Met Mark

Atwood’s Weather Station was set up in September 2018, aimed at increasing the children’s understanding of the weather by taking accurate readings and making weather observations.  Miss Hardy, our Science Leader, has been working very hard to collate evidence of children’s scientific enquiry in order for Atwood to be awarded the Met Mark.  We found out on Monday 10th June 2019 that we have been awarded the Met Mark.  Dr. Sylvia Knight, Head of Education from the Royal Meteorological Society, said, ‘I think Atwood’s was possibly the strongest application I have seen; what a great collection of activities!’

To be awarded the Met Mark is a great achievement for the children and to find out on a day of terrific low pressure which caused non-stop rain was certainly memorable! We had so much rain that the children had to carry out some maintenance on our makeshift rain gauge.  This was because we had more than 500ml of rain in a day which was too much for the measuring jug!  We have upgraded the jug to 1000ml just in case.  Thanks go to Miss Hardy for her hard work and also to the Friends of Atwood Primary who funded the equipment.

Dads’ Breakfast

On Monday 20th November we are holding a fun breakfast session for dads and male relatives/carers. Drop off your child and sign in at the office, then make your way to the Junior Hall. Your child will join you after registration for breakfast and games. The session should last around an hour, and was a great success last time. If you would like to attend on Monday, please could you let Miss Colbron know by emailing hcolbron.306@lgflmail.org
