Many thanks to all those of you who were able to join us at All Saints Church on Monday afternoon for our Harvest Celebration. We appreciate you finding the time to support us on these occasions and a massive ‘thank you’ to the many volunteers who walked with us to church; it was great to have you with us! I’m sure you’ll agree that the singing was beautiful and our readers did us proud! In addition, it has been lovely to see how well supported the end of topic presentations have been this week. Thank you, again, for finding the time to visit classrooms to discover the vast amount of learning the children have been exposed to this half term! We are grateful for the huge amount of parental support we benefit from at Summercroft.
Our first week back after half term is Arts Week, which this year is all about Armistice Day to celebrate the centenary of the end of World War I. Over the week, children will take part in lots of arts activities, including music, dance, drama and art, which revolve around this theme. To kickstart the topic, we’ll be watching a fantastic video on the CBeebies website which will enable us to understand how war can affect both people and the land around us. All the activities over the week will build on this, leading towards a piece of writing that will give the children the opportunity to use all of their learning. We’ll also be carrying out ‘Stop and Remember’ activities at 11 o’clock each day, as well as looking out for children who carry out ‘Acts of Kindness’. Children that have particularly impressed us with their caring actions towards others will be celebrated in a special Golden Folder assembly on Friday. It promises to be an enjoyable and thought-provoking week.
Finally, I should like to wish you all a very restful half term break with your families and look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday 5th November at 8:50.
With all best wishes,
