This year we entered a competition where the children were tasked with the challenge of researching, designing and creating a miniature ‘Show’ garden with a key emphasis on reusing plastics.
In the UK an estimated 5.5 billion plastic bottles, 4.1 billion cups and 4.7 billion straws are disposed of each year. Half of all plastics are single-use applications. These figures highlight global concerns and worries about micro-plastics in our food chain.
The children needed to design and create a miniature garden that utilises plastics for alternative uses, which could have included: for planting, water sprinklers, wildlife feeders, habitats and art work. Students should research the current issues to help form and plan their sustainable design.
There was credit given to gardens that utilise plastics creatively and also those that thought about planting to support the environment and wildlife. The designs needed to consider the space limitations by being innovative with height and decoration around the recycled plastic planter.
This year we tried a new style of sports day and it was SO MUCH FUN!
We worked with coaches from Elite Sports and took part in a wide range of activities including traditional sports day races such as sprints, relay, egg and spoon and sack races. We also enjoyed taking part in the new activities, inflatable darts and trying to score in the inflatable target practice.

Today we all took part in a cricket development day run by Lincolnshire Cricket and Chance to Shine as part of All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket.
We had a brilliant time learning about batting and bowling and playing lots of cricket mini games with Justin! You can see some of the pictures from the day below.
We were so excited that it snowed! We loved crunching about it in, sliding and throwing it around.
what an amazing day of celebrations we had at the end of term. We enjoyed a Christmas Lunch all together with our bubbles and a visit from Santa with presents for everyone!

As Anti-Bullying week came to an end, we celebrated odd socks day to raise awareness and to show that we are all different but all belong.
We took part in Boston School Sports Partnership' 1 mile X-Country event and we won the Gold Award! Every class took part in the event running 1 mile around our school field.
Well done everyone!
Today we had an assembly on Teams with Holly and Cooky from Boston United. They talked to us about what bullying is, the different types of bullying, how they don't accept bullying within sport and how to deal with it if it is happening to us or someone we know.
Have a look at the PowerPoint and pictures below!
We've missed our collective praise, so for a special end of term treat, we finally all got together for a socially distanced sing of our favourite worship songs to shine our lights for our community to hear.
This week every class has been taking part in Boston School Sports Programme’s mile cross country event. We had a course marked out around the school field and had to show determination and unity to help us complete the 5 laps. Well done to everyone who took part and help the St Nicholas light to shine brightly during the event!
We celebrated our Harvest Festival in school. Father John led our Collective Worship and, thanks to lots of very generous donations, all classes were able to try lots of local Lincolnshire produce!
