... Have a Great Half Term - School re-opens Monday 3rd November 2014...

We have been celebrating ‘One World Week’ in school this week. Through a variety of lessons children have been thinking about how living differently can protect the planet's resources for future generations and looking at how we could live differently in order to secure a fairer, more satisfying life for everyone. I know the children have very much enjoyed the theme this week from the snippets of conversations I’ve overheard when walking around school. When I asked them to give me thoughts about the week this is what some Year 5 children had to say:

This week we have been looking at One World Week, we have created pledges, peace signs and learned about Fairtrade. First we created and looked at some peace symbols and found out where they originated from. Next we made pledges which are similar to a promise. We wrote our pledges up on bookmarks and decorated them. Last of all we looked at Fairtrade. Fairtrade is an organisation which gives the people who made it an equal amount of money. Buy Fairtrade for a fairer world.      Catherine Alms

This week couldn’t have been better! We learned many things including Fairtrade , pledges and peace. We learned that pledges are something that you follow to make yourself a better person. Our class pledge is to believe it ourselves and to never let yourself down.     Swayam Sarangi

Well it’s definitely been a busy half term for us at Sharmans. Hope you all have a good rest and a fabulous half term break. Hope to see everyone back safe and well on Monday 3rd November!

We have been made aware of an incident at a Solihull School where a man was spotted taking photographs with a long - lensed camera towards the school playground. He was described as being 'scruffy', in his mid-fifties, and wearing a green jumper. The incident was reported to the LA and the police were also contacted. We will monitor this as a school but if you do see anyone of this description acting in a suspicious  manner please contact Solihull police and let the school office know immediately.

Coffee Morning 3rd November
Our coffee morning on 3rd November will be an opportunity to meet our Child and Family Support Worker, Jo Whitcombe. Here, Jo  will be available to discuss her role in school and  sign post you to the variety of agencies who are out there to support local families. Everyone welcome!
