“Our Heritage” Celebration

Our first ever ‘Our Heritage’ celebration event, held at Lockleaze Road on Friday evening, was a huge success. Our pupils, their families and friends came along to celebrate each others’ heritages and histories. With more than, 50 languages and 40 nationalities in the school, our diverse cultural backgrounds were represented though music, cultural performances, a fashion show and exhibitions of learning as well as the delicious food served at the Food Festival.  We can’t say a big enough thank you to all who were involved for making it such a joyful and memorable event.

We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Harvest Festival success!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make our Harvest Festival celebration a great success by attending the assemblies, donating food or purchasing goods from our fresh produce sale. We managed to raise a total of £124.50 for Save the Children and all non-perishable foods were collected by North Bristol Foodbank to be donated to families in need across the local area.

 

   

             

Year 6 take over the school!!

Year 6 pupils are acting as head teacher, teachers, teaching assistants, business managers, caretakers, catering assistants and receptionists for the morning. Of course, the teachers stay in class to supervise the year 6 teachers as they help the younger pupils learn during the morning. Here are some images from the start of the morning….

Visit by Elen Caldecott Author of ‘Spooks and Scooters’

As a prize for an outstanding video entry to the Reading Gladiators Challenge, Year 4 Reading Gladiators had lunch with Elen Caldecott author of Spooks and Scooters and Nikki Gamble in the school library.  Year 4 Gladiators had the opportunity to chat to Elen in an informal way and ask questions about being a writer. Some children received signed copies of books from the Marsh Road Mystery series that their parents had ordered. Others took the chance to ask Elen about different books they had read from the Marsh Mystery series.

Elen then led an inspirational session in the hall to a wider audience of Year 4s and 5s. So many children have commented how much they enjoyed talking to a “real writer”!  It was a lovely afternoon and Elen kept her audience spellbound!
