The arrival of The Roving Bookshop proved to be very exciting for the children as they were able to browse, choose from a wide range of books and spend their World Book Day tokens. It helped to encourage a love of reading, something The Pastures is passionate about. Children also enjoyed British Science Week, a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. There were a lot of ‘hands on’ activities such as creating a structure to prevent beach erosion and investigating what material would make the best brake pad for a bicycle.
Comic Relief proved to be a lot of fun with children allowed to come in pyjamas, ‘onesies’ or non-uniform and of course an array of red noses. Voluntary donations helped us raise £233. Thanks to everyone who made this possible including the School Council and Sporting Ambassadors who set up physical challenges on the bottom playground and a Red Nose Spot Hunt around the school grounds. Also, a huge thank you to everyone for their generous donations towards the Ukrainian Appeal. Everything (including the wellington boots) has been delivered to the Ukrainian Community Centre in Leicester, sorted and packed before being transported and distributed to refugees in Poland. A magnificent effort by all involved.
Finally, before we broke up for the Easter break, there were lots of special activities to enjoy including arts and crafts, Easter egg hunts and assemblies to remind us of the reasons we celebrate Easter and some of the traditions that we all enjoy.
