- Working with local police on 'Staying Safe' - including providing a meeting for parents of local schools on keeping their child safe on the internet.
- Providing art work for the Food Festival and Horticultural show.
- Entering local competitions, such as NISA art competition and the Police poster competition.
- Making a poppy for each person on the war memorial ready for the Remembrance Service.
- Making our own jam to sell at Broadway Late Night shopping.
- Providing a Christmas tree and decorations for the Christmas Festival at the United Reform Church.
Remembering the Soldiers
Our older children made poppies for St. Michael’s Church to display near the War Memorial during the Remembrance Service on Sunday 8th November. They made a beautiful clay poppy for each person that died during the war from our local area (see photo above). There was a short service at 10.45am by the War Memorial (15 minutes or so) near the village green and the children placed a clay poppy in the ground as each name was read out in memory.
All of the children provided entries for the Horticultural Show. A range of entries are displayed at school, including one of the winning entries.
Children in each class were challenged to create large pieces of art, inspired by work such as Matisse's 'The Snail' and Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. The committee made a financial donation to the school as thanks, and the art work is now on display in school.
