School report: Mining lesson from Papa

 This week we have had many different activities, reports Madam Sarah.
 After school, our students were practising their athletics with sports teacher Mr Steve was in charge. 
They were running as fast as their legs could carry them hoping to make it to a  better level  and to  make Hayward’s Happy House School proud.
The weather was the subject for a painting session with playgroup and kg 1. the weather is  in the syllabus this term and learning about different types of weather and making pictures helps the children to understand and remember what they are learning.
Papa Dave came in to school talk about mining in the classes 6, 7 and 8. 
Papa, who worked as a coal miner when it was a young man, explained more about advantages of mining and he came with learning materials for them to understand more.
It was an interesting lesson and much enjoyed.
