South East in Bloom Environmental Challenge Winners

This year we entered the RHS South East in Blooms Schools Environmental Challenge Award. We completed a portfolio covering 11 criteria all concerned with our schools wildlife habitats that we have created, how we encourage wildlife to our school and how we educate our pupils about the natural world, as well as teaching them about global environmental issues. We were thrilled to hear this week that we were awarded ‘overall winner’ out of all the schools in the South East. We will receive a certificate and a £60 voucher for seeds/ plants for our kitchen garden area.

Author Visit – SF Said

We were extremely excited and privileged to welcome SF Said (author of Varjak Paw and Phoenix) to our school. SF was brilliant in explaining the writing process and how important it is to draft. He showed drafts of his work from the first version to the seventh version and we discussed the power in changes he had made. It was a fantastic experience and we are very lucky as a school to have such a talented author giving us tips!

EYFS Recycling project

After collecting plastic bottle tops for their recycling project EYFS have made a fantastic Sea life mural to support their ‘Saving the Planet’ topic.  The mural depicts the Sea life that are under threat and need protecting.

The children worked hard to sort hundreds of bottle tops into coloured piles and then into sizes and finally different tones before setting to work with Miss Tustin and her mum, who supported the children in designing and creating the mural.
