We have enrolled with Juniper Education to review the books nominated for the annual Juniper Book Awards. The children are all encouraged to submit their own reviews once they have read the books. We have been invited to attend the award ceremony, where not only will the winning author be presented with their award, there will also be an award presented to the pupil who has written the best review.
We thoroughly enjoyed our workshop led by Chris Holland, the Didgeridoo man. He fascinated us with the range of sounds he was able to play and enthralled us by recounting some Dreamtime stories. The children were really excited to learn how to play and used some of the sound effects to help retell their own stories.
We were so proud of our Year 6 children who led an emotional service on Remembrance Day. They read poems they had written and laid a wreath and crosses on our memorial. Grace read the Act of Remembrance which was followed by the Last Post played by Mr Wilson. The whole school observed a 2 minute silence and then concluded the service by singing The National Anthem.
We enjoyed our road safety afternoon and learnt the importance of making sure we always stay safe around traffic.
Swallow Class enjoyed serving tea and coffee at our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. They all worked so hard and were very proud to have raised just over £300!
We are looking forward to the year ahead with our new class!
