Today, Pupils’ Parliament held a bake sale to raise money for Children in Need. They had a brilliant afternoon selling the treats that had been kindly donated, thank you!
The Year 6 children have been given a career talk from a solicitor. Rachel Butler came in and spoke to us all about how she wanted to get into law and her journey into becoming a solicitor. The children were very interested and asked some great questions.
Some of our Year 6 pupils had the opportunity to meet a poet and writer called Kai Bailey. In the session, the children started to prepare their own poems in groups which they will later perform at the Sam Newson Centre. From this, a select few children will be chosen to perform their poems at London’s west end theatre.
Year 6’s have also been given a career talk from PSCOs Marie and Renata. They have spoken to the children about the journey they had through school to the job they do now. The children have also asked lots of interesting questions regarding the work they do now and have done previously. The advice they gave to our children was to achieve the best that they can which comes under our aim to “ASPIRE”
During art week the children researched the different types of pots that were used in Ancient Greece – as different pots had different uses. Using their research, the children designed their own pots before creating them using air-dry clay. Once the clay pots were dry, the children practised their design patterns before painting their pots using black paint.
Yesterday a few Year 1 parents attended a Phonics course. Their children joined them later. Together they participated in fun phonics activties. It was a most enjoyable afterfoon. A massive thank you to all who attended and participated in the activities.
This afternoon the children have been baking some palm oil free cakes and cookies ready for our Rainforest quiz and bake sale tomorrow afternoon, We hope to see as many of you there as possible! It’s going to be an excellent afternoon!
What a lovely day we’ve had today! The year 3 pupils were impeccably behaved on today’s trip to Flag Fen. The children learnt more about our current topic, the stone age, and built on their existing knowledge. We had a lovely finish to the day, sitting in a roundhouse with a lit fire, being told a story. We are extremely proud of our children as they shared their previous learning with others and were very confident with this. Here are a few photos……
Year 6 had the exciting opportunity to visit Lincoln Castle last week in order to find out more about crime and punishment during the Victorian period. They had the chance to walk along the castle walls whilst learning plenty of facts about the punishments that people used to receive. The children were also taken into a Victorian prison where they got to see the conditions of which people had to live in.
The children also went off to take part in various activities. The activites included a Prison Escape Game based on a prisoner who managed to escape twice! We then went off on a Prison Tour and Chore and then to the Chapel. The children also went on a Crime and Punishment Wall Tour of the castle. An enjoyable day for everyone involved and an experience for all.
The children are currently enjoying their NSPCC assembly and have all met Buddy! We are learning about how to speak out if we feel unsafe or need help. Thank you for letting your child come to school in non-uniform and for your contributions to the NSPCC charity.
