Visit from Quarriers

Jennifer from Quarriers came to visit us this week and to tell us all about what they do.  We gave her the £47 we raised from our Spy Party and she told us that it would go towards helping people with disabilities such as epilepsy and to help families and young adults.  We told her that we had researched lots of different local charities, made presentations on them and then voted on which one we would fund raise for.

We wrote evaluations about our Caring Kids topic and had lots of ideas about what we had done well and what we might do better next time.

Our brand new school

After our fifteen month decant, today was the first day back into our new refurbished school.  Everyone was amazed at the changes and gave them a big thumbs up.
Here you can see our teaching wall in the background and all our new furniture.  Everyone is wearing soft shoes so that we can keep the new carpets clean.

Here we are walking round to the back of the school where we will line up first thing in the morning and after breaks.
You can just see the new part of the infant block on the left hand side.  We aren't allowed on the grass yet as it is a bit muddy!
Here we are in our new cloakroom.  We can put our outdoor boots and shoes under the bench below the pegs.  Behind the cloakroom outside the classroom, there is a breakout space for painting and other activities.
Everyone is looking around at our new class as they come in the door for the first time!
You can see the big number 8 etched on the glass for our room number.  The glass looks out on to the breakout space and the cloakrooms.
We had our first assembly in the newly refurbished hall.  It has a lovely stage and two whiteboards, one of which rolls down from the ceiling on the stage!
