Year 4 have completely amazed us with their homework this week. They were asked to investigate Anglo Saxon houses and villages and to then get creative and make a model house to show what they had learned. We were delighted to see an amazing array of houses and we are really impressed with how imaginatively they have used different materials to make their models. Fabulous effort Year 4!
A massive THANK YOU to all staff, parents and The Fakenham Area Conservation Team who helped to clear the pond area again.
What amazing team work, ALL our children will benefit from it so much.
This week is Anti-Bullying week. Today we have looked at why we are unique, we thought about odd socks, why children had chosen their particular ones today. We then thought about showing the right attitudes to avoid bullying taking place. The children said that we need to be showing compassion, kindness, forgiveness, friendship and responsibility to name but a few. We now have a line of odd socks to remind us of our ideas, luckily not the smelly variety!
A few of the children and staff joined the school to represent the nursery at the Remembrance day service, which was held at All Saints Church Stibbard. After the service they laid a special cross on the memorial, they had made at the nursery.
Don’t forget it is Odd Sock Day in conjunction with Anti-Bullying Week on Monday 13th November. Send your children to school in the wackiest odd socks you can find.
It was proud day for All Saints as the whole school held their Remembrance Service in All Saints Church, Stibbard and then at The War Memorial. Year 5 and 6 led the service with Noah taking the lead. We had poems and prayers as well as a song. We were very grateful to Rev Sally who officiated.
At the War Memorial we heard the Roll of Honour and held a two minute silence as we remembered those who had fought and died in the war.
Year 5 and 6 spent time at the War grave of John Thompson, he died of his injuries once he had returned from the war.
We then returned to the church to look at the Remembrance display properly, we were able to read further about the people whose names are on the memorial.
It was lovely to have so many parents and a few villagers joining us for this occasion.
Year 6 will be in charge of the Poppy Appeal this week, they will be standing by the year 6 classroom at the start of school and during break time. Can we please suggest a minimum donation of 50p for the snap bands, keyrings, bands and anything else in the box? The poppies can be a donation of your choice. If you have a safety pin at home please attach the poppy to your child. The sticky poppies are not great at sticking!
Please send your child with their donation safely in a named envelope.
We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the war memorial on Friday at 10.55am.
We held our whole school Harvest Collective Worship today. It was wonderful to see the hall so full and alive with all of our children, including our nursery family for the first time this term and only the second time for the Reception class. We were joined by many family and friends too.
Children from Year 5 and 6 led our worship, they had prepared a presentation about Harvest and explained that all the contributions that were brought into school would be going to the food bank. Our harvest table was full to the brim with so much food and non perishable items, we really are so grateful for everyone’s generosity.
We ended our Collective Worship with an enthusiastic Harvest Samba and a prayer led by the children.
During PE this term the children have been working on their gross motor skills and different ways they can move around a space. We have practised hopping, 2 footed jumping, side steps, marching, skipping and so many more. The children have loved getting creative with their movement and finding different ways to move. We have also been working on our balance, incorporating team games, yoga and gymnastics into our weekly PE lessons.
