Head’s Blog – 13th November

As we are heading our way through our second week of Lockdown, we are trying to keep things as normal in school as we possibly can. We have continued with learning, Remembrance commemorations, outdoor activities and Children in Need. I am always proud of the children at our school but none more so than on Wednesday of this week when all of them paid their respects to those who gave their lives so that we could live ours in the way that we know. Oak class watched a commemorative video on CBBC. The children then went off and of their own accord painted poppies, my heart melted. Willow participated in a service around the cross in the village. One of our Y5 children played the Last Post on her Tenor horn and a Y6 read a poem. We were joined by some of the neighbours who came out of their houses to pay their respects. The videos are on our YouTube channel.

This week in Welly walk we spent time discussing fire, listening to a fire (a cracklings candle!) and making fires in the garden. Year 3 created some fabulous pastel works of art of fire and wrote acrostic poems.

As Joe Wicks came to the end of his 24 hour PE session, we, along with lots of other primary schools, joined in for the last 25 minutes. Some of us found it harder than others! Thank you all for the donations for the charity, we raised £62, impressive when we only have 49 pupils in school. One mum even made biscuits for Oak class in Children in Need bags, so kind. Thank you. Oak class also spent the day preparing, cooking and then evaluating a range of different products.
