    The Dogs' Trust

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Charlotte and Biscuit from the Dogs' Trust came in to teach us dog awareness. We learnt the 3 rules when approaching a dog with an owner; ask the owner if we can stroke the dog, let the dog choose if it wants to be stroked, ask the owner where the dog likes to be stroked. Charlotte also told us what to do if approached by a dog without an owner - she showed us the "X-factor" position. A great session and the children were all full of information and listened carefully.

    Spring clean

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Everywhere Bear came home with me this week and took a swim in my washing machine - emerging smelling of spring blossom! Just want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to those that have hosted him, I know it can seem a little onerous but the children absolutely love him and see it as such a privilege to have their name pulled from the bag. Thank you for your support.

    We had lots of fun yesterday trying out new and rather unusual P.E. skills for sports day. So impressed with the determination and resilience of the children. Great attitude and great learning behavior.
