Today in English the Pandas were testing food that contained palm oil and food that didn’t contain palm oil. We participated in a debate to see whether using palm oil in food is good for the rain forest. The outcome concluded that palm oil is not good to use in food, we are now ready to write our persuasive letters to Asda this week to ask them to take palm oil out of their products.
On Friday 16th November, Staniland celebrated Children in Need. We had a spotty non-school uniform day and donated money to nominate a member of staff to get pied. Mr Roark and Mr Russell were the unlucky pair to get voted, and this along with our Children in Need bake sale helped us raise nearly £1000 for charity.

Today the whole school celebrated our annual Harvest Festival. We had an assembly for the children to learn more about the harvest and to show all of the food that we managed to collect, which will be donated to the local food bank. We are incredibly grateful for all of the donations that we have received and want to give a huge thank you to everyone who took part.
On Friday 28th September the whole of year 2 took part in a PE day at our Tollfield campus.
We set off just after register and traveled the short distance across town, where we were met by the PE team.
The children had a very busy day learning and developing lot of sporting skills, from ball control to working as a team.
All of the children had a very active and fun day, and were still chatting about it all the way back to school.
Year 2 had a great time at the Sam Newsom Centre. They saw lots of different performances by the students of Boston College. They sang, danced and they even got to go on stage too! They loved every single Disney song they sang and joined in as loud as they could.
