Anti-bullying Workshops

We had a visit from Altru Creative Education, who performed a fantastic play all about the importance of being unique and celebrating our differences. We learned a lot about being a good friend and how to stop bullying too. Some of us even got to take part in some workshops, which taught us even more about being good friends, working together and what to do if we notice bullying. 

Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to. 

Thankfulness Week 2017

For Anti bullying week this year we decided to focus on being thankful for our friends and linked this to our Christian Value this half term of 'Thankfulness'

It as been lovely to see so many of our classes working together this week and celebrating what it means to be a good friend. Lots of fun activities took place all over school.

World Teachers' Day 

To celebrate World Teachers' Day, our Year 6 school council team sent little thank you notes around to all of the teachers in the school. Some of them thanked teachers for all of their hard work and others praised teachers for some of their wonderful displays around school. The notes were read out to the teachers to embarrass them and they had their pictures taken. 

Harvest festival 

4NB held a wonderful harvest festival assembly in school and invited their parents to join us. 

Our whole school have been very generous and donated lots of packets and tins for our collection. This will be going to our local Foodbank which will help and support lots of families. Thank you to all our families for being kind and supportive.

Remembrance service

Today our year 6 children delivered a wonderful and heart-warming assembly about remembrance. Every child in Year 1-6 made their own poppy and wore it to the assembly as a sign of respect.  We had special visitors from our local community and some soldiers to watch out assembly and joined the children for tea/coffee and biscuits afterwards.
