Anker Wood

Reception had a wonderful trip to Anker Wood on Monday and impressed the rangers with their knowledge about animals, before getting lost in the mazes!

”I loved holding the girl chickens, and listening to the the pigs snort. The male chickens were really noisy and made a great sound, and the goats were cool!”

Recycling

Battery Recycling

Well done to all our children for collecting all the old batteries from around their homes.  Together we collected over 2000 batteries! Thanks to this amazing effort, we have prevented these from ending up in landfill and harming our environment, and all will be turned into new batteries!

The Green Team members carefully counted and sorted all the batteries, ready for recycling.

We will continue to collect batteries to do our bit for the environment. The recycling point is in the front entrance.

Meet The Guinea Pigs

The guinea pigs have caused much excitement this week, and the children have loved having them in school and in their classrooms. The School Council collected possible names from each class and shortlisted the choice, before allowing our Reception Children to have the final say.

Meet Carrot and Spud!

Some of the children have already enjoyed stroking the the guinepigs and some have even enjoyed reading stories to them. Spud really enjoying hearing the tale of Goldilocks and The Three Bears, whilst Carrot nibbled on some hay!

A big thank you to the Friends of Cannon Park who enabled us to purchase everything needed to help us care for our school pets!
