Jake, Fern, Ben & Rebecca helping Reverend Knight with the Junior Harvest assembly. Amy from Year 1 was preparing her pot for planting the daffodil. On Tuesday 5th of October it was harvest day. Hooray! Reverend Knight came in to explain to us what it was about and let us plant daffodil bulbs. Firstly, he placed stones in the bottom and then the compost. Next, he placed the bulb and topped with more compost. Reverend Knight wanted the daffodils to grow before the end of the assembly so he made everyone sing, dance and shout to persuade them to grow! It was very funny, but he realised it would take until spring. In the end we got a plant for each class, and we have to take special care, especially to water it. This assembly was fun, and we can’t wait for more. KS2 collected over £100 which will be passed to the charity selected by the School Council. A very big thank you to everyone who donated. by Molly Glinn News team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack

  6. 6. YR6 Trip to the Musical Firework Competition Last Friday Year 6 went to the Firework Competition at Kings Garden. We all met at 6:30 by the old bus station now known as the entrance to Morrison’s. It was only a short walk to get there and before we knew it we were there. We found a spot round the Marine Lake and waited until the fireworks began. It was an amazing sight to see and it was all in time to the music. Everyone enjoyed it. After it finished we went for a short walk and passed the Lifeboat Station and we saw Mr. Hesketh! Moreover, we saw the large tractor used to tow the boat and before set off we all got a sticker each and gave a donation to the life boats. Then we all set off singing songs until we got back to the bus station. We had a few minuets left and as we sat down three people came past on their bikes covered in lights! It was a very fun night.
