Our wonderful school councillors have led a whole school council meeting today. The children's views are heard about bullying and how we can make our Forest Friday's even better. The children also discussed how our core Christian values can be seen both in school and at home and how understanding these makes us who we are.
We had a super visit from Science Oxford to launch our science curriculum this term.

Children in need ramble
A super sports day, lots of team spirit and effort. All the children took part in a variety of activities and then there were sprint races and long distance. Well done everyone!!
This year prayer space was set up in Aston Rowant Church. There was a feeling of calm and wonder as the children entered the church. The children spent time in each reflective area:-
Please (their own needs), Thank you, Sorry and World Thoughts.
Thank you to all those adults who took part, we hope you enjoyed it as much as the children did.

The children are investigating and making predictions!
Luke Delahunty from the Invictus Games
What an inspirational story from our Invictus Games visitor Luke Delahunty. He talked to the children about how a Growth Mindset can help them develop perseverance in Sport. Despite all barriers children can always learn something new and with practise can get better and better. Sport allows all people to make friends and stay healthy even with a disability. Luke talked to the children about his role within the Invictus team as a hand cyclist and through wheelchair rugby. He told them about the role of the Invictus Games and Prince Harry's involvement in helping ex servicemen and women through sport. We wish Luke all the very best for the 2017 trials in April!
