  3. 3. Yr 3 Hesketh Park Plant Hunt On Friday morning under the blistering sun, Year 3 set off for Hesketh Park as part of their science work on plants. We were given a guided tour around the Park by Dave Ritchie. We learnt about how they prepared the ground before planting and that many of the plants had been donated by the public. Inside the poly tunnel, we were shown how quickly hanging baskets could be beautifully arranged. We were shown a wren's tiny nest under the archway into the rose garden and were tested on our knowledge of herbs. Later we completed a tree and plant survey and now have some budding gardeners in the Year Group! We were lucky to see a few squirrels scurrying up the trees. A fantastic time was had by all! Handwriting Competition PTA Fashion Show As the improvement of handwriting across the school has been a big focus of our school improvement this year and we have been extremely delighted at the progress the majority of children have made, we are going to hold a special handwriting competition. On Friday 11th June all children will be given an opportunity to produce a piece of handwriting for the competition. Each class will have 4 prizes: Best boy's handwriting; Best girl's handwriting; Most Thank you to all models, parents and staff. A Improved boy's handwriting and Most Improved fantastic time was had by all and we raised £402 for girl's handwriting. So get practising over the PTA funds. Photographs can be viewed on the school holiday! website. School Photographs The class and team photographs will be taking place during the week beginning Monday 14th June. We are offering parents the opportunity of having a different style of photograph instead of the formal class photograph. For a number of years our photographs have been taken solely by Tempest but this year we have also invited in Ward Hendry to take some so that parents can decide which they prefer. We have arranged it during the same week so both samples should arrive back at a similar time so parents will be able to make their choice.
