ELLINGHAM SCHOOL NEWS
Today we held a Remembrance Day assembly and shared the history of the event, which is now over a hundred years old. We are focusing on our value of respect this week and the children's behaviour to adults and each other in class, in the playground and in assemblies, which today included a two minutes silence continues to be excellent.
Get Fresh With Frozen
This is a great campaign to get children and families eating more vegetables. The website contains lots of information about how using frozen vegetables can be a useful cost saving exercise and along with this there is a competition where you could win a freezer and the food to go in it.
Odd Socks Day
Next week is Anti-bullying week and the theme is 'Make a Noise', encouraging children to speak out. Kicking off with Odd Socks Day and an assembly, every class will explore this theme by taking part in short daily activities throughout the week, hopefully creating a whole school display to mark the event.
School Uniform Sale
The second -hand uniform sale was a great success. Thank you to FOE volunteers, the office team and Mrs Pakes, who manned the stand in the cold night air.

Year 5/6 Athletics
Our Year 5 and 6 sporting stars made us proud when they attended the Kingston Academy for an athletics competition in partnership with Active Kingston. The children did so well, demonstrated excellent determination and resilience and ended up placing third overall. They all earned their medals and it was lovely to see them wearing them with such pride. Their excellent sportsmanship helped them to work together and succeed as a team. Well done to each and every one of them!
Year 6 trip to Imperial War Museum
Year 6 kicked the week off with an inspiring trip to the Imperial War Museum where they were able to immerse themselves in World War 1 and 2. Children were able to try on military uniforms and experience what life was like inside the trenches!
All the children were amazing representatives for Ellingham and we had many compliments on their behaviour- well done Year 6!
Year 6 Wellbeing Ambassadors
We all had a great morning and the girls were a pleasure to be with.
Year 6 Playleader Training
On Tuesday 7th November, five excellent role models from Year 6 were selected to attend playleader training at a local school. The training enabled the children to develop their communication, teamwork and social skills. Alongside this, they became more confident leading activities with small groups of younger pupils within our school.
We can't wait to see them implement this training in our playground to support children to promote our value of friendship. They are rightly wearing their badges with pride. See if you can notice them around our school!
It is always lovely when children are so proud of their achievements outside of school that they want to celebrate with their schoolmates.
Congratultions to our swimmers who all received medals and certificates for their distance swimming.
