Grand Opening of Wildlife Garden

The opening of our Wildlife Garden will take place on Friday 3rd October. All parents and carers are cordially invited to come along and witness representatives from each class cutting a ceremonial ribbon. Pupils can take part in a Garden Hat Competition and we will also be a venue for The Big Draw event where we aim to cover the playground in chalk nature drawings.

Fingers crossed for good weather!

Finally…….It’s a boy!!!!

Huge congratulations to Mrs Currie who gave birth to Joshua Issac at 9.12pm on Friday night

Joshua weighed in 10lb 4oz.  Both mum and baby are well and Connor and Caleb are delighted with their baby brother.  Lots of love from all the staff, children, parents and friends at ELPS.

Willow Den

dscf4111.JPGThe Nursery children were very lucky to go out to watch the planting of the exciting new willow den in the playground. They were amazed to find out that the willow didn’t have any roots! We learned that the willow just starts to grow when it is planted into the soil. Helen told us that the very tall willow you can see, took two years to grow. 

Go Green for Schools

Asda and schools are trying to reduce the number of new carrier bags being used in supermarkets. We would like you to get involved. When you are shopping in Asda, you will be given a Go Green voucher every time you reuse your old bags or buy a Bag for Life. Please send these vouchers to school and we can exchange them for resources to help develop greener thinking.
