Two treats today… Cinderella for the whole school in the hall, followed by a surprise helicopter visit. It was very exciting watching the helicopter arrive, but then all the children had a chance to sit in the cockpit.
Thank you to Mrs Buckle for arranging the concert for years 2 & 3, and to the wonderful secondary school musicians who performed. We loved the music and really enjoyed having a go at playing the instruments afterwards.
All classes had a special assembly from the NSPCC, ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe‘ with Buddy. Upper Key Stage 2 children also had a workshop.
Father Paul visited Years 5 and 6 to talk to them about liturgical colours and vestments.
Year 5 and 6 designed and made sandals for children in Africa. They then evaluated the design and tried to persuade the Dragons to invest in their product. The Dragons struck some hard bargains!
We celebrated Advent Mass at St Edwards and in our school hall.
Reception and Preschool shared a brilliant day of daring rescues, complicated investigations, medical breakthroughs and parcel delivery!
Thank you very much to Open the Book for coming in to school today to show and tell us the story of Jesus and the children.
Thanks to Bea from CAFOD who visited us again this term. She told us about how special wiggly worms are transforming life for poor farmers in Bolivia.
