Anya's Progress with Sending Rainbows to Care Homes

Anya has been writing to the elderly in care homes around the country.  She has now sent packs of rainbows she’s drawn or painted to 50 care homes all around the UK - well over 200 rainbows in total.  She’s been especially excited to have received some replies (and even a gift from one of them!).

Here’s a photo of Anya with her replies including some photos of ladies she's now calling her ‘new grandmas’. Well done Anya, you should be so proud of yourself, for helping to brighten the lives of so many people confined to their care homes during lock down.

Annabel receives a Blue Peter Badge

Last week Annabel received some brilliant post – her first Blue Peter Badge arrived.  She created a new concept, a Cushion Diary.  This was made for the Blue Peter dog Henry.   Henry was new to the show in the Summer and Annabel thought it would be great for him to have a diary to document his adventures in his new life as a Blue Peter dog.  She also thought that dogs like to sleep a lot, so her idea was to package the diary as a cushion, so that Henry could have a snooze whenever writing his diary became too much.

Home Schooling Reception Style!

Reception have been very busy over the last week thinking about jungle animals, learning how to use technology safely and respectfully, making magic wands and even learning to tell the time! The girls have coped brilliantly with all of the home-schooling tasks they have been set and we are all so proud of them (and their parents!).

Wild Things Eco Festival

The 'Wild Things' eco-festival has been a roaring success this week, and we have been delighted by all the work and photos you have sent in. The festival centred around biodiversity, and children were invited to explore three main themes: Gardens and bees, Hedgehogs, and Rainforests. They even received a virtual talk from a bee expert! Children across all year groups learned the importance of celebrating and caring for our planet's biodiversity, and took wonderful, practical steps to do this. Well done to everybody who took part.

Butterfly Growing

This Year 1 pupil has been raising her own butterflies! Starting with wiggly caterpillars, she watched them create chrysalises, then transform into beautiful butterflies! What a great idea for lockdown.

Spring Flowers Competition

Wow! Miss Jackson has been truly amazed by the quality of work that has been sent in for the spring flowers creative competition. It has been lovely to see everyone being so inspired by David Hockney’s work. It has been hard to choose winners as they have all been of such a high standard.  The winners are:

Pre-prep - Ophelia (Y1) 
Seniors - Matilda (Y4) and Ione (Y5)


Well done children and thank you so much for taking part!
