School Worship AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH

At this time, we are adapting to the 'new normal' and finding new ways to ensure that important events are still celebrated by our whole school community.

Children in Need

On Appeal Day, Friday 13th November we asked the children to donate some money to wear a ‘sporty’ Pudsey themed outfit as each class watched and joined in with the final moments of Joe Wick’s 24 hour workout challenge, which we lived streamed.

We also ran a Pudsey Competition where the children designed a sport's kit for Pudsey.  The most creative entries from each Key Stage won a prize, as well as there being a winner from each class and even some special mentions. 

Remembrance Day 

On Wednesday 11th November we marked Remembrance Day through a Whole School Virtual Worship led by Ms Jobling during which we marked the end of our two minute silence by listening to Mrs Lock play the last post.

Prior to this, each class had the opportunity to support the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal by donating money to purchase a range poppy products.  We realised that more than ever this year, every poppy counted as the usual ways of raising donations would not be possible.

As we were unable to make and present our class poppy wreaths in the usual way the whole school contributed to our remembrance memorial placed outside of school, so that the whole school community could see it and reflect on this important day.

Harvest

On Tuesday 6th October we celebrated Harvest Festival.  It was our first Virtual Whole School Worship led by Ms Jobling.  Each class collected donations of food to be shared between Medway Food Bank and Caring Hands and we were overwhelmed by the support and generosity shown by all of our families.
