Whole School Learning

Compliment Treat

As part of our Positive Behaviour Policy children can earn compliments from the staff in school if they show they are living out our School Values. The class with the most compliments each half term have won a treat of ‘Cakes and Shakes’ which they have enjoyed. This last half term the children have worked as a school to try to get 300 compliment for a whole school end of year treat. The children have worked hard to live out our school values and we have seen lots of courteous and friendly behaviours around school. After watching Aladdin altogether in the hall we had a visit from an Ice- Cream van- we all enjoyed sitting in the sun with a cornet- well done to everyone for working a s a team to gain 478 compliments altogether.

Sports Week

What a wonderful week of sports we have had! The children have been involved in lots of different sports from the pentathlon to boccia, earning points for their teams. Children were put in mixed aged teams from Morocco, Portugal, Mexico Argentina & Australia and each team formed part of our Opening Ceremony procession around the field, bearing the flags of their teams. The children have also been developing their Geography skills focusing on the different countries and where they are! This culminated in our Sports Week Finale (Races) & Closing Ceremony today. Thanks to all the parents, carers and families that came along this morning to support the teams & cheer on the children! The teams were presented with their certificates by Councillor Billy Sheerin during Praise assembly this afternoon. We are pleased to announce that the WINNING TEAM IS PORTUGAL!!!! Well done everyone!!!

Visit from Bishop Mark- focusing on his clothes

Bishop Mark paid us a special visit to School! He met with all the children some Governors and some of our parents as he lead our collective worship in our weekly praise assembly. He explained to the children what each item of his special Bishop clothing meant. The children sat and listened in awe to the Bishop.

He asked the children- What is my hat shaped like this for? He did not expect to get the correct answer so said that I, the staff, governors and parents would all do cartwheels if anyone got the right answer! Grayson said- Is it because we all love each other? The Bishop thought this was the nicest answer he had ever heard. Sasha got it totally right though- Is it to represent the Holy Spirit pointing up to God? The Bishop was blown away. Fortunately he told the children that cartwheels are banned in schools on Fridays- phew!
