Update - 17/6/14 Sarah Wesley has been busy in our wildlife area with her team of volunteers. Sarah Tranter, Laren Heap and Emma Asher all helped Sarah with the pond area this time around and they have done an amazing job. They got loads done and found frogs in the larger pond (see photo above)! The pond has been cleared and is useable again. Claire Corbett and her mother also brought lots of plants which have been planted around the wildlife area. A big thank you to all of you! Sarah's dad has also made a bird feeder which he is kindly driving down to us on Friday and we can't wait to introduce it to the birds!
A big thank you to Sarah Wesley, Emma Asher, Sarah Tranter, Kathy and Ollie Horne and Mick Dunne for working in our Wildlife Garden. Thank you to Mick who donated bags of gravel for the paths in the butterfly area and to Kathy who donated black plastic which is being used as ground cover to kill off the stinging nettles. Donations have also been received from Notcutts Garden Centre (seeds) and Longacres Nursery (seeding compost, plant food and seeds).
You are welcome to come and have a look at progress - just walk down the side of Year 2 at Tall Trees Campus and the Wildlife Garden is on the left next to Hawthorn Class. If you are able to donate time, plants, cuttings or anything else please contact Sarah Wesley (Willow Class) or Catherine Lynch (Beech Class).
The cheerleading club have been working hard to create an energetic and impressive performance piece. The club performed this fantastic routine in assembly on 27th March 2014.
As part of the Key Stage 1 Spring Watch topic the children in Year 1 and 2 worked with parents and staff to tidy up and plant in the sensory garden. They also made grass heads using grass seeds and closely observed daffodils and drew them. Year 2 also planted sunflower seeds and year 1 brought their vegetable bed back to life. The children loved working outside with their parents and we had perfect weather. The children are working hard to keep all the beds watered and are really excited to see what appears as the sensory garden comes alive.
