Courtyard Crops

Our potatoes have arrived. After the success of our previous tomato and strawberry crops, we are looking forward to planting these potatoes as soon as we are able to get our club up and running again. We are all hoping this will be after Easter...Hurrah! Our club is back up and running and our potatoes and herbs (rocket) have now been planted! The recent rain, although not welcome at play-times, is working wonders for our newly-planted crops that we hope will prove tasty when harvested...and our club is diligently tending to all this year's courtyard crops, plants and hanging baskets. The flowers add colour and cheer around school too.

Golden Time: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Year 5/6 had great fun using old books to create their own hedgehogs. Allana and Daisy (Year 6) led this activity after their classmates all used their pupil voice to choose how to spend their golden time. They all agreed that both girls were very patient and efficient teachers!

English Curriculum

Miss Haji's class began the new school year with hedgehog research pages and these are on display in school, some of which will provide tips for helping avoid the creeping extinction of this beautiful native creature. Children have also decided to write their English diary unit in role as hedgehogs and are very excited to use their pupil voice and share their creativity in this way. We hope our new array (group/family) of hedgehogs will join Rudolf, Wanda and Groot, Rosie and Jim and Prickles who we think have settled themselves comfortably into our nature area and surrounding gardens. This on-going project is one that the Year 5/6 gardening club are especially proud of and it is an added bonus that our participation also provides other curriculum learning opportunities and gives children the chance to use their pupil voice and choice when writing.
