Harvest Celebration!

On Wednesday we had a whole school assembly to celebrate Harvest. Mrs Bain told us why Harvest was important to Christians and how they celebrated it.

How do churches celebrate Harvest today?

Today, most U.K. churches have a Harvest Thanksgiving service. The church building may be decorated with a display of flowers and food, perhaps including a large loaf in the shape of a wheat sheaf. Often people bring more gifts of food to add to the display during the church service.Afterwards, the food will be sold to raise money for charity, or given directly to those in need. At harvest-time, the sharing of food helps Christians to remember that all good gifts come from God.

Lots of children donated food which was then given to people who were in need 🙂 Thank you to all the help and support from parents to help us celebrate this festival!

Our School Sports Crew Assembly!

On Monday our School Sports Crew Leaders presented a ‘ Healthy Living’ assembly to Year 1-6. They explained why it was important to stay fit and healthy and ways they could achieve this. They asked all the children to take part in a quiz to find out what they knew about fitness and keeping healthy already. They explained about how keeping fit can help you release stress and  that being active is great for your physical health and fitness too! Evidence shows that it can also improve your mental wellbeing. What you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing.

What did you learn from this assembly ? 

Did you win a gold box prize for a correct answer?

What are you going to now change to help you keep even fitter?

School Sports Crew ..

 

This week our School Sports Crew had their first meeting of the year.

They discussed what clubs and competitions we needed to put in place this year based on feedback from children across the school. We had lots of exciting ideas! 

They have now set up their own rota to support at playtimes with playing games fairly and correctly.

The Sports Crew are also trained to help children across the school keep healthy and fit during their playtimes.
