The Big Sunflower, by Mrs Bailey

Date: 28th Mar 2018 @ 8:36am

The Big Sunflower

Look out for a small envelope in the children's book bags - inside you will find a sunflower seed which we are encouring you to plant at home as part of the Big Sunflower Project. This project aims to raise awareness of the rare neuromuscular conditions centronuclear and myotubular myopathy by growing sunflowers.

The Information Point for Centronuclear and Myotubular Myopathy have given us some sunflower seeds which we are distributing out to the children in school. They hope that their distribution of the seeds will raise awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy as well as allowing participants the opportunity to see the sunflowers being grown by others taking part in the project.

The charity have asked that in return we send them some photographs of the seeds being planted, photographs of the flowers as they grow and / or when they have flowered. Please send your photographs in to school before the middle of July (13th) and we will send them collectively to Great Boughton Council who are coordinating this event. If you would like more information on the project please see the project website: https://thebigsunflowerproject.wordpress.com/donate/

Date: 16th Feb 2018 @ 1:49pm

What a fantastic afternoon of Netball it was! 

On Thursday, Miss Jones took 8 children to Blacon High School to take part in a High 5 Netball competition. The children played a new position for each game and really developed their netball skills. For some of the children this was the first  time they had played Netball! The team won 3 games, drew 1 and lost 1. This gave them an overall 2nd place; narrowly missing out on a semi-final place. 

Well done to Matthew Y, Ruben, Cameron, Macie, Ruby, Lily, Olivia and Masie. 

Many thanks to Ruben’s Dad and Ruby’s Dad for assisting with transport and thank you to Macie’s Mum  and Maisie’s Mum for coming along to support the children.

Suggested name for the room:

Why do you feel this is an appropriate name
