Baking for Kafuro

Congratulations to four pupils in Rowan Class at Liss Junior School: Jessica, Jake, Gemma and Scarlett who have been baking all week. The wonderful cakes they  made were sold on the school playground today and after school. The  £106.76  (512,000UGX) money raised will be used to buy cooking equipment for Kafuro Primary School. Mr Stanley reported how much children at Kafuro enjoyed cooking in the cob oven, but there was a shortage of cooking equipment, so the Liss pupils have taken it upon themselves to help with this problem.

Thinksafe 2017

Yesterday, pupils from Maple and Rowan classes visited Queen Elizabeth Country Park for Thinksafe organised by East Hants District Council. The children experienced a range of practical activities on the following topics: Domestic abuse, animal welfare, stranger danger, fire safety, Royal National Lifeboat Institution and shop safe.

The children enjoyed the activities and were made to think carefully about what are the right choices to make in a dangerous situation.

SATs Party 2017

Congratulations to all of the children in Year 6 who completed their SATs tests this week. They have all shown a splendid attitude and tried their best. This afternoon was their SATs party where they were able to relax and play games on the field. There was plenty of food and a special ice-cream was provided. Many thanks to the PTA for buying the ice-creams.

Here’s a photo of the happy Rowan Class.

A very happy Rowan class

School Grounds Day

Yesterday was the third annual School Grounds Day and Rowan Class played a full part in the day. The children continued to work on building the bottle greenhouse with the assistance of Mr Haycock. Another group collected worms to top up our wormery, so that we can have some lovely compost in the future. A third group went with Joe Williams, Steve Peach and Mrs Court to clean out the nature area and cut back willow. While that group was up at the nature area they discovered a badger sett as well as some fabulous pond creatures.

The final job for the class was to plant plenty of vegetables including the tomato plant challenge we are carrying out with Kafuro Primary School.

We would like to thank Mrs Court, Steve and Joe for all their help. Photos of the day are below.

Sensational newspaper reports – Holes

In English, Rowan Class have been looking at the escape scene from Holes.

As a class we tried to think of emotive language and catchy headlines – particularly with alliteration. Here are the children’s articles:
