Remembrance Day: There But Not There

11 November 2019

Our assembly featuring the Tommy statue.

We were joined today for an armistice assembly by representatives from Bedworth Lions they brought with them a full-sized Tommy, entitled 'There but not There'.

The full size statue commemorates the fallen of WW1 and is yet another reminder of the fact that the town has continually observed Armistice Day every year since 1921.

The Tommy is being taken around schools, places of worship and community centres in Bedworth, Bulkington, Exhall and surrounding villages.

Denise Musson who joined us and is project lead for Bedworth Lions said: "We will be holding drawing, poetry writing and story writing competitions at each venue, based on the Tommy and his possible life before and during the war. Bedworth Lions will donate small prizes. However, it is planned that we will in the future, produce a book called 'The Bedworth Tommies', using all the best competition entries. Proceeds from sales of the book will be given to the Armistice Parade Committee and other local charities working with the armed forces."

Democracy in Action in Nursery

5 June 2017

Voting in Nursery.

The nursery children have been thinking about British Values.

On Monday at 11.00am all of the children observed a minutes silence in respect of those affected by the recent atrocities around the country. They made all of the staff extremely proud as they sat quietly for the full minute (it’s not easy when you’re 3).

The children shared their thoughts on what they had heard on the news. They related their feelings to their own experiences and suggested that people should 'be good, and not put their sisters in the bin' and 'do the right thing'.

On Wednesday the children have been learning about voting. They had the choice between toast and crumpets at snack time. Each child had a token and made their choice. It was a close call and some of the children were disappointed but crumpets won and were enjoyed by all!

Performance Poetry Afternoon

6 January 2017

One of our poetry performances.

On Friday afternoon 6th January the whole school gathered together in the hall to hear each class perform a piece of poetry.

Reception class started the afternoon off by reciting 'Hickory Dickory Dock'. The delivery was a little unusual; the class was split into groups with each taking turns to say their lines. All the children spoke out with confidence and did very well; they set the bar high for the rest of the school.

Every class brought something a little different to their performance, Year 4 added a little bit of drama, Year 6 some dramatic pauses to the 'Caged Bird' and Year 5 some whispered repetition to add dramatic affect. It was an enjoyable afternoon for everyone.
