Year 3 pupils had the honour of welcoming representatives from the Royal Academy of Music in London today. The visit was to see our pupils show how far they ahve come with their singing since starting the workshop with Bristol Plays Music. Cabot children were chosen as stand out performers from all the other Bristol Schools taking part in this programme. Well done Year 3¬ You are so talented.
At Cabot we value working in Partnership with others. Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have been learning about the Shang Dynasty in China. To help bring learning about China, its people and its culture to life, Miss Tupman invited some Chinese visitors to Cabot. They first came in September but our partnership with them has grown and they have been back for a second visit. We hope this Partnership continues for many years to come.
I have received information from Public Health England that a large number of schools have already been affected by flu (influenza) outbreaks this year.
Free flu vaccinations are available for ALL primary aged children. NHS nurses will be coming to administer the nasal spray at Cabot next week. If you have not booked your child in for this immunisation at school we strongly recommend you see your GP to discuss immunisation options. Flu can be very serious. More details about the immunisation programme can be found at the link below.
Applications for 2020 Reception place can be made via the Bristol City Council Parent Portal. You can access the Parent Portal by clicking the link below. Applications must be submitted by 15 January 2020.
We have two more scheduled open day visits at 2pm on Tuesday 3rd December 2019 and 9am on Friday 6th December. However, if you can’t make these, please call the school to see if we can arrange another time for you to visit.
All children have taken part in a range of Anti-Bullying workshops and activities this week. We had a special celebration today to showcase our learning about how we can be the people that make the positive changes to make our school and wider community a better place for everyone.
Our Year 6 pupils have been working on a very interesting project. Children have been interview members of the local St Paul’s Community, including people who have lived here an long time and others who have moved here more recently. We have found out what things are important to residents as well as lots of local history. People from Ujima Radio have helped children develop their interview skills and learn about how to make recordings. All this work will go towards producing a community area project in Den Street next year. This is a great piece of partnership working with our school and our community.
Our friends from Galliford Try Construction came to present us with a plaque today. Workers from Galliford Try spent the summer redecorating our courtyard area. They have also invited us to bring some children over to the construction site near Temple Meads as an educational visit.
We had two very special guests in our assembly today. Laura, from Living Streets came to tell us about the Walk To School Challenge. Walking to school is not only good for the environment, it keeps us healthy too. Also, her friend Strider came along to tell us how we can earn badges and stickers for a bit of extra motivation too!
We had our Harvest Festival Celebration in school today. Mrs Redwood led us in our celebration and appreciation of the food we have available to us. Mr Town played his guitar as we sang along to harvest songs, including our old favourite, Cauliflowers fluffy….
Each class presented some learning they had done over the last week. Our school ambassadors will take the food we have collected to The Bristol Refugee Group to distribute to people in our St Paul’s Community.
