Supporting Children in Need
Sponsored silences, badge making, cake sales and choir performances were just some of the ways the children raised money to support Children in Need.
The teachers used the opportunity to teach the children about the importance of 'Making a Difference' to others as one small gesture can change the world!
Learning to compost
Lucinda Hodges treated us to an Assembly about compost!!!
As you know, we’ve already been joint winners of the Junior Recycling officers of the year and this is an extra area of recycling we can all get involved in at home and school. Lucinda showed us what things can turn into compost, which will in turn help our plants and our environment.
Things like hamster bedding, fruit skins and even cardboard can turn into compost over time. In school we have 2 compost bins in the gardening area and every spring we empty them into the garden patch to help new plants grow!
Lots of food is wasted, the photos show you how much. From January 2020, every household will be given a small compost caddy to keep in the kitchen to recycle cooked foods, which will be collected with your rubbish. Did you know, these can be turned into compost in 8 weeks!
PTA ORGANISE SPECTACULAR FIREWORK DISPLAY
The PTA organised the school firework display. Families from the school and local community shared a fantastic evening which culminated in a brilliant firework display.
We have a school aim to work together with the local community for mutual benefit and this was definitely one of those occasions.
Thank you PTA for all your hard work, we really appreciate it!
Whole School Remember
Mrs Walsh led a whole school assembly for Armistice to remind the children of the importance of 11th November as a time to remember those in service who have given their lives and help keep us safe - past and present.
The year 6 children have been selling poppies and other items on behalf of the Royal British Legion.Today's assembly looked at the symbol of the poppy and what the different colours mean.
The whole school stood in silence for one minute to reflect and then ended with a beautiful rendition of the hymn, 'We Shall Remember.'
Year 5 and 6 Athletics Squad
The yr 5/6 sportshall athletics team had a great afternoon at Wilmslow High School.
They competed in a variety of track and field events against 9 local primary schools. They produced some fantastic throws and jumps, as well as running some very fast races on the track.
The whole team showed great team spirit and sportsmanship, encouraging and congratulating each other in every event. Overall the team came 4th. Well done to everyone who took part.
NSPCC visit school
The NSPCC came to deliver the message of Speak out. Stay safe.
The children were shown how to make a call to Childline if they needed to and how to speak out to a trusted adult or friend if they felt that things were making them feel upset or uncomfortable.
Buddy, the mascot, was on hand t reassure everyone that they were doing the right thing.
