On Friday 8th September 2023, Year 2 began their new topic ‘Inter Nation Media Station’ with a wonderful inspiration day. Children dressed up as news reporters to investigate and present their own news about a tiger on the loose! They also presented their own weather forecast and took part in a talk show to discuss Is the Big Bad Wolf really bad. The children used iMovie app to create their own news channel! Well done Year 2!
Riddle me this! Year 1 learnt all about riddles in English and wrote clever riddles about nocturnal animals linked to their “Light up the World” Topic learning. We chose six finalists whose poems were sent to be part of the Young Writers Poetry Safari competition. ALL of the talented finalists have been selected to have their poems published in a Young Writers Anthology!
First day back at school after the Easter break and the children in Year 4 were visited by firefighters from the local community fire station.
They delivered the SPARKS programme which aims to develop children's knowledge and understanding of fire and road safety. Areas covered were the risks and causes of fire, fire escape plans, how to make an emergency call, the impact of hoax calls and road and in-car safety.
Children also learned what to do if their clothing ever caught fire- STOP, DROP and ROLL!
Before the end of the session, all the children got the opportunity to take a look inside and around the fire engine.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and we are grateful to the fire service for taking the time to help keep our children safe.
On Tuesday 14th March 2023, Year 3 had a wonderful time at Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara. Mr Sandhu was our trip guide and he gave us a detailed insight into Sikhism and the running of the Gurduara. The children were all brilliant and asked a lot of well thought out questions. The visit ended with the children sampling some of the Indian cuisine. It was lovely to see their enthusiasm. Well done Year 3!
The whole school had a fantastic time with Lawrence Prestidge. KS1 and KS2 enjoyed a special assembly where he shared his own poetry book. Lawrence also led Year 2 and Year 5 workshops where children generated ideas for their own character and written character descriptions. Parents also came to meet and greet the author and bought a signed copy of his book!
Ahoy there me hearties! Year 2 had a swashbuckling Inspiration Day! They designed and described their own pirates, created a soundscape linked to pirate ship and ocean, sang pirate songs, shouted commands and composed their own pirate dance.
Year 6 enjoyed a fabulous day as Ancient Egyptians learning all about the pyramids, the mummification process and creating their own side-portraits of an Egyptian Pharaoh using mixed media! They also worked in teams and using problem solving and communication skills to work together in order to escape from an Egyptian tomb. Thankfully all groups managed to escape with minutes to spare!
