Eco-Gardening Club with Mrs Painter-Chapman: Wednesday, 3.40pm – 4.40pm

Our Eco-Gardening club has developed a beautiful and bountiful garden!

So far we have produced good crops of organic potatoes, peas, broad beans and strawberries.

This year our young, intrepid gardeners have fought off uncooperative weather, pheasants and more than a few of the plump snails and slugs who lurk furtively awaiting juicy morsels.

It was so exciting to watch the apple trees the pupils planted last year grow and produce their first crop.

We are now in the process of building a rockery and have a wildflower patch to encourage the bees and wildlife, plus a bug-house which we made which we wish the snails and slugs would live in!!

We call ourselves the Eco Warriors!

World Cinema Club with Miss Lunn: Wednesday, 3.40pm – 4.40pm

In World Cinema Club children have the opportunity to explore stories, tales and legends from around the globe, from Russian folk tales to Chinese History, German fairy tales to Native American legends. This gives pupils and teachers the chance to explore cultures through the medium of film.
Every week the children sample some of the focus country’s cuisine too.
With weekly screenings, world cinema club inspires, excites and opens up new avenues for learning through the pupils own imaginations.
