A Night Under The Stars! #parenthub

A Night Under The Stars Group Update...

Thursday

Today we have had the pleasure of Jamie from ‘Street Style’ who has been working in school to develop our outside space.  Children have worked hard to create an amazing seaside themed mural which will look really good when our sand pit area is finished! A big thank you to ‘Friends at Sutton’ who contributed £200 towards the £500 fee for the mural activity.  The money was also raised through the sponsored walk, thank you also to parents, carers, friends and family for your kind donations which are being spent to develop and enhance the school learning environment. 

Friday

Today we are chilling out after a busy, fun-filled week.  We are spending the morning making kites, smoothies and decorating our hot chocolate mugs as a souvenir to take home as a reminder of the fantastic memories created during “A Night under the Stars” Adventure Week.   We hope all of the children have enjoyed this experience.  We are incredibly proud of them and have some really great memories from the week.

Life's a beach!

That favourite pastime. Crab fishing.

Puffin Stuff.

Thirty years of visiting North Wales were surpassed by this boat trip. Puffins galore, then a porpoise and then a colony of seals with their pups. Two wildlife photographers have offered to send me their pictures of the trip. I've included some them below.

Firstly the Sutton crew:

 

Secondly the wildlife photographs courtesy of Steven Markham. 

The picture of the porpoise will hopefully follow next week.

Arts & Crafts #parenthub

Students in School have been taking part in a very wide range of activities, from craft making, graffiti wall art, t shirt designing, to movie making. 

Dudley Zoo

We have arrived and making new friends with the animals. There are a few we would like to bring back to Sutton. The Snow leopard and Tiger would look great on our school field. We managed to save Jess from being eaten by the crocodile so all safe and happy. 😀😀😀😃
