We had lots of creative fun celebrating Bonfire Night
Thanks to Natasha Freddie’s mum, the pupils were able to make their own Halloween cards. We hope you like their spooky creations.
On Wednesday 16th October, our pupils attended a storytelling festival at Worcester University. They had a great time and then came back and shared the skills they had been shown with the primary pupils in years 3, 1 and Reception.
his term the pupils have been busy with various crafts. Often the artwork accompanies the stories we read Handa’s Surprise, Stone Soup and Ouch.
Making a difference to children in emergency care.
On Friday 4th October the pupils from all year groups Reception through to Year 6, their parents and teachers packed 180 Buddy Bags. This was an effort to give back into the wider community and make a small difference, to quote Freddie aged 5 “how they were filled bags for children who don’t have anything.”
The Buddy Bags are rucksacks with essential items: pyjamas, underwear, books, crayons and toiletries. The most important item is the bear that goes into the bag last. Before placing it into the bag the bear is given a hug and a love.
The Buddy Bags are funded through fundraising, sponsorship and donations.
The Buddy Bags are then distributed to women’s refuges in the UK that deal with children who have been victims of domestic and sexual abuse. Each participating centre will keep a stock of Buddy Bags that can be handed to children when they are placed in emergency care.
Fantastic news and well done Daisy! Following her work as an Eco Committee member and the work she did at the pond in Henley in Arden last term; Daisy wrote to Blue Peter over the summer. She is now a proud owner of a Green Blue Peter badge.
This year we have participated in Henley in Bloom by sponsoring a pot and all pupils created their own miniature gardens.
Libby in Year 2 was awarded First Prize for her Japanese Garden.
Thursday 11th July, 3 pupils from years 4 and 5 attended the Warwickshire Junior Book Awards run by the School Library Service. They had read, reviewed and rated four books prior to attending. They were lucky enough to meet and talk to all the authors and have their books signed!
