British Legion Poppy Appeal


Sadly this year, due to Covid, we will not be able to sell sell poppies or remembrance gifts as usual on behalf of the British Legion.  However, we would like to still fund raise for this charity so all classes will be making craft poppies in school over the next few days. Your child’s poppy will be available for you to purchase for a £2 donation which can come into school next week on Remembrance Day  (Wednesday 11th November).  Mrs Mardell and Miss Rudki will be hosting special assemblies for the children on this day which will incorporate a minute of reflective silence.

 

Fulmer Home Grown Pumpkins

Last term Mrs Howells kindly donated a few little pumpkin plants that she had grown from seeds.  The Year 2 pupils at the time planted these in our raised planting beds and watched them grow into enormously long pumpkin vines.  In the Summer holidays three little pumpkins grew and in recent weeks we have watched them get bigger and bigger!

This week the pumpkins were harvested and we gave one to each class.  All the children had an opportunity to design a face for the pumpkin and the winners from each class had their design carved into the pumpkin.  There were some amazing designs and it was very difficult to choose the winners but congratulations go to:- Seher, Bertie and Jude.
