Year 5 Litter Pick
In October, the whole year group took to the streets of Weston Village to help make it a cleaner place! Look at how much rubbish we collected in an hour!
Wild Wednesday in 5SD
Following on from last term’s outside cooking class, 5SD have been whittling with willow.
After learning the basic skills we have created beautiful Christmas presents for the mantel piece at home.
Archie Project Update
5T have been visiting Oakfield and Winfield Lodge care homes since September. The children have been sharing their learning, experiences, stories, games and more with the residents and have bonded with them over the last few months.
Some of the girls bonded with a particularly shy lady over their love of tigers. This resident would often stay in her room and not socialise; by December we would see her almost every time we visited. The girls decided to sponsor a tiger for the resident as an act of kindness. Below are some images from some of our visits.
Operation Christmas Shoe-box for Samaritan’s Purse 2019
This year we asked each class to work together to fill a shoe-box with items for the Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoe-box appeal.
The children were very enthusiastic about this and through amazing, generous contributions from children, parents and staff, we were able to send 58 shoe-boxes from WASPS and 6 shoe-boxes from AAA. We even had some extra contributions which we sent to the appeal for the organisation to make some other shoe-boxes.
The boxes were collected on Friday 15th November 2019.
The Archie Project 2019-2020
This week, we had our introductory assembly for the Archie Project. The children learned a little bit about what they will be getting up to this year when they undertake the project. Some of the children got dressed up as scarecrows and we met some of the carers from the care homes – as well as a resident!
Our Harvest collection for the Bath Foodbank
Children throughout the school have been busy collecting food to go to the food bank. We are happy to send off lots of items to help those less fortunate than us!
