Forest School classroom
We all enjoyed our forest school classroom this year. Pupils have taken part in a wide range of activities including Carols round the Campfire at Christmas with our friends and families.
Mr Pritchard has been working hard with some volunteers to clear and set up a Forest School classroom for our pupils. We were very fortunate to have staff from Amey spend one of their community days helping clear the undergrowth. On the first day of half term, some of our families volunteered to help finish getting the area ready. After all the hard work, we roasted marshmallows and toasted crumpets on the fire.
Third Eco Schools Green flag for Longney!
The Eco team have been working very hard over the last three years towards being awarded our third Green Flag Award. On the last day of the Spring term, an assessor form Eco Schools spent the morning in school talking to the team, listening to their presentation in assembly and having a tour of the school. She was very impressed with all the work they have done
In Friday's Collective Worship, Eco Club reminded us how we can help look after hedgehogs in their natural habitat. Everyone wore their own clothes and donated £1.00 and we had a cake sale too. The money collected has been donated to the local Hedgehog Hospital.
Eco club have been very busy building 'Eco Big Boxtrolls' for a competition being run by 'the'Keep Britain Tidy' campaign. Each Boxtroll has a character a job to do such as keeping an eye on how much energy we are using in school. Good luck everyone!
Christmas Fayre December 2015
Thank you to everyone who came and supported the Christmas Fayre and helped raise money for our link school in Makifu, Tanzania. We sponsor a child so he can attend secondary school. Well done Eco Club and After School club for your stalls, all of our classes for making such lovely Christmas gifts and supplying chocolate for the tombola, stall holders and everyone who came along.
Eco Club planted and grew wheat this summer. Then they spent a busy morning baking enough rolls to feed all our Comenius visitors and our families at the Barn Dance!
