First Incredible Edible Session14-03-2017 | 13:49:52 | No Comments

Hi everyone,

The Eco-Committee had their first Incredible Edible Session today, which is a new scheme being run by the council to help schools grow fruit and vegetables for their community.  We will be growing our vegetables from seed. 

Tracey from Wigan and Leigh Homes came in to work with us and kindly brought us compost and seeds along with all the equipment we needed.  Thank you Tracey.

As you can see from the photos below, we were very busy.   We had to sieve our compost first to get the lumps out, then put it into seeds trays with our seeds.  We planted cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, watercress, sprouts, broad beans, tomato, coriander, basil and parsley seeds along with  seed potatoes in a special potato growing bag. 

We will be nurturing our seeds to grow into plants over the next few weeks by giving them warm water and putting them in a sunny position, indoors.

We have a list of daily jobs to do in class to help us all be more eco-friendly and we will be doing a litter pick around school each week.

We are also starting our ‘Incredible Edible’ project this week, a council project which helps schools grow fruit and Veg for their communities- more info coming soon…

But first we have to vote which animal we would like to adopt.  Your school council members will be coming around to ask you to vote for your preferred animal soon. The choices are:

Be sure to get your vote in.  We will tell you the results as soon as they are in!

Royal Mail Design a Stamp Competition07-03-2017 | 10:24:29 | No Comments

Hi everyone,

Don’t forget to give your school council members any completed entry forms to the Royal Mail Design a Christmas Stamp Competition by next Monday 13th March as we need to send them to Royal Mail by Friday 17th March.

You will need to use lots of colour in your designs and not leave white around the edges.  Ideally there should be no words or writing within the design. Remember, winning entries will be used in miniature stamp size, so any words in the design will be difficult to read.  Also, don’t forget to check the rules and guidelines for the competition which were sent out with entry forms.  Any pupils entering the competition will be presented with a certificate for taking part.

If you need more entry forms or rules for entering you can ask your school council member.  Full details can be found on Competition Website
