Each week in KS1, a mystery reader visits each classroom via zoom to read the children a story of their choice! The children are thoroughly enjoying this session and wait with great anticipation to find out who their mystery reader is every Wednesday. So far Allan Ahlberg and Michael Rosen have read especially for us!
Author Visit: Neal Zetter
We have already had a virtual visit from children’s author, Neal Zetter. He spent the morning beaming live into our classrooms. There were roars of laughter throughout the morning and the children thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
Every year we collect Harvest Donations which we donate to the local foodbank. In class we produce art work and think of the importance of sharing and community.
Year 3 all received dictionaries from the Lowestoft Rotary Club in September to use at home to support their learning. Thank you to the Rotary Club for presenting these to the students for the 9th year running!
Hundred River Farm
KS1 children received a "Farm in a box" which included lots of fun and exciting activities to help them explore farms. They were also able to take a virtual tour of Hundred River Farm thanks to Farmer Jackie.
On November 11th, we held a special virtual assembly to remember all of the lives lost at war and the sacrifices that were made for our freedom. Our children understand the importance to take a moment to "Pause, Reflect and Remember". The children were also invited to wear their Cubs, Scouts and Brownies uniforms for the day.
Each year, we collectively work as a school on a remembrance display. This year, every child in school (from nursery to year 6) made a stone painting in remembrance. They were displayed together to remind us that we are greater and stronger when we are together.
BBC Children In Need & World Kindness Day
Once again this year, we took part in fundraising for BBC Children In Need. Throughout the school day, we spent time considering how fortunate we are compared to some children in the world. As Children In Need coincided with World Kindness Day this year, we completed
activities which helped us to think about ways that we can spread more kindness and empathy wherever we go.
Network Rail Assembly
During November, our children engaged in a very informative assembly from Network Rail. We learnt all about the dangers of railway lines and how to stay safe when crossing them. This information
is very relevant for our children as we are surrounded by a number of railways and railway crossings in our local area.
