Thank you to everybody who donated money for children in need. The children looked fantastic in their own clothes and we had lots of fun making Pudsey cakes and split pin Pudsey bears.
This afternoon, Year 2 have been learning all about the importance of Remembrance Day. We have learnt that every year, we mark the end of World War 1 and honour all of the fallen on the 11th day of the 11th month. The children have produced some beautiful writing and have drawn their own poppies. Leyton has also brought in a fantastic poppy that he created this week during his Boys Brigade session. Well done children. I’m sure that on Sunday at 11am you will hold your two minute silence remembering all of the soldiers who have died.
After much discussion, we found that Guy Fawkes and the King could have handled their situation in a better, more peaceful way.
Today we agreed that talking our problems through with others is the best solution to any problem.
Sandford Hill, along with our Stoke 6 school partners recently took part in the Sign 2 Sing event. The children learnt a new song, as well as accompanying sign language. All of the children really enjoyed the challenge, and produced a fantastic performance.
Well done to all involved!
Year 2 are really enjoying our special cultural diversity focus this week. Yesterday we spent the morning learning all about the different cultures in and around our local area. We learnt about mining in the Potteries, the art of lithographing, traditional British culture, the different religions followed in Britain and the different types of clothing worn throughout Britain . This was all then followed by a traditional British lunch – fish and chips!
Just a few pictures of year 2 enjoying their time learning about the different cultures in Britain. What a lovely and informative morning!
Well what a busy day!
We went into the Hall for a culture and diversity workshop, there was so much to see and do. From dressing up to discovering all about flags! Coal miners lamps to hold and pottery to share!
Thank you to all the adults involved and our school council.
Tomorrow we’re painting plates in the style of Emma Bridgewater, after an oatcake picnic.
