Guide Dog Visit
A team of volunteers from Tamworth guide dog fundraising group visited our school. They spoke to all of the children about how guide dogs are trained, how they help people in their daily lives and the positive impact that this has for both the owners and their families. Below are a few pictures from this special visit which was thoroughly enjoyed by children and staff!
World Book Day
We celebrated 'World Book Day'. It was wonderful to see all of our children dressed up as their favourite book characters and to share stories about them. Each class spent the day exploring books and activities based around reading. Pre-School and Reception were visited by Years 5 and 6 to share stories. Year One and Year Two took part in an orienteering style book hunt. Years Three, Four and Five had a book themed day and Year 6 created their own T-shirts for their favourite books. The Friends of St Elizabeth's organised a fabulous after school event where each child took home some books that were donated by other children in our school. Thank you to all of the children who passed on once loved books to be loved again by others.
Our book in the jar and potato competition was entered by almost 100 of our pupils. Well done to all of you who entered, there were some very imaginative designs. Our reading in strange places competition was also a success, thank you for all of the entries.
Parents and Carers were invited into school with their children to enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea, with delicious sandwiches, lots and lots of cakes, all served with tea/coffee or squash. Here are a few pictures capturing the event which ran over two consecutive weeks.
We have been thinking about our families, friends and loved ones during the month of November. Each of us had a poppy to decorate and fill with kind words/thoughts or names of loved ones who we want to think of and keep in our prayers during remembrance day and this special month. We also want to remember all of the fallen soldiers who work every day to keep us safe...lest we forget.
ST ELIZABETH'S FEAST DAY
On November 5th we celebrated the feast day of our School Saint. Every child took home a bookmark to celebrate our day with our school prayer on it. The children in Reception organised a party for Key Stage One. We began with a prayer and thought about how lucky we are to have such a caring Saint as our School Saint. Year 3 and 4 wrote some poems to share with each other. What a special day this was. Please see the Our Saints area of the website for more photographs of the day.
