    Triathlon Superstars (Tracey Bratley)

    What superstars Louis, Harry, Adam and Ewan are for completing their triathlon on Tuesday.  Before completing the triathlon, they set up a Just Giving Page as they wanted to raise money for the school as a way of saying 'Thank You' for their time at the school.  They smashed their £200 target and have raised £595 for the school.  Super proud of the children for using our school values in such a special way.  We will using the money to buy something sporty for the school.

    Star Count: a lockdown-friendly stargazing activity (Tracey Bratley)

    'We think that dark and starry skies are a special part of our countryside. Nothing beats looking upwards to see velvety blackness, with twinkling constellations as far as the eye can see.

    Our buildings and streetlights emit light, though, and this can affect our view of truly dark skies. We want to make sure that we can all enjoy starlit nights, and we need your help in measuring what effect light is having on our views of the galaxy.

    What is Star Count?

    The best way to see how many stars we can all see in the sky is… to count them! So we’re asking people from all across the country to become citizen scientists and look heavenwards from home for one night. Join in by choosing a clear night between 6-14 February 2021, looking up at the constellation of Orion and letting us know how many stars you can spot.

    The School Council and Eco Squad have decided to pick just two weekly actiities instead of two.  For half term, they have voted for a milk/juice carton birdhouse and a wormery.

    Birdhouse

    Wormery

       

    Click on the link for instructions: https://www.science-sparks.com/make-your-own-wormery/ or read the instructions below.

    1. Collect some worms from the garden. Look in the compost heap, under stones in damp places or dig a hole.
    2. Cut the top ¼ off the bottle, to make a lid. Make a slit in the side of the lid so that the top can close over the bottom part.
    3. Fill the bottle with alternating layers of sand, soil, sand, compost, sand etc. Spray each layer with water so that it is damp.
    4. Add a few worms to the top of the bottle and watch them burrow down. Then add the ‘food’ to the top. Wash hands well after handling worms and compost.
    5. Wrap the black cardboard around the bottle to make it dark. Worms do not like light and it will encourage them to burrow around the outside of the bottle so they can be observed.
    6. Place the wormery in a warm place. Remove the cardboard for observation periods and record findings. Check that the contents are damp and that there is food available for the worms.
    7. After 1 week, release the worms back into the garden.

    Do not feed worms citrus fruits or onions.

    Litter Picking (Tracey Bratley)

    A big thank you to Angela, Jess and George who collected 3 bags of litter on a walk from Duddenhoe End to Chrishall. The children were very proud of their achievement and what it meant for the environment. They were very surprised at how much litter there was.  As a school we must explore how we persuade everyone in the community to not drop their litter.

    This week we paid our tributes to Sir Captain Tom Moore and we all remember and be inspired by his achievements and wise words: ‘For all those finding it difficult, the sun will shine on you again, and the clouds will go away: tomorrow is another day.’  Inspired by Sir Captain Tom Moore, Josh and his football team are running 2K every day to raise money for the NHS.  We all wish you lots of luck Josh and we are all very proud of you.
