Anti-bullying week 2018
Anti-bullying Week 2018 took the theme 'Choose Respect'.
Mrs Walsh started the week with a whole school assembly about how bullying makes people feel and what children can do if they are being bullied. The children learnt about 'by-standers' and were asked to consider if they had ever seen or heard bullying and what they did about it.
Back in class, the children participated in different activities around the various aspects of bullying at an age appropriate level. They used Philosophy for Children to discuss why people bully, cyber-bullying, how they can show respect and what to do it they are being bullied.
All the children made a helping hand, writing on the names of 5 people who can help them if they are being bullied or are unhappy.
Children in Need 2018
AECPS supported Children in Need today by carrying out many different activities to raise money for this fantastic charity.
The children all wore their own clothes and were encouraged to dress in spots or stripes and wear Pudsey accessories. Some children used their own initiative to design, make and sell badges whilst others opted to have a sponsored silence.
After school, the year five children held their own cake stall whilst the school choir rattled their collection buckets to add to the school’s fundraising total.
The Year 5 and 6 football teams have been in action and triumphed!
The Year 5 and 6 girls team played in a tournament at Wilmslow High School. They were magnificent and their fantastic team spirit was recognised by teachers from other schools. Mr Sacro from WHS talked about respect and they certainly showed that to the other teams and each other. They played a round robin tournament against five other schools and won four out of the five games and overall came 2nd, losing by only two points. They are a credit to the school and showed great teamwork and sportsmanship!
The Year 5 and 6 team also played at Macclesfield Town Football Club in an area tournament led by the club. Joe Holt (coach) took the team and the boys were fantastic and were unbeaten at the event. This team has now reached the regional finals - more details to follow.
Well done to both teams!
Year 3 Autumn Walk
Year 3 went on their science Autumn walk today collecting evidence on how their chosen trees were changing.
They looked at the trees compared to others and carefully observed the leaf shape and colours.
Back in class they were keen to explain their findings!
Year 6 visit Cenotaph
Year 6 visited the cenotaph after watching a BBC Live lesson on WWI. Here they worked with a poet to compose a haiku based on the war.
These will be displayed in the KS2 corridor for everyone to read.
Year 6 also researched some of the names from the cenotaph to find out more details of who they were and what happened to them during the war.
