Thank you all so much for your generosity today. This morning I had the difficult task of judging the pumpkin carving competition. They were all spectacular which made the decision really difficult, so difficult I involved Mrs Lawrence and Mrs Frith. This event raised £65, so thank you Friends for organising it and providing the prizes. Don’t forget there is a Dressing up disco on Friday 2nd Disco organised by Friends.
If you would like to see more pumpkins then go to the festival at The Dean Heritage Centre.
Then your generosity just overwhelmed me with donations for the Harvest Festival, where all of the food goes to the Coleford Food Bank. We know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to feed their family in our community and I know that our gifts will be well received.
Bat Nav at Clearwell Caves
We were invited to participate in the new audio installation at Clearwell Caves. We got to learn about our heritage with the miners, the geology of the mines as well as how bats hear and navigate around their habitat. We had a lovely time and have already started to use the caves as inspiration for our writing. Foresters Forest supported the installation with their Heritage Lottery Fund.
More Greek inspired independent learning
I am really sorry to announce that Mrs Lawrence will be leaving Clearwell Primary at Christmas. She has worked, and continues to work, with enthusiasm and an enviable knowledge of our school and families. We will celebrate her time at Clearwell in December.
