Bug Club keep on digging!


As fast as we dig up those weeds they grow back! Here we are working hard to find our vegetable plot!

Food Bank donations

This year we collected tins and packets of food at our Harvest Festival service. We do this every year, but this time it was amazing. There were so many donations that we had to make several journeys backwards and forwards to the hall to bring them all outside.

Here we are with just a few of the bags.


Once the boot was full we started to fill the back seat.


We know that all of this food will be used to benefit those families who struggle to afford some of things that we take for granted.

Well done everyone who made the effort to bring donations to our Harvest assembly.



The day the Duchess of Gloucester visited our school.

On the 5th October we had a very special visit.

The heavens open and start to storm.

The A.R.P warden takes me away,

I will probably be there to stay.

As the sky gets dark they put up the blackouts,

In my head I hear screams and shouts.


The Blitz

Sirens echo around the city,

Fear creeps through the streets,

Air rair shelters wrap anxious people in safety,

Search lights crisscross in the moon light like sharp swords clashing,

Luftwaffe soar over the city dropping bombs like confetti-no happiness here,

Worried wardens search the deadly streets for stranded survivors,

Sizzling smoke dances in the twilight hour,

Burning buildings fall like children’s tears,

Roaring fire, like cats tongues, lick through their tortured, tangled skeletons,

Quickly the

The Blitz

My skeleton is the twisted, tangled, tortured timber.

My hair is the smoke, weaving through the air.

My searching eyes are the maps leeding me from place to place.

My heart is completely empty of all the emotion.

My tears are the falling bombs, flattening everything.

Everywhere I look I

Well done!

Sometimes when we want something we have to work hard to get it. Well we would like ipads to use in our school. Our Enterprise Club members are raising money to pay for these. Yesterday they had a cake stall at our Parent Consultation evening. What a good idea that was.

We made

Hello bloggers!

It’s Bonfire Night, it’s Mrs Veck’s birthday, it’s parent evenings and it is Enterprise Club’s first cake sale. None of these are quite as exciting as this… Pass the Blog has come to Heron Primary School. It’s our week to look after the blog and we intend to do this as well as we can!

At last, Pass the Blog has reached Gloucester, England.
