We asked the school if they would like to keep or change the current Eco Code which is posted in each class and throughout the school. The children voted to change the code and lots of new designs were submitted to the Eco Team.
After careful consideration4 designs were chosen. These designs came from children in 5JM and 3CR . It was decided that we should create our new Eco Code by merging these the 4 designs
SO HERE IS OUR NEW ECO CODE:

Last week, we (the head boy and girl), along with Year 5 pupil council representatives and Miss Harper, went to Abbey Primary School to join their Harvest Mass celebration.
We arrived in a taxi at the school and the head teacher, Miss Tallon, showed us wround and took us to the Abbey next door to the school. There were lots of different people there; children, nuns, families, teachers - all from different backgrounds and cultures but all equal and all catholic.
During the mass, there was singing, prayers, hymns and a lot of standing and kneeling. Every child knew all of the words off by heart. They had put a lot of work into the celebration and had written poems and speeches for everyone to read out and share.
There was a communion and adults took bread and wine and many people went up to be blessed by Father Gabby (the priest). The mass celebrations are very important to the school and the children who go there and we found out that they have mass as part of their school day once a week.
We learnt some other facts too; many of the children attend mass with their families every week on either and Saturday night or on a Sunday, the children have been part of the catholic faith since they were born and so many of their customs and traditions are a part of their every day lives and in The Abbey there are pictures on the walls which show the 12 stations of the cross - these are very important to catholics and would be found in any catholic church across the world!
After mass, we went into the school and talked about the things we had noticed and the similartites and differences between our schools.
We really enjoyed our experience and learnt a lot from it.
Thank you Abbey Primary for inviting us along!

On Wednesday Morning Mrs Tarver and Miss Maltby rescued an injured hedgehog that was lying underneath one of the cars in the main car park. It looks as though it has hurt its hind leg.
The Hedgehog was carefully placed in a cardboard box, wrapped up and Mrs Hawksworth put her insulated cup in as a hot water bottle.
Mr Tarver came and took the casualty to Hedgehog hospital.
So everyone, please be on the look out and alert to hedgehogs that are moving slowly about especially in the early morning so we can avoid accidents.
