Summer Term 2021 - India fundraising - thank you everyone

 

Stephen - My brothers and I were worried when we heard about the situation in India, with Covid 19.

We told the School Council all about it.

 

Our School Council decided to run some cake stalls to raise funds to help people in India.

 

We held the first one for Year 3 and Year 4. It went VERY well.

 

The following week we held one for Year 5 and Year 6. It was brilliant.

 

After these two we had a cake stall for Years 1 and 2. It was fantastic.

 

Early Years and Reception enjoyed lovely cakes too.

 

Thanks very much to Stephen, Riley and James for telling us all about the problems in India.

 

Thanks very much to everyone for the donating cakes for these cake stalls.

 

Thanks very much to everyone who brought in money to buy cakes at the cake stalls.

 

We raised over £230 for this worthy cause.

 

School Council- Anti-Bullying Day- March 2021

As part of our anti-bullying day, we have been helping our children to define, recognise and understand how racism affects people’s lives. The school council have worked incredibly hard to raise awareness of our shared responsibility to stand up and speak out against racism and the importance of treating each other with kindness. They have also worked with teachers throughout school to ensure that our curriculum is representative of black history, with opportunities to celebrate diversity and difference. In preparation for our celebration assembly, this dedicated team have produced a powerful video to share with children across school.

In September, new members were elected to our School Council.

In Year 3 the classes voted for Isla and Belle.

In Year 4 the classes voted for Daisy, Zoe and Megan.

Year 5 have elected Zain, Oscar and James.

Year 6 have elected Andrew, Leena and Leon.

Many congratulations to them!

At the moment we are putting together a set of ways in which classes can share things that they feel grateful for. 

This is our Weekly Thankful Diary that we have designed, for each class to complete as a team.

Our School Council worked very hard in February 2020.

We put together an amazing joke leaflet.

The jokes are all about sport, and the money that we have raised has gone to Sport Relief.

The jokes were put on our School Story - one for every day, as a 'Joke of the Day!'

Our school community enjoyed reading and sharing these while our school was closed.
