The new school lunch menu for after half term will be sent home in pupils’ bookbags next week. A reminder that if you wish to change your child’s meal option from packed lunch to school dinners or vice versa after half term, you must let the school office know before the end of next week, i.e. before the half term break. Thank you.
Our school Islam day was a great success. The day started with a whole school assembly given by Claire Ali from Islam Educational Workshops. She then visited the classrooms for fun and interactive workshops throughout the day, which included songs, artefacts and the clothing worn. The children developed an understanding of the Islamic faith and the key festivals celebrated.
Thank you to Mrs Akehurst who organised the day.
Some of our Year 6 pupils decided to hold a school bake off to encourage pupils to experience the joy of baking cakes! This was open to the whole school and proved very popular! All sorts of lovely homemade cakes were brought in earlier this week and judged by Jessie, Amy Swan, Marlena, Shakeel and Tyler from Year 6, and Mrs Dada. Well done for all their hard work organising the competition. The winners were:
- Best Design: Kairon (Y4) and Poppy (Y3)
- Tastiest Bake: Alexander Crowe (Y4)
- Overall Star Baker: Juliette (Y3) and Evie (Y2)
Well done to our winners and to everyone who took part! Lastly, huge thanks to Mrs Dada for all her support.
Year 5 and 6 spent yesterday afternoon learning all about the work of a magistrate when they were visited by local magistrates, Hannah and John. They were told lots of very interesting facts on what a magistrate does, with a questions and answers session. They were given different scenarios and asked to decide whether they considered these a crime or not. Some of the children were surprised to learn that magistrates don’t get paid for their work! Hannah and John said that they were really impressed with Year 5 and 6.
Year 2 led a lovely harvest assembly this morning. They talked about harvest around the world and showed their fruit artwork. They also sang beautifully. They did really well performing to such a large audience!
Thank you to everyone who donated items for the Kings Pantry Food Bank. John Swain from the Bethany Community Church in Harpenden came in and spoke to the school briefly about the Food Bank and thanked everyone for all the items brought in.
You will shortly see appearing on various walls in our school, a lovely word cloud which includes a collection of carefully selected words that we believe define the values of our school. This was created by our former PTA Chair, Sue Stevens, and we were so impressed by it that we have decided to put it on display.
