River Irk – Year 6 science/geography visit

We are very lucky to have the beautiful River Irk right on our doorstep! Year 6 visited this morning and even though the weather was not on our side, the children had an interesting time with Mr. de Boer. He showed us how to check the health of the water by measuring the levels of minerals and metals. The children could also check how healthy the water in the River Irk is by looking at which creatures are present in the water. A lot of Himalayan Balsam grows here too and is a problem for the indigenous plants, so we did some ‘balsam bashing’ while we were there.

Year 6 Craft Fair

We are very proud of the Year 6 children who decided they would like to become entrepreneurs and sell their home made items at the craft fair yesterday.

The brief was that they would produce, manage, sell and promote their own stalls, and they were all incredibly successful – with some children even selling out of their items very quickly. Items for sale included jewellery, home baked goods, wax melts and art work.

We had a amazing turn out, with children, families and staff all coming along to support our year 6 children and we are very grateful for all the encouragement and support you have given!
