We were very privileged to take a group of Year 2 children to St Michael's church on Thursday to sing at a celebration service for the wonderful work that is being done to support the Poole food banks.
Email received from Gill Payne ( Poole Food Bank Coordinator):
Dear Twin Sails School
Thank you so much for sending your choir along to the Poole Foodbank 'Big Thank You' celebration event on Thursday last week.
The children were absolutely incredible and were certainly the 'stars of the show'.
I really appreciate your willingness to partner with us in this way and I do hope that the children enjoyed the experience.
I hope the remainder of the term goes well for you and that you all have a great summer break.
'Get Dorset Buzzing' at Hamworthy Park
We were thrilled to be invited by The Friends of Hamworthy Park to help establish a new wildflower area in the park. 3 of our year 2 creative group children visited on 2nd April. The children enjoyed laying the pre-seeded turf and scattering annual wildflower seed. Katie, a Community Conservation Officer from the Dorset Wildlife Trust also attended to promote their 'Get Dorset Buzzing Campaign' - https://www.dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk/get-dorset-buzzing
We look forward to watching the flowers grow and hope they will encourage more bees, butterflies and hoverflies into the park.
Letter of thanks from Friends of Hamworthy Park...........
The Friends of Hamworthy Park would like to thank the children for doing such a good job on Tuesday laying the turf and sowing wildflower seeds in the park. We hope they have been able to view the photos that were taken and others will be on our website in due course.
We shall be putting a higher fence around the area until it becomes established and a notice to let people know who did the hard work! We hope that in a couple of years the flowers and bug-life will be such that the school might be able to use it as a study area.
May we just add that the three children were very friendly and polite and a great credit to your school.
This week a group of year 2 children went to visit the residents of a local care home.
They sang a variety of songs and the residents joined in with their tambourines and bells.
It was a wonderful experience and brought a tear to many of the residents eyes.
I'm sure that both the children and all residents will remember the morning for many years to come.
I know we will.
Well done Twin Sails! We came 3rd in the Beat the Street competition.
Over the six weeks you walked 3,978 miles and collected 94, 445 points.
What an amazing achievement!
