We hope you all have had a great Christmas and New Year celebrations. If you have any stories or pictures of what you got up to we would love to see them posted on the blog.
School starts again on Tuesday 4th Jan.
It has been a busy week for the infants so far. We are learning about owls. We have been looking at pictures of owls and writing about them.
We also disected owl pellets. In the pellets we found lots of interesting things. Bones, clothes moth lava and feathers
We have been well behaved most of the time but occasionally the teachers had to offer us treats to keep us in order!
As we build Peak Forest Primary School’s website we want to include pages on the history of the village and the school. If anyone has interesting fact, figures, pictures and stories that we can use please let us know. Feel free to do this by adding comments onto this blog entry. Be sure to leave your name as well!
Although this is being posted well after the event, I thought we should post a comment about the 2009 Buxton Well Dressing Carnival. With only a couple of weeks to go before the carnival took place, Peak Forest Primary School decided it should enter a float. Given that it is a small village school, to boost numbers they teamed up with Peak Forest Playgroup where there are many siblings of the school children.
After a lot of frantic activity a trailer was found (courtesy of Lomas’s) and staff and children all made costumes. The result was called “Down on the Farm” and you can see from the picture that they looked fantastic and all had a great time.
The school also won an amazing 3 – yes 3 – 1st prizes. Best Tableau on Vehicle, Most Humorous Entry, and Best Tableau.
Due to the snow, the school will remain closed on Monday 11th January.
