This week, Elm class have been thinking of our value of service. They have though about the soldiers and home front, who served during WW2 and also all of the people who work to support Children in Need.
To commemorate Remembrance Day, Elm class created these beautiful paintings. First, they used colour blending skills to create a moonlit background and added a poppy in the middle ground to represent the soldiers, who sacrificed their lives to keep us safe. They then added the Chaconia, which is the national flower of Trinidad. This is to represent the soldiers from the Caribbean islands, who also fought and gave their lives to protect others.
Oliver also decorated a stone with a thoughtful Remembrance tribute. Thank you Oliver.
To support local charities, all of the children at St Anne’s donated £1 to BBC’s ‘Children in Need’ campaign. The were able to dress up in bright and colourful clothes to celebrate.
This week, we also held a special collective worship to celebrate Diwali and designed our own Diva lamps to light up our prayer area.
Well done to Youssef and Jackie for receiving merits this week. Youssef has been celebrated for his improved focus and effort in all of his tasks and Jackie has been showing resilience in maths and a positive attitude in all areas of her learning.
Well done to you both!
Rashaun also received a special note home, for his wonderful independent art this week.
I hope you all have a restful weekend.

We’ve had some very interesting lessons this week . On Wednesday, the children had a creative session with our new set of class iPads . We discussed our new remote learning platform, Seesaw, and explored creative ways to share our ideas and hard work. Today, we even had a remote learning tutorial session for maths and English. The children are now set for any eventuality and are confident with accessing learning online.
We have also had a great time learning about electricity this week, creating circuits and conducting experiments to explore the effects of voltage.

it’s been another fantastic week in Elm class. We have been working hard in English to write persuasive letters to both Mrs Steward, to be elected as team captain, as well as Miss Rice, to become a sports leader. We wrote our author at work piece this morning and everyone amazed me with their effort, enthusiasm and amazing presentation. We have also been recapping addition and subtraction using the formal written method in Maths- so busy!
This week both Najeed and Remell were awarded merits.
Najeed received his merit for his thoughtful and compassionate harvest prayer and Remell was celebrated for demonstrating his skills within reasoning and problem solving in maths. Well done to you both!
Today was also a cause for celebration as Mrs Steward announced this year’s team captains!!!
St George team captains: Alfie and Celina

Well done to you all. Mrs Steward was blown away with your persuasive letters and I know that you will do an amazing job in your new roles- Your teams are lucky to have such wonderful leaders! 🙂
