SMSC - Social, Moral, Spirtual and Cultural learning at Henley Green.

Coventry Cathedral

We had a visit to Coventry Cathedral, to learn about the effects of war and how peace and reconciliation can be achieved. The children had the chance to see some artefacts from the war in the Cathedral Museum. They also had a guided tour around both the old and new Cathedrals and spoke a lot about the importance of peace and reconciliation within both their own communities but also the wider world. 

Winchcombe

On Wednesday 12th October, Year 5 were evacuated to a village called Winchcombe, in the Cotswolds. We experienced a ride on a steam train, we put a fire out and experienced an air raid. We also had the opportunity to talk to some people who were themselves evacuated during the war. 

Children from KS2 competed against each other to decorate an Easter egg for their hardworking teachers! 

Well done to Chyenn in Y6- the overall winner!

Craft Club

 

Eight Year 2 children were invited to join the Craft Club this term, where they practised their designing, cutting, sticking and sewing skills. They all made a hanging snowman and a standing winter tree to take home. They worked hard but also had great fun!

Year 2 Visit Tesco!

To extend our topic work on 'The Great Fire of London', Year 2 visited Tesco. We were keen to see what a modern bakery looked like and see what the bakers made.

 

Whilst we were there, we looked around the store and at the different foods. We also made a pizza and a fruit kebab to bring back to school.

 

Here are some pictures of us enjoying our trip!

WWII Workshop

 

Our Year 5 pupils recently had visitors to Henley Green  for a WWII workshop.

 

The children made carrot cookies which they were then able to eat, and also made purses and sock puppets and these will be on display at the Far Gosford Christmas event which our children and families have been invited along to!

 

Below is part of a cookbook which has been produced with their brilliant ideas!

Marking the 75th Anniversary of the Coventry Blitz

KS2 marked the 75th Anniversary of the Coventry in their KS2 Assembly on Monday 16th November by listening to the memories of Coventrians who survived the bombing. We looked at video of the Chain of Light ceremony that took place on 14th November 2015 in the ruins of the old Cathedral.

We also had a minute silence to show our respect to the people in Paris who had been killed in the attacks on Friday 13th November 2015.

KS1 talked about what bullying is during KS1 Assembly on Tuesday 17th November. 

 

We came up with our own 'shout-outs' about bullying.

Year 6 held a class election to select two representatives for the School Council.

Year 6 had a visit from two magistrates. They told us  what magistrates do and how a court works. We then took part in a mock trial! Our actors were excellent and we worked together to decide on a verdict.
