Everything is starting to flourish now that some sunshine has appeared in the Vine School Garden. Year 2 have been harvesting purple sprouting broccoli and lettuce this week, to serve in the Vine Café. Garden Club members have been busy constructing a tunnel and planning an irrigation project which will use rainwater from the potting shed to water our plants over the summer. Other plants to look out for over the coming weeks are peas, beans, beetroot and carrots. Later in the summer term we will be planting our sweetcorn and brassicas. We have also booked a visit from Cinderella's Fairy Godmother over the summer holidays and are hoping to see a very fairytale-like pumpkin, or two by September. Lastly – do look out for our 'Vine Growers Marigold Competition' coming soon! Read more...

It’s official! This half of the summer term, swimming lessons for Sapphire class have begun at St Neot’s Leisure pool. We are proud to report that the children’s behaviour has been impeccable and their progress fantastic! There has been lots of fun and laughter with smiles all round. Non-swimmers have gained in confidence swimming on their fronts and backs with the aid of woggles and floats; practising ice cream “scooping” with hands and arms; kicking beautifully in the water with minimum splashing. Whilst keeping their chins in the water, some children have started to swim a short distance unaided! Swimmers have been happily learning to improve their swimming speed, stamina and technique. Here are some of their comments: “I love it, I love it, I love it!!” “We do races and it’s good fun.” “You can collect things from the bottom of the pool and swim underwater to touch the blue lines.” “The teachers are very kind and while we are swimming, we are having fun at the same time as learning how to swim.” “There is free time and we swim with our friends. Miss Smalley got splashed all over!!“ Watch this space – We will be bringing you more news about Moonstone class and their progress at swimming lessons in June! Read more...
By Kira, Alfie, Ella, Cara, Sydney, Poppy and Cerys.

This version is the sixth draft and Mr Wadsworth wanted to know our opinions and if there was anything he should change. Read more...
