Easter garden

The African Garden has been decorated for Easter by Mrs. Murphy and the children. It’s looking beautiful thanks to home learning – the children are so engaged and enthusiastic. Thank you for your support. We can all be very proud of the way our children think of others, especially during Lent. Pupils Mathilda and Paolo raised £30 and £20 respectively this week with cake sales for Mary’s Meals - a fantastic achievement!

Caring for our Oceans

These are some poster designs that Year 2 children designed about caring for the oceans, following the class work we have been doing about the storm whale story. The children have learnt about how important it is to care for ocean life, in particular by reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the sea.

Other Eco News

Year 2 have been making bird feeders using cheerios this week which they are hanging from the trees. We now have some bird identification sheets along the fence next to Nursery so that children can have a go at naming birds that they see in the school environment.
