  • Friday 21 January 2022 NSPCC Number Day A reminder that, once again, we will be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 4 February 2022. The NSPCC need our support more than ever. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern. We will be having a fun day of maths activities and we will be taking part in Dress up for Digits. Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). Or get even more creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme. To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1. We are mindful that some families are unable to donate, so please don’t feel under any pressure. Please donate money raised via our online payment system, Scopay. We really appreciate your support.

In the Bible, wisdom is seen both as a gift from God and a characteristic of God. In his parables Jesus taught that placing trust in God and recognising what is of value in life brings fulfilment. This term, as a whole school community, we will be reflecting on:

  • Thursday 11 November 2021 Value for the term: Courage The value for the term this term is Courage. Basic to the Christian faith is the belief that God is always present in every situation, even those when we are experiencing difficulty. We will be exploring acts of courage when people have faced danger, overcome their fears, stood up for what they believe is right and encouraged others to persevere. It is often through prayer and reflection that adults and children find the strength to help them be courageous. We will be considering the following key questions:

  • Thursday 24 June 2021 Incredible Learning in Year 5 In Term 5, the children in Year 5 worked with Sally Townsend from the Alzheimer’s Society, as well as Mrs Forrester, to become ‘Dementia Friends’. They learned what dementia is, developing their understanding of symptoms, causes and types. They used their knowledge and understanding to then begin to consider ways to support those with dementia, reflecting extremely sensitively upon some of their own personal experiences of knowing friends and relatives with the disease. This week, the children were lucky enough to put all their learning into practice, when they met Mike, a man living with dementia. They learned about his life before and after diagnosis, through asking a range of their carefully prepared questions and they listened attentively to all he had to say. The children were so understanding and considerate and Mike was incredibly interested in finding out about them too. There was a lot of laughter throughout the session! By the end, the children certainly had
