Class 3 Visit Springwell Farm

Mr Walker gave Class 3 a brilliant morning of activities at the farm today. The visit started with a tour of the site and an introduction to the animals. Everyone stroked Casper the rabbit and most pupils groomed one of the Shetland ponies. After the tour the pupils planted Remembrance Day trees around the fence. Finally they all played together in the forest area where they hid in the dens and played hide and seek.

Mental Health Roadshow

On Monday three students from Kirk Balk Alternative Academy put on a mental health awareness roadshow for pupils at Springwell Special Academy. Class 3 went along and had a great time making all sorts of things. Their favourite was making stress toys with balloons and flour. By the end of the session all pupils were more aware of some of the mental health issues faced by people every day. THANK YOU KIRK BALK.
