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!
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

More digging

(viewed 634 times)
The sand goes in this afternoon and the liner will, hopefully, go in tomorrow or Monday. Our local Dobbies garden centre is helping us to establish the pond. Their consultant came out to help design the area and to advise us on what to include to create an ecological heaven for wildlife.

Developing a school pond

(viewed 709 times)
We've been awarded a grant by the British Ecological Society. This is for the creation of a pond so that children can explore the balance of nature and the relationships in an ecosystem. The men from our Grounds service came today to dig the hole in a shaded area of our garden. One of these days i'll get chickens in the garden then we can add eggs to the list of food we produce.

Identifying properties of shapes

(viewed 694 times)
Our children in Reception have also been exploring shapes. Here are some work samples but they look far better in real life! The children have also made a powerpoint presentation of making biscuits but you won't be able to see this unless you come into school! Nothing like being told how good something is and then that you can't see it! Sorry.

We were invited to take part in a netball tournament in Stoke. Over the past few years we have had successful teams. We are prove to be the first school from our district to be invited to this tournament.
