On October 7th 2016 we had our annual Green Day. Reception class enjoyed a day packed with activities. We learnt about road safety with Lollypop Linda & Julie. We did some outside learning with Mrs Jordan making art pictures using leaves. We did food tasting with Lynda from ASDA, learnt about safety of dogs with Mrs Crouch and planted potatoes in our outside planters.
On Friday we had our annual Green Day with lots of visitors in school and also a number of classes learning out of school. Year 5 and 6 went up to Rivington Barn and had a very interesting morning learning about the different species of plants, trees and fungi that grow in our local area. Year 4 went off to Raikes Lane Recycling plant to learn about what happens to our rubbish after it is collected. Year 3 had activities on site including litter picking and a visit from the footballers to teach them about exercise and a healthy diet. The footballers also visited Year 2 who had an action packed day! They also had a food tasting session, planted bulbs in tubs to make our school look nice in Spring and learned how to recycle their waste with a special visitor.
Our infants went outside to see Lollypop Linda and learn how to cross the road safely as well as fruit tasting, den building and toasting marshmallows! We hope they left enough room for the lovely Green Dinner that was served over lunchtime.
The day ended with an assembly by Year 6 where they invited a representative from each class to come to the front and tell us about their exciting Green Day. The assembly ended with Year 6 treating us all to a rap about recycling.
A huge THANK YOU to Mrs Davies, our Deputy Head who puts an enormous amount of time and effort into ensuring that the activities are interesting and enjoyable for all classes and that the day runs smoothly and also to our parent/grandparent volunteers who smiled their way through a soggy day to help with the activities.
