Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

We are over the moon to announce that we raised a phenomenal £400 at our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon.  A totally amazing total for our community.  Parents, family and friends then had the opportunity to see around the classrooms and look at our work from this term’s ‘Healthy Me’ context. Thank you all for supporting this event.

RSPB Visitor

Beautiful afternoon for a ‘Bioblitz’ of our immediate environment. Bursting with life! Minibeasts, birds, plants and trees. Engaging and informative, working in groups to encourage team work and cooperation. Thanks to the RSPB.

SSPCA Visit

Jackie from the SSPCA visited us as part of our ‘Living Things’ context. We all heard about the important work the SSPCA do in our community, P1-3 heard the story of how Polly the pigeon and was rescued and P4-7 played snakes and ladders while answering questions testing their knowledge of animals. Jackie was delighted to take away the bedding and towels donated by families and staff. The donations will be used in the animal centre. A very worthwhile, informative visit helping towards us being responsible citizens and effective contributors
