On Tuesday all the children had the opportunity to help plant a tree in the school grounds. The school had won the trees in a competition and the PTA very kindly funded Sheffield Wildlife to come into school to help plant them with us.
In the pictures you can see the children planting oak, cherry, rowan (mountain ash) and birch trees.
Thank you very much to the PTA. The children really enjoyed this opportunity and learnt how to plant a tree and give it the correct conditions to enable it to grow and flourish in the future.
The ‘All About Me’ books have been a great success. The children have enjoyed sharing their books with one another and it has been fascinating to find out more about each child and their special interests and hobbies out of school.
The children (and parents) have worked hard to make the books really special and they are very proud of all their efforts….. as you can see from the photos.
The children enjoyed learning about some of the basic techniques of Judo with Gareth on Friday 7th April.
All the children joined in enthusiastically listening and watching Gareth carefully.
It was great fun to try out the moves and the signals ‘go’ and ‘stop’. The pictures show the class in the sports hall practising the new skills and games that Gareth introduced to them.
To raise money for the Good Shepherd Fund on Wednesday the children can come to school in their own spring themed coloured clothes (ie..green, yellow, pink, orange etc). In exchange for the children wearing their own clothes they can pay £1. We will be doing lots of Easter and Spring themed activities this week.
The ‘All About Me’ books the children have been working on at home are fantastic. It is so lovely to find out about what the children enjoy doing and are interested in school outside school.
The children are enjoying sharing their books with the whole class and with their friends. We even had a ‘All About Me’ shop set up on Friday afternoon, it closed when the PA’s went for lunch and coffee break but it was visited by lots of children.
You can see how proud the children are of their books from the photos. Please keep bringing them in and adding to them each week.
