Children in Need
On Friday 17th November the School Council organised a brilliant event that not only celebrated the fantastic talent in our school, but also raised money and showed awareness for such a worthy cause of Children in Need. This was a valuable opportunity for children in all year groups to share a talent on stage and to also give them the confidence to perform in front of an audience. All of the acts were absolutely amazing and so were the children who watched as they were very supportive! There was such a variety of talent including dancing, singing, comedy and mime. We raised an amazing £301.70 so a big well done to everyone involved.
This week each child has used a plastic bottle to make a Poppy. The children then planted them at the front of the school to commemorate Remembrance Sunday. On Friday Year R and KS1 held their two minute silence in front of the poppies.
On Friday 20th October, the children took part in a special assembly to celebrate Poetry. Since National poetry day in September, each class has been learning a poem based on the theme of Freedom and the outcomes were very impressive. Mr. Seal had penned his own poem, which was performed by Mr. Kenward, and children from Years 3, 5 and 6 read poems that they had written on the theme of resilience in PHSE. The assembly culminated in each year group performing their class poems by heart, using wonderful Talk 4 Writing actions and expressive delivery. The whole school did brilliantly to come together and celebrate poetry in such a positive way. We hope you enjoy our poetry recitals!

Gold Award & National Fitness Day
As we celebrate achieving our 3rd Gold kitemark award for sport, the whole school joined in the ’10 at 10′ initiative on Wednesday 27th September. The aim was to have children in 10,000 schools being active for 10 minutes, to highlight the benefits of regular exercise – a healthier heart, increased wellbeing and a better quality of life.
As you can see we had a great time!
