Celebrating 100 years of Armistice

Our children sat in their 'red white and blue' having 2 minutes silence to remember those who have fought in World War 1 and 2 and those still fighting for our country today. Our music teacher, Mrs Forshaw also played 'The Last Post' as a very moving tribute towards our Remembrance Day.

All classes produced some stunning pieces of work which they shared in a celebration assembly at the end of the day. The beautiful poppy artwork displayed along our fences has been admired by all as they enter the school.

Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival was a great success and a wonderful showcase of creative learning. All year groups, student council members and rights respecting citizens took part, sharing facts and information about those less fortunate, artwork based on learning about food, poetry and prayers and a variety of different Harvest songs they have learned with our WPT music specialist Mrs Forshaw. Our new choir also performed for the first time this year too.

Many thanks to the parents who were able to celebrate and support the children. We had a great turn out - it was lovely to see the church so full. On behalf of the rights respecting team, thank you to all who contributed towards the foodbank. The Salvation Army were delighted to receive this from the children and it will greatly help families in our community.

Our Y6 thoroughly enjoyed a rafting opportunity provided through WPT sports provision. They worked effectively in teams, building and sailing their own rafts.

Learning how to keep safe in the 'Big Wide World' by practising being responsible citizens at Crucial Crew.
