We had some very special visitors
Local Church Visit
Willow class really enjoyed their trip to the local church. We learnt lots that will help us to understand more about places of worship. We had a talk from the vicar, asked lots of brilliant questions and explored the church. We also learnt about the different symbols in the church, what they mean and why they are there. Mrs Hornsby was given the very important job of ringing the church bell!
Caring for myself and others
In our RE lessons this term Willow class have been learning about caring for myself and others. At the end of this unit we were visited by 2 people who know all about caring for people- our local PCSO’s. We asked them lots of questions about their job and found out about how they care for people , who they care for and why it is so important to care for other people.
Starfish class have been learning about road safety with the Road Safety Team. Eggbert was dropped wearing his bike helmet but look what happened when he wasn’t wearing his helmet! We know why it is important to wear a helmet when riding our bikes now! We practiced how & where to cross the road safely & our height was measured to see if we need to still sit on a booster seat when travelling in a car. Ask us if we are tall enough not to use a booster.
We all had fun and learned lots that will protect us.
Community Christian leaders
Starfish class have been learning about the role of community Christian leaders & wrote letters to invite two guests into school to answer our questions about their community role. Our guests answered our questions, brought objects in for us to learn about & handle and helped us understand more about all the different ways they support us in our community. We are sending them thank you letters next!
Where are you Johnny James? by Firehorse Productions
The children watched live theatre by Firehorse Productions giving them an important message about personal and cyber safety in a humorous and memorable way!! The play entitled Where are you Johnny James? Used a quiz format to teach and test the ‘stranger danger’ message and that strangers are online as well as people we don’t know in the streets. The Parkwall pupils enjoyed the show and were reminded of the e-safety message that is regularly taught in class.
