Children in Need

School was full of onesies and PJs today, as everyone took the opportunity to dress down for a donation! Class One joined in with Joe Wickes virtual PE lesson and school puddings today had a Pudsey twist. We’ve raised £108, so far and the collection bucket will be out again at pick-ups if you’ve not yet had the chance to donate!

Remembrance Day

The children have spent this week learning the reasons why we mark remembrance each year. Pupils in Class 4 have made this beautiful display of poppies for the school gate. The rest of the school can’t wait to see the assembly they’re recorded for us on Wednesday. A big thank you to Miss Potter and her Dad for painstakingly tying all the poppies and wreaths to the gate.

Pupil Parliament 2020

Not all ballot papers take quite so long to count! Pupils at school took to the polls today, voting for their preferred candidate in the Graveley Pupil Parliament elections. The results were close but this year’s successful MPs are:

Class 1 – Lily-Grace and Olivia

Year 2 – Eliot

Year 3 – Isla

Year 4 – Charlie

Year 5 – Matthew

Year 6 – Nancy

Congratulations everyone! Mrs Hand is looking forward to working with them all this year.

Cross Country 2020

Today we held the very first intra-house cross country competition. All children in years 2-6 took part, completing either 2.5 or 5 laps of the entire school site. We’re so proud of their enthusiasm and sportsmanship. The winners from each year group were:

Year 6 – Georgia and Will

Year 5 – Evie and Matthew

Year 4 – Annie and Freddie

Year 3 – Isla M and Keiran

Year 2 – Claudia and Reggie

The overall House Winners were ‘RED RUBY’.

Harvest 2020!

This year we asked our families to help support the Stevenage Food Bank, by filling a shoe-box with either dry/tinned/packet foods, toiletries or baby products. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of our families and proud to be able to pass our collection to the Food Bank.

We have also made and distributed harvest keyrings to spread harvest prayers and greetings to our neighbours in the village.
