Anti-Bullying Week 13th – 17th November 2017
We wore odd socks on the first day of Anti-Bullying week and we dressed in blue for Blue Friday. All the children drew a picture of themselves on a jigsaw piece and we fitted them all together to represent our school community. School Council gave out stickers on Blue Friday with the slogans ‘All different, all equal’.
When a person is alone they are ‘one piece’ but when they come together they make something special – a community that fits together perfectly, just like a jigsaw!
Understanding differences and celebrating them helps us prevent bullying.
Why doesn’t our jigsaw have edges or corners? The answer is, so that we can welcome others.
We held a Diwali Celebration on Friday 20th October. We looked at Rangoli patterns and found out how Diwali is celebrated. We sang songs about Diwali and did some Indian dance. We lit divas and had some fireworks.
Our pupils have been inspired to consider careers in engineering...

Hello my name is David Spencer and I live in Llanbedrog Wales.
I'm contacting you because today my wife Helen and I had the pleasure and meeting your year 6 group of pupils and accompanying staff.
To explain we rent a beach hut on the beach and when we went to it today we saw sat outside on the beach a large group of children. It's fair to say our hearts sank as we expected our day to be disrupted if not spoilt and we even considered turning around and going back home. To explain in the past groups of school kids have been a nightmare. Rude, loud, litterbugs.
How wrong we were.
The children numbering about 30 were a revelation. They were without exception polite, respectful and a pleasure to be around. To watch how they staff and pupils interacted was also a delight. Both showing each other respect and consideration. The children played together easily and without tension. They were thoughtful and good natured.
A number of other persons also on the beach, who had similar concerns also made mention of the good behaviour and politeness. They were going to pass on their favourable impression to the National Trust whom own the site.
Might I mention that I am a retired police officer who for ten years worked for the Sharrow policing team. I regularly policed Sharrow and am familiar with your school. I'm aware of the local communities the kids come from.
Please pass onto to whomever that your pupils and staff are a credit to you and themselves.
That there behaviour has greatly enhanced the schools reputation and that they will be welcome back anytime.
Well done to you because you are turning out great kids. Articulate , polite and considerate. What more can we ask.
All the children who had outstanding attendance for the Summer term 2017 received a certificate and the treat of an ice cream in the school playground.
