Friends funded whole school trip

Thanks to the support of our school community for our fundraising events the Friends of Himbleton First School have been able to fund a whole school trip to Think Tank Science Museum in Birmingham.  

The children had a wonderful day exploring the exhibitions and it tied in perfectly with a whole week of science focussed learning activities!

On 7th April 2019 30 children and their families walked completed either a 1.5 or 3 mile route around Himbleton village completing a trail left by the Easter Bunny herself! 

Each child received an easter chocolate bunny and a badge on completion. 

Thanks so much to everyone who took part - from the sale of refreshments and through the collection of sponsorship money we raised a fantastic £548.60 for the school! That is a fantastic acheivement and enough to pay for the forthcoming multi-day Creative Arts workshop led by Eekbatik artist Sarah Jones.

A Huge Thanks!

Once again our School Community turned out in force, despite a poor forecast and almost constant drizzle. 

A huge thank you to everyone who came and swept, cleaned, trimmed, dug, hosed, raked and baked - with so many willing pairs of hands we got through a long list of jobs and the school grounds look all the better for it!

A few parents (see photo) were inspired to create a new willow structure and got stuck into bending and twisting the thicket into a new arch shape which we hope will look fantastic once in full leaf.
