The children did an incredible job in their Christmas performances, as did the staff who helped them to prepare! We are fortunate to have such talented children here!
On Sunday 9th December, the choir performed at St Mary’s Church Christingle service. They did a fantastic job and represented the school beautifully. Well done to all of you, and also to Mr Watkins for his hard work.
On Wednesday 31st October, Kirstine and Charlotte from St Mary’s church ran a Prayer Space Day for the children. Each class took part in different activities which allowed them to reflect on their thoughts and feelings about different issues such as homelessness in London, natural disasters and peace. They also explored their own gifts and gave some really thoughtful responses.
In assembly today, we talked about why it is so important for children to be in school every day. Here are some facts about this term:
We were delighted that so many children hit our school target of 96% or higher attendance!
What made us most excited was the fact that 100 children had 100% attendance! This is brilliant and now we are aiming to beat that figure for next term!
On Wednesday, we held our harvest service in St Mary’s church. The children read, prayed and sang beautifully! The choir (and Mr Watkins) also treated us to a special performance of ‘You’re Welcome’ from the film Moana. Thank you to the musicians from St Mary’s church for accompanying us.
We would also like to say a really big thank you for all the donations of food for the North Paddington foodbank. Your generosity and thoughtfulness are much appreciated and will really help out some families in need.
Yesterday, we held our first outdoor Prayer Space Day led by St Mary’s Church. Using our Collective Worship theme of Jonah, there were different stations enabling the children to explore the themes of the story. There was even a whale’s mouth to go into!
Children thought about: who helps them to make choices, what they do when things are difficult, what they want to aim for, and forgiveness for the things we are sorry for.
We are very grateful to Kirstine and Charlotte from St Mary’s for running this wonderful day for us.
We are delighted that 65 of our children met or exceeded their attendance targets last term, or kept 100% attendance. Well done to all those children. Particular congratulations go to F2, Y3 and Y6 where a high proportion of the class achieved this. The children who exceeded their target will be able to choose a special prize from Miss Clarke-Harding this afternoon.
Every child from F2 to Y6 will receive a new target for the summer term on Thursday. Let’s see who else can beat their goal!
