Croftlands Infants School

Off to a good start. Today Jayne came in and joined our year 2 maths group. They started to cost out all the materials we need over the next eight weeks. This was followed by meeting with the school council to discuss our marketing strategy and decide which companies to write to ask for donations.

The Maths group discussed prices of coffee, tea, milk, sugar and orange juice for the Art exhibition so we can serve refreshments on the day. The children also helped Mrs Procter to think of 26 shops in Ulverston to display pictures made by the children to accompany a competition.

Yesterday Jayne from Oxleys came into School with the Evening Mail photography to take photographs of Mrs Procter's class showing their lovely paintings of animals finished and ready to display in local shops in Ulverston.

The Butterfly class have been designing images of insects and animals ready to transfer using fabric pens onto their t shirts. There are some fantastic designs and we will be able to sell them at the art exhibition.

The Owls also have been busy this week getting their clay tiles made and painted.

If you go down to the woods today you will see that our reception Ladybirds class have been busy. They have been preparing their 'How many Ladybirds can you see in the picture' game. The pictures have been put in local business on Croftlands and the children will be able to go round and count up how many they can see for a small fee.

Also our Ulverston shop treasure trail is up and running. Parents and children can come along to our office and get a sheet for £1 to go on the hunt. A great idea for half term next week.

Our art exhibition took place on the 6th March and was attended by Jayne from Oxleys.

The Mayor of Ulverston Mark Wilson came to cut the ribbon to open the exhibition.

The children's work was displayed beautifully around the community centre and the public could then vote for their favourite piece of art.

There was a raffle, face painting cake stall, guess the Teddie's name and guess the dog's birthday.

Ulverston Now magazine also did a piece on Bright Stars and the children's art.

On the day we made around £634 that included the town trail.

Some of our parents have ordered some of the photographs to buy.

We have had lots of excellent feedback from everyone and it was a most enjoyable afternoon and we are all very proud.
