Reception Remember

Teaching our children about the significance of Remembrance Day and why people wear a poppy is not always an easy thing to do.
Today in class we watched a short animation produced by CBeebies. It is simply entitled ‘Poppies’ and helps to convey the notion of remembrance in a way that would resonate with a young audience.
After watching this we decided to make our own poppies to help us remember. Later in the day we took our poppies to the prayer wall in our prayer garden and placed a painted stone on the poppy made by all our friends in school.

Liam and Chloe Foundation

Today the School Council have embarked on a mission to help a newly established trust to raise funds. We are supporting the Together Forever Trust. The trust has been set up in memory of Liam Curry and Chloe Rutherford. The aims of the trust are to help children achieve their dreams and reach their full potential in sport and performance. From tomorrow the School Council will be selling wristbands at a cost of £1.00. The bands will also be available from Mrs Hawkins in Y1 after school if any parents would like to pop in and purchase adult or child size wristbands too.

The children are committed to supporting this cause and are very enthusiastic about raising as much as we can to help the trust over the months ahead.

The children from the School Council are designing a poster to advertise the wristbands so watch out for it over the next few days.

Thank you for continued support.

Who has been eating all my porridge?

Yesterday, the three bears left us a note and some ingredients. They loved the porridge we made them so much they asked us to investigate what else we could make with porridge oats. Luckily, Mrs Coyne knew a perfect recipe that used all the ingredients we were given. If you’re lucky, your child might let you share the delicious treat they are bringing home today!

International Languages

Last week, Nursery had a great time participating in International Languages Day. We learnt how to say hello and goodbye in Punjabi, we did some Spanish dancing and learnt about a Spanish artist, we learnt our colours in German and tasted some Mexican food! In the afternoon we had a special treat, one of our parents came in and cooked some Chinese food with us!
