Life Bus Year 5

 

Meeting Harold

Meeting Harold

Oak class had a great time when they visited the Life Bus today. They were made to think about the choices that we will make in the future as they learnt about the effects of alcohol on the body and how medicines contain drugs. They learnt about how to be assertive and say no to other people when dealing with peer pressure – as a bystander they can help to support their friends. And finally they met Harold the giraffe who told a funny joke about Russian dolls – they’re full of themselves apparently! Thanks Harold and Pete!

Chess Championships

Receiving certificates in assembly

Some Year 4 and 5 children took part in the Bristol Schools Chess Championships yesterday which involved over 100 children. This was the first of its kind for our school and our 8 players proved to be great ambassadors for Stoke Park. Everyone played well and concentrated hard and won many of their games – they were even playing older children who were far more experienced. Their chess tutor Paul said that ‘Stoke Park should be very proud of all of their efforts, and their behaviour was impeccable.’ Well done Stoke Park!!!Stoke Park should be very proud of all of their efforts, and their behaviour was impeccable.

May School Council Meeting

The School Council met with one of the governors, Alice, to give their opinions on the values of the school. The aim is to bring together the opinions of the school community into a statement of our collective moral purpose, which will inform the future decisions made by the governors. The School Council would love it if parents could take this survey too which can be found by following this link: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NR2YTS9
