Team Around Project is a way of including the whole school in big school projects. At Heron Dale, we have many team around including team around Christmas, team around the playground, team around playtime, team around indoor environments, team around forest schools, team around performing arts and many more. Here you can find out more information about each team around, we will try and update each term.
Team Around Playtime have been meeting and discussing how to make playtime exciting, safe and fun. We have three different playgrounds that are set up for different experiences for the children to enjoy. Recently new playground artwork has been put in place to provide alternative play options for pupil.
Team Around IT meet once a term to discuss different issues with respect to ICT around the school. We are extremely lucky to have Matthew Ford from TC-IT Services joining us on this team around. Technology is becoming more and more essential in our school environment and TAIT have helped us to ensure that we have up to date systems in place. Part of this has involved updating security policies, upgrading networked systems while also looking at ways of modernising our current systems and infrastructure. We are always on the look for new monitors, mice and keyboards - if you can help please let us know.
We have identified an area in the school to create a ‘nature hub ’with pond, sensory planting, raised beds/other ways of growing flowers, vegetables and herbs etc. This is extremely exciting and could work alongside our Beach and Forest school projects! Again if you can helping please do get in contact with the school office.
