Canopius Community Day

Canopius Community Day

Canopius is one of our business partners. They are insurance underwriters with branches in UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Bermuda, US, Singapore and Australia.
Wednesday 11th June was the Community Day for Canopius. We had seven volunteers (including the CEO and Chairman, Michael Watson) who visited our school and taught financial literacy to the Year 5 pupils. The children learnt about the origin of insurance and the varieties of disasters that Canopius had insured over the years.
The school choir performed during a special whole school assembly, staged in honour of our partners. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be associated with Canopius and look forward to continued partnership with them.
Here are a few thank you letters written by the children of Year 5

Rio2

This term the children in Year 3 are learning about the rainforest and what better film to watch than of Rio 2. On Friday 25th April 2014 we made the short walk down to Cineworld Cinema to see the very wonderful and colourful animation of the Amazon Rainforest. This film has a couple of really good messages. One is that it teaches us to always put family first. If Blu (one of the main characters) does not learn this he will end up alone. Another one is to believe in yourself. Blu has to prove to himself that he is important no matter what anyone else tells him.

When we got back to school everybody had a lot say concerning the film. Here are some of their responses.

What was your favourite part of the film?

“If would have to be when the people crashed into the rain forest and the cool looking parrots were going crazy. Then the macaw bird broke the machines the bad people were using to destroy the rain forest.”

Abid Year 3

How did the film help your understanding of the rain forest?

“It made me realise what species to expect in the rainforest and how colourful nature looks. I knew there were streams there but I never knew waterfalls were there too”.

Harriot Year 3

What did you expect to see in the film?

“When I watched Rio 1 there were only 2 birds in the film but this time in Rio 1 there were thousands of them”!

Lennie Year 3

 If the director was to make Rio 3 what do you think will be different?

“Blu and Jewel’s children will be all grown up. If the director takes too long to make Rio 3 Jewel’s dad won’t be there. He would have died because he was already old in Rio 2”.

Abid, Harriet & Lennie

First Aid with the BRC

First Aid with the BRC

Over the course of 2 workshops, we were glad to have 21 parents participating in a First aid workshop offered free by the school. This was a 2 hour workshop run by the British Red Cross in which participants discussed ‘everyday’ situations as well as looking at what support they might give to someone who needs assistance. Parents were also given the opportunity to ‘administer’ CPR on a casualty!
