On Tuesday 10th October, we had our Harvest assembly. Reverend Rice kindly attended our school and came to our assembly. Every class contributed to the assembly, we had a variety of work, including:
Here are some pictures:
As a school, we worked together to bring in as much non-perishable food as possible to donate to our local food bank. As you can see, our table was very full!
To acknowledge the Hindu fesitval of Diwali, Ms Khan read the story of Rama and Sita to the whole school. We learnt that Diwali is a festival of light, and this is because they lit Diva lamps in the story of Rama and Sita to help them find their way home. Today, people have fireworks, light candles and spend time with family to celebrate this important festival.
Christmas story drama
Rhonda and Maren (from the Church) hosted an assembly which consisted of a brief drama which introduced aspects of the Christmas story through certain characters. Year 5 were then invited to a workshop which involved exploring the Christmas story through an interactive drama - this included the 'Whoosh' technique. They also took part in a 'role on the wall' activity, which encouraged the children to explore 3 of the characters from the story, by thinking about what they know or imagine of the person on the outside, followed by thinking about the thoughts and feelings of the characters. Here are some pictures of the assembly and workshop:
