    A rainbow of hope

    You may have noticed a very colourful rainbow on our school railings.  Reverend Eleanor came into school for the morning to carry out an extended Collective Worship.  The rainbow has many meanings, and we actually have one on our school vision vessel to represent our seven learning behaviours.  This rainbow is also a symbol for hope for a healthy and happy year ahead.

    Wow!

    Chough Class enjoyed finding ‘wow’ factors in the world around us for this term’s RE topic ‘What do Christian’s learn from the creation story?’ We collected fascinating natural objects from around the school and discussed how intricate and amazing there were.  We then spent a quiet moment listening to nature’s symphony.

    Remembrance

    As we are unable to attend church at the moment we held our own Remembrance service on 11th November.  During half term the children painted stones with poppies which they brought to school and we placed on the memorial in the churchyard.

    Please have a look at them as you go past – they are beautiful!

    Year 6 Leavers’ Wildlife Project

    Since returning to school after lockdown, Year Six have been working really hard on a wildlife project, which will be their legacy to the school.

    To begin with they cleared and replanted the wildlife garden with herbs, flowers and fruit trees.  They then each researched an animal which might visit the garden.  Taking inspiration from the book The Lost Words, they created a beautiful book of art, poetry and information about each animal to gift to the school. Finally, each child designed and made an item for the garden to encourage their animal to visit.

    This project has been fantastic for promoting positive well-being at this difficult time.  It has also been a chance for the children to give thanks for their time at St Thomas à Becket Primary School before their transition to secondary school.
