Our Year 4,5,and 6 Wellbeing Club were the first to visit our newly planted orchard. We have apple, quince, plum, pear and cherry trees. They are looking forward to more frequent visits to tidy the raised beds and plant seeds.
We raised an amazing £470 from the sale of Anti-Bullying Week wristbands and rulers which will enable us to make a donation to the Anti-Bullying Alliance charity. Our Eco-warrior Day raised a fantastic £230!
Our School Council voted to support the WWF, The Woodland Trust and to buy a composter and gardening equipment for our allotment. All of our pupils took part in a vote regarding which endangered animals to sponsor.
We greatly appreciate your generosity in helping us to support our chosen charities.
Congratulations to Morning Nursery, YRB, Y1H, Y2E, Y3L, Y4C, Y5J and Y6F.
The winning classes were delighted with their prizes! They received a class cookery book and will choose a healthy recipe from it to bake with Mrs Seales, our Cook. Delicious!
This year as part of Anti-Bullying Week, we decided to hold our own version of The Great British Bake Off. The focus was on sharing, teamwork, and health and wellbeing.
Each year group decided on a healthy dish to make. They enjoyed creating and eating their version of the chosen dish. Our Cook judged each class’s efforts. She was looking for presentation, teamwork and the health benefits of the dish.
Each winning class in the year group will receive a class cookery book from which to choose a healthy recipe to bake with Cook. Results to be announced soon!
Classes from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were treated to an entertaining and interactive assembly by Hannah, a facilitator from Bigfoot Arts Education. The assembly and workshops were on an anti-bullying theme and called ‘It’s Good to be Me’.
Key Stage 2 classes also had an assembly and workshops on the theme of diversity and respecting others called ‘The Bigger Picture 2’. The assembly featured four monologues featuring four different characters experiencing racism, cyberbullying, or inequality of some kind.
We celebrated with all of our Anti-Bullying Week and Eco-warrior Day competition winners in assembly today. The entries throughout the whole school were of a very high standard. Well done everyone! All competition winners went home with a fantastic book linked to the theme of the competition.
Nursery and Reception classes were treated to Teamwork and Friendship workshops by Jessica from Dance City on Wednesday. The children were having a super time finding out similarities and differences between them, and worked as a team to help other groups decide what they were posing as.
