Learning from the Land Week - What a load of Rubbish

A super week was had by all, despite the challenge of lots and lots of rain.  It has been great to see are children so strong in their conviction of enabling change and speaking so clearly about littering, plastic problems, food waste etc.  They have had a great mix of debates, writing, art, drama and poetry.  Teaching Assistants have led lots of workshops gathering children of all ages to work together to make tyre planters, develop the community garden, litter pick, create sound gardens out of junk, tree decorations and so much more.

The end of the week was celebrated with our Recycled Fashion Show where all our children paraded the catwalk to model their 'rubbish' outfits.

Learning from the Land Week - What a load of Rubbish

After waving off our Year 6 for their week's PGL adventures, we started our special themed week. 

In Worship, we looked at the good and bad in our environment and thought about our responsibilities.  Lots of suggestions for good - trees, plants, birds, animals but sadly lots for bad too - waste, dog poo, plastic, litter, chewing gum! We are looking forward to using the week to make a difference - do some clearing up, transform some unwanted items, challenge our thinking.

During the day, I also met with staff from Hazeldene and we have been planning some more links with our school to start very shortly.

Staff from St. Leonard's joined our staff meeting to look at children's writing together.

The Week Ahead - 10th June 2019

Another different week at Salesbury - Year 6 are off on their PGL adventures for the week.  I am sure they will return on Friday with lots to tell us and even more dirty washing.  In school we are having our Learning from the Land Week, this year entitled 'What a load of Rubbish' - lots of workshops and environmental learning ahead.  Year 5 will be going on their third visit to Cobble Hey Farm on Wednesday and I am sure they will notice lots of seasonal change.  Also, looking forward to welcoming some of our new pre-school children and their parents for lunch!

Orienteering

A first place to one of our Orienteering teams this week in the competition.  They really had to fight a very wet afternoon for their victory.  Teams did very well and now look forward to the Lancashire Games.

Blackburn Music Festival

Beautiful singing enabled our Chamber Choir to receive two first and two second place awards.  Their rehearsals have sounded amazing so it is very well-deserved.  Thank you to Mrs Fourie for her preparations, commitment and work with the children.  A wonderful opportunity again for them all.
