This Friday saw the whole school participate in two fun-filled events. In the morning the Golden Mile was enjoyed by all. It was beneficial towards not only our physical health but also our mental health. At the end of the school day, the children paraded their beautiful lanterns that they had started to make during #Hello Yellow Day. We are hoping that many of the children will take these lanterns to the Castle Cary Lantern and Carnival Parade on Saturday.. Fingers crossed the weather stays dry!
On Friday, the whole school dressed in yellow to raise awareness of the importance of mental health. Children and staff took part in assemblies and activities throughout the day, to ensure that we support one another and those in our community, whenever it is needed.

Thank you to all who attended the book fair this week.We were overwhelmed by the amount of children and parents that came to view and purchase their books. At present we are hoping that the commission we receive, through the selling of the books, will exceed £300, which will be used to purchase new books for each class. Thank you to all who has made this a huge success this year.
This week in our celebration assembly, Rupert, Lucy, Willem and Albert received their certificates and medals received from Wincanton Library, following their successful participation in the Summer Reading Challenge.
The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in European Day of Languages this week. The day aimed to promote the rich linguistic diversity of Europe and raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning for everyone. Please visit class pages to view more wonderful photos from the day.
At Countess Gytha Primary School we have Language Ambassadors who promote the school’s positive ethos in language learning.
Congratulations to our new Language Ambassadors for this year. These children have been chosen to represent our school as great role models, promoting the importance of language and the diverse world we live in.
The children will play an important role in the organisation of Language Days in our school and closely work with our Languages teachers to promote the importance of learning languages in primary schools.
This week, Pete shared stories from around the world embracing the power of creativity.
The KS2 workshops he delivered to the children focused on the contributions of key figures in the race equality / pro diversity movements around the world such as Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela .
All of the sessions contained opportunities to learn greetings in other languages and an optimistic view of an individual’s ability to make the world a better place. All of the children that took part certainly left with huge smiles of enjoyment on their faces!
