We Will Remember Them

Thank you to all those who came to the service at Edenthorpe war memorial on Sunday. Our completed art work was on display and much admired! It will now be displayed on the external wall near to church so that people visiting both school and church will see it as they come up the driveway.  Thanks to Asa Dixey, Lottie Houlihan, Logan Jones and Felicity Ali who read their writing and led the prayers beautifully.


A busy week in school

Every week in school is busy but this week has been more action packed than ever!

On Monday all the children took part in our Science day where they spent the afternoon experimenting with biscuits! They were then able to share their findings with each other at our whole school assembly.


This week is anti bullying week and the theme is ‘Choose Respect’. Every class in school is having lessons linked to this theme and collectively we will be creating a new display on this theme which will be positioned in the corridor leading from the hall to the shared area, where all the children can see it every day.  At Canon Popham we talk to children about anti bullying regularly and remind them to speak out if they need help. On Monday it was Odd Socks Day, which launched anti bullying week and helped us to remind the children that everyone is unique and difference should be celebrated.


The week finished with Children in Need Day where everyone was encouraged to come to school wearing their pyjamas and to make a donation to Children in Need. We also asked for contributions for filling shoe boxes for our annual Christmas appeal for Operation Christmas Child. Thanks to all those who donated and well done to the children who packed the boxes so thoughtfully.


Christmas Fair

Our Christmas Fair will be held from 3:45 until 5pm on Friday 29th November. We are still looking for volunteers so if you can help in any way please contact the school office. We hope that this evening will be a festive one which families can enjoy, attending our Christmas fair and then moving on to the carols around the Christmas tree event which will be held later that evening by the war memorial.
