We have are delighted to be helping as sports leaders each lunchtime with groups from our class supporting the fun being had by each class doing sports activities on the field, lead by a coach.
This half-term's value is responsibility, which happens to be our class value as seen on our lovely new banner in our room. The Ethos Group is being extra vigilant in checking how tidy school is ... so make sure you hang up your coat, put your P.E. bag away and put all books back from where you borrowed them! There might just be a special something for the best class at the end of term...
From now on, the merits given at the end of every half-term will be values focused to show how we are living out what Jesus wants us to do.
A representative from the NSPCC came into school to thank us for our brilliant effort when gaining sponsors for our spellathon. Final total soon...
We have finished our visits to Sandalwood each Friday for this year but hope to invite our friends over in the summer term. The visits have been enjoyed by our children and the residents alike and have lead to a good relationship being built up over many years.
Having tested out our cookery skills in school by baking for Sandalwood and making tasty soup, the class was given a challenge to cook a savoury dish at home during the half-term. There were some amazing dishes made and some great work done as a result of this - over the next couple of weeks each person is going to give a short talk with Powerpoint to explain how their day as a chef went and, importantly, what their customers thought!
Year 6 pupils are allowed, if accompanied by a permission slip from parents, to bring a mobile phone if they travel to and from school without an adult. They, must of course, be switched off when they arrive and be placed in the box in the classroom until they leave.
BANNERS FOR CHURCH
It has become a lovely tradition that Year 6 makes a series of banners for worship in church and presents them as a gift during the school's Easter Service and so we will be busy with this in the next couple of weeks.
All of KS2 goes to church each morning in Holy Week, and this year, in line with our current value of Responsibility, we are using examples from the Bible as our theme. Each child will make a booklet about this which is a very special Easter activity.
On Monday of the last week of term, weather permitting, we will be having our Year 6 led Easter Outside experience, when everyone has the opportunity to visit Easter scenes and respond to what they have learned.
We have been taking part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch and have entered our data, along with half a million others, onto their website. We look forward to seeing the results after lots of number crunching has taken place!
Meanwhile we have new birdfeeders in the Friendship Garden to encourage some more smaller birds to visit it us and we will carry out our survey again after they have been up for a while to note any changes.
