At Gomeldon Primary school we had a special remembrance assembly; we had two minutes of silence when we reflected on all the men and women who have lost their lives in conflict. In remembrance we wrote poems and created pieces of art. We also created a Remembrance Wall with photos of our loved ones who have fought in conflicts.
At Gomeldon Primary School we have all been thinking about Road Safety. We thought about how to cross the road safely, made information posters and had a visit from our very own lolly pop lady. When she met Ash Class she explained the Green Cross Code, which helps us to cross the road safely.
Shoe Box Appeal
One wet afternoon in October, during our whole school assembly, we had a visit from the Trussell Trust. They explained all the good work that they do helping poor people in Bulgaria. They set us a challenge of making a Christmas shoe box to send with them to Bulgaria. They showed us photos of children who had received Christmas shoe boxes in the past and the joy that it brought to them on Christmas day. We all agreed that we wanted to join the challenge.
Friday lunchtimes are very exciting at Gomeldon Primary School as it is Golden Table Day. Throughout the week the Midday Lunchtime Supervisors give out Golden Certificates for good lunchtime manners. The children who receive a certificate have the honour of sitting at the Golden Table and eating their lunch with Mr. Macey.
Hinduism Write Up – 22. 11. 17
Today we learnt about Hinduism, we took part in lots of activities to explore the Hindu culture.
We did some Indian cooking and then mindfully ate it thinking about the taste, texture and smell of the food. We tried to identify the spices we had added. We read the story of Rama and Sita and found out that the story is celebrated through Diwali, the festival of light. We then role played the story and performed it to the rest of the class. We learnt an Indian dance routine using sticks and working together as a team. We designed our own henna pattern to draw on our hands and finally created some complex, but symmetrical patterns.
