Year 1 Potato Competition
Today saw the results of a 5 month competition between the two year 1 classes (owls and unicorns). The competition, which class could grow the most potatoes.
Back in February the Unicorns and Owls both planted a bag of 'Rocket' and 'Jester' potatoes with Mr Brooker. For 5 months the classes watered and cared for their crop and today was the big reveal.
Mr Barnett weighed each set of Potatoes and the results were fantastic.
Amazingly both classes had grown 740 grams of Jester potatoes. Well done to both classes, but that made the competition even fiercer for the Rocket category.
The Unicorns weighed 820 grams and the Owls weighed in at 825 grams. Wow, such close results!
Both classes gave each other a round of applause and it was clear from the excitement from the afternoon that everyone was a winner.
On Friday the 27th of May we held a Royal Celebration party in the school playground to celebrate the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle.
Attendance was fantastic and we would like to thank everyone who was able to make it. We would also like to extend a very special thank you to the parents who helped before and after the event, we would not of been able to host such a successful event without your help!
If you would like to be involved in any future events there are still plenty of spaces left with the homeschool partnership, please email in to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Parent Liaison Mrs Karen Groves for more information.
A photo booth was set up at the event to capture all of the fantastic outfits we saw, we hope you enjoy the photos!
Over the summer we had some new pre-historic visitors to the school!
They have been a great hit with the children and have even made it into the local news papers. Take a look at the link below:
