ROOTS AND SHOOTS
On Wednesday, Miss Jones and Mrs Andreou took 20 Year 5 pupils to Alnwick Gardens to take part in the ROOTS AND SHOOTS scheme.
The Northumberland Roots and Shoots Schools Programme in partnership with The Alnwick Gardens is now an established programme in Northumberland. Led by The Alnwick Garden and supported by public health professionals from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust the programme aims to offer children in selected schools an opportunity to learn how to grow, tend and harvest food for consumption.
Our pupils were exemplary- the coach driver told Mrs Andreou that, in his opinion, our school (plus one other!) has the best behaviour that he's seen. Well done for representing our school so positively.
