Well, what a busy week it has been at Seaburn Dene!
As we build up to Anti-Bullying Week and Remembrance Day tomorrow, our school has been a hive of activity. Along with Mrs Taylor, I met the School Council last week, to discuss their thoughts and idea around Anti-Bullying week and in particular - Odd Socks Day (Tuesday.) There were some very considered and thoughtful responses from our school councillors about bullying and each one of them will be giving their own presentation to their class mates tomorrow. Jake and Lucey in Y4 kicked off slightly earlier than others and impressed Mr Ashton with their confident and mature talk to their class mates.
Yr 5 seized the mantle to sell poppies and showed great teamwork and self-organisation to ensure every class was able to buy their poppies - in good time. This work will continue tomorrow, so we can continue supporting the work of the British Legion.
Elsewhere - The Lake Poets and This Little Bird continue their work on developing a school song with Yr 5, our England Masters hockey coach Robin was in school working with Yr 4, New Springs Church talked to the whole school about Respect (after singing assembly) - our core value of the week and Skinny Pigs launched their first fitness sessions on Friday morning. Staff were visiting other schools sharing children's writing and looking at school environment. It was certainly busy - as we also welcomed two new children into our school.
This week Mrs Tough and myself will have the pleasure of looking through lots of the children's books and at the level of presentation and the quality of work the children are producing.
Don't forget: Poppies on Remembrance Day (Monday), Odd Socks Day (mentioned above) - Tuesday, Thursday (14th) - non-uniform day, bring a bottle in for our Christmas fayre tombola.
