Cooke Aquaculture Visit

As part of My World of Work, we invited David Brown (nursery parent) from Cooke Aquaculture, to come in and talk to us about:

  • salmon farming,
  • the importance of literacy, numeracy and HWB
  • the journey of food from farm to plate

A very informative and engaging session was delivered by David and Michelle.  Pupils were very inspired by the session, asking lots of pertinent questions and relating to their own experiences of fishing.

The bairns were kindly given a hat each, which will be very useful in keeping them warm now that winter is fast approaching.  A huge fresh salmon was gifted to the staff, so Mrs Missenden had fresh baked salmon for tea (the bairns have salmon to look forward to  at school dinners next term).

Thank you

Assembly – led by Early Years

Parents and grandparents were invited to join in with our whole school assembly this morning.

Numeracy and literacy in the Early Years class was celebrated, with “1,2,3,4,5…once I caught a fish alive” and “5 little speckled frogs” highlighting forward and backwards counting.  “Baby shark” has been a favourite during the term – alongside child-led learning about pirates, princesses and our bodies.

Our vision – Inspire Our Individual Stars to Shine Brightly – was shared and celebrated, with a whole school rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”.

Thanks to all who joined us.
