As part of our Character and Setting Focus weeks, the
children in KS2 have been reading stories to their buddies
in KS1. The children have enjoyed telling stories and
talking about the books with their buddies.
Over the last few weeks we have been donating food for our
Harvest Festival. The School Council and the Mini Vinnies
will be making up food parcels for the SVP and we will be
donating to local food banks. We have also been collecting
our pennies to donate and support the work of CAFOD.
As part of our Character and Setting Focus weeks, today
started with Teachers reading their favourite stories to
groups of children. The children enjoyed listening to
stories and talking about them. Some groups acted out the
stories or thought about alternative endings or events. Some
children were also able to read stories to the groups.
On the 28th of September 2018, the school council held a
coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan cancer support.
Thanks to all those that attended to make this another
successful coffee morning at St Helen's.
During September we had Cultural History focus weeks based
on the theme Inspirational Women where each class focused in
on an iconic person. Each class looked at inspirational
female role models from a range of different cultures to
help us develop an understanding of how influential people
of the past and present have had an impact on our lives.
St Helen’s joined other Newham Catholic primary schools at
St Francis' for a joint assembly presenting the charity with
fund raising efforts during Citizenship focus weeks. Red
Cross representatives thanked all schools involved
appreciating the hard work undertaken.
