Year 1 Bioblitz

On Tuesday 24th April, Year 1 were lucky enough to have the RSPB come and visit. They led a workshop called Bioblitz. This was a really exciting morning where we were able to go minibeast hunting, pond dipping and on a hunt for flowers and animal footprints around school. We found lots of minibeasts that we caught in our bug collectors and we even found a couple of newts in the pond!

Bling Your Bike at the end of the Big Pedal

Well done to everyone who took part in the BIG PEDAL over the last 10 days. It has been a great success. This week's class winners with the most cyclists and scooter riders is Chaffinch class. On the final day of the bog pedal the children were asked to 'Bling' their bikes and scooters. Thank you to everyone who took part. The Team Captains helped Mrs Turner choose the winners, as the standard of BLING was extremely high.
After much deliberation the winners were chosen as...
Alfie - Wrens
Lucy -  Peregrines
William - Chaffinch
Lewis - Goldfinch
Well done everyone!
