Anti-Bullying Week

Last week was anti-bullying week at the Valley. Each class designed their own poster and the school council decided the winners. On Friday 17 November the school council did an assembly about bullying. This included a play about a boy who gets bullied by some cruel kids. At the end, there were four important phrases that were shared. Remembering the words will help us not to be a bully and will help us to be a buddy instead. Stand together, stand strong, always be friends and don’t let anything come between your friendship.

A super play about Anti-Bullying!

Keep logging in for further news!

Aliens Love Underpants


This week in Reception we have been reading a book called ‘Aliens Love Underpants’.

We received a message from the aliens today and found out that they now want to wear ties instead of underpants!

We tried on some ties and wrote down descriptions of them.
