This week Catkins Class have been very curious about somebody called "Onion - King of the Fairies". Onion lives in our school woods so on Wednesday when we went up to our woods for our Woodland Wednesday session we were expecting to meet him.
Unfortunately he was nowhere to be seen. This lead to lots of excited conversations about where he had gone. Some of us noticed that there was lots of litter in the woods so we decided that that must be why Onion had left the woods.
The next day we received a letter from Onion himself confirming that he had left his beautiful woods because it was so full of rubbish. The children were desperate to help persuade Onion to move back so spent another afternoon in the woods litter picking - we found two whole bin bags full! Other children found a broken house they believed to be Onion's home so spent the afternoon fixing and decorating it while others drew Onion pictures and wrote him letters asking him to come back, explaining what we were doing to help him.
This afternoon Mr Foard our super duper Site Manager came to help us fix the house properly with some real tools. All of the children listened carefully to Mr Foard's safety instructions and made an excellent job of fixing Onion's home! Hopefully he will move back next week so we can finally meet him!
