EYFS Promise - Acts of kindness
Act 1: RV and RC went to oak tree mews to spread some holiday cheer. We all joined in and sang so beautifully and showed everyone how we behave at St. David’s Primary - our teachers were SO proud of us! After our singing the lovely staff had a surprise for us - they had biscuits and juice and a little present for us to take home. What a great way for our little people to spread a little kindness in our community.
Act 2: After one of our trips to church we talked about how at St-David’s we know how important it is to have caring hearts. We want to be kind and caring to everyone around us. We talked about how we could make a difference and help others feel happy. So we decided to make cards and go around school spreading some happiness to all of the people that help us everyday! We each had a turn to give one of the staff, who take care of us, our card and some love hearts. We made everyone smile!
Year 1 Promise - Stargazers
The year ones were treated to some hot chocolate, a biscuit and the chance to gaze up at the stars. We started off by listening to a few stories set in space or about space and then luckily the sky was clear and with the helping hand of Simon, from the SpaceDome, we were able to see the North star, the International Space Station and the planet Venus. It was a fantastic evening and a great chance to see in action what we'd been learning about in the Dome that afternoon.
Year 2 Promise - Party in the Park
Year Two enjoyed a trip to Broadway Park. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery on the coach travelling to the park and when we arrived, we lost no time in exploring the vast space and all the different equipment at the park. The climbing frame was a big hit and the queue to the zip line was always long. We stopped briefly for lunch and then we had more time to play! Not even the little rain shower could stop us...and to top it off, we all got a delicious choc-ice to enjoy. A really wonderful day out!
Year 3 Promise - Responsible Tourists
On Monday 9th January Year 3 took part in a litter pick on Blenheim Meadow as part of their St. David’s Pupil Promise. After a talk from Cotswold District Council about the hazards of litter and the safety rules we had to follow when collecting rubbish, we headed out to Blenheim Meadow. Armed with litter pickers and wearing Hi-Viz vests, we worked in groups supervised by adults from school and the council. We were amazed how much litter we managed to find. There was a lot of plastic and old drinks cans but the most interesting find was part of a bicycle frame. The children had a fun afternoon despite the dreary weather and they are now really keen to continue litter picking making sure that our school site and local community stays litter free. The adults commented on how amazing the children were, not only were they enthusiastic but they were polite and super sensible when collecting the rubbish – excellent work year 3! What a start to our Pupil Promise!
Year 3 had an amazing day at Weston-super-Mare beach for their St. David’s pupil promise. They had a lot of fun with some brilliant sand sculptures building. The children had a great time exploring The Grand Pier, a picnic on the beach, having a donkey ride, enjoying an ice lolly, sand sculpture building and a quick game of beach cricket. The weather was brilliant and the children were fantastic ambassadors. Thanks for a great day year 3!
Year 4 Promise
On Wednesday 19th Year 4 went to Oxford to the New Theatre to watch Annie for their St David’s Pupil Promise. All the pupils showed our St David’s values whilst out and did themselves and the school proud. After performing on stage to family and friends earlier this year, they thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the actors hard work, singing along to the well-known songs. Even binging their singing voices back to school and singing to anyone willing to listen. What a great experience!
Year 5 Promise
On Friday 9th June Year 5 went to All Things Wild on the train. They spent the day exploring all the park had to offer and saw lots of animals including meerkats, camels, spider monkeys and reindeer. The children also took part in a workshop where they learnt all about fossils and the job of a palaeontologist. They worked together to uncover a huge fossil of a diplodocus using spades and brushes in the dig pit before heading over to encounter some unusual animals. Some of them were very brave and held a hissing cockroach, a corn snake and even an armadillo! After a nice picnic lunch in the sun, they continued exploring the park before enjoying an ice-cream to cool off at the end of the day. The weather was fantastic and a great day was had by all.
Year 6 Promise
On the 8th March, on a snowy morning, Year 6 set off on their residential trip to Longtown. We had an amazing time desspite of the snow which continued to fall steadily all the time we were there until the last day when the sun shone . We had an action packed first afternoon involving high ropes, low ropes, climbing, abseiling and zipline. In the evening, after dinner, we did an orienteering challenge in the snow. It was super exciting running around in the dark with our torches trying to find clues.
On the second day, we had to change our timetable due to the snow. We went on a very long hike up a very big mountain - it was tiring but the sledging down was worth all the effort. That eveing we had a campfire and we toasted marschmallows and reflected on the last couple of days.
The last day saw the sun shining and clear blue skies. Paddle boarding and other activities on site were completed and then the afternoon saw a range od team games being played. We finally said goodbye at four thirty and headed back to Moreon, tired but still buzzing!
An amazing trip that made lots of memories to treasure!
