On Friday 9th October we all came to school dressed in Yellow as part of the #HelloYellow day for the Young Minds Charity
Year 5/6 Inter-Phase Dodgeball Tournament
We raised £375 for the charity
"HERE WE ARE"
We have been working on a whole school project based around the book, "Here We Are." The children have enjoyed this project very much. Here is a selection of their work that is proudly on display around the school and in classrooms.
We are overwhelmed by the number of food donations which we have received at school this week for the local food bank– thank you.
I am sure this is going to make a huge difference to lots of families across our town.
Food Bank Donations
Last week, staff chose one child in each class to become a Reading Ambassador. The children had their first (socially distanced) meeting on Friday where they were given their special badges and told about some of their duties. These include encouraging others in the class to love reading as much as they do by giving book recommendations, ensuring children keep the book shelves tidy when choosing a new book and attending half termly meetings to discuss reading in their class. The children were all very enthusiastic and I look forward to our next meeting!
Our Pupil council have been meeting this term, these meetings are the highlight of my week. The enthusiasm and confidence that the council members display is infectious and they are huge ambassadors of our school. They have provided some great feedback about our return to school. After half term Mrs Playle is joining our meeting to talk about Art in our school.
Lid to Art
You will remember that early last academic year Mrs Playle (our Art leader) ran a competition across the school ‘ Lid to Art’ to promote recycling plastic. I am delighted to say that the winning design was created during last term and now takes pride of place in our large hall.
African Drumming Workshop
Classes took part in a range of activities throughout the day and each class took part in a 2 minute silence in their own classroom. We held a whole school Zoom assembly in the afternoon to talk about the history of Poppies and why Remembrance Day is important.
We watched this video together:
