Remembrance Poems Remember those who shed their blood for our freedom. Those who cure men of the army from the most fatal disease, death. Remember those who died so that we can be free. Remember good, who saves many lives. Who helps to fight our battles. Give sorrow, hope and happiness those people who fight, cry and die for us. Remember those who bare with another death. By Marney Chamberlain, Year 6
The day the soldiers set off The day they did it for us The day the day remembrance is kept in the field The day the day we wipe our tears The day they fell The day the day silence is kept The day the day we hope they come back Oscar Randal, Year 6
Remember, Remember the 11 th of November Remember, Remember. All the souls who died, and all the people that lied, just to go to war, and us it was for. To fight for their country, England, where they battled hard on the land of Flanders field, where their lives where sealed. The sound of the gun, and the people who thought it would be fun, are dead now, their parents asking how. Remember, Remember. By Dom De Ponte year 6 Ho Ho Home!

Operation Christmas Child Thank you for kindly donating a shoebox to those less fortunate. That small gift will make a child as happy as can be, so thank you everyone in St. Anne’s. We managed to bring in 136 shoe boxes, but next year we are aiming even higher. Click on the logo to visit the web site Ho Ho Home!

Learning Journey Celebration Year 4 First we drew Tudor portraits with Mrs. Day I sketched Jane Seymour. We showed our parents our paintings. Next we performed our Tudor play, which we also showed to our parents. I played the Duke of Westminster’s servant and the Duke was beheaded because he stole the Queen’s necklace! Overall I felt nervous but happy. By Dylan Coyle Ho Ho Home!
Christmas fair The Christmas fair was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the ice skating. I went on twice as it was such great fun. The hall had lots of nice things to buy. I bought a ducky money box. All together it was excellent. Thank you to the PTA for organising it all. Ho Ho Home!

Papal Visit 2010 Our school was chosen to have 8 lucky pupils taken to the Big Assembly in Twickenham. I was one. It was an unforgettable experience especially as we were at the front. The Pope was a really lovely person and in all the junior classes there is a poster containing everything he said. I will remember that day for a long time. Ho Ho Home! Efie Reilly
Swimming Gala When the day finally came we were all extremely exited about it. The first race came and went so quickly and after all the individual races (which were very well played) came the relays. We did well at our relays because the Year 6 boys won their race. Overall we came a fabulous second place of 2 nd. We all tried hard and did well in the end. By Erin Treacy Ho Ho Home!
School Council Ethan and I went to the Beacon School. We were talking about how we can celebrate the Olympics with children from all the other schools in the North Downs Confederation. We had a long talk about it and had a great time. We have lots of ideas that we will use at St Anne’s. If you’re in the school council you may get a chance to go there like me and Ethan.
