Paddington Bear Fundraising Morning
Lower School children took part in a special Paddington Bear morning to support a charity in Poland who are helping Ukrainian refugees. Each child did helping hands jobs at home to raise money. They brought to school their favourite teddy bear and took part in a range of age appropriate activities to learn about the refugee situation, pray for those who are refugees, make Paddington cakes, marks and bookmarks. A big thank you to all the Lower School families who helped to raise over £200 for this important work.
Coast Guard Visit
World Book Day
Lower School children loved taking part in World Book Day 2022. They each came to school dressed in their favourite book character and enjoyed taking part in a wide range of book related activities throughout the day. These included cosy reading by torchlight, designing bookmarks, making role play masks, designing teddy bear biscuits and a taking part in Bible quiz. The highlight for many was watching their teachers take part in a pantomime about Goldilocks and her 3 friends ... watch out for Burglar Bill!

Lower School Nativity Play
Our Lower School children performed a wonderful Nativity Play. The singing was heartfelt and joyful and our actors and narrators did a great job of telling this very special story. Well done everyone!
Disability Awareness Month
Mrs Wakeling came to do our assembly this week entitled 'Differently Abled' and taught us that we are all created by God with different gifts. She told the story of 'Helen Keller' who was deaf and blind but learnt to read and write and later became an author. Mrs Wakeling taught the children how to say 'hello' using sign language and then the children had chance to try on glasses which enabled them to experience what it is like to be visually impaired. The children also took part in a braille challenge and managed to crack the code!
11th November 2021
