Today is Children in need day and the school council decided on a dress up day. It has been fantastic to see the children dressed as their favourite story book or film character. We have raised a pleasing contribution to send to Children in Need.
We have been busy this term with fundraising in September we raised over £200 for Macmillan with our annual coffee morning.
We are very proud of the way our children support the good causes we help over the school year.
Our children expertly display our current virtue of Faith filled in the way they look out for and support each other. It continues to be a daily joy to see the way the children will help others who are sad or who have fallen. Taking time from their play to check if they are okay. It's lovely to recieve the children's nominations for Angels of the week when they too have seen this generosity of spirit displayed by others.
Our school choir were fantastic, singing their hearts out at the Young Voices concert at the Genting arena in Birmingham. They had such a long day with a 10pm final drop off, but it did not dampen their spirits and they really enjoyed their experience.
They then visited the local community centre to entertain some of our elder generation with songs and games. They are a real credit to our school and great ambassadors.
Mrs McGrath is busy with the renewal of our science quality mark, she has been spending some time at the way we teach science in our school and how it can be improved. She has lots of activities planned over the next term including some science themed school trips and our termly INSPIRE event. We are looking for donations of shoeboxes with detachable lids, as we are all going to be designing and building our own car, capable of carrying a passenger and travelling in a straight line! Parents I hope you are ready for the challenge!
Our Y/4 football team did well in their tournament despite the heavy hail and rain that the weather threw at us. They were supportive and work well as a team - great prospects for the future of football in the school.
