On that subject, Year 2 led us through a most informative assembly this morning on the same subject which tied in very neatly with our current assembly theme ‘Beliefs and Ideas’. We heard about the significant individuals who had inspired them most during this unit of work. Added to this the children researched and wrote their pieces independently. I was so impressed with the end result – it was truly wonderful to see and hear them speaking with such poise and eloquence.
Given our assembly topic this half term, it is not surprising we have spoken about Queen Elizabeth II ruling for longer than any other Monarch in British history and, more particularly, the fact that she is known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service. We are excited for the forthcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations and, with this in mind, I have set the children the task of creating a portrait of the Queen Elizabeth II to be displayed in our hall. The children may choose whatever media they wish to use for this project – the only stipulation is that the pieces of artwork should be no bigger than A3 in size. With Easter holidays soon upon us, this is the perfect opportunity to get creative and to mark this momentous, historical occasion. All entries should be returned to school on Friday 22 April. Please look out for my letter about this on SchoolPost.
Our school councillors arranged for everyone to come to school today wearing an item of red in support of Red Nose Day / Comic Relief. What fun it has been – we have had bow ties, neck ties, socks, jumpers, red skirts, shirts and even red hair. Thank you so much for getting right behind our fundraising efforts once more!
We look forward to welcoming you to school for the Open Classroom Visits next Tuesday (22 March) – morning Kindergarten children at 11.30am and the rest of the School from 3.00pm (afternoon Kindergarten children, Reception, Years 1 and 2.
Have a wonderful Easter break!
