Life Skills – 2nd November 2021
Our Life Skills week included a spot of gardening. It was great exercise and we loved working in the fresh air to make our outdoor area a cleaner, greener space! Did you know garden waste can be recycled into compost? We took all our leaves to Durham Household Waste Recycling Centre to be recycled.

Parliament Week – 1st November 2021
As part of our learning on this topic we interviewed Lydia and Alexander from Year 6 to find out more about the role of school councillor. We had lots of questions to ask! Lydia informed us that a school councillor needs to be responsible and confident to represent others. Alexander said, “School Council is a bit like a Parliament in school… we try make school a better place for everyone.” We will be voting for our Year 2 school councillors later in the week!
