It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
and it’s not even December yet! Recent studies have shown that decorating for Christmas earlier than normal this year could have positive mental health benefits. We didn’t take much persuading! Have you put up your festive decorations at home?
Pupils in Year 9 are doing a project in Computing on how comics are made. We started by creating a superhero based on some of the school staff. Mrs George, Carol the Cleaner, Mr Sud, Mr Dilger and Miss Nisan are featured here! The next stage of the project is to create a storyboard.
All year groups are taking part in activities for Anti-Bullying Week throughout this week. The theme for this year is United Against Bullying, recognising the positive power that society can have when we come together.
On Monday we celebrated Odd Sock Day to recognise what makes us all unique. Year 2 also made some posters!
Did you hear us on BBC Radio Nottingham this morning?
Pupils in Key Stage 3 have been following Joe Wicks’ 24 Hour PE Challenge for Children in Need and supported him in his last hour by joining in with the workout! Of course we did our squats, lunges and jumping jacks whilst counting in Spanish, French and multiples of 3. We like to use every opportunity available to learn!
You can listen to us on the radio below. Stay watching for the behind the scenes video and our educational squats, too!
Today we paused to remember all those who lost their lives in war.
Armistice Day is on 11 November and is also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.
All year groups took part in a special Remembrance Day assembly and participated in the two minute silence this morning. Pupils in the Junior School also made some lovely poppy art to create a mural. The red poppy is a symbol of both remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
