School Community

In this section we will be proudly sharing the wonderful initiatives our children are involved in to support others within our school. We will also highlight opportunities that may be available to help our families.

Thank you to everyone for supporting the VIPS at East Borough community. 

 

Snug as a Bug 2023

Following World Book Day, we held two ‘Snug as a Bug’ after school events where parents/carers and their children were invited into school to share a hot chocolate, biscuit and a good book!  These events were well attended with lots of children enjoying sharing books, listening to stories and swapping books.

During the event, we held a pre-loved book swap where children brought in books they have finished reading and swapped them for something different.  We raised £250 from hot chocolate and biscuits sales, which will fund more new books for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you to all the parents/carers who supported this event, and to the super EB staff who organised and attended the event and read stories to the children.

Nepalese Cooking with Year 5

In December 2022, Year 5 had a lovely morning cooking Momos – a traditional Nepalese dumpling.  We were lucky enough to be taught how to make these from scratch by some of our wonderful mums.  Children made their own dough, chopped and mixed various ingredients and created the traditional dumpling shape.  We all had a wonderful time and the children ate hundreds of dumplings between them!  We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to our Nepalese families who generously provided this wonderful opportunity for the children, as well as to all the staff and parent helpers who gave up their time and lent us equipment to make this possible.

Our children, parents and carers all had a brilliant time at the Coach House East Borough families’ Christmas party on Friday 2nd December! Everyone really enjoyed the opportunity to let their hair down and have fun.  We witnessed some fantastic dancing in our musical statues game, seriously impressive limbo action and eye watering perseverance in the ‘how long can you stand on one leg’ competition!  Thank you to everyone who took part in our raffle and congratulations to all winners - we raised an incredible £745!!  The PTA would like to thank our hosts Kate and Steve Francis and we look forward to working together on our next community event.

Year 5 share experiences with a mountain medic.

On Friday, 25th November, Mr Mandal came into school to share with Year 5 his experiences of working as a medic with teams of mountain climbers. Year 5 have been learning about mountains in Geography and writing balanced arguments in English, debating whether people should be allowed to climb Mount Everest, so Mr Mandal’s knowledge was both interesting and informative. The children also had the opportunity to handle some of the equipment that would be used when mountain climbing. We would like to thank Mr Mandal for giving up his time to enhance our learning.

 

KS2 Playground - Wooden Play Trail

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our PTA, work has started to replace the wooden play trail on the KS2 playground.  These pictures are of the work in action and we can’t wait until it is completed.

Being a 'buddy'

Being a ‘buddy’ is one of the ways in which our older children can support our younger ones.

The Year 5 children are responsible for escorting EYFS and Year 1 pupils from the main hall at lunchtime. They remind them to walk quietly and safely down the corridors before helping them to put on their coats ready to go outside. 

The Year 5 children really enjoy taking on this additional responsibility and it is lovely to see how the younger children respond to this.

2021-2022 Language Fair

This was an opportunity to celebrate the cultural richness and diversity of our school and enable us to come together as a community and celebrate! 

The event was a huge success! Children came to school dressed in either their national dress or clothes that represented their country.
They had the opportunity to visit 12 different ‘countries’, completing their passport as they went. The children took part in various activities such as tasting food, using Chinese fans, taking part in quizzes, practising writing in different languages, learning a little of the language, exploring objects and understanding facts about the countries they visited! 

Please click here for the Language Fair Newsletter and here to see videos of the Scottish Country Dancing. You may also view more photos from the day by clicking here.
