A full playground makeover!
Floodlights for the car park area to help at Afterowls pickup time!
We are so grateful for your ongoing support.
These are just a few of the recent initiatives the Friends have been able to roll out to improve the school grounds and provide new experiences for the children.
The new gates have really smartened up the School entrance as well as providing added security to the site.
Our Pegasus class have been getting their hands dirty, playing with the fabulous new mud kitchens.
Brightening up the path from the gates to the classroom, we think you'll agree our new fencing is rather smart! And quite fun!
ANNUAL PANTO TRIP
A highlight of the winter term, our whole school pantomime visit to an Oxfordshire show is always memorable.
Fresh paintwork with various games added to our Upper's playground.
Computing skills are vital, not only for school life but also for children's future careers.
From drama to singing, show and tell to talent shows, our fabulous stage encourages confidence.
The children's obstacle course, composed of different pieces of apparatus is laid out to form a series of fun-filled physical challenges.
RAISED VEGETABLE BEDS
The two XXL raised beds by the main playground are now being enjoyed by the whole school as they take turns to tend to the School's Vegetable patch.
New ergonomically designed chairs promoting good posture and exceptional comfort for every classroom.
This school term the focus for our fundraising efforts is to provide the children with a 'playground to plate' garden kitchen program, designed to deliver food education around growing and cooking to develop the right skills and knowledge to keep themselves healthy.
We want to encourage the Children to engage in planting and tending to 'school grown' fruits and vegetables which will eventually make it onto their school lunch plates!
Our target of £3,000 will enable the installation of a school greenhouse with the tools and materials needed for the children to get their hands dirty (quite literally!) and start to benefit from the experience of food growing.
The Food Growing in Schools report highlights compelling evidence that proves food growing in schools helps to support our children through;
• Encouraging and facilitating learning – particularly in science
• Building skills, including life, enterprise and employment related skills
• Improving awareness and understanding of the natural environment
• Promoting health and well being in relation to diet and nutrition
• Supporting school improvement and development
• Strengthening communities and interaction.
