Message From CEO – 23 February 2020
Tomorrow is the start of our new half term, an opportunity to learn, enjoy and share together, to build further on the wonderful events and achievements evident each week across our Trust. There are wonderful successes happening in every classroom, school, Hub every day and it is a pleasure to share these with you.
Tomorrow we have the opportunity to take the next step in our development – we take this together with ambition for every child in our Trust.
Bristol Museum was the visit destination for Apple Class at Batheaston Church School. The pupils engaged well and enjoyed handling the various fossils.
The school are also proud to introduce their new School Eco Team who will be setting their priorities and aims for the year.
As part of All Saints Church School’s instruction/recipe writing, Class 5 made Pottage. The children prepared the ingredients, weighed the amounts, started to write their instructions and studied the different varieties of Pottage eaten in the 17th Century. They were amazed that they could cover 4 different lessons and a range of objectives in one morning. The Class enjoyed the vegetable pottage as well as the staff. A special thank you to the families who supplied ingredients and to the adult helpers for their time and support with this activity.
If you too would like to make this, they followed a version of Pottage from the website:
Both Batheaston and St John & St Vigor Church School have been participating in Safer Internet Day this week.
After reading The Harmonica by Tony Johnson, pupils at St Stephen’s Church School spent the afternoon listening to music by Schubert, writing about his life and drawing pictures in the style of the illustrator Ron Mazellan.
This week Collective Worship at Kingshill Church School was led by Megan, Holley, Esther and Ellie. It was on the theme of Peace. It was well planned and presented and gave a strong message.
Year 6 pupils from Kingshill and Court De Wyck Church Schools visited the Life Skills Centre in Bristol, the children had a great time and learnt lots of life lessons during their visit.
Despite the dreadful weather, Diamond and Topaz Classes braved a visit to Noah’s Ark Farm.
Year 4 at St Michael’s Church School showed off their battle skills, and of course the usual OPAL playtimes were had – den building, litter picking and tyre towers!
Take a moment at some point this week, consider what you achieve together each and every week for the children across our Trust. It is quite inspiring.
