We’re being supported by Ground Control to invite nature into the school grounds. This is all part of our effort to ensure children learn about biodiversity and sustainability.
You may remember that last year all of our children took part in The Big Dig. This has kick-started a year round approach to learning which has included a collaboration with the Bumblebee Trust, participation in Climate Week, undertaking RSPB's birdwatch, and our participation in 30 Days Wild (see article in this newsletter).
The story of our recent collaboration with Ground Control and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust is told in this video.

Through our partnership with Ground Control and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, we managed to secure a small number of tickets to the Chelsea Flower Show. On Monday, four very lucky students were accompanied by Mr English and Mrs Jenkins to attend the show. Monday was press day for the show and the show was not open to the general public. There were plenty of famous celebrities in attendance!
The four children were selected from those children in Years 4 and 5 who entered a competition to demonstrate how they were helping our local biodiversity to thrive.
We want to thank everyone who entered the competition - the standard of entries showed the commitment of children and families to protect wildlife and the planet.
Have a look through the photos and see if you can spot the celebrities (including a royal princess).
We celebrated the Coronation of King Charles III with a special day in school. Some of us dressed as kings and queens, and some of us dressed in red, white and blue. There were a range of coronation themed activities and we all learned a little more about the role of the monarch, the traditions of the coronation service, and much more.
We learned a song especially written for the coronation, 'Our King' 👑
