It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Yesterday we saw our first ever Christmas tree sale on the grounds of our lovely little school…and it looks like someone remembered to order the snow!

A big thank you to our PTA volunteers who got themselves all wrapped up to brave the chilly weather to provide steaming teas, coffees and fantastically festive, mulled wine and mince pies.  

The lovely folk over at Hagg Farm Christmas Trees make it part of their festive business to support local charities.  This year we were lucky enough to be one of their chosen three charities, meaning upon purchasing their customers could decide which of the three would receive their 5% donation from each tree sale – amazing!

This was our first collaboration with Hagg Farm, bringing their Christmas trees to our school grounds for one day only, which turned out to be a huge success, supported well by the families of our school children, residents of The Bird Estate and the surrounding areas.

“Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree

How lovely are your branches…”   

Stunning Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes, were carefully chosen, then netted up and later delivered.  The afternoon was a huge success with a donation of 10% of all tree sales on the day.  Fantastic!

We will certainly look forward to hosting this popular event again in 2022.

With the generous donations on the day and throughout the tree selling season we were lucky enough to raise an amazing £373.88 and we were also given a fabulous Christmas tree for the school too!

Take a look at a few of the beautiful purchased trees all dressed up.

Sunflower competition

🌻 Here are some of the FANTASTIC final entries for our Sunflower Competition that has been running since last term!
🌻 We are super impressed with how big they have grown but also how well the children have looked after them!
🌻 We have really enjoyed the regular updates throughout the Summer and we hope you have enjoyed watching them grow!!
🌻 The children below were finalists and recipients of a treat from the PTA as we feel their amazing efforts totally deserve it!

And the winner is…Flynn in year 1/2 !!


Flynn managed to grow 3 incredible sunflowers! His tallest of them is 232cm, which is the tallest he’s ever grown, so we hear that he is really pleased!  Amazingly, this sunflower had its original flower head eaten by a pesky squirrel, but still managed to survive and grow another head!  Congratulations Flynn!
