Thank you to Leicestershire fire service who led sessions for pupils in years one and five this week. The children were taught important messages about keeping safe and the important role of the fire service.
The year one pupils learnt about:
- Good and bad fires
- Don’t play with matches
- Stop, drop and roll
- Crawling low in smoke
- ‘Frances the Firefly’ cartoon
- Road safety (booster seats and safety near roads)
Year five’s session focused on:
- Escape plans, smoke alarms
- Causes of fire
- 999 calls / hoax calls
- Storyboard – deliberate fire setting
- DVD excerpt: Bedroom Fire
- Road safety: in-car and pedestrian
A big thank you to Leicestershire Fire and Rescue for their continued work with the children at our school.
At Church Langton we are keen to provide opportunities for the children to explore prayer. Recently this has included special services and acts of worship both in school and at Church as well as a prayer week which is held in the summer term.
The whole school enjoyed the opportunity to engage in prayer activities organised by Rev Janet and members of the congregation from St Peter’s Church. The theme for our day of prayer was ‘Remembering’ with the children considering this in four different prayer stations. They created their own Jesse Tree, made poppies to remember those who lost their lives in war, remembered the importance of communion and studied the saints. The children particularly enjoyed searching to see if they share a name with a saint.
It was great to see the children enjoying exploring the prayer stations, thanks to Rev Janet and all the volunteers who helped to make it such a special day.
The children have been focusing on how to be a power for good during Anti Bullying Week. This has been part of our lessons and our daily worship. Years five and six enjoyed the anti-bullying workshops run by Kidscape while year two created their own superhero masks to think about how to use their powers. All of the pupils have designed their anti-bullying posters, we look forward to seeing the winners from each class displayed around the school.
While anti-bullying week is always an important part of our calendar but the work we do to keep our pupils safe in school and to educate the children on how to treat each other is a vital part of day to day life at Church Langton.
The team, made up of pupils from years five and six took part in a tournament of local schools which was organised by St Joseph’s Primary School. The team, coached by Mr Baylis, played their first competitive fixtures of the season demonstrating great teamwork and fully deserved to be crowned the winners. A big thank you to all involved in the tournament.
Our service of Remembrance at St Peter’s Church was led by Rev. Janet with the pupils joined by parents and governors. The children heard all about the meaning of the poppy and were led in prayer by year six. The singing of the Taize chant ‘Jesus Remember Me’ was a particularly special moment and it was great to see the school community come together for this very special Church service.
Well done to the boys and girls who represented the school in the Remembrance Football Tournament at St Cuthbert’s Great Glen. The children had an excellent afternoon finishing runners-up in the tournament with some super performances. Thank you to Mr Williams for coaching the team and to Friends of Church Langton for the new shirts which were worn for the first time.
Well done to the boys who represented the school in the first round of matches in the football league. The boys played well in drawing one match and losing the other. Thank you to Mr Baylis for coaching the team.
A big thank you to Friends of Church Langton for the new kit which was worn by the team for the first time.

Well done to the pupils from years three and four who represented our school in the uni-hoc tournament hosted by Robert Smyth Academy. The two teams took part in a series of matches, demonstrating great team work and performing against pupils from eight other schools. Thank you to Miss Patrick for joining myself to coach the teams and to all the staff and sports leaders at Robert Smyth for organising another excellent event.
