Anti-Bullying Week 2016 - 14th to 18th November
This year the theme for ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ is:
‘Power For Good'
At Carr Hill we are committed to stamping out bullying throughout the year, not just for one week. We are focusing our assemblies and circle time activities on an anti-bullying theme for this particular week, along with schools around the country.
It is a great opportunity to reinforce the message about how Carr Hill approaches bullying, including ensuring our pupils know what to do if they are being bullied, and that everyone should take bullying seriously.
Every class will be showing the wonderful work they have carried out linked to ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ on their class blog.
On Sunday 13th November, fourteen children from Years 3 and 4 turned out in the cold to attend the Remembrance Service in the Town Square to commemorate the fallen of two world wars.
The School's Button Club had kindly designed and made a wreath of poppies, which the children lay at the Cenotaph during the service.
Thank you to all those who attended and supported the event, including the families and relatives of the children who stayed for the service.
During the week leading up to Remembrance Day, children had the opportunity to purchase poppies at school, raising much needed funds for The British Legion to continue it's wonderful work.
War Graves Visit
On Monday 7th November, a group of Carr Hill’s Year 5 children visited Retford Cemetery to place remembrance crosses on the graves of soldiers who lost their lives during the wars.

KS1 Multi Skills Festival at the Elizabethan
The children from Carr Hill had a fantastic morning at the KS1 multi skills festival at the Elizabethan. The children were split into small groups and then were taught a selection of skills by the Elizabethan pupils. The activities which the children took part in included balancing, throwing, catching and relay type games. The children really enjoyed the morning and listened really carefully to advice they were given from the older children who ran the sessions.
