Thank you so much for your generous gifts for the foodbank and the £220.20 donations for CAFOD.
Many thanks to everyone who brought in food for the food bank in Swanage, or money to help CAFOD in their work around the world. We were overwhelmed by your generosity. We held a lovely outdoor Harvest sharing time, followed by worship in our classrooms.
We are preparing for our Harvest celebration this Friday. We will be supporting CAFOD and our local foodbank.
Year 6 visited the Shire Hall Museum in Dorchester where they found out about how we know about the past? What are artefacts? What kind of sources might one use?We also learned about Saxon Crime and Punishment and compared to our previous learning about the experiences of Elijah Upjohn in Victorian times.
Year 6 had a super day at Leeson House where they developed their mapping skills – reading bearings using 6 figure grid references – and completed some team building challenges… and what gorgeous weather!

Someone in Year 4 received an important reply this week, after writing to Her Majesty The Queen. Poppy Scott had written expressing her concerns about the use of plastic in packaging. She received a courteous reply and suggested Poppy visit www.royal.uk and particularly the section entitled The Royal Household and the Environment.
Well done and thank you to the two Year 2 children who have been litter-picking on their way to school each morning.
