Rushall News

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week is Growing Together. Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential.

Bringing Cheer!

Over the last year, many people have been helping their neighbours and showing kindness towards others. One of these groups is the Upavon Buddy Scheme. Tim Turnball and the team deliver food or medicine and generally provide support and contact, making shielding or self-isolation a little easier. 

After hearing about the volunteers during a Collective Worship via Zoom, the children at Rushall C of E primary School wanted to help bring some cheer to the community. They felt it was important that those who are seeing fewer people know that they are being thought of. Pupils and Staff created around 50 paper 'bouquets' which were delivered by the local Buddy Schemes, to those who are less able to leave their homes. 

We have received many kind emails and notes of thanks from those who were given the flowers and Tim wanted us to know

"They're going down a treat. Everybody is so happy and grateful."

Compared to the week-by-week efforts of many, our contribution was small. However, it has helped us to learn that small acts of kindness can have a big impact.

Bringing Cheer!

We are very proud to have joined a worthwhile and creative local project, Pewsey's Creative Communities 'Spring to Life' Art Trail

7 schools and many local groups and businesses have joined together to create artwork to bring cheer to local residents. The children of Rushall have made some fantastic contributions including an entire dawn chorus of birds perched amid the blossom in the window of Pewsey Heritage Centre and Weaving. Look out for our class emblems on the River Walk between the Heritage Centre and Scotchel Nature Reserve. The children's individual weaving is hung throughout the reserve. The trail is opening today and will be there throughout the Easter Holidays - enjoy!

Spring to Life!

Our lanterns can now be seen until Christmas Day in the window of Pewsey Heritage Centre as part of the Streets of Light Trail.

Spiritual Day 2020 During our Spiritual Day on the 1st December, we found inspiration from the Biblical verse ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ John 1:5 Reflecting on loneliness, we created Christmas cards to send to residents of a local care home, villagers and parishioners. We also wrote 100 messages of hope on lanterns which we used to create an Advent Spiral. In a very special Worship, each child added their lantern to the spiral, walking in silence while listening to Gregorian chant. Our lanterns can now be seen until Christmas Day in the window of Pewsey Heritage Centre as part of the Streets of Light Trail.

Stardust Class music review with Felix Hagan

Stardust class have been doing music reviews in class. The aim being to expose them to music genres and musicians they may not have listened to before. Last week we reviewed Felix Hagan and The Family's song 'Gene Kelly'. Mrs Archer sent Felix some questions the class wanted to ask and we have received this wonderful video response from him.

As part of our Topic and Science work, Stardust Class made butter like the Vikings did. We had to shake the double cream to make the buttermilk and fat separate. Once it had separated, we put it through a sieve to catch the butterfat and discard the milk. We sprinkled some salt onto the butterfat and mixed it in. Then we had made butter! We tried it on toast and it tasted good

Meditation around our lit diya lamps. What a wonderful end to our Diwali Week!

More Diwali events today! Across the school, we were lucky enough to participate in a yoga session as part of our Collective Worship. We are very grateful to Jasmine Sodhi who led us through the story of Rama and Sita using postures and breathing exercises. Staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed the chance to stretch, relax and escape into the world of the Hindu tale. Thank you Jasmine! 😊

At Rushall, we have had a fantastic start to our Diwali week. We were joined virtually in Worship today by Sakhya and Kavita Prema. They taught us about the festival of Diwali and what it means to people of the Hindu faith. We look forward to exploring the story of Rama and Sita in tomorrow's Worship. 😊

We remembered everyone in our Collective Worship today and there was silence across the school. #remembranceday

Remembrance Day at Rushall.

Dear Rushall Primary School Thank you for supporting our Harvest Appeal! Your support this year, particularly during such uncertain times, means that we’re able to continue to provide vital food and supplies to people in crisis over the coming months. We received an amazing 2480kg of food, and we couldn’t be more grateful. From everyone at Devizes and District Foodbank and the people we serve, thank you. Your support really does make a difference, and we hope you’ll consider supporting us again in the future. Kind regards Liz Starling Devizes and District Foodbank
