No Mow May


No Mow May is a movement started by the charity Plantlife. It encourages people to let their lawn (or part of their lawn) grow long in the month of May, so flowers can flower, and in the process, helping all kinds of pollinators and other mammals, birds and amphibians that feed on them.


Wild Amersham @ Sustainable Amersham is encouraging as many people in Amersham to take part in #NoMowAmersham this year. Let’s try and create a chain of mini-meadows in our town this May. There’s lots of ideas on the Plantlife website, including ID guides, tips for looking after a longer lawn, and colouring pages for children. Register your lawn with Plantlife here. Let us know you are taking part by filling out this short form so we can track how it’s all going. Find activities for your children here. If you’d like to know what plant you are looking at, email us. Or come to one of our wildflower walks during May. Book her for the walk on the 12th of May or 17th of May.


And if you can, post any photos of your flowering lawn on social media under



Let’s see if we can turn Amersham into a flowering nature corridor of mini meadows, for plants, for insects, for nature, for us. 

Science Week

This year’s Science Week took place 8th March until 17th and the theme was “Time”. There were varied activities taking place across the school including:


Every class took part in a carousel of hands on practical science activities.

Dr Challoner’s Grammar school students visited year 5/6 to investigate: magnetic properties, effect of exercise on heart rate and exploring chemical reactions to make slime.

As part of British Science Week 2024, we held our own poster competition across KS1 and KS2 and the winners received Science books as prizes. The best entries were also entered into the national competition.



Mrs Reynolds, a parent of a child in year 4, visited all of KS2 to share more about her career as a physiotherapist.

Our school took part in “The Big Plastic Count” which focused on collecting data about plastic use and recycling in our homes. This information was collected Nationwide by Greenpeace in order to persuade the government to act on reducing plastic use and waste. Two of our school councillors, Lottie and Alfie, were invited to Parliament to state the case to MPs.

Although our science show didn’t happen as planned, it has been rescheduled for Friday 24th May.
