Garden and Grounds Day

Many, many thanks to all the mums and family members who came in to help nursery, P1-3 and P4-7. We swept up leaves, shovelled away dirt, planted flowers, weeded and pruned. A special thank you to the team who took on the unenviable task of re-siting and refilling the compost bins. The worms love the bins’ new homes, though the children think they’re a bit pongy at the moment – we still need bags of grass cuttings if anyone if planning to mow their lawn which will help ‘damp down’ the smell. We are very grateful to Anne Robinson, Tesco’s horticulturalist, for spending the whole day with us, and to Tescos for their kind donation of shrubs and bedding plants. Thanks also to Sam Ranscombe (countryside ranger) and Stuart MacPherson (biodiversity officer) for their advice and practical help. Hopefully everyone who lent us gasrdening tools has got them all back.

We have lots of plans for planting the areas which have been cleared to ensure we have colour all year round.

Well done to the members of Pupil Parliament (Outdoor Opportunities Group) for all your suggestions – we hope you’re pleased with the result!

We were rather too busy to take a lot of photos, but here are a few to give you a flavour of the day.

Eco Team

Published by under Eco Schools

During our Garden and Grounds day, our new Eco team got together and worked with Holly’s mum who is running the Eco Team this year. The group includes children from across the school, from nursery to Primary 7. Children in P1-3 who wanted to be part of the team had to apply for the post and then be interviewed. They will be working hard as we begin the journey towards earning our next green flag.

Appeal for help on Thursday 7th

Published by under Notices

Thank you so much to all the parents and grandparents who have offered to help with our Garden and Grounds day tomorrow. We now have lots of people to help with the nursery and quite a good number to help with P1-3.

We are would really appreciate if any parents were free to help P4-7 between 11.00 and 12.30. P4-7 have some heavier task to perform which will require careful supervision.

Has anyone got some small shovels or a spade we could borrow?

Thanks!

Grass cuttings: can you help?

Published by under Notices

On Thursday, as part of our Grounds Improvement Day, we will be mixing some ingredients to make some good compost. We already have most of what we need, but really need some grass clippings to get the mixture going. Are you about to mow the lawn? Some bags of grass cuttings would be much appreciated! :)

If any parents are free on Thursday, we still need helpers!

The nursery will be in the garden 9.00 – 10.00.

P4-7 at 11.00 – 12.30

P1-3 at 1.15 – 2.15

Transition from Nursery to Primary One

Published by under School news

This morning our transition events began with a visit to the primary one class from our friends in our school nursery and from a new friend who we loved meeting.  The children played together, chatted about some of the things that they like to do and started to learn each other’s names.  There was a lovely atmosphere in class with the primary 1’s taking on a caring role as they remembered their own feelings during this transition time last year.  It made me wonder how a year has passed already as it seems like yesterday that I was welcoming our current primary ones into class.

In the next 3 weeks we will be joined by other friends who will form our primary one class in August.
