A new pond

by The Cedar School


05 August, 2017

As part of our new ‘Secret Garden’ we have a new homemade pond being put into place.  Polli:nation funding has provided us with some plants to attract wildlife and keep the pond healthy.  We have left it to fill up naturally with rain water and it is accessible to all our children as the path runs down two sides.

New Jackson Pollock work discovered in Haxby!

Headlands Primary School


12 July, 2018

Reception classes at Headlands have been learning about all sorts of Modern Art artists and have brought a giant Pollock inspired wildflower meadow out for the whole school to admire. It took up the whole side of the Out of School Club shed and the youngest children in school explained to everyone how Pollock dribbled, poured and splattered paint to create his art pieces. We hope you like it.....

Blooming Marvelous!

Headlands Primary School


09 July, 2018

Headlands Out of School Club children created the school's entry into the Bloom! Festival in York last weekend. They recycled old toys, yoghurt pots and transplanted grass turf and veg from the school grounds. We had great fun building our entry and placing it in our new ridiculously pink wheelbarrow - which we got to keep for entering - hooray! We also found out that lots of the veg that we used will flower, which many of the children didn't realise, so although our entry was mostly shades of green in a few more weeks we could have a riot of colour on our hands!

Mrs Hawthorne

Ayresome Primary School

We had Mrs Hawthorne visit school and talked all about how trees can change the local landscape and and help us to live there. We looked at a story about a man who planted trees and changes his valley into a wonderful place to live. We also looked at the different types of trees and flowers which we could grow in our area. We asked lots of questions and decided we would plant some trees to help our local area.
