CHILDREN IN NEED - FRIDAY 17th NOVEMBER 2017
Thank you so much to all of Oak class for your kind donations and delicious treats. Don't we look spotacular!
On Friday 10th November we had a 2 minute silence at 11am and in the afternoon we made our own poppies to take home.
The children sat beautifully and seemed to reflect on the soldiers who fought bravely in the wars.
The pictures helped them to focus and we shared a Remembrance poem at the end of the day.
On Thursday 9th November a very energetic Sam Ruddock came into school to see us during Collective Worship. Sam is a shot putt para-olympian and he was very friendly and inspirational. He informed the children about healthy living and the importance of diet, exercise and sleep. His determination to persevere was a wonderful message.
For Remembrance Day we held a ribbon tight and thought in silence about the soldiers and also about someone we may have lost. Afterwards we went outside and tied our ribbons to the heart on the front gate. We talked about how, even when family or friends have left us, they remain in our hearts and memories.
On Thursday 2nd November Holbeach Academy came into school to give us a taster of their performance 'Joseph'. It was a wonderful display of singing and harmony, it was clear that a lot of hard work and preparation had gone in to such a polished performance.
The children all thoroughly enjoyed the music and have taken home details of the times and dates of the performances.
On Wednesday 1st November we were lucky to have 3 fire-fighters come into school to teach us all about firework and bonfire safety ready for 5th November. We were shocked to find out that fireworks and even sparklers burn at 2000oC!
Mrs Upsall and Mrs Farrell had a race to see who could get dressed in the uniform the quickest; the time limit is to be seconds for fire-fighters!
Findley and Emilia practised how to 'Stop Drop and Roll' - the way to react when clothes are alight.
Thank you to the fire brigade for giving up your time for us, as they were on duty, and we were very pleased they were not called away to an emergency.
