B Cador: February 2017
In May, churches and chapels in the local area are hosting a weekend event: 'Stitches and Stems'.
The school have been asked to contribute to the event by making an animal for the Noah's ark scene, which will be on view in one of the chapels and churches. We are going to make a tiger!
Would you like to get involved? Do you knit? Do you know someone who likes to knit and would knit some squares for us? If you're not a knitter, why not learn how — we can help you get started!
We need lots of 4 inch / 10cm squares. All colours of knitted squares are welcome but we'd especially like black and orange for our tiger.
PCSO Sharon Jones and PC Nicky Berry are getting in on the act! Sharon is an absolute novice and had her first knitting lesson at the Coffee Stop last Tuesday!

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
