Year 3 – Trip to the Collection Museum in Lincoln
On Wednesday 21st March, Year 3 classes went to the Collection Museum in Lincoln.
The children went to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians and take part in lots of fun activities. The children had the chance to make their own artefacts and build a sarcophagus! They even got to make their own mummy for the inside.
After that, they re-enacted a play about Seth and Osiris and the battle to the thrown by Horus. All the children had lots of fun dressing up and being the different characters. Some of the children looked a little funny but they knew the story very well!
Then, they took part in a dig to find different artefacts and they had the chance to be field archaeologists for the day! They dug for their findings, measured and recorded what they had found.
Lastly, they had to pull out the organs from a mummy, wrap the body and place the organs in jars. It was really fun and they had to follow the order of the Priest and the Gods.
Everyone had an amazing day and the children really learnt a lot!
As part of our fundraising efforts for Sport Relief we have Paul Bastock – Goalkeeper for Wisbech Town coming into school for a Question and Answer session with the children. Paul used to play for Boston United back in 1992 and was voted as Boston’s ‘all time cult hero’ by BBC viewers.
We are looking forward to his visit!!
Carlton Road Academy Football Team have been very successful again this year, reaching the final of the Woodthorpe Cup.
To celebrate their success, all Carlton Road pupils and their parents are invited to watch the final, which will be held at Boston United football ground on Wednesday 28th March 2018.
WOODTHORPE CUP FINAL
Carlton Rd v Tower Road – kick off 4pm
We hope that as many pupils and parents as possible will be able to attend to create a great occasion and to celebrate the teams’ achievements this year.
If your child is intending to watch the football match, they must be supervised by an adult, and will not be the responsibility of Carlton Road Academy staff.
We look forward to seeing you there!
On Monday 19 March the Gardening Club met a Very Important Person. The Prince of Wales is a patron of Age UK and his visit to its offices in town gave him the chance to meet staff, volunteers, beneficiaries and other members of the community including our very own Gardening Club.
Mia Maddison spoke to the prince about how the school’s gardening club had won an Age UK scarecrow competition, but also why her jumper was purple, rather than red like the other pupils present, explaining it was because she had a special role at the school which saw her act as a mentor to younger children.
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 eight 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!)
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.
To celebrate World Book Day 2018, we turned our doors into the book cover of the Class Book we were reading. Each year group had a chosen author. The children designed, drew, coloured and stuck every item for their door! They really were fantastic.
Winners of the door displays were Year 4 Tigers for KS2 and Year 2 Squirrels for KS1. Well done! Which one is your favourite?
Stephen from Asda came to visit us to show us how to make bread. We started the session by thinking about what ingredients we will need and then listening to the instructions.
We worked in small groups to make our own bread and then Stephen cooked it for us. We tasted the bread later in the day after we had shared our experiences and listened to the story of The Little Red Hen.
As part of our topic ‘ People Who Help Us’ we had the police visit us. We have been learning facts about the job of the police and how they help us. We have been discussing how to stay safe, road safety, stranger danger and what to do if we got lost. The children then tried on the police uniforms and have been playing with the police role-play, drawing pictures and reading and writing about the police.
