The weather has been absolutely scorching and is due to be even hotter tomorrow for our final day.
Although parts of our school are air conditioned, not all the year groups are.
We’re asking you to collect your children early, before the hottest part of the day. We will be closing school at 12.15pm on Wednesday, just before lunchtime. If you’re unable to collect your child early, please let the school office know by phoning 01480 375113 or stopping by in person.
If your child usually walks home on their own and you would like them to be able to do so at 12.15pm then we must have written permission. Please send a signed note in with your child giving permission to walk home with the child’s name, class and your own name. We can’t accept verbal permission.
We wish you all a lovely summer holiday!
Yesterday, is the glorious sunshine, Year Five visited the food and farming festival in Peterborough. There was so much to see and do from dancing sheep, curly carrots and of course a tractor ride. The children represented our school wonderfully and I know this experience will stay with the children and teachers for years to come.
Year Five have been lucky enough to receive a reply from one of the companies we wrote letters to.
Histon Produce Co.Ltd thanked us for the letters we sent them and provided us with some examples of the work they are doing to have a more positive impact on our world. The examples include: Recycling cardboard boxes, using reusable containers and getting up to 50% of their produce from East Anglia to save on fuel and support our local economy.
We are looking forward to hearing back from the other companies we have written to.
Following our single-use plastic research, Year Five have been writing letters to the food produce companies who provide us with all the food the children eat during school dinners. We have given the companies lots of suggestions as to how they could change their single-plastic use ways. We hope they will take on board what we have written and try to change for the better.
