Our School Council… on food.

Our School Council meetings take place every month so that I can share my thoughts and make some decisions alongside representatives from every class.  They, in turn, read minutes back to the rest of their class and discuss the items we spoke about. For a while now, some of the year 6 children have made comments about portion sizes being [...]

Willow structures…

I wonder what the children will think of the willow structures that started to get woven together yesterday, up in the Forest Village? Thanks to Holly, Ted, Mandy, Mark and Pete for spending time in the cold, up behind Stepping Stones. The whole place is coming along beautifully! :-)

Our Christingle Service…

Just a lovely evening's service. The Christingle - reminding us all about the wonderful world God made and having a candle to represent Jesus, the Light of the world. Thanks for coming and being safe with the candles! #WeAreCommunity

We lost the debate (but that’s a good thing!)

Following on from our previous post, the debate went really badly and we lost... but then we were arguing in the position of a Packaging Manager and actually, didn't believe in what we had to put forward! Backtrack... Our Eco Council went to the Met Office building today to take part in the first ever SAS Plastic Free Conference. SAS' [...]

Eco Council; debating and wishing we lose!

Our Eco Council has been invited by Surfers Against Sewage to take part in a debate on Tuesday, one that's going to be extremely challenging... we're playing the part of a Packaging Manufacture and we're supporting the motion that the plastic free programme should be put on pause for another 20 years! This caused some confusion in our brief discussion [...]

Single-Use Prayers? Never!

That tough question about whether to laminate!? Written by children this week, these prayers will be displayed on the Crib, on the Green, on Sunday. They're going to need to be weather proof so the community can come and read them and pray about their what they say. Do come along as it's always a lovely community service... and our [...]

Class 2 science…

A quick thought to senses, during the Autumn, and the things that you can; Taste, Smell, See, Hear, and Feel ...at this time of the year. No, not hot sun on your backs or the smell of BBQs, but blowing wind, crunchy leaves and warm hot chocolate! And then also to food chains. What does, 'being at the top' mean? [...]

Eco Council / Cimate Council minutes…

Our school's Eco Council has been a subsection of our School Council for years now.  We've made important decisions about many things in the past and we've been hugely successful recently in becoming the first school awarded as a Plastic-Free School by the SAS.   With our work in this area expanding, we split the groups up last year and [...]

A blog written by George, the shrimp…

Hi, I'm George and I'm a shrimp. I had a brilliant time today apart from a short amount of time in a blue bucket. As from yesterday, I always thought plastic was in the sea and always had been, but I learnt something amazing today after wearing a VR Headset.  (Don't ask how the headset was made or who made [...]

Home grown tomatoes…!

We have our own cherry tomatoes going on the salad trolley today. Picked by Rebecca :-)
