Thank you from the PTFA
The PTFA would like to pass on their huge gratitude to all the teachers and staff who helped set up, clear up, give donations to and run so many of the stalls. It all helped to make the Fayre such a lovely, festive and smoothly-run event. Overall we have raised somewhere between £1400 and £1500 the official figures will come in shortly.
Highlights were seeing some teenagers and ‘alumni’ helping out with stalls, several new mums volunteer and do their own craft stalls/facepainting etc, and seeing the stunned reaction of the lady who won the staff Christmas hamper (!).
Our new Art Gallery opened on 28.11.19 all the Art work was donated by a Sea Mills resident. The biggest painting is by Karen Edwards who also lives locally.
Our Art gallery will help all our pupils develop their appreciation of art.
Today all the children at Sea Mills Primary School have been treated to a Christmas Panto ‘Cinderella’ by the Rainbow theatre company. We truly hope they all enjoyed the fantastic show.
Year 4 have been learning to play a popular nursery rhyme on the recorder. They performed the piece to parents in their class assembly this week. Check back tomorrow of pictures of their amazing class assembly.
Today a baker visited our reception children and spoke to them all about how they make bread. The children were wowed and we able to feel all the different ingredients that go into bread making. The children asked lots and lots of really thoughtful questions about how bread is made. Why not try baking bread at home this weekend?
Sea Mills took part in Anti-bullying week during the week beginning the 11th November. All children had sessions during the week about anti-bullying and on Tuesday 12th everyone wore odd socks to school! Look at the teachers snazzy fashion statements!
On the 15th of October children from across the school enjoyed a day out at the National Trust property Tyntesfield. We learnt all about life in the stately home and explored the sculptures and climbing equipment in the fantastically wild grounds. Visitors commented on the lovely manners of our pupils!
During the month of October all the children at Sea Mills have been celebrating Diversity. We continuously celebrate diversity but have given it a special focus this month. We have had a range of visitors into school covering topics such as: culture, religions, way of life, traditions, music, food and so much more.
All children have explored the diversity of our local community as well as the world in which we live. We are proud to be a diverse school and live in a diverse world which gives us a beautiful uniqueness that makes everyone an important part of the community.
Our Harvest Celebration included each class sharing their work on ‘World Harvest’. All the children read beautifully and very clearly – well done! We also enjoyed our harvest songs and Vicar John’s special electric experiment. School families have been very generously donating food to be donated to our local food bank. Donations will still be collected until Friday.
Global Climate Strike
Today a group of passionate parents organised and led a march from the park to school with homemade banners and posters to participate in the global climate strike happening across the world today. As children were not able to participate in the school strike, some parents came in to help children make banners for the march yesterday. Today class teachers taught lessons on climate change and discussed the reasons why students, young people and adults are going on strike and protesting. It was lovely to do what we can to feel part of a significant global event here in Sea Mills!
