Henley Mount Project Day

On Wednesday 2nd November the ‘Mount Project’ came into school to run an activity day for the children who had entered their competition to design a new logo and strip line.

“We walked up the mount to collect nettles, yarrow and dandelions to make yarrow and nettle tea, pressed leaves that we had found, we wrote poems about the mount and then we drew pictures of what we would like on the mount and what materials we would need. I enjoyed the day because it was fun walking over the mount and working as a team.” By Keeley Tomlinson (Year 6)

A short while ago the ‘Mount Project’ came into school for an assembly to talk about the 900 years of history  of the Mount which stands, literally, in the back yard of our school. The speaker was Jonathan Dovey who is the historian of the Mount Project.

Children were then invited by Julie de Bastion and Laura Yarham to enter a competition to design a logo and come up with a strap line for the new Mount Trust website which will be shortly going on line.
