Roots & Shoots club members welcomed special guests, Dr Atkins and his dog, Pickle. Pickle is blind and was rescued by Dr and Mrs Atkins during the January flooding. We learned a lot about caring for animals in need of our help, even the homeless street dogs of Dar. Pickle has had a traumatic life, yet he is a sweet, calm and loving pet now.
Thank you Dr Atkins and Pickle for the wonderful visit!

The students of class 5B celebrated The Earth Day with a blend of educational and fun activities.
The week began with the 'Giant Earth Globe' project to reflect on the amazing beauty and complexity of our planet. The idea behind this project was to have an activity where students not only learn to work together as a team, but also to respect each other’s work. This activity proved a good way to develop team spirit and mutual support.
The celebration extended further with an awareness-raising whole school assembly which was aimed at improving understanding, care and stewardship of Earth’s vital resources and ways to practise sound, environmental citizenship all day, every day!
Over the Easter holidays, various work in and around school was carried out.
Work has now started on constructing the roof which will go over our hard court!
Year 5 had a fantastic day celebrating Japanese culture, art and cuisine.
They also made mini volcanoes erupt!
