School Council tree planting – thanks to Scholes in Bloom
We have planted another 120 trees from the Woodland Trust on the school grounds this week. Thank you to Scholes in Bloom and the School Council for helping to do this.
You can also see the Scholes in Bloom presentation here that children in school saw last week too. The village looks wonderful!
Our School Councillors were busy at work this afternoon, digging holes and planting young trees in and around our school field. There were roses, hawthorns, dogwoods, wild cherries and silver birches.
There were 120 saplings to plant and, with the help of Scholes in Bloom volunteers,
….they manged to do it all in one (cold and windy) afternoon!
Thank you very much to our fabulous friends, Scholes in Bloom, who kindly gave up their time to help us – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you to Mrs Latham who ordered the trees and organised the afternoon. We promise to look after them and will enjoy watching them grow.
We had another visit from Tom Bates from Yorkshire Cricket this week. He worked with teachers last week, sharing coaching tips for us to use in lessons. He shared an assembly with us this week, talking to the children about cricket, upcoming coaching and competitions we will be entering.

Living and Learning: Identity
Our Living and Learning theme this half-term is Identity. Pupils will learn about what makes themselves and others special, valuing the similarities and differences between themselves and others and what is meant by community. This will be taught through our Living and Learning sessions and two focused weeks.
Anti-bullying week (11 November) ‘Change starts with us’
My Community themed week (25 November)
Our new school charity will be chosen as part of the My Community themed week. Every year, we nominate a new charity to support. This year, we have been supporting Cancer Research. We decide this on the basis of a Talk Time homework, and then school councillors make the final decision.
Our Living and Learning long term plan details the learning for each year group across the year and you can keep up to date with our weekly Living and Learning statements on the parent noticeboard in the playground and also on the school calendar. We will begin and end this half term with a focus on manners.
I apologise when I need to.
I say please and thank you.
