Our school and church community came together to give thanks for the gifts of the harvest. The celebration was closely related to our metaphor for learning - boats. Tilly and Wilson presented a series of fantastic performances, including Fletcher and Nathan's beautiful "Hawaiian Fisherman Song" and Antoine played his saxophone confidently in the Breton Fisherman's prayer. Class 8 retold an animal story and Erin, Morgan and Lilly from Class 12 spoke very passionately about the fragility of our world. Class 10 performed a choral speaking version of "Jesus calms the storm" and Edwin, Izzy and Shakina led thoughtful prayers linked to our seas and oceans.
Father John finished the service by blessing the Harvest loaf. All the food given has been donated towards the Bristol North Foodbank and The Little Sisters of the Poor.
At the end of a recent assembly, Mrs Kydd and Mrs Jones were very excited to show everyone the new UKLA books for this year. Extracts were read from some of the books and at the end of assembly there was a chance for everyone to have a quick read through the new books.
Mrs Bright was kept very busy at the end of last week with her brilliant organisation of the secret ballot for our new School Councillors. Every year there is an election process then each class votes in a secret ballot.
So our new Councillors for 2017-2018 are:
|Class 3 - Evie & Lenny||Class 4 - Savan & William|
|Class 5 - Claudie & Maddie||Class 6 - Ava & Amelia|
|Class 7 - Oscar & Alice||Class 8 - Oscar M & Lydia|
|Class 9 - Eleanor & Pete||Class 10 - Charlie & Josh M|
|Class 11 - Alfie & Kate||Class 12 - Sophie & Amelie|
|Class 13 - Ruth, Elen & Victoria||Class 14 - Elena & Mohammed|
Congratulations to our new Councillors and thank you to everyone who put themselves up for election.
Our learning metaphor this year is "Boats and Journeys" and we had some great boat creations at the beginning of term; we have a lot of builders, designers, engineers and architects! A wide range of materials were used including cork, Lego, balsa wood, plastics and cardboard. Every class also has our boat metaphor linked to their Class Charters - have a look on their year pages.
A huge welcome to all our new Reception children and their families. We hope you have all settled in to Horfield life and starting your new school adventure!
