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.

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….

Sunflowers for Ukraine

By Fund Raising, House Jericho

With Spring fast approaching, it’s time to brighten your garden with some beautiful sunflowers. House Jericho are selling packets of sunflower seeds and biodegradable pots of sunflower seedlings to help raise money for Save the Children to support Ukrainian families. The Ukrainian national flower is the sunflower so planting these is a symbol of St.Alban’s solidarity with Ukraine.  

Sunflower seed packets are £2 each and biodegradable pots of seedlings are £2.50. All money will be going straight to the charity. To order, simply return your order form to your Jericho class ambassador with any payment (or class teacher in FS and KS1.) Orders can either be paid for with cash in an envelope with your name and year group on or online through School money. The deadline for returning complete forms is Friday 25th March.

A huge congratulations to House Jordan, who have won the House Cup this half term. To celebrate this achievement, today every child in House Jordan has been awarded a blue house badge.

Diversity

This half term, we have been learning about diversity. We asked every child in the school to complete a questionnaire to find out what diversity means to them.

This week our house leaders have been super busy interviewing children to prepare a diversity assembly that we are going to show at school tomorrow. House leaders worked so hard to conduct the interviews in a covid safe way.

Here is a trailer for their assembly.

Well done St Alban’s!

Class Elections

By Collective worship, Community, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai, PSHE

Today our lovely house leaders led collective worship for the whole school.

In this meeting, house leaders discuss class elections that are happening on the 6th May. We think it is important that our children learn about democracy, preparing them to live and thrive in modern Britain.

Watch this film to find out more.

Thank you,
