The quiet area is now officially open! Emma, our PTA chair, cut the ribbon in front of the school council, who designed the area, staff members who supported and James Stout, who built the furniture. We will be adding some sensory features to the area, as well as some reading books and quiet games. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the transformation of this area happen, especially to Mrs Welch for her outstanding guidance of the school council and the PTA team.
The QPA allotment is bearing fruit – literally! We have tomatoes, potatoes and rhubarb being taken to the kitchen. Many thanks to all of the children in gardening club who have worked so hard, as well as to Mrs Hayward and her apprentices, Mrs Moore and Mrs Robertson.
Lots going on this lunchtime. The table tennis tables are out and the gardeners are making preparations for this year’s Bournemouth in bloom competition.
Mrs Hayward and her many helpers have now finished planting the onions into their beds. We hope to have enough onions for Mrs Powell’s cookery lessons next term.
Gardening club are getting ready for Spring – planting seeds in recycled containers from the kitchens. The rhubarb, cabbages and cauliflowers are coming along nicely too.
