Each term at St David’s C of E Primary School, we have a whole school topic that links into our Christian values; this term our value is ‘Friendship’ and this is explored in various ways across the curriculum. The children have been thinking about what makes a good friend and how to deal with situations that may arise with our friends.
The Owl classes have been busy studying Charles Darwin through their theme, ‘Darwin’s Delights’. They had an exciting visit from Zoo Lab who brought many animals, including an African land snail, tarantula, bearded dragon and corn snake. The children learned about Charles Darwin’s voyage on HMS Beagle, how he collected various specimens to take back home and about adaptation.
We are thrilled to report that our girls’ Floorball team won the final and the score was 7-3 against Ilmington Primary School. Well done to everyone who took part.
A group of staff and children attended the unveiling of a memorial stone, place in Moreton cemetery, to commemorate the men from Moreton who died in active service. It was a poignant moment when Joe Dyer, a Year 6 pupil, placed a cross in front of the memorial stone in remembrance of one of his relatives who had died in battle 100 years previously.
In preparation for World Book Week, each class created a dedicated reading space with a special story-telling chair. Throughout the week many book-related activities took place and on World Book Day many new faces arrived at school when all the children and staff dressed up as different book characters. During the course of the day, each class walked to Books Yule Love to swap their £1 book voucher for a book of their choice. Did you spot any well-known characters walking through Moreton High Street?
