10.6.22 Forest School
It is lovely to see the seasons change and the amount of growth we have had recently with so much sunshine and rain.
We have been busy building a natural dome which will turn green as more foliage takes over.
3.6.22 Coppice children meet Prince William!
Children at Coppice Primary School and William Torbiit got the royal seal of approval during the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. They met Prince William, Duke of Cambridge due to their involvement in planting the final trees in The Tree of Trees - they were the only two schools involved in the Tree of Tree project - what an honour!
Due to our children taking part in The Junior Forester Award (details linked below) they were invited along to Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 24th May. They were the only two schools involved in planting the final trees in The Tree of Trees. The Tree of Trees is an enormous sculpture designed by Thomas Heatherwick to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The individual trees will be given to community projects around the country when the Tree of Trees is dismantled.
Whilst they were doing the planting by Buckingham Palace, they were interviewed by Blue Peter Presenter, Mwaksy Mudenda, and given green Blue Peter badges. Green badges are awarded when children show how much they care about nature, the environment and sustainability.
The children were then invited back to Buckingham Palace on Thursday 2nd June to watch as the lights on the Tree of Trees were lit. It was the principal beacon lit and signalled the start of the Jubilee celebrations and the lighting of over 3000 beacons nationally and internationally. The lighting of the tree was televised around the world and shown on ITV, BBC, Sky News and The Royal Family YouTube channel (link below).
Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge met and spoke with the children. He asked them about the kinds of trees they planted and whether they enjoy being out in nature. Some of them were a little star struck but spoke about the hundreds of trees planted at Coppice and William Tobitt this year.
On Friday 3rd June, the children were featured in a Jubilee special edition of Blue Peter (link below).
It has been fantastic for the children to have their tree-planting, eco-minded efforts recognised in such an important way. What an honour and what an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The Jubilee celebrations continue this week following half term. They hope to make use of left-over bunting and decorations to save them from going into landfill following local celebrations last week and host their own Jubilee picnic on Tuesday 7th June.

It is lovely to see the wider talents of our children. Well done to this pair who have managed to learn this piece on the piano.
Special Ladies' Day
Our Parent Teacher Fundraising Group is made up of staff and parents who give up their time to raise funds for our school.
The 'pick a present' event allows children to experience giving and showing their love and appreciation for special people in their lives. Ahead of Mother's Day, 'special ladies' was the theme.
If you are able to, please contact the school office to put down your name for supporting the PTFG in future events.
A big heartfelt thank you to our PTFG who raised an amazing £427.49 for future spending on Coppice children.

Thank you to Kym and Chloe who organised our Christmas Fair and raised over £900 for future events for the children. There was Santa's Grotto, mince pies, mulled wine, face-painting, a special visit from Tootsie the Elf, personalised baubles, tombola, lucky dip, a raffle, glitter tattoos and more!
29.11.21: Planting our orchard
Children at Coppice Primary School had an exciting day planting their new orchard on a chilly Monday, November 29th. Coppice is one of 10 schools in Redbridge planting 98 new trees this year. Woodbridge High School was the first school this year to receive their trees and 7 students from Woodbridge High School came to help at Coppice’s tree planting day which helps build links across the community.
Using Redbridge Council’s Green Urban Landscape Policy to increase the borough’s tree population and money provided by the Community Infrastructure Levy (money from developers which is put towards neighbourhood schemes), Coppice was fortunate enough to extend their nature garden by planting a whole orchard of apple, pear and plum trees. They also planted a native hedgerow which will attract bees and insects. Using daffodils from the Spring Bulb Giveaway (which ended in October) the children also got to plant some bulbs which will grow in the spring. The trees will be registered as part of those being planted for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
The aim is for Edward Johnson and Peter Marshall from Council’s tree section to come back next year and teach the children how to prune the fruit trees and learn about growing their own food. Marion Moth and Beth Matison (Neighbourhood Engagement Officers) hope to work more with the children from the Coppice Primary School Eco Team to tackle areas such as recycling, composting and litter picking.
Did you know that you can adopt a tree outside of your house, register it and you will be given a label for it and sent some seeds to plant. The scheme officially ended on 30th November but we have been told you can still apply. Click below.
21.10.21: 'Reach' dance routine with Pioneer Dance
Today we filmed our whole school dance routine to Reach by S Club 7. Pioneer Dance worked with us to learn the routine and the children have practised hard in school, and at home, in preparation.
We had a great time being together, feeling connected and having FUN! What a fabulous way to end a fabulous half term.

5.10.21: Headteacher's Award Ceremony
Well done to all of the children who were awarded their special badges and certificates in recognition of their hard work last academic year. They were invited in with their parents to see each other's projects and have a special breakfast. The rest of the school were invited to see all of the projects class by class throughout the day and it was lovely to witness their reactions as they were blown away by their peers' efforts.
27.9.21: Headteacher Award Projects
At Coppice we celebrate outstanding work efforts with gold stars on a class chart.
Each child works towards completing their chart and they get rewarded with a yellow star badge for 10 outstanding pieces of work, a red badge for 20, a blue badge for 30, a silver badge for 40 and a gold badge for 50 outstanding pieces of work.
At the end of the summer term, the children who receive 50 stars are invited to submit a self-chosen project to receive the Head Teacher’s Award. They are invited to a special ceremony with their family to receive the award.
This year’s ceremony will take place on Tuesday 5th October. Below are some of the amazing projects - every single submission was incredible.
