Happy new year! Happy New Hooks ! My thanks and appreciation to every single member of staff for their admirable efforts they go to to turn children on to education. It makes a massive difference.....
Class 5 had a very exciting morning becoming ‘parents’. We received a very special delivery of trout eggs which which are now responsible for! We hope to see the eggs hatch into alevins in the next couple of weeks. We are monitoring the water temperature twice a day and then we will feed and look after them once they have developed into Fry. What a wonderful opportunity to learn about life cycles live in the classroom!! Neil and Steve presented a wonderful, interactive introduction to the class, discussing the dangers to trout in the wild and why this scheme is increasing the trouts chance of survival to adulthood from 5% to 75%. We are very excited to rear our ‘babies’. We will keep you posted and look forward to releasing our fish into the River Yarrow in a couple of months time.
Class 5 will be so excited this morning! Where has our classroom blasted off too? Who has landed here? Let’s find out together

They were also voted for by other schools and awarded with the School Games Value - Passion certificate. What a great achievement!
Well done to each and everyone of them!

And of course, it all started with a Panto...
