Growing sunflowers to #plantsomesunshine

Are you growing sunflowers this spring and summer? We have planted some sunflower seeds and they are now growing on a window sill. This means they can be watered easily, whilst getting plenty of sunlight. We will move the flowers to the garden as soon as they are big enough to plant outside. Every year we plant sunflowers, alongside planting our vegetable patch as it always brings us such joy. We love the fact that the sunflowers look like giant sunshines, attract the bees and give the birds some seeds to eat in the autumn. We also love all the different varieties of sunflowers we grow but find the giant ones most fun to grow. This year during the global pandemic of Covid-19 we believe our sunflowers will really give us hope - something to watch grow and nurture throughout the war...

Chinese New Year, Maidenhead Celebrate – The Year of The Rat

A couple of years ago we experienced the Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead which marked the Year of the Dog. The sun shone as the Chinese Dragons danced their way down the high street after starting the procession with firecrackers, drums and dancing. There was a great atmosphere in the town as the Chinese Dragons, a symbol of China, which are believed to bring good luck to people, made their way along the procession route - it was fantastic to watch. This year, 2020, marks The Year of the Rat and Maidenhead celebrate again on Saturday 25th January 2020, 1pm - 2pm. The Eagle Claw Kung Fu School UK will again perform their traditional dragon and lion dance. The dragon dance will make its way down Maidenhead High Street from The Boy and the Boat statue at the top of the High St...

AD – Gifted // Henley Literary Festival 2019

It has been great to be gifted tickets to Henley Literary Festival again this year. The first event I went to was on the evening of the opening Saturday where I watched authors Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum and Matt Coney, Dad vs Baby being interviewed by Steph Douglas, mother of three and founder of Don’t Buy Her Flowers. The evenings interview discussed the authors experiences of parenthood and was full of honesty and laughter. I have followed The Unmumsy Mum for a long time on Instagram and it was great to see her talk in person. The session concluded with a Q&A and after the event finished I bought myself Sarah Turner's new book ‘The Unmumsy Mum A-Z - An Inexpert Guide to Parenting’ in the Festival Hub.  Then in the morning we headed back to Henley-on-Thames to tak

Upton House gains Plastic Free School Status

Thanks to a monumental effort by the pupil-led Single-Use Plastics Free Alternatives (SUPA) Committee, Upton House School is proud to be the first school in Berkshire to receive official Plastic Free School Status accreditation by the national Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) organisation – and all within a remarkably short time.  Comprising a team of dedicated young pupils from years 4 to 6, who have worked tirelessly to achieve their aim of a plastics-free school environment, Upton’s SUPA Committee began as part of the school’s enrichment programme for more-able pupils whose research revealed the devastating effects of plastic in our environment. It has rapidly gathered pace as other pupils and members of staff have felt compelled to join the all-encompassing, highly charged ca
