Crowmoor in the Community

On most Wednesdays our friends from The Baptist Church visit the school to deliver a short assembly based on a bible story. All the children thoroughly enjoy taking part in the short plays which always have a message to tell.
Some of our Key Stage 2 children helped to plant trees around the school grounds to enhance the Forest School environment. The National Trust are also assisting with the provison of Forest School resources. We appreciate the support from the Town Council in sourcing the trees and helping us to plant them.
Crowmoor was highly honoured to be the primary school asked to provide the three pupils to witness the historic swearing in of Shropshire’s new High Sheriff, Mrs Christine Holmes JP, which occurred at Shrewsbury Crown Court over the Easter Holidays.The Office of High Sheriff dates back for over a 1,000 years ,the post holder upholds the peace and loyalty to the Crown.The ceremony was lead by The Honourable Mr Justice Haddon-Cave ,who commented on the presence of our pupils during the ceremony and made a point of talking individually to the three children after the ceremony.

Gerald the Giraffe…..

We received a delivery of Gerald our bottle top Giraffe from the Britsh Ironworks Centre. In school we all worked together to collect as many bottle tops as possible to feed into Gerald! We had sooooooo many they didn’t all fit into Gerald!

We are now putting our heads together to come up with a piece of artwork we can make in school to celebrate our success with the recycled bottle tops! We will update you soon!

Remembrance Day Assembly……

On Thursday 7th November, Dave from The Royal British Legion, came in to take a Whole School Assembly about the meaning and importance of Remembrance Day.

 

Live Music week…..

On Monday 4th November we had a visit from Shropshire Music Service’s Soul Band.

They played for the whole school and we all had a great time, singing along, clapping and dancing.  As well as having a lot of fun, the group told us about the music and used games and activities to demonstrate musical elements such as harmony, tempo, dynamics, texture, timbre and pitch.

It was fantastic to hear such quality live music in our school.

Children In Need……..

On Friday 15th November the children came to School wearing bright clothes in return for a donation to this year’s Children In Need Appeal. There were some great outfits and everyone had great fun!

The Friend’s of Crowmoor sold hot dogs and cakes on the playground after School to raise funds too.

Operation Christmas Child Gift Box Donations……….

A big thank you to everyone who donated to this very worthwhile cause. The shoe boxes were all collected on Tuesday by volunteers from the Samaritans Purse.

Tree Planting in the School Grounds………….

The School’s Eco Schools Group have been busy planting trees, despite the weather, to improve the outdoor environment and encourage wildlife. Crowmoor has worked in partnership with the Woodland Trust environmental charity for the last five years to plant hundreds of trees and many metres of hedgerow. Every pupil in the school has been given an opportunity to plant a tree over the last two years, to make their contribution to offset carbon production. The Eco Schools Group meets every Friday with the support of Mrs Carroll-Lewis, the Eco-Schools Champion.

Assembly With Tom & Ash From Shrewsbury Abbey……………….

On Wednesday Tom and Ash from the Abbey Church came in to visit and lead the Whole School Assembly. The children really look forward to their visits and are always encouraged to participate.

Our star of the show………….

We took a group of pupils to watch the Theatre Severn performance of Aladdin. We also managed to get our star pupil Rocco Larter on the stage! Well done Rocco you were fab! The children who attended thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
