Step up to the plate food campaign for Primary schools
There is enough food for everyone, yet 1 person in 10 is hungry.
We found out how the way that food is grown and shared - our global food system - is broken. We took action to tell the government to keep the promises they made at COP26. We are calling on the government to keep the poorest communities at the heart of its decisions.

Children in Year 1/2 have recently been looking at the story of The Jolly Postman. This week they had the opportunity of writing letters home to their families. They were then able to walk to the local postbox in small groups to post and send their letters home! What a lovely surprise for their families!
As part of our PSHE and RE we thought about how to protect our environment ahead of the G8 summit. We wanted to our Prime Minister to know that we are watching our world leaders. We used the Cafod campaign "The eyes of the World are on us" "Dear Prime Minister, are you protecting our planet? The eyes of the world are watching you."
Mental Health Awareness Week 12th May
Our children have been thinking about their mental health and wellbeing using the theme of nature. In Years 1 and 2 they have been going outside each morning; observing the world around them, listening to birdsong and using this time to talk about what they can see and hear and how they are feeling. We have noticed that this opportunity has really benefitted the children. Throughout the school we have been using our outside areas for prayer time, for reading and for drawing…
Children in ks2 took part in a live Parliament online workshop. The children took part in discussions, questions and found out lots of information about how Parliament works. This was led by MPS within the houses of Parliament and gave the children a great opportunity to find out how our government works.
It also fitted in well with our PSHE theme of preparing to play an active role as citizens.
Following on from this we joined in with UK school parliament week where children across the school took part in activities to further our knowledge.
ks1. considered our local community. We drew maps of where we live and thought about the problems we encounter; people not picking up dog poo, parking, roads closed that people still drive along and rubbish were some of the ideas.
Ks2 also thought about their communities and wrote letters to our local MP.
As a school we took part in " odd socks" day as part of anti bullying week in November 2021. This is to celebrate our individuality as we are all different and unique.
In November 2021 the whole school had a talk from Vernon the Firefighter. We learnt how to stay safe and what to do if there is a fire as well as learning about what firefighters do. The message the children want to pass to parents is " In the event of fire : GET OUT, STAY OUT, and CALL 999"
The children have been working alongside the local Care home to help out and celebrate National Grandparents Day. They made these cards and completed some other activities to interact with the residents
