Throughout the school we have been paying particular attention to Remembrance this week. Miss Jackson's class gave a lovely assembly where we paid our respects by holding a two minute silence to remember the men and women who have been lost to wars around the World.
Some classes have been exploring poems about war and have been inspired to create some of their own in response; some have recited poetry. Some have used empathy and put themselves in the position of these brave men and women to produce some beautiful written work whereas others have responded artistically. This fantastic work will be going up on display in our corridors very soon and we would love for you to come in and take a look for yourselves.
In the meantime, here are some photos of a small selection of work from our children...Read More
On No Pens Wednesday, the children of Sutton Park Primary School took up the challenge to put down their pens and pencils and rely on team work and creativity for the full day. As part of this, each class produced their very own scarecrow to protect the crops grown around the world.
The scarecrows represent the struggle faced by many around the world to grow crops and to remind us of the fact that many people cannot just help themselves to food when they like. For some, hunger is a real problem.
The scarecrows were judged and prizes awarded. However, we were not the only ones to benefit... The children were super excited to then help those less fortunate than themselves and, along with family members and friends, collected a mountain of food which HARP then took to feed the homeless.
Well done to everyone!
Please take a look at some of the scarecrows produced in our gallery.
