Thank-you to everyone who donated coins in old plastic bottles – the total raised for Surfers Against Sewage is £200!! This will help:
Continue to build a movement in 2019 to save our oceans and beaches.
Help future generations to know the fun and excitement of a living ocean (as we do) and to feel its freedom and power.
Us to gaze out to sea and know that sea life is thriving, not choking on plastic or struggling to survive climate change.
Us seize this unique moment to push for a bold new Environment Bill that will truly protect our seas.
Together we are the voice of the ocean.
Now that the ground work has been done by the pupils, Y4/5 will have a full gardening afternoon 19th and 26th September. Y5/6 will garden the afternoons of 3rd and 10th October and Y3/4 will garden the afternoons of 17th and 24th October.
Due to the change in the weather, and in an effort to keep mess to a minimum, when your child is gardening, ideally, they will have a pair of wellies AND A BAG in which to keep them and at the very least an old pair of shoes or boots AND A BAG in which to keep them. This means that hopefully mud will be kept outside and not brought into school!
National Smile Month is the UK’s largest and longest-running campaign to promote good oral health.
Together, with thousands of individuals and organisations, National Smile Month highlights three key messages, all of which go a long way in helping us develop and maintain a healthy mouth. They are:
•Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
•Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
•Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
The aim of National Smile Month is to ultimately improve the UK’s oral health. Organised by oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, the campaign hopes to raise awareness of important health issues, and make a positive difference to the oral health of millions.’
Thank you for your support.
The Green Tree Schools Award is free, fun and has fantastic activities to help Dunn Street celebrate woods and trees.
They reward schools for completing environmental projects and encouraging outdoor learning. Their award is a fantastic way to enhance our school’s green credentials while inspiring youngsters about woods and trees.
Schools gain points for completing activities and progress through bronze, silver and gold levels to the prestigious platinum award. We are currently a “bronze” school, but work this term will see us move to “silver”!
We get a certificate when we complete each level and receive a fantastic wooden plaque to display in school when we reach gold.
As part of the scheme, KS2 welcomed the Woodland Trust for an assembly all about how fabulous trees are…

We have also applied for a schools’ tree pack and our application has been successful! This means we’ve earned two Green Tree Schools Award points for Dunn Street!
We can’t wait to get planting our Medium Wild Harvest (105 saplings)!
