Last week the children got to buy lots of books, cakes, games and toys at our Bring and Buy sale. They raised an amazing £518.50 which will pay for bookcases and books at Chessay Ma Jaw school in The Gambia. At the moment the school has very few books and no bookcases so this will make a huge difference to the school. A very big thank you to the children and parents for giving the toys and to everyone that made cakes.

Nursery has great fun exploring the huge block of ice they found in their playground on a very cold day.

Following a water survey of children and parents about water use we found that everyone took very long showers and were wasting water. So the Eco-Buddies decided to encourage families to have shorter showers.


Shower shorter, save water! Keep your shower shorter than four minutes. The Eco-Buddies came up with a song which is here! All of the children are invited to take part in a competition over the Christmas holidays to draw either Danny the Drip or Sammy the Shower head. There will be three prizes per year.

On Thursday 10th December, ten year 6 girls and nine year 6 boys represented Springmead at the SFO Indoor Athletics which is one of the biggest competitions on the sporting calendar.


There were a variety of events that the students had to take part in including throws, jumps and sprints and for most of these we received some really high scores! After a tough competition the final result was 2nd place for both the boys' team and the girls' team! I am so impressed with how each member of the team competed and encouraged each other, I could not be prouder!


Well done to Eva, Keira, Emma, Hannah, Sophie, Samadhi, Macey, Shenell, Kaira, Jasmine, Charlie, Harry, Callum, Alfie, Sean, Owen, Kai, James and Josh.

The children in the Garden Room have been getting arty!  

They have been doing some self reflection and have identified their own personal strengths …their ‘Star Qualities’. They have made beautiful wool and PVA Christmas stars to display these.

After October half term, Mrs Harvey set the children a challenge, to work together to create a recycled Christmas Tree. 

They decided to make it out of used egg boxes….LOTS of used egg boxes!  (Thank you for the donations and  to all those parents that have had to eat omelettes for weeks!)

They painted the egg boxes, one by one at the end of each lesson.  It took a lot of patience over many weeks, but it grew….and it grew!… and with some excellent teamwork I think they have done a spectacular job.

Total cost:  £ NOTHING
