Year 3 went on a walk around Boston town in search for local landmarks. This links with the work they have been doing in Geography this term. They have been looking at why Boston is a good settlement and how the town has developed over time.
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.
Talented Taiko band.
In our final assembly the school were in for a real treat when the Taiko band performed. Earlier in the month the band took part in the bwaf fest and the audience were amazed by the confidence, concentration and energy of their performance – the whole school needed to see the pure talent for themselves.
See for yourselves why we are so proud of our musicians.
On Friday 5th July 2019, the Year 5 Mini Police Officers went for a Crime Prevention Walk around the local area with PC Tim Newall. They looked for examples of how people secured their homes. They had to pretend they were potential burglars and look for opportunities to enter a house illegally to steal valuables! Also during the walk, they discussed positives ways that people were protecting their properties. Following the walk, the Mini Police Officers worked together to create an assembly to share with the rest of the school.
In term 3 of this year some of the children were asked to participate in a STEM project. The project is used to inform children about engineering and to encourage children to pursue a career in this field. There were 6 children from reception, year one and year two that participated. Their task was to answer the question ‘If you were an engineer what would you do?’ The children met an engineer through an online interview- Miriam Christofeletti who is a robotics engineer. They then needed to think of a problem that they encounter in everyday life and think of an invention to solve this. The children were very creative and thought of ways to get to school quicker, a robot to help the police and a rug that turned into a cushion if you fell onto it out of bed.
Three of the children were shortlisted for the East midlands region and two children went on to win first place and were given regional awards for their inventions. We were invited to the awards ceremony at the University of Herefordshire where the two winning children and their families met engineers and were presented with awards.
All children were given a certificate for taking part and these were presented in our Star of the week assembly. Well done to all of you, what a fantastic result, your hard work and creativity paid off!
On Thursday 23rd May, a group of year 5 and 6 children went to see the musical, Aladdin, in the West End in London.
We left school at 9 and arrived at the Prince Edward Theatre, just in time to see the show.
The story of Aladdin is set in a time gone by. Aladdin is a poor street urchin who lives in a busy town in Arabia. Meanwhile Princess Jasmine gets tired of being forced to remain in the palace that overlooks the city and so she sneaks out and into the town and accidentally meets Aladdin. Immediately Aladdin falls in love with Princess Jasmine, but knows that he cannot marry her as he is not a prince. So, when he releases a genie from the lamp, one of his wishes is that he wants to become a prince. His wish is granted and eventually they marry and everyone lives happily ever after!
The show was incredible and featured all of the unforgettable songs from the much-loved Disney film.
The children loved it and their behaviour was impeccable. A truly great day!
On Tuesday 5th March, 10 year 5 pupils visited a local pre-school setting, Sandhills Day Nursery. They joined in with their world book day celebrations and went to read with their children. They visited each of the rooms sharing stories of their choice which were selected from our school library. It was a great experience for our pupils and some even said that they’d like to work in a nursery when they grow up!
As part of the children’s WWII topic, the year group visited the ‘We’ll Meet Again’ WWII museum at Freiston Shore. Split over two days, the children were greeted at the venue by staff in full character and uniform. They were educated about specific aspects of the war including rationing, the role of women, weaponry and the Blitz – a 10 minute Blitz experience was put on for the children so that they could feel how it must have felt to live during those times. Unlike other museums, the children were able to touch and hold genuine artefacts from WWII. These ranged from the destructive nature of bullets and weapons to the more light hearted topic of wooden toys children played with during wartime.
The children were fascinated by the stories and information being given to them and, as a result, their behaviour was impeccable – it was so impressive that the children will be receiving a free pass to the museum and 9 of them were given life-time passes as a result of their enthusiasm and willingness to listen and learn about such an important historic event. (they were given their own Home Guard badges as proof!)
I’ve suffered major anxiety and panic attacks from my childhood, probably. My mood was unpredictable at all. Anger and depression became my best friends. Doctor recommended me to take “klonopinshop.com” 5mg 2x on a daily basis and all has changed. Just follow the rules!
We must thank Paul, Linda and their cohort of volunteers who made the day such a memorable one for our year group – allowing the children access to resources, memorabilia and such extensive knowledge they can bring back into the classroom and their own work.
On the 20th November 2018, 4 students from Carlton Road Academy (from the year groups of year 5 and 6) were specially picked to the meet the author, G.P. Tayler, at Pioneers school. The day began when the 4 pupils where brought to the schools minivan and then taken to the Pioneers school. They put their coats and lunches into little lockers attached to the class room they brought in. After a while waiting for fellow schools who also had this opportunity, Tayler, who introduced himself as Greyson, began the first activity. The day began with stories which shared laughs throughout the room. He asked questions about fears and why closest are scary. But half way through his stories he said, you are actually learning. The morning was done and the children where brought outside for 5 minutes, though it was cold and most of the children stayed together. They were then brought inside to continue with the story sharing. Soon it was time for their lunch, they got the chance to buy one of his books, and get a signature from him in it. After lunch they wrote a character card (describing a character or person and used to help with writing) and they got challenged to use their character card in the beginning of a story. They talked about Describing character and even they got asked questions about settings, by given different moods etc. They ended the day with a scary story, about a big black dog… with red eyes who was told to be the murderer of person named Marys grandmother. After the story the 4 went back to school just a few minutes before the end of the day.
