Inspiration for our playground leaders
Inspiration for our playground leaders

More playtime fun and games in store for younger children

On Monday, we welcomed Cath Burston in to school to work with our Y5/6 Playground Leaders.

During the morning the leaders were split into groups of five and their task was to use the PE resources to lead a small game which would engage FS/KS1 during playtimes.

Playtime gamesNext term, these Y5/6 playtime leaders will continue their excellent leadership qualities and continue to lead some games during the infants lunchtime play. Thank you to Mrs Burston for providing this wonderful opportunity for our Y5/6 children. She told the leaders that they should all be very proud of themselves for demonstrating many of the skills that will make them excellent playtime leaders.

Ascension Day walk up Kelston Hill
Ascension Day walk up Kelston Hill

KS2 observe Ascension Day by heading outside

We were pleased to make the most of the fair May weather and make our annual pilgrimage to remember the events of Ascension Day on Kelston Roundhill.

We assemble at the top of the hill for a service with prayers, a Bible reading, hymn singing and a reminder of the significance of the occasion. This is followed by a well-deserved picnic lunch and an opportunity to play in the fresh air before heading back to school.

This memorable day also gives the children a chance to chat with their friends, teachers and other adults, enjoy the scenery and observe nature. Well done to all the children for participating so well. 

Thank you to Mr Baker for his organisation, to all the staff and parent helpers who accompanied us and to the landowner, William Heath, for once again extending an invitation to us to use the site for this event.

Saltford School and St Mary's Church family service

Successful collaboration in the community

Family service at St Mary's ChurchMr Baker and nearly half his class led the Family Service at St Mary's Church last Sunday, 13th May. After a warm welcome from Rev'd Daile, the children did a Bible reading, acted out a play based on Jesus' Parable of the Talents, showed pictures that they had drawn based on this story and read prayers they had written themselves.

We were very impressed with the way the children behaved, spoke and sang and many members of the congregation commented how nice it was to see so many children from Saltford School at church with their parents. We very much value our strong links with St Mary's and this annual event certain serves to strengthen that relationship.

Thank you to the parents who made it possible for their children to attend and who came along to support the event and to the people of St Mary's for making us so welcome, including providing refreshments after the service.
