Bee Yourself Day

by Speyside High School


22 November, 2016

Speyside High school’s pollination project held a Bee Yourself Day on Friday 7th October. The group involved in bringing this idea to life worked very hard to achieve the goals set for this day. These were to Raise Awareness of the different pollinators in our local area and to Raise the Money needed to fund our ideas. The day was a great success as many people came with donations and they got in the spirit by dressing up as different pollinators in hope of winning the prize of best dressed. Along with the costume competition there was a variety of stalls including the Treasure Hunt, Meet the Pollinators and a cake stall as well. All in all, the day was a great success as pupils and staff alike got involved across the school. The pollination project here at Speyside High is proud to say that we have raised a grand total of £140 to help us fund our pollinator-friendly ideas.

Headlands Primary School

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

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.
