Primary School News
Lea Primary School Teacher, Louise James was worried that,
due to the new child seat law, the school would no longer
be able to take children out. Recently however, parent,
Jason Cross, who has 2 children at school heard this and
mentioned it to his employer, 'FAB Recycling'. The company's
Finance Director, John Hancock wanted to help and arranged
for 10 Child Seats to be donated to the school. 'FAB'
recycles scrap cars but they cannot reuse old child seats,
so they purchased 10 brand new ones.
the photo are Courtney Gittings, Annabelle Heenan, Elena
Bott, Jack Boocock, Oliver Cross and Rowan Attwood with
John Hancock of FAB.
The school are currently joining in with the 'Big Draw'.
The Big Draw is a Nation wide school art event and Lea Primary
art classes are working on a project based on Anthony Gormley's
'American Field' by making lots of clay figures, which will
eventually be displayed, lining up in a courtyard. Lea Art
Club, Brownies, Teachers, Parents and many others from the
Lea Community have have all contributed to the making of
the figures, only a few of which are shown below as most
are still waiting in the dry to be 'fired'.
the picture are Bethany Sherwood, Laura Aubrey, Roxy Thomas-Godwin,
Jack Dix, Daniel Clutterbuck and Samuel King with some of
the completed clay figures. The two on the tray have yet
to be fired.
A special 'Dress in Pink for Cancer Research day took place
at the school on Friday, 20th October and the photo below
shows both pupils and teachers in pink during an afternoon
the assembly a draw also took place. All children at the
school are issued weekly with a card containing 5 stars.
A star is removed from the card of children who misbehave.
At the end of the week, a draw is made - cards still containing
5 stars are gathered together and one or two children from
each class who have been good all week are given a small
prize. Being an impartial visitor, I was asked to make the
draw on Friday and, judging by the amount of full cards
in the 'hat', the pupils at the school are all well behaved!
