The Weekly 'Round-Up' Junior School
It’s been another jam-packed week at the Juniors!
We started the week learning about COP26 in assembly. Did you know that COP stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’ and that 26 is to represent the 26th year the meeting has taken place? We learnt a lot about the environmental issues which will be discussed (we knew a lot already too), and thought about ways we can make a small difference this week. Owen suggested that people may like to try eating more vegetables and less meat, and Sofia suggested that we try alternative methods of transport to school, such as cycling. You can see the video we watched here.
We have also marked Remembrance day this week. Mr Beament led a special assembly about George Strong, a previous Headteacher of St Saviour’s who fought and sadly died in the war. You can see pictures of the assembly, the memorial (which is in the Junior school library) and the old ledger (which is like a big diary and records the events happening at school during this time) here. Year 6 held a special day dedicated to Remembrance day, where they focussed on the football match with took place on Christmas Day in 1914. You can find out more about their learning here.
Our E-team (pictured here) met this week, and then spoke to the classes about ‘Odd Socks Day’, which is part of Anti-Bullying week. This will be held on Monday 15th November, and helps us to celebrate everyone’s differences. You can find out more about Odd Socks Day here – don’t forget to wear your odd socks on Monday.
The Year 6 Girls’ football team did a fantastic job in the football tournament at Odd Down on Tuesday and demonstrated the school values beautifully throughout their time playing. Well done! You can see pictures of the match and find out the scores here.
