Den Day for Save The Children

Posted 16/6/2017

Some amazing team work took place this morning with the children of all ages grouping together to make some magnificent dens to raise money for the charity Save the Children! The children kindly brought in various resources to share out to make their dens. After constructing and playing in their dens, they had a short opportunity to walk around and look at all the other dens.  A BIG thank you to all the children for their super efforts and for the families for bringing in the resources as well as generously donating money.  Just over £100 was raised and Mrs. Capel was pleased to send off the money straight away today to help the charity!

DHL Lorry Visit

This week the children learned the importance of how to keep safe near lorries.  They learned about the blind spots that the driver has as well as the stopping distance of the lorries. Clambering safely into the cab of the lorry, some of the children had the experience of seeing for themselves what it was like to sit in the massive vehicle. During the experience, the children had plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
