Today we handed over another crop harvested from our very own Biodome! These delicious carrots were grown from seed by our pupils and have been handed over to our School Cook, Steph, to make into something tasty!
On Monday the 22nd of May, our School Council were invited to attend the School Governors meeting to get an insight into how the governors work (making decisions and information sharing).
School Council children from KS2 were able to see how a meeting is held and how the group talk about key information that effects how the school will run. School Council were able to make a positive contribution to the meeting, and have left with a number of ideas on how they might hold their meetings in the future.
School Council will hold their own meeting soon to discuss school improvements from a pupil’s perspective. If you have any suggestions about school improvements or changes to how we make decisions here at Crabtree Farm, you can blog here or take your ideas to your Class Councillor so that they can raise it at the next school council meeting
On Wednesday 7th June Crabtree Farm will be taking part in a Humanities Day. This will be a fun-filled day of learning all based on history and geography objectives from our National Curriculum.
On this day, the theme for the entire school will be ‘Castaway’ and all our lessons will be based around this theme. To help the children maximise their enjoyment of this day, we would like them to dress up as island castaways! Therefore, we would ask that you help your child to prepare a suitable costume for this day over half term.
If you have any questions about this, please do come and speak to us at the end of the school day.
Today we had to say a sad goodbye to Mrs Shortland who after 27 years working at Bonington Infant School and Crabtree Farm Primary School retired.
Over the years Mrs Shortland has taught many of you as well as hundreds of your children and has been a very committed professional and energetic member of our team who has enriched the lives of those she has worked with.
She will now have more time to spend with her family and friends and working in her garden. We are sure you will join us in wishing her a long and happy retirement.
