In 2020 we worked in Partnership with the local community to take part in the Scarecrow Festival, the theme this year was 'books' and the children chose 'The Scarecrows Wedding.' The children worked alongside staff to design the scarecrows, were they developed their artistic abilities and fine motor skills as they drew the faces. The boys and girls used their problem solving and gross motor skills to stuff the scarecrows limbs with hay and showed great attention to detail and cognitive skills as they remembered Betty O Barley needed a necklace of shells and pink flowers. The children and staff recieved a 'Highly Commended Entry' Certificate from the Local Minister.
