Thank you all for donating to Sports Relief. I know that there are so many charities, all of equal worth, it is difficult to know which ones to support. I am not sure of the final amount collected today but I know that viritually all children brought in their pound. Mrs Hopkins organised it all for us and got the children working out at lunch time.
More monetary success!
In January I wrote a bid to get £17,000 to improve our outdoor area by Oak classroom. We want to have a covered free flow outdoor area for the KS1 children to be able to use during the day. We found out yesterday that we were successful and would be getting £15,300 from the County and we make our contribution of £1,700. I have asked for the project to start ASAP!
Mental Health and Well Being
This is a hot topic at the moment and rightly so. Children and adults cannot be expected to thrive unless they feel well in themselves, physically and mentally. This week we have had Chris Powell from GHLL working with Willow class putting together a program of activities to help them and Oak children to keep their steps up. We also had Misha from the Wye & Usk federation taking us pond dipping. We all had a fabulous time, although one or two children got a little wetter than planned! Good job that we have spare clothes!
