December report

£197 was collected on school council’s CHILDREN IN NEED pyjama day-wow well done everybody. School Council did a great job of rapidly responding to their school’s requests and managed to put out lots of posters and letters in a very short time so you can be rightly proud of the amount you’ve raised to go to a very worthwhile cause.

NATIONAL ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN

At the end of November we joined many schools across the country, in the national anti-bullying campaign. It’s slogan STOP AND THINK – words can hurt, has been used for discussions about name calling, labelling and celebrating differences in all classes all this week. Today we wore labels to assembly which celebrated each person’s positive attribute. As part of this campaign a parents guide to bullying will accompany todays newsletter, which we hope you will find informative. All teachers have been very pleased with the reflective contributions children have made.

Latest Projects

Year 5  have been doing a pirate treasure hunt. We have worked out Semaphore flag signals , Caesar’s letter cipher , Morse codes and Orienteering all morning. Each activity led us to a different clue – a key, a map, a cordinate or a spade. In the afternoon we had to use these to find the treasure and for some groups it was very hard.  The treasure was some chocolate coins,but after we ate the treasure the pirate day ended .

Year 4 have been creating film sets in shoe boxes for their film making using plastcine.

Year 5 have been writing sea shanties using ‘Haul away Joe’ as a basis for their shanty writing.

Year 3 have been police archaeologists, trying to use evidence to prove it really was a king buried at Sutton Hoo.
