Olivia Lewis was delighted to be asked to help switch on the Oswestry Christmas Lights bringing Christmas cheer to Oswestry - See the lovely festive pictures below.
Harvest donations collected during eat well week have been delivered to OsNosh, Oswestry FoodBank and OsWarm.
The wonderful pumpkins created by Morda pupils were delivered by Lottie, Adele, Hattie and Isla to Hope House for their children's Halloween trail around the hospice.
Thank you to Morrisons Supermarket for providing prizes for EatWell Week.
And a big 'Thank You' to all parents, carers, pupils and staff for your ongoing support, enthusiasm, kindness and generosity.
We talked about healthy food choices and studied the Eat Well Plate. We talked about healthier bread options and why whole grain is good for our diet. Everyone selected healthy ingredients and made a healthy harvest sandwich which we then shared with parents at our harvest tea.

On Friday our school library was transformed into ‘Cafe Morda’ for a special event which involved the reading champions becoming chefs for the day! The reading champions put on their chef’s hats and false moustaches and chose different genres of books that they thought the pupils in the different classes would like, setting out trays of poetry, biographies, non-fiction and fiction to be delivered to the tables for the visiting classes to sample. Pupils completed a menu plan, choosing a book from each different genre for each course of a meal, with many taking away a new book to read which they hadn’t considered before.
Family members and carers visited the library after school to see the wide range of new books available to borrow and to experience the ‘Cafe’.
Pupils in Shamrocks Class described how they enjoyed the French style of the Cafe and liked trying out new books, especially poetry. Well done Morda reading champions for hosting a great event! Well done Mrs H Jones!! - For more photos please go to the Our Learning Reading page
CLEVER NEVER GOES is the new campaign that teaches children how to stay safe from abduction whether they are outside or online.It’s the modern, child-friendly alternative to the out-dated and fundamentally flawed ‘Stranger Danger’ message. Rather than fearing the worst in everyone they don’t know, Clever Never Goes helps children to recognise specific situations that are unsafe and gives them the tools to respond.
All children attended an assembly today, Thursday 29th September, to launch the campaign.

St Oswald's Church Civic Commemoration Service Marking the Death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Yesterday two Morda pupils, Aaron Hart and Artemis Morris, represented Morda Primary School at the Queen's commemoration service at St Oswald's Church Oswestry. They made us very proud as they read the beautiful tributes they had written. We hope you will enjoy reading them as we pay tribute to HRH Queen Elizabeth II on this her funeral day.
