Many thanks to all those who came and supported the Parents Association Christmas Shopping evening on 18th November. A great time was had by all, with lots of lovely gift and craft stalls and yummy cakes. We enjoyed carols from the church choir and got into the festive spirit. We were delighted to raise £353 towards purchasing a defibrillator for the school.
See more pictures here and find out more about more about the Parents Association here.
Keep an eye on our Highlights section soon for a full gallery of Remembrance activities but for now here is a quick picture of the KS2 Remembrance Assembly and a link to a beautiful CBeebies animation that you might have spotted on TV.
It was lovely to have Reception classes join us for our Friday assembly for the first time last week. Larch and Laurel contributed brilliantly to the celebrations.
Well done too to the Hedgehogs house team for being at the top of the leader board at the end of last half term. Children in Hedgehogs across the school have shown the school values 5316 times since September! Amazing. Will they still have the lead at Christmas and get the end of term treat? It is still very close between the four teams!
Thank you too to the Year 5 & 6 pupils who read us war poetry during reflection time to focus us back on the learning about remembrance day that is going on across the school. We look forward to hearing more from Mrs Moston about her trip to Flanders fields.
Thank you to the Year 6 pupils selling poppies (and poppy stickers for younger pupils) at break times. All to raise money for http://www.britishlegion.org.uk/. We are looking forward to our Remembrance activities next week. At this time of year pupils at Lawford Mead always make us proud by showing our value of respect.
Who can leave a comment below to say why they are wearing their poppy and what this time of year means to them…?
