Baby Hats

Cathryn has recently be knitting baby hats for the neo-natal unit at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Staff at the hospital were very grateful for them as they are always useful to keep the premature babies warm.

Art

In Art we have carried on the sweet theme. Using various media including paint, collage, clay, sewing and batik, pupils have created cupcakes, sundaes and ice creams in the style of Wayne Thiebaud to create a display that looks good enough to eat!

Hospital school pupils continue to contribute to our values, visions and aims by giving their opinion on 'Maple is a place where.....' This vase is displayed within the hospital school as well as the Balby site.

Xmas Light Switch On

Yesterday Jane Morgan, assistant Head from the hospital school, Judith Owen, teacher and Jill Edwards, Play and Activity leader, attended the Christmas light switch on with pupils from Park Primary school. We went to Mallard Ward and the Frailty Ward to sing carols and spread some much appreciated Christmas cheer.
