Ukraine Fundraiser

Yesterday our children held a fund raising afternoon to help all those affected by the terrible situation in Ukraine. We couldn’t be more proud of our children for coming to us with this idea and for their amazing initiative and enthusiasm in organising and holding such an event. Many children made items such as badges and bracelets at home and many were involved in careful planning and organisation of the event. We had a craft area and a penalty shoot out as well as various stalls selling bookmarks, wish bracelets and cakes.

Donations can still be made via our School Money app and all proceeds will be donated to The Salvation Army. https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/ukraine-crisis-appeal

A very special moment as a group of our brass players performed ‘Lean On Me’.

A massive thank you to the children in year five and six who originally came to us with this idea and to all of year five and six for their help in organising everything. Thank you also to Miss Maeer and ARP for their help with co-ordinating the helpers and enabling the children to lead this event. Well done everyone, you have made us incredibly proud!

Co-operation

As you can see we have had a wonderful response to our enrichment homework on the theme of ‘Co-operation’.  Children have cited fantastic examples of co-operation within their homes and families as well as within school and the wider world.  We are particularly impressed with the detail and thought that has gone into each piece of work; a huge ‘well done’ to Team Rushall!

World Book Day 2022!

We all had a lovely time celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day in school this year. Both staff and children brought in their favourite book and dressed up as their favourite book character. The children also participated in a wide range of activities to celebrate the importance of reading and to promote reading for pleasure. Some of the activities included: WBD quizzes, reading scavenger hunts, shared reading sessions, paired reading sessions, cat walks, guess the character games and inventing their own book character. As you can see from the photos, the children had a wonderful time and couldn’t wait to spend their book token on a book of their choice.
