New Friends - new connections!

This week we were delighted to welcome our new friends from The Prince of Wales School, Dorchester. Along with Mr Farrington (the Headteacher), Mr Spracklen and Mrs Howell, the children travelled up from Dorchester and took part in an exciting, fun-packed day alongside the members of the school councils from both Newport and Belle Vue Schools.

After sharing a video about their school with us, we enjoyed making sculptures together to try to persuade people not to drop litter. We all decided that litter was a problem wherever we lived!

In the afternoon, we enjoyed watching some presentations our friends had made about being an Eco-School and posted lots of questions. We are looking forward to receiving answers soon.

One of the best parts of the day was when we enjoyed lunch together and played in the playground with the rest of Newport School. We discovered that we all liked to play the same sort of games and that all three schools were lucky to have lots of exciting huff and puff equipment.

We were very sad to say goodbye at the end of the day but we are really looking forward to future collaborations.
