LGBT History Month

posted 2 Feb 2018, 07:39 by Website Admin   [ updated 2 Feb 2018, 07:39 ]

This week all of the children have been learning about LGBT History Month (February each year) through a range of activities in their classes. Mr Rodger kicked the week off with a workshop focusing on how the rainbow is a symbol of peace and unity that the LGBT community have adopted as their flag. Children have thought about how differences make us all unique and special and how important it is to treat people with equal respect. Celebrating LGBT History Month each year not only allows our children to gain an insight into other people's lives, but also helps us work towards our Stonewall Champion School Gold Award which we hope to be able to apply for later in the year. Our hall is now covered in displays showing off all of the children's learning. It looks amazing and very colourful - make sure you get a chance to look at it next time you drop in.

Last Friday (19th January), Year 4 took part in an African Workshop day. The day was packed full of activities and workshops which kept them very busy while they learned about African arts, history and culture. The pictures below show three of the workshops that the children took part in: African dance and storytelling; African drumming and Tie and dye. 

Co-op Community tokens

posted 19 Jan 2018, 07:34 by Website Admin   [ updated 19 Jan 2018, 07:58 ]

We are delighted to let you know that our recent application to take part in the Community Token Scheme has been successful!  The collection boxes appeared in stores on the 15th January and will run for three months until 12th March.

 

Below are the Co-Op stores who will be supporting us:

·Mersea Road

·Wimpole Road

·Old Heath

·Harwich Road

·Greenstead

·Wivenhoe

·Rowhedge

 

Every time a member shops with the Co-op, they’ll be given a token to put in the collection box of their choice. More tokens in our box means a bigger share of the £1000 for us – so make sure you vote for Kendall each time you shop at your local Co-op. Although the token boxes state that the PTA are raising the money for the outside classroom, as it has now been constructed, it has been decided that money from the tokens will be used for making better provisions for sheltering the wellies, used for Forest School and LOTC sessions.


Welly racks

posted 19 Jan 2018, 07:31 by Website Admin   [ updated 19 Jan 2018, 07:31 ]

We have been made aware of the need to be more vigilant when the children stack their wellies on the racks, as a few of them are left on the floor and are then collecting rainwater. I have asked my staff to remind children how to stack the boots properly. I am personally very disappointed with the welly racks, which were very expensive when I bought them last year, because some wellies are just too big to fit on them. I am now going to look for alternatives, for example class welly sheds, and will ask the PTA if they can help us to raise funds for these. In the meantime, we will try to make sure wellies are placed on racks properly and covers used when appropriate. Staff will check the racks at least once a day and will also bring any wellies that do get wet inside, into our resources room so that they can dry before their next Forest School or LOTC session. You can also help us with this problem, if you see wellies on the playground, please stack them back on the racks provided. Thank you.
