Not only did we have more than 400 rather cute and cuddly teddy bears in school today – but we raised more than £700 for Children in Need through merchandise and donations. Fantastic! Well done everyone and have a lovely weekend.
The children are feeling right at home today as a sea of pyjamas, onesies, dressing gowns and slippers marks this year’s Children in Need event. We’ll keep you posted on how much we have raised.
Our children absolutely loved taking part in the Eltham Lights Up parade last night. There was a huge turn out for the community event which included entertainment, tours around the police and fire stations and of course, the exciting fireworks to the Ride of the Valkyries. Once again, thanks to the staff who supported; Caroline, Honey, Miss Turner and Robbie, and to the children and parents who came along to enjoy themselves.
A group of children had a great day at the Anti-Bullying conference earlier this week. The theme of the day was odd socks and the children worked with the Little Fish Theatre group to explore emotions related to bullying. They also spent time with the prefects from Plumstead Manor and though a lot about cyber bullying, before writing and performing a song with Nathan Timothy. Quite a jam-packed day then!
Our Year 5 children are having an inspiring day at the ATP Tennis Finals at the o2 where the top seeded male players in the world come together to compete in the last tournament of their season. Sadly, world number 1 Rafael Nadal withdrew this morning with an injury – but the children will still get to see the very best of the rest.
