Last week, pupils from Class 3 took part in an informative workshop, presented by and Albert - a local business from Chester who actively support craftspeople within their village communities, particularly in West Africa and Asia. During the workshop, we looked at four different countries where interesting and usual items are made, by hand, in a very delicate process. We had the opportunity to experiment with some of the traditional instruments which have been made and we looked closely at the craftsmanship and detail that has gone into these beautiful items.
After our fantastic workshop, the whole school attended a special assembly, which was presented by and Albert.
We now have a selection of small gifts and musical instruments for purchase in Class 3. All of the purchases in aid of this brilliant cause will enable and Albert to continue the good work that they are doing - visiting schools to deliver workshops on buying Fairtrade and raising awareness of the process and the hard work that goes into the crafting of some of these products.
Over the next week, Miss Porter will have the items in her classroom for sale. If you child would like to have a look at the items or make any purchases, this can be done at lunchtimes or at the end of the day. It is recommended that children wanting to purchase an item bring no more than £5 with them.

Parent Zone is packed with important safety information for parents and families of KS1-KS4 children. It contains expert advice on many issues, such as healthy screen time, social media, messaging, gaming and in-game chat. We would urge ALL parents to take a moment to browse their website and help keep our children safe on the Internet.

We understand the popularity of the Fortnite game amongst older children and the difficulties it can present in homes where there are younger siblings. The game comes with a 12+ age restriction and is therefore not suitable for children of Primary School age. If you believe your child, under the age of 12, has access to the game, please read the Parent Guidance and take a moment to watch this Internet safety Video

Remembrance Sunday, which falls on 11 November in 2018, is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom. This year's Remembrance Sunday marks a very poignant milestone - the end of the First World War centenary.
Pupils of Crowton Christ Church Primary School are privileged to be participating in the service this year, by laying a school wreath and reading the role of honour. The service will be held at Crowton Christ Church at 10:30am on 11th November.
Please could parents let us know whether they will be attending the service, by completing the Remembrance Service survey on the School Spider App.

This term, Class 4 are learning all about Africa.
To be able to speak to an African visitor to the school would be very beneficial in achieving our targets and advancing our learning during this topic. If anyone is in contact with someone of African heritage or knows of an African family that I could contact, please let me know at your earliest convenience.
Having a discussion with someone who has lived in Africa and can explain different cultural and traditional differences, would be enthralling for the class.
