Pupils at Hayeswood First School came to school today in non-uniform clothes in exchange for a donation to Wimborne Food Bank.
The Food Bank contacted local schools after Christmas to report unprecedented seasonal demand in the Wimborne area. The stock from Harvest and Christmas donations, which would normally last until well into the spring, had, by early January, dramatically reduced. We responded in support by organising a non-uniform day in exchange for a voluntary food donations. Each school collected an impressive stockpile of tinned and dried foods for use at the Food Bank!
Year 2 enjoyed a visit from our local Fire safety team. The children have been learning about The Great Fire of London and about fire seaftey in our homes and school now.

On Friday 29th June the whole school enjoyed different activities to explore our school values.
During our Values Day sessions, we explored what our school values mean, how we can display them in our actions; ultimately, how we can live them out.
Great examples of team work were shown within each activity, especially during the team challenges, stretcher carry, mental and physical activities.
Pupils were able to describe how they were displaying the values:
"We had to show empathy towards people who were not able to do the things that we were" - during dance activity.
"We needed to work as a team and effective communication was important. Someone need to show leadership skills and take charge" - during stretcher carry.
"We had to keep going and show determination, then show resilience when one way didn't work" - mosaic making.
Years 2, 3 and 4 visited Safewise on Friday 10th January and successfully completed the Junior Citizen tour - we all showed courage and compassion whilst thinking about how we can keep ourselves safe and help others stay safe too. This included keeping safe around fire, in the home, at the beach and the countryside, in a car, when walking, when using the train and what to do in an emergency. We even practised phoning 999!
Hedgehogs class visited Farmer Vernon at his farm to see where pine trees grow locally and to help choose one to bring back to school. The whole school then enjoyed making lots of decorations to dress the tree ready for our Christmas celebrations. Thank you Farmer Vernon and thank you to all of the parents who came to help with all of the making!
