Book Review Competition
To encourage children to engage with reading we held a Book Review competition which the children had to complete at home. We had some excellent entries and the best book reviews were chosen as winners. The winners won a book of their choice by David Walliams, the author of the month for November 2018. Well done to everyone that entered the competition!
Congratulations to the winners!
The theme of Anti Bullying Week this year was ‘Choose Respect’. We all wore odd socks on Monday to mark the start of the week. Children had many opportunities to discuss the theme of ‘Respect’ in Art, P4C and PHSE. We then took part in a poster competition which was judged by the school council. It was great to see so many children taking part in Blue Friday – there was a real buzz throughout the school.
Y3s have been doing Road Safety training over the last few weeks. They learned skills such as: finding safe places to cross, always crossing in a straight line instead of a diagonal line and about the importance of paying attention when crossing roads. We hope they enjoy practising these new skills with their parents and carers.
Y5 children have been taking part in Bikeability, which is all about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives children the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling. They have absolutely loved it!
As part of Healthy Minds, we asked the children what they worried most about. 44% of our children said that their biggest problem was sleep. Following this we held a sleep workshop at school on October 25th, which 50 parents attended. Here are some of the key messages that we discussed.
