National Apple Day: Friday 21 October 2016
On Thursday 20 October 2016, Mattersey Primary and Everton Primary pupils celebrated National Apple Day! As well as a national day it was also a very special day to remember the apple orchard which once stood in Everton Primary’s grounds. All who attended took part in an array of workshops all linked to the theme of apples. Below are just a few photos from the day! The day was organised by Bev Fulwood our family Extended Learning Co-ordinator and brought together providers from our local community who ran cooking, arts and dance workshops. Next time you are near Everton Primary, look out for the Apple Orchard sculpture designed by Chris Campbell of Campbell Designs; now present in their school grounds.
Below you can see Priory Class children working with clay and pastry; what a yummy combination! It also looks like they are learning to Morris Dance...how exciting!
Night in the Museum with Caterpillar Class
On Thursday 13 October 2016, KS1 held its very own 'Night in the Museum' with the children enjoying a sleep-over in the darkness of Mattersey Primary Dinosaur Museum, snuggled up in pjs with their favourite teddies and eating popcorn!
Parents soon arrived to tour the dinosaur museum guided by the children. Mrs Dean, Saxon's mum said that she "loved seeing how hard the children have worked, and how proud they all are of their efforts."
"Religious Education for All"
RE in Nottinghamshire is changing...
In September 2015, schools in the County of Nottinghamshire were issued with the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, “RE for All”. Through the use of the Syllabus we use RE to enable our pupils to gain insights and knowledge to equip them as responsible members in our society. The Syllabus we follow encourages pupils to discover more about religion and world views on a range of topics. They are encouraged to express ideas and insights into key questions which face all human beings as we travel through life. The three fold aims of RE in Nottinghamshire will ensure that our pupils:
1. know and understand a range of religions and world views which will allow them to recognise diversity which exists in our society.
2. can express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and the impact of religions and world views as they develop their own personal views on a range of issues
3. develop and use skills which will assist them to engage seriously with religions and world views
By following the Agreed Syllabus, RE will contribute to a whole range of school priorities. Their study will promote spiritual, cultural, social and moral development, as well as enabling them to consider British Values such as tolerance and respect for other who hold different world views.
If you would like to know more about the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus a copy is available for you to read in the school.
