Year 1 Plant Sale: Year 1 classes held a Plant Sale after school in the school hall on 5th July. They have been growing lots of different plants for this event. The Sale was very successful and we will let you know how much was raised. Worle Lions Club kindly donated £200 to St Martin’s, for Year 1 to purchase seeds and pots for this event. All profits raised from the Sale will go towards the sponsorship of a Guide Dog Puppy. Remaining unsold plants will be available to purchase at our Celebration of Learning Event on Tuesday 11th July

Year 1 Educational Visit to @Bristol: During June, Year 1 classes enjoyed a trip to @Bristol. Each class had a workshop about the senses and had the chance to explore all the fantastic exhibits. The coach journey home was a bit warm but the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience and learnt a lot. They also had the chance to share lots of their own learning from this term when they answered questions in the workshop.
Year 1 Plant Sale: On Wednesday 5th July Year One classes will be holding a Plant Sale after school in the school hall. They have been growing lots of different plants for this event and would love as many people as
