Anti- Bullying Week and Positive Well-being

Autumn 1


Autumn 1 was  a busy term with many different activities.  One of the things we did was a Junior First Aid course provided by St.John's Ambulance. The children enjoyed learning about real life examples and having practical opportunities to learn the recovery position and bandage a small bleed.


To celebrate the end of their Big Write topic  of Superheros they enjoyed a great morning of superhero fun at the end of October.  As superheros they had written diaries, interviews, newspaper articles as well as inventing their own superheroes.   They have been real superheroes!!


We are really proud of the Rainforest projects the children completed for their homework in Autumn 1.  Our classrooms were filled with beautiful displays which many others commented on and appreciated viewing as they walked through.  All the children put in a great effort.


Autumn 2


Autumn 2 has been full of lots of different learning and opportunities!


The Lion class prepared a class worship on Remembrance Day. They learned a poem and a beautiful song and each child took a part in the afternoon, whether through a speaking part or lighting a candle. Thank you to all the parents who came along - it was great to have such a full hall!


As part of our rainforest topic we created a tribal dwelling out of clay, straw and paper. Each pupil spent several afternoons designing and creating their hut. The final results looked excellent!


We had a wonderful visit from Richard from Reptile Roadshow. He brought many different rainforest animals for us to look at and even touch! The children enjoyed meeting lizards, snakes, a scorpion, a chinchilla, a cockroach and a millipede.



December has been a very busy month with lots of different things going on to prepare for Christmas.

We had a school Christmas lunch where the children prepared christmas hats. We decorated them with colour, glitter and sequins!

We have enjoyed watching the infant nativities, and the upper school carols and readings rehearsals.

We made a class advent calendar and under each door was a kind act for the day.

We also made christingles and we learned the different meaning of each individual part.
