It was great to be back in the forest this week with our new forest club members. The bluebells looked beautiful and the children were very excited when they found a fox hole.

It’s that time of year again when young people get involved in the fabulous Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and this morning I enjoyed a 6 mile walk with my group for this year. Always good to practise my map reading skills and avoid any long detours.
May is my favourite month, not only because my birthday falls in this spring month, but because gardens look beautiful, trees are full of blossom, there are lots of fantastic events to go to and everyone is able to make the most of the great outdoors.

Just a quick reminder that next Friday 25th April is Environmental Day at school. Our theme this year is recycled sculpture and the children will be creating sculptures to brighten our school grounds.
Keep an eye out for teacher’s tweets asking for recycled materials we can use on the day such as tin cans, plastic bottles, plastic lids and old cutlery.
We had a fantastic morning at our Medieval Banquet and Tournament. The children looked amazing in their costumes and enjoyed sharing food, dancing and ‘fighting’ with their own swords and shields we made in topic lessons.
Thank you to all the parents for providing the costumes and to Mr Billing for making our mini movie.
