Celebrating Chinese New Year
MLK were incredible role models once again this week as they helped lead our whole school Chinese New Year craft day. They assisted the younger children with making dragons, fortune cookies, lanterns and lucky fish! We are so proud of how supportive you are and with your help, our day was such a success!
The KS2 choir and some of MLK class went to the local care home to sing carols for some of the residents at the end of term. They took with them a card for every resident and member of staff in the home that had been made by one of the children at our school from reception all the way up to year 6. We hope they like them! The children were great ambassadors and sang so well. It was wonderful to see them spread some christmas cheer and we wish everyone at Polebrook nursing home a Merry Christmas and Happy new year!
Thank you to all who attended our Harvest Festival at Polebrook Church last week.
It was a wonderful opportunity for each class to share their Harvest performance, as well as raise donations for the local food bank.
Martin Luther King Class introduced our Harvest service of the song "Let's Harvest" which they also performed using Sign Language.
Frida Kahlo and David Attenborough Class shared their own version of “Old MacDonald Grew a Farm” and Stevie Wonder Class performed an African Harvest Song called “Tue Tue”.
The children took part in a Remembrance craft day this year, creating beautiful poppies from recycled bottles (thank you for the donations!) and other craft activities. There was a wonderful display outside school. On Remembrance Day, the children stood outside of school, in front of our thoughtful display and took part in a one minute silence to remember those that fought in wars of the past and those that are fighting in wars around the world today. We then read some prayers which MLK had written from our School Prayer book.
Children in Need
Once again, Polebrook raised money for the incredible Charity - Children in Need and this year we broke records!
All children took part in the "Spotacular day" by dressing up, running the Children in Need shop, hosting games and ending the day with a whole school disco.
Also, as a school, we took part in Joe Wicks' "Bearpees" Challenge. We needed to complete over 1000 Bearpees throughout Children in Need week and would you believe it... we doubled this and completed over 2000 Bearpees!
Finally, with so many children fundraising themselves outside of school, raising money on the day and completing our challenges... we raised over £600 as a school - a staggering total!!!!!
Thank you so much to all our parents for supporting and helping us to raise money for a charity that does so much.
