Autumn Term News 2018
07 January 2019
The air was still warm at the start of the autumn term and a hint of summer remained in the air. As the wheel of the year spun round and the nights drew in, schools celebrated the traditional activities associated with the year’s closing months. Harvest Festival, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day all feature in school calendars, with 2018 particularly focusing on the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Children participated in projects involving art, poetry, literature and history to learn and commemorate all those lost in World War I and subsequent wars. Beautiful poppy displays were created accompanied by the thoughtful words of our children.
The run up to Christmas then saw Christingle events, nativity plays and carol concerts to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
In day to day life, as well as working hard on the ever more demanding curriculum, schools have been busy receiving visitors who lead assemblies and enrich pupils' experiences. Events have been organised for Anti-Bullying week and children have fund raised through Macmillan Coffee Mornings and Children in Need activities.
