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:

 

  • Maple class - recited the story of 'The Little Red Hen.'
  • Cedar - Showed their art work.
  • Ash - Poetry using the letters 'HARVEST' to spell out key words.
  • Willow - Spoke about the meaning of Harvest.
  • Chestnut - informed us about Fairtrade.
  • Sycamore - told us about Harvest around the world.
  • Cherry - displayed their vegetable art.
  • Silver birch - Ended our assembly with a thoughtful prayer.

 

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! 

 

 

Diwali 

 

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. 

Advent Assembly

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:

We were very pleased to receive a donation of 30 brand new Bibles from the Wessex Auxiliary of the Trinitarian Bible Society. This means that when classes are learning about Christianity, each child has access to an individual copy.

Our amazing Young carers were asked to take part in the St. Mary's 'Decorate a Xmas Tree' project. Each business or organisation that takes part has to decorate a Christmas tree at St. Mary's Church according to the words of a chosen carol. Our Young carers were busy designing and making decorations using a variety of materials with their group leader Mrs McConnell. Can you guess which carol they chose by looking at their beautifully decorated tree? These trees are admired by the local community as visitors are encouraged to take part in a festive quiz. We think they did a terrific job and we're already thinking of next year's carol...
