Our school signed up Pro Sport challenge of running a total of 50K in a week. We'd agreed that every child would try to run half a KM to ensure our total was at least 50K. Our nursery and reception children rose to the challenge, with every child smiling and laughing as they ran 10 times around the playground on Friday morning.
KS1 spent the morning making space scenes to support our story writing.
The whole school were making Christmas crafts to decorate the hall and for Mary's Meals
In addition to Anti-bullying week, last week was also National Road Safety week. Our newly painted road markings couldn't have come at a better time and we were very lucky that Holly was able to come to talk to the EYFS children about keeping safe when crossing even the smallest of roads. As well as working at our school, Holly works as a lollipop lady, so she came along with her shortened lollipop stick and her bright jacket to demonstrate safe road crossing. The children enjoyed taking turns to be the lollipop man/lady and being mums/dads and children crossing the road. Thanks Holly!
Last week was anti-bullying week, when every class in school gave an extra focus in their lessons to thinking about how we can try to ensure that every person in school feels safe, happy and valued. We painted matching and odd socks, made a friendship promise on a jigsaw piece to help us understand that if we all work together then we can help to prevent bullying, painted pictures of every child in the class to show that we are all different and that we are all friends. Friday was the highlight of the week, with our odd socks day! For the first time since the beginning of term it was too wet to go outside for assembly, but we enjoyed watching Mrs Bailey's recorded assembly instead.
Today we wore our odd socks to show that we are all different....even our socks but this is something that we celebrate. KS1 assembly was recorded and classes watched it on their whiteboards as it was too wet to hold our assembly outdoors. (Avaliable to KS1 on Teams)
What a rainbow of colours we had on Friday for Children in Need day, which this year coincided with World Kindness Day. The day began with year 5 children's assembly as they showed us how kind deeds and words brought joyful colour into the lives of others.
The EYFS children have been doing lots of measuring this week and thoroughly enjoyed ordering strips of coloured paper by length until they had made a rainbow.
On Wednesday KS1 children gathered in the school hall for an act of Remembrance. They each laid their poppy wreaths around our soldier and then stood in silence for 2 minutes at 11 am. At the end of the silence the class listened to the "Last Post" and said The Lord's Prayer.
