Fun Food Chef

Today, the winners of our DT competition had their prize of an afternoon with the Fun Food Chef.

To win the competition, the children had to design and make a model of their house to display within school. The 15 winners were able to bring a family member in to participate in the Fun Food Chef workshop with them.

They all had a great time! Thank you to all the families who supported their children in the competition over half term, and especially to those family members who accompanied their children at the workshop this afternoon.

1. Some children within the school were awarded their gold coins for the ‘Good Friend’ award.These children have been given the seat covers constantly within their classroom to show they have been good friends , because of this, they have now earned their gold coin. This gold coin has amazing powers, you can swap it for a prize of your choice from the Argos catalogue. Children across the school are showing what a good friend they are and are being spotted by teachers. Here are another two children who have won this award:

Football vs Homophobia..

Today Miss Nelson visited our school . We had a special assembly about football against homophobia- which means using the word gay to mean something bad. We talked about how some footballers experienced this type of bullying from the crowd. We learnt about how they came together and set up a campaign to put a stop to this , they became role models and wore t-shirts to support this.

 

Year 5 and 6 then took part in workshops to learn more about this and why it was important.

 

What did you learn today?

 

What at are your thoughts? 

A visit from James Nicol!

Today, we have been visited by a fabulous author called James Nicol! First of all, we had a whole school assembly where we learnt all about James and the books he has written. Can you remember the name of some of his books?

This afternoon, we were also lucky enough to have a workshop with James where we created our own creatures that we could of used in our own stories. Tell me about your creature!

Heres some examples:

The Christie

This week we had a special assembly! We had a visitor from The Christie Hospital, which is a special hospital to treat people who are suffering from cancer.

Last year, our school council chose The Christie to raise money for. They organised several events to raise as much money as possible. During the assembly, we had the opportunity to present our visitor with the money we had raised. She was very impressed!

We also had a surprise when Christie Bear came in to say thank you!

NSPCC

Today, we have taken part in assemblies with the NSPCC. We have learned about how to speak out about things that are upsetting or worrying us so we can stay safe. We talked about our rights and why it is important to keep telling an adult until something changes.

Year 5 and Year 6 have also had workshops to help them understand how to keep themselves safe.
