Anti-bullying week and Children in Need week, along with everything else - I think it's fair to say we've been busy.
First of all can we say a massive thank you for all your support, we can't tell you how many donations we have had already for our advent gifting calendar (for the food banks), along with your donations for Children in Need today.
We started off Monday quite 'ODD', when the children and staff arrived wearing odd socks. They absolutely loved it and we shared being different and unique in a whole school assembly to talk about bullying and the importance of anti-bullying week. We continued looking at this in our PSHE sessions and on Thursday we discussed what it means to be a good friend, the children created hand prints which we have shared in assembly and we looked at the difference between falling out once and what bullying means.
We have been using our senses to help us think how people would have felt in 1666 when the Great Fire of London was taking place. We are going to be using this to help us write a diary next week, along with the grammar work we have been working on.
We have looked in more detail at how long the fire took place and why it continued to burn for such a long period of time. They have been quizzed on the events all week and are really impressing us with their sticky learning.
On Friday, we had Children in Need and it was very different being in our own clothes. They really enjoyed juice and toast for break time and we have done lots of activities linked to the charity. Thank you again for all your support.
We have sent costume slips home for the Christmas play, if there are any issues please speak to us.
