International Outdoor Classroom Day - 18th May 2017

On Thursday 18th May the children enjoyed themselves at the 'Outdoor Classroom Day' with activities provided by Athina's mum, Addi. She explains, "It's still not clear if their favourite game was the 'Ferocious Pirates-geocaching' or the 'Blind-fly'. What I do recall is lots of giggling and happy children running around wild and free! I truly hope the children look at their school playground with brand new eyes and they remember that wonderful discoveries can be made when we look beyond the obvious." To thank the 12 wonderful volunteers for their time and their enthusiasm Addi made them a special certificate, reminding them how awesome they are. These volunteers have also been given the opportunity to help name the canoe for Team AA. In total we raised £91 towards the purchase of a new canoe for Team AA. All the children that participated in the fun and games also received a specially designed certificate so they too remember that discovering and playing outdoors is a great way to learn and explore the world. On the day pictures of each winning team were taken and these have been incorporated into a lovely picture frame for all the classroom to hang on their wall. Addi added, "Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to inspire the children whilst celebrating such an important date. You will be pleased to know that St Margaret Primary School has been one of the 9,729 schools across the world that took part on outdoor activities; including places like: Hawaii, Alaska, Malta, Egypt, Thailand etc." School would like to thank Addi for giving her time so freely and for making this a great day for the children to enjoy.

During the summer holidays 2015 Miss B  volunteered in Ghana, Africa. Miss B was based in an orphanage where she was responsible for designing and implementing effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the talent and abilities of the children. Miss B helped the orphans to learn life-skills and get involved in the day-to-day running by making sure the children were fed, washed and dressed and by giving them personal attention.

In July 2015 the children and staff lit the school up in Yellow, green, red or black to support Miss B with her trip to Ghana. Reception had a special visitor and found out what life in Ghana is like! They even tried some Ghanaian food. We raised £438! Many thanks once again for your support!

Remembrance Art Work

Remembrance Sunday 1914-2014 British Legion veterans, town council members and artist Anna Pickard were amongst others who joined the PTA and parents on 11th November to unveil the Children’s art work commemorating those who lost their lives in WW1. There was one poppy for every serviceman from Horsforth who lost their life. The beautiful felt hanging was admired by all and veterans were especially touched by the school memorabilia, which included the Headteacher’s log book and registers from this period.We would like to say a big thank you to the PTA for arranging refreshments and for funding the artist.
