Today we visited the church for our Easter service. The children all behaved so well. We sang the song “Spring Chicken”.
We’re starting our summer reading challenge. For your child to get a raffle ticket they need to have read 5 times in a week. Please could you mark this in their normal reading record and on their Summer Reading Challenge record as well. Each raffle ticket they get will be entered into a draw at the end of term. There are two Kindles to be won so the more raffle tickets they have the more chances there are to win. Good Luck!
Celtic Crosses were used as sign to Christians of a place were they could worship. They were used because they couldn’t build churches quickly enough. Having studied different Celtic Crosses we identified and sketched the parts we liked best. We then used these to influence our own art work. Now we are going to use them to design our own Celtic Cross and then build it out of clay.
King Ethelbert recruited the help of year 3 in solving his Anglo – Saxon framers problem. He needs all fields to have a perimeter of 28M. The children used their maths knowledge to help solve his problem.
School council have been busy organising fundraising activities this term. The fun started in March with Comic Relief. School council arranged a crazy hair day and come to school in red themed day. Several members of the school council came into school early and collected donations as the children and parents walked through the gates in the morning. They raised a tremendous £440.
After discussing fundraising activities and charities with their classes, the members of the school council agreed that they would raise money for the Salvation Army and Oxfam. Each class collected 10p’s for a coin race on the last day of term – Oak class collected the most. Well done. At the same time, we organised an enormous Easter egg raffle with all prizes donated by members of staff. Amidst much excitement, there was a raffle draw on the last day of term with over 50 prizes! With these efforts an impressive £550 was raised.
