Ramsey Food Bank

Food banks often experience increased demand for their services over the summer holidays. If you are able to make a donation there is always a collection point available at Ramsey Tesco. If you or someone you know is experiencing difficulty over the summer, food bank vouchers can be obtained through the Children's Centre (located in Ramsey Library, open Tuesdays and Fridays 9am-4.30pm) or through your health visitor. Please make use of this service if you need to. You can always donate back in to it at a later date. For further information please follow the link https://ramsey.foodbank.org.uk/

Animal Experts

skink.JPGThe After School Club children recently enjoyed a very exciting and interesting visit from Mitch of Animal Experience and some of his collection. Below is a report of the visit by our resident animal expert, John. 

 

Expert John talks about animals

 

Mitch came to see us....

 

A royal python only eats twice a year.

 

On a bearded dragon the bit that looks spiky is actually smooth and the bit that looks like it’s smooth is actually spiky.

 

A milk snake is copying a very dangerous snake called a boa constrictor.

 

A blue tongued skink does look like a poisonous animal but it is not and it is slimy.

 

A barn owl, well you have guessed it, it flies and it has black eyes, claws, white feathers and it looks cute.

 

Meerkats eat snakes.

 

With tarantulas the girls eat the boys and the girls are much faster than the boys.

Comic Relief

Comic Relief - wear something funny for money. The children at Upwood Primary School are 'wearing something funny for money' to raise funds for Comic Relief this Friday. If any of the pre-school children also want to dress up in something silly on Friday they are very welcome too. However, because the rules governing charities raising money for other charities are a bit complicated, we won't be collecting donations. Please feel free to either make a personal donation to comic relief or, if you have an older child at the primary school, maybe donate a bit extra through them.

butterflies.jpgJust as the children have enjoyed watching their butterflies grow, develop and fly away this term so have we enjoyed watching the children grow and develop while they have been with us. Although we are very sad to see some of them leave, we are very proud of the young people they are growing into and we wish them well as they spread their wings and fly.
