We have placed our poppies with pride on our new railings. We have had so many comments about them already and really want our children to remember the men and women who have fought in wars whether it be the World Wars or any other conflicts. We will be selling poppies and other related items after half term.
As requested by the children, we ran our first film night of the year. I am not sure how much of Matilda they actually watched but they enjoyed their hotdog and pop corn all the same! Thank you to Miss Webster, Mrs Stirrup and Mrs Williams for organising it and staying with the children.
As most of you know, we have had a SIAMs inspection. This is the diocesan equivalent to OFSTED. The inspector enjoyed his day at Clearwell and we loved showing off how fabulous our school is. Thank you to everyone who took time out of their day to talk to him. The report will be out in a few weeks time and we will share it with you as soon as we can. He was able to report everything that we knew already about our school, which is wonderful.
On Welly walk this week, the children gave their thanks to God and dressed the ash tree that they visit every week. Miss Warr asked the question “How do you think we should take care of the nature around us such as plants, rivers and animals?” The children responded with answers such as, “not littering; feeding the birds; keeping everything tidy; not chopping all of the trees down”. Mrs Griffiths spoke to the children about how beautiful God’s creation is, and how important it is to protect our world. Miss Warr read out a prayer that she had written, thanking God for the wonderful world we live in, and asking Him to remind us in our lives to look after the great things that He created.
More of our optional homework
We were very lucky to have one of our local firefighters and first response team come to talk to our children today to teach them how to stay safe. The children had a wonderful time as well as learning lots of useful information. Thank you Kat for coming.
