Nafferton Primary School Year four and five pupils enjoyed hot cross buns as part of a special farm to fork community project, as they learned how their food travels through the manuafcturing process before ending on their plate

Youngsters have been busy with a a variety of projects this term, culminating in decorted eggs.

Water Aid Day took place on Friday 11 April, comprising a fun educational day of talks and workshops, as well as

stalls/games for the children.

Sport Relief around the field was enjoyed by pupils, staff and parents and raised £234.53.

Class photographs are being taken on the morning of Wednesday 30 April.

Years three and four start their 10 week swimming lessons at Driffield Leisure Centre after the Easter holidays.

And the school has organised a textile collection with Bag2School in order to help raise funds for the school.

Bag2School are the UK’s leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since its inception in 2001 they have now paid out over £16 million.

As well as raising vitally needed funds for the school, the scheme also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 1,081,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
