The children bring in lots from home to recycle and help save our environment. Some of the things brought from home include plastic bags, paper, greetings cards, batteries, mobile phones, bottle tops etc…
The school is also careful with its water consumption. We use water butts to water our school allotment and grounds.
Just before half term the children in year one have been looking at different artists work in their art lessons. To supplement this they were lucky enough to have an artist come in and talk to them. On this occasion he was a painter and also the father of a girl in year one.
The children asked him lots of questions about working as an artist. He also brought in some of his art work to demonstrate his skill and dedication to his craft.
The children raised lots of money for Children in Need . To raise the money the children where able to wear non uniform, superhero and Pudsey Bear clothes. They also baked and sold cakes, bought tombola prizes, had a name the bear competition and lots more.

Some of this money is also donated to our ‘Home Charity’, Help for Heroes . This helps wounded, injured or sick people in the armed services.

We were joined by three guests, including a local vicar, a local Councillor and a decorated war veteran. The children held an impeccable 2 minute silence and then we moved outside to both raise a specially made flag and also to view a poppy sculpture made by the children and inspired by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper .
