B Cador: April 2017
I have just signed the school up to a school recycling project called 'Don't Bin it Tin it' being hosted by the British Ironworks Centre at Oswestry.
- They are asking schools to take part by collecting tin cans and the 1,000,000 they hope to collect (obviously not just from Wrenbury) will be used to make a spectacular bust of her Majesty the Queen.
- The project is aimed at educating children about the importance of recycling and the responsibility we all hold to help save the environment.
- Information leaflets will be sent home once received.
Please can you start collecting your cans BUT wait until we have received our collection bin before bringing into school.
Many thanks in anticipation of your support for this project,

I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
