Team Gulval BiG DiG day another huge success!

On Saturday 7th October we welcomed families from our community into school with their tools, wheel barrows, paint brushes, and their time and enthusiasm for our 7th BIG DIG day event in just 4 years. The aim as always is to develop and create more exciting learning spaces for our children and this event was no exception. The pouring rain didn’t stop those that attended from getting stuck in to a whole array of tasks and as always, an incredible amount was completed including;

Removing willow trees to be replaced with a small woodland area

Installing goat house toys

Installing two new steps

Harvesting and clearing the Poly Tunnel

Installing a land drain

Painting our curriculum kiosk

Building tunnels for our rabbits

Repairing the entrance to the EYFS tunnel

Improvements to the chicken coop

Indoor ‘changing rooms’ to create a Year 6 common room

the list goes on….

 

Thank you to all our families (adults and children) who didn’t let the rain stop them and who did nothing other than get stuck in all day – you are all amazing!20171007_10594120171007_115613
