Miss Barlow's Words Autumn Term Week 9

This week has been anti-bullying week. Each class has learned about what bullying is and how it can be stopped. The theme this year is: “The Power of Good” which was introduced to the girls in assembly on Tuesday by Miss Pelizzari.  All week, the girls have been finding lots of opportunities to use their power of good to help others. I gave each class a task: the Mannequin Challenge, representing anti-bullying week and The Power of Good; the results were brilliant. (You can see the videos on twitter). Poems have been written and drama workshops have been attended too, to help reinforce what bullying is and how we can stop it from happening. The drama workshops which Years 2-6 attended, used silent routines and music to demonstrate a bullying scenario. The class then became the director, to help change what happens in the end. Thank you to Theatre Unlimited for bringing your talented actresses to our School and for your creativity.

Also this week, Rhiannon Thomas in Year 4, has been running different stalls each day selling a variety of things and inviting the rest of the School to take part in competitions. The reason? To help raise money for PACT; a charity which helps place children who do not have a safe and secure family with supportive and loving families, and supports them with therapeutic care. Rhiannon presented a well organised and well thought out presentation to the School last Friday and has been raising money ever since with the help of her friends. Rhiannon gave the School an update on how she had done this morning and announce the winner of the sweet jar competition. So far she has raised over £100! What an achievement!
