Alban Day

The school hall was awash with blue and yellow during our weekly ‘Proud Assembly’ today. The children were asked to wear blue and yellow and bring a £1.00 donation to support the education centre at the museum. We are looking forward to using the museum when it opens and learning more about the city we live in. The event corresponded with ‘Alban Day’ and Miss Poole talked about this in assembly. There is an Alban Pilgrimage in town on Saturday which starts at 11.00am which is part of the Alban...

Parent Governor Election

This morning voting closed for the Parent Governor Election. School Councillors from Year 1 and 2 helped Mrs Rimmer open all the envelopes. Ms Pearlman and Mrs Carr our Chair and Deputy Chair of Governors were in attendance and sorted the ballot papers ready to count. Mrs Rimmer talked to the children about how to effectively count the ballot papers and it was decided a good idea was to group them into piles of 10. The vote was close and our successful candidate won by 2 votes. The children talked about why it was important to double check the counting to make sure the person with the most votes was elected. The children are familiar with the process of electing School Council members and understood that parents were voting for the person they wanted to help Mrs Rimmer and the rest of the Governors lead our school. Congratulations to Sarah Pike our new Parent Governor! Thank you to School Council for helping with the big count.      Opening the envelopes being very careful not to put any ballot papers in the rubbish bin. Counting the ballot papers into piles of...

So long, farewell to the Bernards Heath chicks!

On Friday we said goodbye to the Bernards Heath chicks. We felt a bit sad because we have all enjoyed watching them hatch and grow. The short process has taught us lots and Year 1 have become chick experts. Their instructions for how to care for the chicks were of excellent quality because they used their first hand knowledge and experience of what the chicks really needed. Friday afternoon was spent making a run for the chicks who had really outgrown their brooding box. It was great to see how much their wings had grown and how big and strong their legs had become. Cheep, the appropriately named first hatched, led the way as the chicks stretched their legs in a run created with big bricks by Churchill Class. We wish the chicks every happiness in their new home and look forward to hearing about how they are getting on!...

It may be pouring with rain outside but spring has sprung in Churchill Class!

The chicks had a lovely sleepover at Miss Passey’s house at the weekend and have come back to school bigger and fluffier than they were when they left on Friday. They have moved from the incubator to the brooding box and have been keeping warm under their special light. The chicks have had lots of visitors and have enjoyed the warmth of snuggling up in small and careful hands. The children have shown us how safe they can be and have been thinking about what the chicks might need next… perhaps somewhere to get some...
