The autumn term is a terrific one in primary schools with so much happening from fun, festive events to more thoughtful and reflective ones.
At Lowdham CofE Primary School (LPS), the children have engaged with many visitors from the local church of St Mary’s, Notts Fire Team, various sporting clubs and a theatre company.
Head teacher, Ben Waldrom, said: “The whole school studied various aspects of WWI as they remembered the centenary of the end of The Great War.
“Every child made a poppy to be placed at the front of school.
“Many parents and grandparents commented positively on the created poppies and some attended our coffee morning where the children shared their learning with the community.
“As the weather turns colder, the attention turned to Christmas.
“Life in a primary school would not be complete without an annual nativity and the children of LPS have certainly got into the swing of that with the usual host of animals, wise men, angels and stars.
“The children melted hearts and lifted the roof with their singing, dancing and telling of this amazing story.
“We also raised money for several charities this year, including Children in Need, the Poppy Appeal and Operation: Christmas Child to name but a few.
“These events certainly help to give the children some much-needed perspective and context in this busy time.”
