Yesterday’s toy swap raised over £330 for the Save the Children Fund. Many thanks to all who contributed but especially to our School Council and Miss Sheard who organised the event.
A huge thank you to our parents and volunteers who have been helping Year Four pupils learn about staying safe around roads. They have practically guided our children with care and attention and the support is very much appreciated.
Many thanks for the many donations that we have received for our charity toy swap. This event was was organised by the school council to raise money for the ‘Save the Children’ charity.
The toy shop will be visited by the children over the course of tomorrow. Each toy can be bought for £1 and all proceeds will go straight to the Save The Children charity.
We welcome further toy donations tomorrow morning!
We have had the pleasure of welcoming the Life Education team this week. The children responded brilliantly to these sessions, engaging in the activities provided and discussing key themes thoughtfully. Year 3 ‘met the brain’, Year 4’s theme was ‘It’s Great To Be Me’, Year 5’s sessions centred around friendship and Year 6’s topic was ‘Decisions’.
Our remembrance garden was officially opened this week. This garden is not only to remember the fallen from conflicts but also to provide a quiet area for reflection and respect for those who have experienced personal losses.
Today’s timetable in all classes centred about learning about World War One. Pupils in different years discovered a variety of information, such as how war broke out and stories of specific individuals and events. The children also created a wide variety of poppy themed art.
Mr Moore has created a memorial garden onsite. This will serve not only as a memorial for remembrance but also as a place for quiet reflection for the pupils.
Some of our Year 6s are doing a fantastic job at lunch time selling poppies and other items for the British Legion. There are still items of stationary, some bands and poppies for sale should children wish to purchase this week.
