Y3- Gardening

By Community, Garden, House Jericho, Science, Year 3

Every Friday, Year 3 have been going in small groups to our school garden to help with deweeding, planting and general garden maintenance. There hard work has helped to make our school garden look more beautiful and ready for Summer! We have also been linking our gardening trips to our plants topic in science. Children have been considering what plants need to grow healthily and recalling the parts of plant while in the garden.

Queen Elizabeth

We hope that you have had a lovely bank holiday weekend celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. To commemorate this special occasion, children from FS1 to Year 6 have created portraits of our Queen.

We are so proud of the children’s creations and love the way they have captured their own personality in their art work.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back at school tomorrow.

Walk to school week 2022

By Community, Geography, House Jericho, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Children at St.Alban’s have ditched their cars this week, instead choosing to walk/cycle/jog to school! Not only is this better for the environment but also brilliant for both our physical and mental health. Well done to house Jericho for organising the week and thank you to all children who took part.

Here are some pictures taken from some students’ journeys to school….

Gratitude Tree

Meet our new Gratitude Tree

At St Alban’s we often say, ‘Gratitude is an attitude.’ We try to appreciate the small and big things and be grateful for what we have.

Next week, as part of our end of day prayer, we will ask the children to think of three things that they are grateful for and think about these things.

Next to the tree will be a golden leaf. If any child would like to share what they are grateful for, then they can write a note and place it on the leaf. Each week, I’ll check the leaf and read out the things that the children are grateful for in collective worship.

Today I am grateful for the sunshine, listening to the children sing in collective worship and the blossom tree in our infant yard. I feel very blessed to work in such a special school.

I’m also grateful to one of our very talented parents, Joanne Openshaw (Blooms and Posies), who created our blossom tree- thank you.

Parent Resources

By Collective worship, Community, PSHE, Religious Education

Today many of our children came to school asking questions about Ukraine. For this reason, in collective worship we talked about worries and the importance of sharing these worries with people that we trust.

Here are some reading resources to help parents think about how they can support children with what they are seeing or feeling during these challenging times.
