Daffodil Planting

 

IMG_0143On Thursday 11th September we celebrated the enrolment of our new pupils by planting more than 100 daffodil bulbs on our school grounds. This is an annual event and each spring we enjoy the host of golden daffodils and spring flowers which grow around our school.IMG_0115

The pupils also had an opportunity to see the horse chestnut tree which was grown from a chestnut in 1987 and planted just inside the gate as a sapling 25 years ago. This is the first year that the tree has produced horse chestnuts or “conkers” and each class got a chestnut which they can plant. Maybe in another 27 years, the pupils in 2041 will have the opportunity to see the first chestnuts on another tree!

I’m Super

I’m excellent, fabulous, great as can be!
Astoundingly splendid. Yes, seriously!
I’m wickedly wondrous to such a degree,
That I’m out of this world. I can see you agree!
Breathtakingly super, a sure guarantee,
There’s no one as peachy or first class as me!
Phenomenal homework comes most easily,
So why is last week’s marked in red with an ‘E’?

And her parents had to pay the bill.
