We are coming up to Remembrance Sunday which is even more special this year because its 100 years since the ending of WWI. The children in the juniors have taken part in a number of workshops facilitated by the “ One Day” company. This has given the children a real insight into what a soldiers life was like at this time. The children have also been doing some work in class about this, it is really important that all of our children remember that brave men, (some only really boys) gave up their tomorrows for our today.
Also we had a visit from Councillor Vince Maple on Thursday who came to visit our School Council. The children asked him lots of interesting questions about Citizenship and other British Values. We are really grateful for him coming to visit St Michael’s and to Mrs Collins for organising this
Year 1 had a fantastic trip to Rochester to the museum on Wednesday which was made extra exciting by the fact that the children took the train to get there. 60 children on a train is no mean feat but we did it and the children had some lovely experiences.
Next week is Anti Bullying week and again there will be workshops and special assemblies for the children to take part in. The theme for Anti Bullying Week 2018 is “ choose respect”. On the first day of the week ie Monday 12th November the Children will be invited to wear odd socks into school. It is a national celebration and an opportunity for children to have fun, be themselves and spread the awareness of the core values Anti Bullying Week promotes (it’s good to be different and everyone is unique).
Next Friday is Children in Need so as last year, we can come in wearing something spotty for a donation for Pudsey.
So lots going on and lots to remember– odd socks on Monday, spots on Friday!!!
Have a good weekend
Mrs Kathy Sexton
