks, moss and stones. Hopefully many bugs will come and visit it!
Today PSC went down into the woods to explore the natural world around them. They enjoyed using their spades to dig, placed suncatchers into the trees and planted windmills into the soil. The children enjoyed searching underneath tree stumps for insects and using sticks and twigs to make dens and camp fires. This developed upon their science and understanding the world around us.
This week PMD have been learning about firefighters. Today, we had our own firefighters in class who were extra brave and helped to put out the fire
Reminder: Tuck shop will be open on Monday.
A sneak peak of some of the amazing garden products we will be selling at the coffee morning on the 27th May. All products have been designed and made by our Key stage 4 Enterprise Team. We are looking forward to seeing lots of parents and all proceeds will go towards the memorial garden.

Hello everyone, this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 runs between 9th – 15th May and this year’s theme is loneliness.

Loneliness is affecting more and more of us in the UK and has had a huge impact on our physical and mental health during the pandemic. Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental to protecting our mental health and we need to find better ways of tackling the epidemic of loneliness. We can all play a part in this.

To help raise awareness of the impact of our wellbeing and practical steps we can take to address it, please click on the link or for further information go to our school Website under Wellbeing.

Mr Elliott
Mental Health & Wellbeing and Behaviour Mentor
A date for your diary-
On Friday 27th May we will be holding a summer coffee morning for our parents. You will be able to come and purchase a drink and cake which you can enjoy with your child.

A polite reminder that school will be closing tomorrow promptly at 12:30. For those parents picking pupils up can you please ensure you arrive on time. Thank you for your understanding.

URGENT APPEAL!

Unfortunately even after confirming and paying for our booking, we have been let down by the coach company for our Key Stage 3 trip to the seaside next week. We have exhausted every alternative option and are desperate not to let our pupils down. We are asking if anyone has any links to coach or minibus companies who might be able to help us out in any way. If you are able to support us, can you please contact the school office.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give us!!
