OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Thank you to Mrs Morris for organising the Operation Christmas Child project and to everyone who was able to make a contribution.
We were able to deliver a total of 56 boxes to the organization. It is wonderful to know that 56 children around the world will experience the delight of receiving a gift this year.
Sending gifts to others develops our Fruit of The Spirit. A focus on sharing love and joy around the world helps the children at The Queen Anne to understand that they are able to make a difference to the lives of others around the world and see themselves as agents of change.
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
― Mother Teresa
The school gathered together in the hall for our Remembrance Service on Friday 10TH November
. The children thought about the significance of the poppy as a symbol and gave their thoughts to the service and sacrifice given by people in the past and today.
Thank you to
Mrs Warburton for leading the service of Remembrance and to all the children
and staff who created our outdoor poppy display.
NATIONAL ANTI-BULLING WEEK
As part of National Anti-Bullying Week, the children discussed behaviour and relationships in school.
Each class thought about what behaviour is expected, what bullying is and what we can do if we are worried about bullying. Everyone thought about The Queen Anne expectations of Ready, Respectful and Safe.
We were fortunate to have two visitors to school to support our learning this week.
PC Bullock joined our Y3 and Y4 children to share his PC Ben books which have a central theme of inclusion. The children reflected on and discussed the events in the book and the impact of events on the characters in the stories.
Mr Jackson, a semi-professional footballer, led a games session with the children and talked about the behaviour required to be a sportsperson.
Thank you to both Mr Jackson and PC Bullock for taking
the time to support the children’s understanding of appropriate behaviour and
inclusion of all.
Thanks to QAPAFA, we had some very special visitors to school this week.
The children were delighted to meet the reindeers and to discover lots of facts about how reindeers live, grow and survive.
It was a wonderful for the children to have to meet and to feed the reindeers.
life-long memories were made and the visit provided a magical start to the
Christmas season in school.
Earlier in the month, the FS and Y1 children met with local author Rhian Lynette.
She shared her book ‘Goose and Bear’ with the children, which is a tale about friendship, kindness and bravery.
The children had an opportunity to ask lots of question about the theme of the book and about the life of an author.
It was an engaging and exciting way to develop the children’s love of reading and writing and develop an appreciation that they, too, could be an author one day.
