Children across the school painted poppies onto wooden discs for our Acts of Remembrance. Some of the poppies were beautifully crafted into a wreath that was laid at the War Memorial in Whitfield. Others were given to Rev. Sean Sheffield to use as part of his service. We will be placing the rest around the school grounds on Wednesday 11th November.
HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY CAPTAIN TOM!
Have you heard about the amazing achievement of Captain Tom? He has been walking to raise money for the NHS and he is 99 - soon to be 100 (30th April)! His current total fundraising is £22,000,000 (22 million!)
Key-worker children have been creative by using PE equipment to make pictures for Captain Thomas Moore. Can you spot their aerial art? The children have also received replies from Riverlea Nursing home residents. If you would like to make Captain Tom a birthday card, the address is below:
The Key Worker children have been having a Robot Day. They had to think about how robots could help people during the Coronavirus pandemic. Some of their ideas included: robotic pets to help relieve loneliness during the lockdown, robots to disinfect hospital wards as well as robots to help parents keep their homes tidy with everyone at home!
The children then made their own 'junk model' robot and we took some photographs of them enjoying the sunshine in the Memorial Garden.
EGG DROP CHALLENGE
What an amazing response to the Easter holiday Egg Drop Challenge! There were an overwhelming 93 entries, the majority survived the first round of being dropped 3 metres. We are very grateful to Mr Sayer and Lee who dropped the finalists' devices from the school roof - over 5 metres high!
61 survived - the most we've ever had. 6 children received interesting design awards. CONGRATULATIONS! Mrs Betts.
