Kindness Week 2017

We have been involved in World Kindness Day this week, it is celebrated nationally to promote kindness in all its forms. One of the activities was that the children have been keeping an eye out for others who have been kind to them or seen someone be kind. They then wrote them on a tag which was hung on our kindness tree in the entrance hall.

At the end of the week a child from every class went into Henley with Mrs Hopkins to spread a bit of kindness to the community by giving out free bookmarks that the children in Year 5 had made.

‘We walked into Henley and when we saw people we asked if they would like a bookmark, they then went in their pockets for money, but we said no there free and they were very happy to have one’ by Scarlet

Scarlet said ‘I felt proud and happy because they liked the bookmarks and were thankful for what we did.’

Year 4 Anglo Saxon Assembly – 20th October 2017

To finish our topic on the Anglo Saxons, Year 4 performed their class assembly to the school and their parents.

The assembly was full of fun and disgusting facts with a short extract from the poem ‘Beowulf’. They also performed a song called ‘The Saxons’ and got to show their brooches and weaving that they had designed and made in their DT lesson.

Well done to all of you, you were amazing!

RE – Reflection Day 2017

We held a Religious Education Reflection Day, on the 11th October; we focused on a wonderful story called ‘Only One You’ by Linda Kranz.

‘Only One You’ is an inspirational children’s book about a little fish who is about to go and explore the ocean on his own. His parents tell him some of the important lessons they have learned throughout their lives in hope that it will help their son on his journey. It shows a deep love between parents and their child, sharing wisdom they have gained over the years, which we as parents hope will be embraced and stored away until they are needed.

The story encourages children to make meaningful connections and understanding that they, in their own way, can truly make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others around them.

One of the activities the children took part in was designing and decorating a stone to celebrate their own uniqueness which will be displayed around the school grounds.
