Today we welcomed 4 staff from the NSPCC to our school. As well as leading a whole school assembly about staying safe, these volunteers also provided active workshops for our Year 5 and 6 pupils. All other pupils had a special session centred around ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ within their classes.
Our School Council had already agreed to set up and run a huge obstacle course for the children to be sponsored to complete. We’re happy to say that every child completed this course during the day so the children can start to claim their sponsorship money before handing it in to their class teacher. All proceeds go directly to the charity.
Many thanks to all of the parents who joined in with our children to make thumb pots this afternoon. The results were really impressive!
Our Christmas jumper day and bake sale raised £657 for Save The Children UK. Well done to the school council and Miss Sheard for their organisation of the event and many thanks to all those who took part.
This morning’s service at St. Francis of Assisi Church brought together the community at this special time of year. We shared Christmas songs and readings and enjoyed a wonderful talk from Reverend Jenny.
Merry Christmas to all and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in the new year.
The performances over the last two days were fantastic. All of the children sung and performed with enthusiasm, confidence and pride. Many thanks to everyone for their support and hard work in enabling such a superb event to occur, it is always wonderful to bring the whole community together at Christmas time.
On Friday the Year 6 pupils visited the Tank Museum in relation to their World War II topic. As well as viewing a variety of tanks and visiting the trenches experience, pupils also participated in workshops about the Blitz, the home front, evacuation and D-day.
Our PTA have done an amazing job of preparing the Christmas hampers this morning. Each class have two hampers to win. Raffle tickets were distributed last week and the draw for the hampers will be held on Monday in each class. All proceeds go towards resourcing for our school.
