This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.


Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
BLOGGING'S GREAT FUN
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

BBC - Children in Need.

A bucket full of coppers.

We've raised £75 in 'fines' for not wearing school uniform (i.e. donations!) and haven't even begun to count the number of ex-policemen in the bucket.
After finally counting all those copper coins we have raised £156.96 - well done!!!!

Creating a line of copper coins across the playground. It looks as he we'll in all the way round. Dunno who's going to count them...or pick them up!
I never imagined that we'd have enough coins to go all across the playground but we ended up having enough to cover all the lines on the netball court. We shall count it today and find out how much we've raised.
