We try to involve our community in our learning as much as possible and enjoy every opportunity we can to get people in or get out and about! Exciting learning experiences have included those items below but there are many other events that have taken place too.
We take our children on trips to places of worship from a variety of religions and welcome visitors in to share their cultural differences and similarities with us.
We have organised many events at Bredon Playing Fields and work hard to promote the link between our children and facilities in the village. Our children in the past have worked wonderfully well as 'Play Leaders' and I hope they will be continuing in this capacity soon.
Unfortunately we have not been able to maintain our community links in the same way over the last couple of years due to the pandemic, but we have great plans to work again with our community very soon.
If you have a community event or activity that you would like to promote, please contact the school and we would be happy to help advertise it through our school website. Please see below some of the community activities that are currently taking place!
Play Leaders: Meeting 1 17th January 2020
We had our first meeting today as a 'Play Leader' team. On Thursday we collected ideas from around the school for play equipment we might like in the local park. We then gave these ideas to Martin, Karen and Debbie and learnt about the huge amount of money we helped raise at Christmas.
We are very excited about our next meeting (especially as we had some biscuits in this one) and are looking forward to developing the next part of the project!
This half term we would like the children to draw a wonderful picture of a ferret to help raise awareness of the next fund raising project! Any child in the class can create a picture of a ferret in any medium they would like. There will be a prize for the best in Reception and Key Stage 1 and a prize for the best in Key Stage 2. Good luck everyone, the closing date is Friday 14th Feruary 2020!
Please find below the details two pre school nurseries in our community. The websites are in the links below.
Kemerton Preschool and Forest School
Our eco-club members have recently made a video (with minimal input from staff!) about littering for Wychavon District Council's Anti-littering Campaign. They were entered into a competition where they won £150 for school! They enjoyed a very special afternoon at a recycling plant having afternoon tea and collecting their prize!
Singing and dancing with the Luncheon Club!
Our Y5 children held a War Time Tea Party for the older generation of our village community. The children had learned popular songs and dances from the time to share with their visitors. They made the tea time treats too, using wartime recipes and ingredients! Very tasty actually! They also sang Christmas songs at their Christmas Lunch too!
All our children enjoyed time doing mini-beast hunts, observational drawing and nature trails as well as activities that allowed the children to experience the space and facilities that the playing fields has to offer. They loved it and have asked if they can go back and use the pitches and sporting facilities next time!
Our Glee Choir children went to Birmingham in January to sing with more than 5000 other school children from the Midlands region. They practised lots of popular songs from the playlist and were thrilled to be part of suggest an exciting and special event and they absolutely sang their hearts out! We always enjoy this event and the experience is one that the children will always remember!
A week of exciting and creative opportunities across the curriculum that made our children think about what it is to be British! The children enjoyed many dance and art activities that challenged them to think about how diverse modern British culture is, compared to how it has been historically.
Having been involved in a beautiful Harvest Festival Celebration at St. Giles Church, the children and staff were delighted to be able to share the edited highlights with grandparents and visitors from the village who were able to enjoy tea and cake while they watched! We have held a Harvest Tea for the older generations in our community every year for many years now and it is something we find especially rewarding.
We have regular visits from our PCSO and some of her colleagues to work with the children on Internet safety, stranger danger and road safety. We take this aspect of our work with children and families very seriously indeed and often ask families to join us for this training.
