Children In Need

On Friday 18th November we at St Elizabeth raised money for Children in Need.

BBC Children In Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential. The money raised is used to support projects working with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Children In Need are currently supporting around 2,400 projects that are working with children facing a range of disadvantages. The children and staff at St Elizabeth were encouraged to come to school  wearing the colour yellow or spots. Each year we help to raise money for Children In Need and we aim to raise yet another generous amount this year and were asked to make a donation on the day.

Lamis and Kiko two of our School Parliament members went round on the day to take pictures. Check them out:

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to St Elizabeth Nursery. The Nursery team is delighted to have started this scholastic year with your wonderful children. The list below is a guideline of resources needed for your child from Monday 14th September to ensure we create and maintain good communication links. Your child must have:

1.a school bag in which to keep a home-school-reading record book, a reading book which we will change twice a week and letters about events or general information that you need to know. St Elizabeth school bags will be available to purchase from the office.
2.a change of clothes (not uniform): each item of clothing must be labelled with your child’s name, the clothes need to be in a plastic bag labelled with your child’s name. A change of clothes is required for your child in case he/she gets wet playing with water or any other accidents.
3.if your child wears wellies to school, please bring a pair of shoes in a bag for your child to change into. Wellies are great for outside activities if it is wet, but they can be uncomfortable to be worn indoors.
We are very grateful for your co-operation.
Please do not hesitate to contact the nursery team if you have any queries.
The Nursery Team.

St. George’s Day

On Thursday, St. Elizabeth celebrated St. George’s Day. The children dressed in red or white clothes and we had an afternoon full of fun activities!

The whole school began their afternoon with an assembly, where the children from 6M helped to re-enact the different stories we know about St. George. There was an English Tea Party in the KS1 Playground, English games on the KS2 Playground and in-class activities; where the children learnt about the factual and fictional stories of our Patron Saint. I was happy to see so many parents turn up to join our celebrations as well – with the Year 6’s helping to serve the delicious sandwiches and cakes!

Thank you to all parents who donated such lovely food and decorations and to all the staff and children for making the day a huge success!
