Thank you so much to everyone who supported our Fun Day. Over the past few weeks children have been bringing in bottles and items for the rainbow stall. We would also like to thank Spar in Artigarvan for their contribution to the bottle stall, the creamery for providing treats for break, Ali’s Steakhouse for the burgers, Mr Whippy for the ice-cream and to Mark Hetherington for his help getting the Full Swing vans up onto our pitch!!! Artigarvan definitely has community spirit when help is needed and we appreciate it all so much. We sent out a text to ask for any bakers to help out with the tea/coffee stand and we were overwhelmed by the response-thank you so much to everyone who donated tray bakes and buns. It was lovely to see all our families back at school and the children all having fun. We will update you of the final total raised in the coming days!!! Thank you once again for your continued support ☺️

This week we had our final week of Families Connect.  We are very pleased with the turn out and would like to thank each parent for their participation in the 8 week programme.  We really hope you enjoyed it and have gained some strategies to use with your child. 

We had lots of discussions each week and as parents ourselves, (Mrs Harper and Mrs Preston) we were able to contribute and relate very much the rewarding job of parenting.  We learned lots from each other and we hope that you continue to play the games and use the strategies that we discussed. 

Thank you for your support and commitment each week.

This term our 2 topics are based around the farm and in the garden.  We have had lots of exciting things happening over the last few weeks.

 We have watched our sunflowers grow taller and taller each day. 🌻🌻 Some of them are growing slower than others but we are having patience.  

We have watched 10 caterpillars grow, make cocoons and we have been able to watch as 9 of them have turned into butterflies. We even managed to watch 2 butterflies emerge from their cocoons. It was amazing to watch this transformation! 🐛➡️🦋 We will release them from the net into the world very soon. 

We also have 12 hen eggs sitting in an incubator and we are hoping in 3 weeks time we will have some baby chicks. 🤞🏻

We have had fantastic learning opportunities with all of the new life and we are very excited to watch our eggs very carefully over the next few weeks. 

Enjoy looking at our photos and keep coming back to see if we have any new friends arrive. 🐥🐥
