Mrs Bailey's Gardening Projects
More Gardening success!
Gardens In Bloom Competition 2017
Our children decorated pots with a variety of colours, materials and objects to make some fantastic designs. These are currently on display in the front entrance. The judges had a hard time to decide who were the winners and praised all that took part.

We also received a certificate for Runners Up in the school garden category.

Garden Plant Sale - May 2017
We sold a wide variety of different fruit and vegetables and raised £189.75. The money raised will go towards new garden equipment.
The totals raised were:- For the Roald Dahl charity we will be sending £130.57 and for, Macmillan we will be sending them £379.89. So once again thank you for all your contributions, help and support.
Leigh Park has talent
We held our own Barncroft Talent auditions and six acts were chosen to perform in front of Years 3 to 6. From this, three acts were selected for the semi-final which took part at Park Community school. It was a long but enjoyable day against lots of other talented children from various schools around Leigh Park. Although we didn't win this year, it was great fun to take part in the community event.
Mrs Bradshaw's Aspiration Group Activities
This academic year we have been piloting an Aspiration Group for Year 6 children. The aim is to raise aspirations and help the children identify what they might like to do as a career. Events have included visiting:
The Ark, an animal rescue centre for aspiring vets,
Bosmere school for potential teachers,
Alandown Motors for engineers and mechanics,
Pallant House Art Gallery, Chichester for creative artists
and coming soon... a visit to the News Centre for a budding journalist.
We are very lucky to have Mrs Bailey to help Barncroft children learn how to grow plants. These plants are sold on to raise money for our school activities and our last sale in May 2016 raised an amazing £233!
Fundraising for Sports Relief and other charities
We combined fund raising for three charities in one day, Downs Syndrome Society, Brain Tumour and Sports Relief.
Sponsor a Child
We sponsor a little boy called Emmanuel, who was born in 2008 and lives in Kampala, Uganda. He lives in Hands of Love Foundation Child Centre and as a school, we aim to raise at least £20 per month to support him.
