We have been thinking about using kind words as part of anti-bullying week with the children reflecting on the way in which we wish to treat each other. A key part of this has been to remind the children that if they are ever concerned about something in school they should speak to an adult. The children have created different ways of showing kind words and these are now displayed in our link corridor.
We held our Remembrance Service with Rev Jonathan joining us. We focused on the names of the lives lost in the Langtons during the first World War which are listed on the War Memorial in Church Langton. We also lit candles for those who are not named and for all who have died in conflict. A group of pupils had also shared how they had been part of the Poppy Pilgrimage with the Parish Council and the University of Leicester.
It was a pleasure to welcome Neil O’Brien, MP for Harborough to school as part of #ParliamentWeek . He joined our Collective Worship where he answered questions from pupils across the school. He then took part in a school council meeting discussing a range of subjects including climate change and the role of being an MP. He then had a chance to see the progress of new extension.
Well done to the group of pupils from years three and four who represented the school in the uni-hoc tournament at Robert Smyth Academy. The children, coached by Mr Knowles, played matches against local schools and enjoyed the chance to compete following their learning in pe lessons this term.
We were delighted to join the University of Leicester as part of the Poppy Pilgrimage in Church Langton this week.
The pilgrimage started in 2018, with eleven University students laying wreaths in the local area, following a dedication service at the University with speeches by Sir David Attenborough and Sir Peter Soulsby. In 2019, a further 15 sites were covered and the pilgrimage has now resumed this year.
Pupils from our school joined in the wreath laying and read poetry at the event. Thank you to Mrs Harrison for organising the event.
