On Tuesday, the whole school had assemblies and workshops from the NSPCC about speaking out and staying safe. The children learnt about the different types of abuse and all they different adults they can tell if something has happened. The children were all very engaged in the workshop and presented sensible ideas.
To begin our new English unit, Willow Class had some very unusual visitors come into the classroom today! Who can you spot in the pictures?
Luckily, Traction Man came along to save the day!
Look at the amazing writing Willow Class are doing! We have all created our own magical potions and written instructions on how to make them. We made sure we remembered to use imperatives and time conjunctions to make our instructions really clear!
Celebrating all the different cultures our school represents is one of our favourite things to do!
On Wednesday we had a day full of dress up, learning about different places and eating delicious food!
Each class did a country-focus study and created fact files about the culture; they also created beautiful art work that the children were able to take home for their parents!
Elm looked at India, Cedar looked at Jamaica, Pine looked at Ghana, Willow looked at Australia, Olive looked at Japan and Oaks and Acorns looked at England.
After school, we all had so much fun eating foods from other countries, putting on a fashion show and dancing with our friends and family.
Thank you to all the parents that brought in food and joined us after school, we really appreciate it!
This week the whole of St Anne’s have had lots of fun taking part in Art Week!
This years artist that all classes have been learning about is Romero Britto. Each class have been researching the artist and creating their own pieces of artwork in the style of his work!
Sewing has been our key skill focus for Art Week, each class has been taking part in their own sewing activity. Sewing has proven to be very popular and many children have asked if we can do more sewing! Elm Class are now planning to make some purses now they have mastered the running stitch!
Here are the winners from the artist at home competition, it was so tricky choosing the winners as there were so many amazing creations in each class. Well done to everyone who created a piece of artwork linked to their cultural heritage!

Today was our wonderful Harvest service in the St.Anne’s church; a lovely service that is completely pupil led. Well done to all the children who read or shared art work, they did a fantastic job.
This year, as we have supported for many years now, our Harvest donations will be going to the Ace of Clubs- thank you to all the parents who donated!
The order of service:
Joseph, from year 6, did a reading on Thankfulness
Oak, Olive and Willow did a presentation on Sharing
Pine did a presentation on Generosity
The choir sang “Harvest for the World” beautifully
Elm did a presentation on Responsibility
And we finished with Father Gordon receiving our gifts and a blessing.
As a treat for the final week of term, Miss Steward put on a fantastic story time based on the story of Snow White for the whole school. We all enjoyed getting involved, acting the story out and seeing the amazing scene that had been created!
This week, St.Anne’s was lucky enough to have visitors all the way from China. We did an assembly presentation on our value of Perseverance and gave the gifts to remember St.Anne’s by.
This week Willow Class went on a trip to the London Transport Museum! We went by boat and spotted famous buildings we have learnt about. At the museum we got to go on different vehicles from different times throughout history. Which one was your favourite?
This half term, Willow Class have been learning about the artist Lowry. This week we have been using all the skills we have learnt to create our artwork for the art exhibition this week. Can you see all the matchstick people? What are they doing?
