Time flies here at Homelands. It’s already been half term and we are hurtling towards Christmas. Our special Christmas sign is in the office window, telling us how many days there are to go until the big day – count along with us!
Last Friday saw all of us wearing spots to raise money for the wonderful cause, Children In Need. Check out the Facebook page for some spotty children in the garden! We raised £182.50, a great amount that will go towards helping children who maybe aren’t as lucky as us at Homelands.
What a unusually loud assembly – Years Three and Four performed some Samba music! There were all sorts of things going on including: surdo drums, repinques, djembes, tambourims, agogo bells and ganzas. These were amazing performances put together in ten weeks thanks to Mr Collings and Miss Page!
Monday saw anti-bullying raps recited by Years Three to Six, all about either how not to bully or somebody who was being bullied. Let’s hope we don’t bully at Homelands and we all display our Homelands Values, which were introduced in 2012.
Remember, you are NOT being bullied unless it happens more than once! Always tell someone and don’t retaliate. If you are still worried, you can call Childline for free on 0800 1111.
Killer Whales: 363 house points (2nd place, I see you have made some improvement!)
Bengal Tigers: 270 house points (3rd place)
Kodiak Bears: 440 house points (1st place, well done!)
Golden Eagles: 239 house points (4th place, you can do it!)
Well done to Kodiak Bears for winning the house cup once again this term! They have now won the House Cup five times, more than anyone else! Come on Killer Whales, you haven’t won it once this year!
Let’s check out attendance figures!
Foundation Stage Two: 90% (7th place, come on)
Year One: 98.6% (1st place, well done)
Year Two: 98% (2nd place, really close)
Year Three: 97.3% (4th place, in the middle again)
Year Four: 97. 4% (3rd place, 0.1% in it with Year Three)
Year Five: 96.2% (5th place, at least you were better than Year Six)
Year Six: 92% (6th place, your attendance has really taken a knock)
What’s happened to our attendance this week? We certainly haven’t been as healthy as most weeks! Let’s hope that our attendance is better next week!
Remember that next week we have the Christmas Fayre!
It’s been a great (if busy) week and we’ll give you more next week!
