The whole school took part in a history week to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. During the week the children took part in a WW1 Workshop where they learnt about life as a soldier in the trenches. Each class made clay poppies and doves for a poppy memorial garden display. Other activities included visiting the war memorial in Eastcombe, a WW1 themed school day and a victory tea party. The week culminated in an exhibition of children’s work in the school hall and open classrooms to share their learning with friends and relatives. The whole week was extremely successful and a great experience for the children.

At the end of a very busy SATs week, Year 6 voted for the fundraising activity they would like to do to raise money for this year’s Cathedral Leavers’ Service charity – ‘Seriously Awkward’. The children chose to spend the day in their pyjamas and raised £40 which will be donated when we attend our service at the cathedral in June.
Before meeting with Mr Ferguson, David Drew MP met with the fantastic leaders of our School Parliament. Later during his visit, he held a questions and answers slot with the Year 5 and 6 ministry members. (See the School Parliament tab for more photographs)

On Sunday 22nd April, Mrs Trim (Hospice UK) & Mrs Hale (MacMillan Cancer) will be running the London Marathon for these fantastic charities.
Mrs Hale was lucky enough to get a ballot place, however Mrs Trim has a charity place and is therefore fundraising! If you would like to make a donation please visit her JustGiving page here. We will also have donation boxes in the office for both charities if you wish to give in this way.
We wish them all the best in the last few weeks of their training and good luck for the race!
Many thanks for all your support.
During half term, Mrs Barwell, Mrs Hale and I went out to Kenya to visit Shamanei Primary School who we have been linked with since 2015.
We taught a number of lessons including Wake and Shake, Parachute Games and sessions based around Critical Thinking. Both schools are now committing to a three year project looking at:
- – Digital Literacy
- – Citizenship
- – Critical Thinking
We are looking forward to maintaining this highly successful partnership.
