In our school community a number of different languages are spoken by the children and their families. In the Nursery, to celebrate this diversity, we choose a different language each month to focus on. The language of the month for November is Spanish. The children have thoroughly enjoyed listening to stories read in Spanish by two of the children’s parents. We have also learnt how to count and say some simple phrases.
Form 5 performed their Victorian assembly last Friday. They worked hard learning their lines, practising the songs and dances. They enjoyed singing ‘Food Glorious Food’ and ‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’.
This week has been Kindness week. Each class has carried out ‘Acts of Kindness’ each day, designed odd socks to support the ‘All different, all equal’ motto and have taken part in various activities throughout the week.
Each class had a mindfulness session with Ms Stanley-Carol where they learnt about the link between colours and feelings, the importance of breathing consciously as well as creating their own feelings jar.
We wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the families who supported The Christmas box appeal. This year CBPPS collected 180 boxes which is a new record for the school. Thank you so much for your generosity.
On Friday 10th November, Chiswick and Bedford commemorated Remembrance Day with an assembly led by Father Edward. A special wreath was carried into the hall and poems were read by Forms 2 and 6. All the children observed a one minute silence.
The nursery children have been learning about Remembrance Day. They listened carefully to the story ‘Where the poppies now grow’ and created their own poppy using various artistic mediums. Mrs Freeman kindly brought in some First and Second World War medals that belonged to her father and grandfather. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at them and then designed their own medals.
Reception, Forms 1, 2 and 3 were transported into an underwater world with the help of Ash from Perform. Their mission was to find the precious pearl. The children enjoyed dancing and miming their way through the exciting magical adventure.
