October is Black History Month. Please talk to your children about Mr Anderson’s assembly today. Brian Kerr led the assembly. He is a former professional table tennis player who is currently involved with a charity, Bounce Alzheimer’s Therapy (BAT), as a coach. This charity uses table tennis to help the memory of those who suffer from the Alzheimer’s. Brian inspired all our children and staff today. He ended his assembly with a poem he wrote:

My Hero

Heroes are exceptional individuals

Unique special and significant

Created to care cherish comfort protect

Provide for their families and loved ones

They aspire to do the very best

And be the very best to be exceptional

Going the extra mile with every conceivable opportunity

They give everything of themselves

Yet desires or seeks no form of glory or reward in return

Does such a hero exist in our modern society?

Where would you find such an individual?

Yes, such a hero did exist

He was my dad

He was most loving noble gentle supportive kind

Courageous courteous and passionate

He set the standards, became an example

And made a difference

I will walk proudly and stand tall

I will remain victorious

Treading in the footsteps

Embracing the memories he left behind

Dad you will not be forgotten but forever will be remembered

Your memories will live on triumphantly

The world knew little of such a hero

But will be told

We will sing songs of victory

And every day will be joyous and glorious

As we remember you each day

So sleep on my hero sleep and take your rest

Your story will forever be told

We will embraced it and remembered that a great hero

Once dwell among us

Year 6 at Tolmers

Year 6 have come to the end of their residential trip to Tolmers Camp. They had a fun- packed week full of problem solving challenges and team- building activities. The staff at the site commended our children for their good behaviour and also for their positive attitudes and good spirits. They showed determination and resilience. Some children faced their fears whilst abseiling and all had an amazing time. We are extremely proud of them.

I would like to take his opportunity to firstly thank my great team of teachers who accompanied the children and secondly thank all the staff who popped in every evening to play games and have fun with children.

The Year 6 children who did not go to camp had an equally exciting week. The week commenced with Mr Statham’s Challenge. Here the children were asked to design superheroes that represented our values. They simultaneously created comics.

Then Mrs Goumal filled the air with even more creativity and supported the children to create ‘animals in the walls’. Have a look at their creations. This art accompanies a book Year 6 has been studying called The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman. The children used Papier-mâché and then painted their magnificent creations.

Creative Maths

Mrs Colocassis has been busy estimating and measuring with Year 4. Maths was alive in our school this week, even in the corridors.
