Pupils from Park Lane and New Road Primary Schools were invited by Jones Brothers Civil Engineers to write letters and diary entries for a time capsule. Pupils visited the site of the new bridge at Kings Dyke and were given a tour of the construction works by the site manager and shown where the time capsule would be buried.
The pupils’ writhing was placed into the capsule by Mr Litten. The letters were very moving as the children had written about the pandemic and the impact on their family, childhood and education.
The pupils represented their schools brilliantly and both schools were invited back for a future visit.
Time Capsule entries!
Time to play!
All of us at Park Lane just wanted to say a massive thank you to FOPLS who kindly donated money in order for us to purchase some new playground equipment for break and lunchtimes.
The pictures show the children with some of the new items which will help to make lunch and break times more interactive.
Time to put your feet up!
After a whopping 31 Years at Park Lane as a Midday Supervisor, Mrs Graves has decided it's time to put her feet up! On Friday, Mr Litten went to Mrs Graves' home to present her with a bouquet of flowers and a gift voucher and to thank her for the commitment she has given to the school over the years. We wish her all the very best on her retirement as she truly deserves it!
World Book Day/Red Nose Day
To celebrate having all of the children back in School, we decided to hold World Book Day & Red Nose Day on Friday. We were amazed at the effort that the children (parents/carers) had gone to. The children spent the day taking part in lots of fun activities and it was a real pleasure to see so many smiley faces!
Foxes Dance Marathon
The Foxes Class really enjoyed their Dance Marathon as part of their fun filled day to celebrate World Book Day & Red Nose Day!
