Anti-bullying/E-Safety Launch Week

Anti-Bullying/E-Safety Launch Week will take place next week (16th - 20th November). The theme this year is ‘Make a Noise about bullying’.

The key aim of the week is to allow children to make a noise about bullying. We want to encourage children to identify the signs of bullying and to be able to seek help for themselves or others.

 

Key Stage 2 Harvest

On Friday 16th October, Key Stage 2 attended St Paul's Church in Kewstoke for their Harvest Festival.  It was a lovely service led by Reverend Geoff Eales which reminded us all of the importance of sharing at Harvest time.

 

The generous donations from the children will be split between Food Bank and Somewhere to Go.

 

Well done to all the children for such wonderful singing and thank you to the Governors and Parents who helped make the trip happen.

 

 

Year 3 and 4 Egyptologists

On Monday 28th September Years 3 and 4 visited Bristol Museum and Art Gallery to discover more about the Ancient Egyptians as part of their Learning Theme.

We were treated to a fantastic workshop where we investigated real and replica artefacts from ancient Egypt. By asking questions and making careful observations we were able to work out which people in Egyptian society would have owned the objects. We also explored the Egyptology area and became experts on Egyptian belief, life, death and afterlife.

Thank you to all the adult volunteers who helped and made our trip possible.

 

Poetry Workshops by James Carter

On Tuesday 29th September, Worlebury St Paul’s was visited by poet and guitarist James Carter.  James believes that “poems are the most fun you can have with words” and he certainly proved this with his wonderfully entertaining assemblies for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and his workshops for every class in the school. The children were inspired to write fabulous poems, some of which will be sent to James for him to read and comment on. He has a number of excellent books for children which can be found at the following website:

http://www.jamescarterpoet.co.uk/booksforchildren.html

 Comments from the children:

“He was very inspiring and extremely funny.”

“It was an amazing experience and it really helped me to develop my writing.”

“It was fun and I enjoyed it a lot. I learnt that you can get ideas from everywhere and you always need to keep your mind open.”

 

Governor Vacancies

A successful school is one where everyone works together as a team to provide the children with the opportunity to receive motivational and relevant learning and encouragement to develop their potential.

We have vacancies on our Governing Body for two Parent Governor.  A Parent Governor must be:
