In March, the children in Year 6 visited Manor Adventure in Shropshire where they took part in activities such as obstacle courses through mud, underground mazes, abseiling, rock climbing and many more!
This half term, our steering group have been working really hard to make sure that all of us understand what it means to be a Rights Respecting School and they have come up with different ways to promote the rights in our school.
They have also introduced us to our mascot and asked for help to name it…introducing Rosie Rights:
In this service led by the children in KS2, we heard and received the Good News of the birth of Christ as they offered to God our thanksgiving in the joyful singing of carols – retelling the story of the Nativity through a mixture of traditional and modern carols and readings.
In addition, the children in the School Council tried to raise awareness of and money for the Syrian Plea. As we approached Christmas time, we wanted to consider those families who are affected by the wars of Syria. Many children are vulnerable as they are exposed to war, dangers and extreme weather conditions as they have no shelter. For every £34 raised, one child will be provided with a complete winter kit – a warm winter coat, hat, gloves and sturdy boots. With the help of Year 6, they sold CDs of the concert and cakes as the parents arrived. Thanks to the generosity of our families, we were able to raise over £250!
In order to support our children globally, we ‘Brightened Up this Harvest’ by fundraising to support communities in Bolivia, South America. Our money raised will support CAFOD to provide seeds and training to farmers and to teach people to build greenhouses to grow produce that isn’t destroyed by the weather.
The children were encouraged to wear as many colours as they could on this day and donate some of their small change to help children like themselves globally. Here are some photos of the foundation children in their brightest clothes…
Year 6 worked incredibly hard to put together an end of year production that their family and friends would thoroughly enjoy. They also chose to try to raise money on the night of their performance by selling a selection of treats for the audience to enjoy. In total, they raised just over £150 for the Simon Richards Award for Young Violins, Cancer Research and the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
Well done – we are all very proud of everything you have achieved!
We have recently taken part in a prayer project, along with Bishop Walsh, Holy Cross and St Nicholas’ Schools. Each house group had a different theme to write a prayer about. Read our selection of prayers and look out for our Academy Prayer, produced by a selection of students from each school.
