Odd Socks Day

What a fabulous array of Odd Socks we had in school today! This is a day to celebrate the fact that we are all unique. It is a key part of Anti Bullying Week.
Here are some of the year 5/6 Odd socks on display in the hall during their Active 30 session.

Remembrance Day

All the children and staff took part in a minute silence at 11 am today. We are very proud of Arthur in Year 6, who played the Last Post and Reveille on his cornet to mark the time.

Curriculum & Wellbeing Evening November

Thank you to all the parents who came along to the Curriculum & Wellbeing Evening last Thursday.
It was really great to see so many of you and to be able to share how we teach the different subjects here at Cholsey. The pupil leadership team reps were fantastic ambassadors for the school.

A big thanks also to Annie Evans from Place2Be on her informative presentation on anxiety. We will put a copy of this on our website as soon as possible.Thanks also to Andrew Lloyd from 123ICT for his talk on Internet Safety.

Here are some photos of the evening.

Active playtimes!

To help the children achieve their 60 active minutes per day, we have purchased some new playground equipment. The children have thoroughly enjoyed playing with the equipment and it is great so see the whole school being active during the school day. The new equipment includes: wobble boards, bucket stilts, a quad rebounder, basketballs, lacrosse scoops and balls, skipping ropes and ankle skips.

We also purchased some giant active games so that our Sports Leaders can run some new and exciting games for children during lunchtimes. The giant bowling set has is going to be a huge success and we can’t wait to see the children in the boogie break zone dancing to their favourite tunes!

Anti-Bullying CARE Ambassadors

Today I was privileged to take 5 of our CARE ambassadors to Wantage Primary School to undertake some training on how to be an effective Anti-Bullying Ambassador. I was so proud of how conscientious they were and feel sure that they are going to do a great job in their role this year.

Next week is ANTI BULLYING WEEK and the CARE ambassadors will be organising an assembly and various other things in school to raise awareness of bullying.

Year 3&4 at the Earth Trust

Firstly, we went on the bus to Earth Trust. We used long nets to go pond dipping. We found lots of insects including water boatmen, tadpoles, dragonfly nymphs and leeches. Then we went on a walk to the lock and weir. It was very loud and splashing everywhere. We enjoyed looking at the sheep too! The final activity involved sketching the view from Wittenham Clumps. We also enjoyed eating our packed lunches. We loved doing the pond dipping and sketching but weren’t as keen on all of the walking.
