Since we returned to school in September, the PTA have organised lots of events in school. Of course, with the coronavirus pandemic we have not been able to run events such as the Barmy Bingo and the school Christmas Fair is on hold but we have involved the children in a number of exciting activites. Keep checking this page as we go through the year to see what we have been up to.
The children all took part in a Pumpkin Hunt around the school grounds. Various pictures of pumpkins were hidden around school that children had to find, which spelt out a secret message. Pizes were awarded for the children who succesfully cracked the code in each year group.
Children were invided to take pictures of pumpkins they carved (see the video below for all the entries). There were some weird and wonderful entries. The winner was Eoin in Year 4. Well done to everyone who took part!
Some families decorated their windows at home and sent us pictures (see the video below for all the entries). The winning window (and fireplace!) belongs to Michael in Year 4.
Families were also encouraged to take a photo of themselves dressed up in spooky costumes (see the video for all the entries below). The winning family was Brooke (Year 3), Evie and Izzy (Year 5). They looked pretty scary!
500 Words Story Competition
The children were invited to write a spooky, 500 word story. There were lots of entries and some very scary stories. See the video below to see some children reading exerts from their stories. The winners were Noah and Darcey in Year 5. Noah also created a powerpoint of his story which you can see below.
On the last day of term, children were invited to contribute a £1 to dress up in Halloween costumes. Pictures of the children can be seen on the class pages. Many children joined in and had really gone to town with their costumes.
In school, all the children painted a rock with images that celebrated community, friendship and love. Children who paid a £1 then took their rocks home and put them out somewhere in the community. On the bottom of each rock was a number and the PTA email address. Members of the community were invited to email the PTA if they spotted one with the number they had seen. We received lots of emails of rocks being spotted and lots of lovely comments from members of the community who thought the idea celebrated community and harmony and really brightened up their day. The rocks that were not taken into the community were placed in the quad garden in school.
