This Friday, as part of our 'Feel Good Friday' to support wellbeing, our school all wore 'Wear it Red' to help raise awareness of racism and to support 'stamping it out'.
Each class focused further on the importance of equality and diversity (to end our Diversity and Inclusion Week in school). We celebrated why we were all wearing red and the importance behind always treating each other fairly.
The children really enjoyed the day and of course they were fully supportive of the important messages learnt during the day (and week).
A BIG thank you to Mrs Longden who organised our school's Harvest Festival today. Parents, children and the wider school community have been incredibly generous in their efforts to collect as much Harvest Festival food as possible! The display in the entrance of school was phenomenal! Well done all!
Thank you to our Governors, Mrs Milner, Mrs Riley and Mrs Rose who joined the children and staff in celebrating today! We enjoyed an amazing assembly, learning all about the Harvest Festival and what it means to different people across the world.
Our Harvest donations this year will be shared with our local Salvation Army and also with our in-school food bank, to help support our more vulnerable families, on an ongoing basis.
Well done TEAM Park Street and what an EPIC Harvest Samba celebration performance!
Today, Aliza and Zunaira have fund raised for our school! They have put on a 'wear it autumnal day' for our school, as part of our Harvest Festival, to raise money for a table tennis table in school. This 'wear it autumnal day' is just the start of the girls' efforts in raising money for this cause, which they are incredibly invested in.
We look forward to their money raisers moving forward and commend them for the efforts and enthusiasm moving forwards - £90+ already girls! Well done TEAM Park Street!
This week in our cultural significant person study whole school assembly, children learnt about Dwayne Johnson and what a significant person he is today. They learnt about his early life growing up living within a wrestling family and community and about how hard he worked for his successes. They read and discussed some key quotes from Dwayne and also watched a clip showing him speak at the celebration launch for his star on the Walk of Fame. They learnt that 'it is nice to be important, but more important to be nice'! What an inspiring person to learn more about, especially in a week when the golden rule is 'do work hard'!
Talk to your child about the importance of having a good, positive, kind and loving attitude towards others and working hard to achieve success.
A huge well done to the children who achieved 100% attendance last school year! They enjoyed a special lunch out at Pizza Hut today as a reward! Mrs Hitchens (PSA), Mrs Green (Attendance Lead) and myself all had an amazing time with the children - unlimited drinks, pizza and salad! The children, of course, all behaved impeccably well and had excellent manners towards the staff at Pizza Hut. We had lots of fun and laughed a lot!
Well done to: Raine, Cody-Jay, Jenson, Jamie; Charlie, Heath, Trafford, Aliza, Zunaira and Lewis! Go for it again this year!
A BIG well done to Team CH and Team DB for their strong attendance rates last week!
Team CH - 96%
Team DB - 98.6%
Whole school - 93.5%
Remember our target is 97% - let's go for it this week Park Street!
We had a superb fire drill practice in school today! Our school team did a fantastic job - we managed to evacuate the entire school in 1 minute and 46 seconds! The children were silent and so sensible as they took the drill very seriously. Team CB and Team JF were our winners and will enjoy some extra /Incredible Me!' time for their fantastic efforts.
A huge well done too to our younger Nursery and Reception children in school, as it was their first ever fire drill! They did brilliantly and were not phased at all! Well done Team Park Street!
Today in school we have held an 'Online Safety' assembly, where children have been spoken to about the importance of keeping safe online. We discussed the importance of keeping personal information to yourself and always speaking to an adult if you feel a situation is not appropriate. We also discussed how we can block people if they do or say unkind things online. We stressed the importance of not being on apps and games which we shouldn't be due to age restraints and about following the law of the land.
We also encouraged the children to always feel comfortable in school and let a member of staff know if they feel unsafe - all of the children nodded and said they feel very safe in school. They all have a hand on their classroom door, where they have identified 5 people in school that they would go to if they needed help and support.
Mrs Hitchens has asked me to pass on a message about how the Salvation Army are going to be supporting families of Park Street. Their support includes the storage of school uniform and a swap shop. Here are a few details passed on from Mrs Hitchens:
Team EO are having a fantastic morning! Miss Overton has organised for the children to enjoy a fabulous learning experience with a visiting Ambulance! The children are having so much fun learning about what an Ambulance does and how it helps people. They have had lots of hands-on fun, sitting in the driver's seat, honking the horn and setting the sirens off, as well as laying on the stretcher and having a go in the wheel chair. I am sure our Diana would make an outstanding Ambulance driver when she is older and Jack would be a very helpful and caring Ambulance person.
Thank you to Miss Overton for organising this enjoyable event as part of the 'All About Me' theme for this half term - inspiring the children from the very start!
