Animal Care

On Tuesday 6th November, we were visited by Michael and his dog buddy from Animal Care. Michael and Buddy taught us all about the 5 welfare needs of all animals, and showed us the fantastic work that Animal Care do.

 

We learnt so much, and really enjoyed meeting Michael and Buddy. We would like to make a donation to Animal Care so if you would like to send in a cash donation, or a gift for one of the animals for Christmas (toys, treats, collar etc) , please see Mrs Whitaker.

Judges Lodgings

We visited the judges lodgings to find out about toys in the past. We played lots of fun games with Mr Higginbottom, the house master, and looked at the toys in the Museum of Childhood.

 

 

Then we put on white gloves and looked at some very old toys. We tried to find clues as to when they were made. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed dressing up in our Victorian clothes.

A very special visitor

Yesterday we had a visit from Pudsey Bear! He cam into school and met all of the teachers and children. We told him all about the fundraising we will be doing for Children in Need next Friday and he was very pleased.

 

Don’t forget to come to school in your pyjamas and style that crazy hair for Children in Need next Friday 16th November in return for a donation for CIN. We will have a limited number of Pudsey wristbands for sale which are £1 each.

Edina Trust Bulb Planting

On the 18th October the Owls Class planted daffodil and crocus bulbs, including the mystery bulbs in plant pots and positioned them carefully in the school garden. They then planted some more daffodil bulbs in the school grounds. Our ‘Ground Force’ team has been established, and are looking forward to monitoring the progress of the bulbs to compare the flowering dates with previous years.

Great fun was had by all as the photographs show.
