At St Mark’s, we enjoy engaging with our community through serving them. At different points this year, each year group has chosen how they want to serve others through an act of kindness – the video below is the result! We’ll keep at it in the future, too.
Music track is ‘Do Something’ by Matthew West
The St Marks Wildlife After School Club has had a busy springtime, discovering minibeasts, creating nesting rings and feeders for the birds, using natural materials such as sticks to make stick-people and lanterns and undertook a woodworking challenge to create a hibernation box for a hedgehog, spanning several weeks. The children persevered screwing in every single screw themselves and choose a wonderful quiet spot on the school site to place the box ready for autumn. The After School Club aims to give the children an opportunity to learn and discover about wildlife on their doorstep, spending as much time as possible outside exploring. The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust’s Outdoor Leader, Kate Barrett, has really enjoyed running the After School Club along with volunteers and is looking forward to a busy summer programme!
