This morning, we started to get excited as a school about the impending arrival of 200 saplings from the Woodland Trust, which are due to be delivered during November.
We listened to the story of the ‘Man who planted trees’ and talked about the importance of trees and how we, as individuals, can make a difference to the world.
During November, we will be creating our own school woodland area on a section of the school field and the children, with the help of adults from the community, will have the opportunity to plant trees which we hope will be around for generations to come.
We are also excited to be working towards the ‘Green Tree Schools Award’ this year and have our sights set firmly on achieving platinum status!
We have to apologise for a typing error on our newsletter. The phonics/writing evening is the 27th September not October, as stated in ‘Dates for your diary’.
We have started to send home phonics worksheets with your child. We would like to say a big thank you to all who have supported their child to complete them and return them to school. More information will be shared about these on our writing evening. Thank you.
Hope the week is going well. Just a quick reminder, after the break the Reception children will be left at the school gate to walk around by themselves. Reception staff will be on the playground and at the gate to make sure they are ok. We are looking forward to the start of the final term on Monday.
We have had a fabulous day at the Black Country Museum. The children were very well behaved and really enoyed the day. We played with toys and had to decide if they were old or new toys and also whether they would have belonged to a rich family or a poor one. We walked around the village and went on a barge, watched nails being made, visited a sweet shop, a hardware store and cake shop. We found out that you had to go to the toilet in a shed in the back garden! We also discovered why it was called the Black Country, sorry about the colour of our socks! Below are a few photographs of the day with some more in the photograph gallery. A big thank you to the parents that helped us today, without your help the children would not be able to experience these trips.
