We have had a really exciting day, celebrating British Values in our school. We came to school dressed in red, white and blue, and we spent the day thinking about and learning about ‘What it means to be British’.
Our children explored this in a range of creative ways. In Year 5 and 6, the children held mock trials of fictional characters and in Year 3 and 4 the children created beautiful pieces of word-art. In Years 1 and 2 the children learnt all about the importance of equality, and talked and wrote about the importance of valuing each other as individuals.
Our Reception class learnt about the Queen and looked at some of the important events that have happened in her life and during her reign. They did lots of creative activities and ‘wowed’ everyone with their writing.
We finished the day with singing and tea parties in honour of the 70th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip. We sang our school song for our school and village community and we also sang the National Anthem to recognise our British Community. Our choir sang ‘Sing’ in recognition of the wider ‘Commonwealth’ Community of which we are a part.
We finished the day with some tea parties in our classrooms. Everyone has enjoyed such a fun, interesting and thought-provoking day.
We held a quiet service of Remembrance in the church, followed by prayers and a silence at the village war memorial. The whole school attended the service, as did many of the wider school and village community.
Our children led the service and wrote thoughtful prayers and poems. They also did some beautiful singing.
“We must always remember these people who saved our lives. We didn’t know them but we must always thank them because they gave us our freedom and our life today is because of them.”
We were proud of our House Captains who presented the wreath at the village service on Remembrance Sunday.
We also presented poppy stones to the church and we placed poppy stones with the names of the fallen soldiers in the village memorial garden.
Every year we try to mark Remembrance in a visual and meaningful way, often involving our wider community. We have painted our stones with poppies and each one has a dedication to someone special. They are displayed for the whole village to see and share.
We have created some lovely card designs in every class. We have sold our designs to raise money for the school.
All of our children in Year 5 and 6 completed their Bikeability training. Our instructors commented on their commitment and effort, and we were proud that they achieved Level 1 and 2.
We were very proud of the resilience and team-work shown by all our KS2 children at the cross country championships.
Our children sang so beautifully at our Harvest Celebration and we were so proud of them all. Our school and village community were so generous with their donations of Harvest Produce
