Healthy Tuck Shop

A great start to our Healthy Tuck Shop which resumed again this week. Such a bargain when all items are 30p and such a choice. Bananas, apples, raisins, cheese, healthy drinks… I wonder what will be on offer next week?

Pop along to the hall on Wednesday morning break-time and refuel!

Than you to our three school councilors who have done a sterling job this week running the stall.

KS2 Celebration Assembly

This week the theme was ‘empathy’, which is the ability to share and understand the feelings of another. The selected stars for this week have shown how they can look at things from another person’s perspective and acted upon that to improve a situation. This could also include thinking about a scenario for an event and giving reasons for why the situation has occurred or resulted as it has. Some have even explained to another why their friend might be upset over a situation and pointed out that viewpoint to help other to understand.

Well done to everyone who was selected and keep it up!

Next week the theme is ‘teamwork’, so come on everybody, let’s work together on this!


KS2 Star Assembly

Due to bank holiday on Monday and the assembly introducing the theme not taking place, the teachers were able to choose from any of the previous themes for this week. They ranged from perseverance to creative thinking; resilience to risk-taking, self-regulation to determination… the list went on!

It was fantastic to see the nominees being recognised for their individual attributes and the pride on the faces of their families who came to see the presentations. In fact some of them were up out of their seats! Well, they were looking under their chairs for the theme for next week which is ’empathy’.

Fairtrade Pop-up Coffee Shop!
Fairtrade Pop-up Coffee Shop!

Thank you for coming to our Fairtrade Pop up coffee shop! The children worked hard to make some delicious treats that included Fairtrade products such as; bananas, sugar, dried fruit, coffee and syrup.

The total amount that we raised was £112, this will go towards our Food for Life award fund that will enable us to replace our flight trays with bowls and plates. Once we have achieved this goal we will be able to receive our Silver Award which reflects all the hard work that our kitchen, teachers and gardening team put into teaching the children the value of healthy food and sustainability.

Thank you to Mrs Mullins for collecting all the items from the Fairtrade shop in Leicester, JUST. Thank you to Mr Pattuzzi for all the amazing work that you do with our Garden Rangers. Thank you to Mrs Smith who helped us with the baking and preparation of the cakes.

Throughout the whole event, we referred to the ‘Fairness’ Superhero…lots of food for thought!

KS2 Celebration Assembly 3.5.19

The theme for this week was ‘honesty’ and the chosen stars have been recognised for their strength of this character muscle.

Some have developed their ability and confidence to be honest about their feelings; relay with honesty events that have taken place that may have caused a problem and to be honest about challenges they are facing in their learning.

Well done to all the nominees for this week. Next week, the theme is ’empathy’.
