Anti-Bullying Week and Odd Socks Day

In recent assemblies we have been preparing for Anti-Bullying Week 2023. We always start this special week by joining in with Odd Socks Day. We wear odd socks to show that we are proud of what makes us all different, as well as the things we have in common. We don’t just wait for one week a year to discuss the topic of bullying, but it’s a great time to discuss how we treat each other and how we like to be treated, as well as the best methods to prevent bullying, or to spot it and stop it!

Harvest Thanksgiving

In assemblies this week we talked about harvest time.

We always donate to the Chelmsford Foodbank at this time of year, to help people who might not find it as easy as many of us to buy all the food they need.

It’s a time of year when Christians thank God for the food they have.

We might not all thank God, but there are lots of people we can thank.

In assembly we thought about all those people…

  • Our parents and carers who cook for us obviously.
  • Jackie and the school kitchen team of course!
  • What about the farmers and fishermen and women?
  • The bakers and butchers?
  • Don’t forget the delivery drivers and shop workers!

What favourite foods are you thankful for and who do you want to say thank you to?
