Our Stratton key values are: Friendship, Respect, Responsibility, ForgivenessPeace and Truthfulness. Out of the many Christian values these were selected by the children, staff, parents and governors as our key values for school life.
Our home school value this term is TRUST. Click on the link below to find out more.
It is important that our Christian Values are evident and encouraged in our daily lives within our school community. In recognition of children who show responsibility, respect, friendship, who are at peace or truthful, we now have a "values tree" where their photo will be placed. The tree, in the school hall, has colour coded leaves representing our chosen key Christian Values. When a child is spotted by a member of our school community to be demonstrating one of the Values, their photo will go on the appropriate colour leaf in celebration.
We had two great days learning outside with Mr Russell. We worked together in teams to build pirate ships; hoist the flags; decide which jobs we did and didn’t want to do (no-one wanted to be a power monkey); build shelters to keep us safe when we were marooned on a desert island and lots more! Firing the cannons was great fun but we did have to make sure we had the range right as the cannon balls (water balloons) would fly right over the top of the ship. Tt was part of the captain’s job to make sure everyone’s ideas were listened to and took an equal part.
It was great fun and we learned lots about pirate life and how to work together as a team!
Thank you Mr Russell.
