Last night our Year 5s had the opportunity of a lifetime, performing with 450 Young Lincolnshire Musicians at the Royal Albert Hall in the School Proms. The CEO of Music For Youth said at the end of the show he had never seen a performance like it! We were so proud of them!
We celebrated World Book Day in school by dressing up as our favourite book character or a word. This year was the 25th anniversary for World Book Day so we did lots of exciting activities in school, as well as joined in with the online events set up by the World Book Day organisation. The children loved dressing up as their favourite characters and brought in their books to share with the rest of the class. We also used the library and invited parents in to read with their child. It was amazing to see so many children and families enjoying our books!
For Red Nose Day this year, Carlton Road Academy took part in a colour splash! All the children picked a colour and came into school wearing as much of that colour as possible. We also took part in a colour dash where we moved around the track in fun ways and finally used our different colours to make a rainbow. We all had an amazing day and made a difference with our donations!
In Year One we have been looking at the text “the dinosaur that pooped the past” this links to our dinosaur topic this term. In the story the boy’s grandma is celebrating her birthday and we have made lists and invitations including adjectives. We planned our own birthday celebration around this. Today the children experienced a party, they played games, sang happy birthday and enjoyed some party food. Well done year one, you behaved impeccably!
In English, the Year 3 children enjoyed creating their own fires to replicate the fires that people from the Stone Age would have used to cook with, keep warm and scare animals away. They used craft materials to build their fires and then made notes for each of the steps they made. They will use their notes over the next 2 weeks to write their own instructions for how to build a fire.
It’s almost the end of another school year and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy holiday and well-deserved break.
I am also writing to notify you that when your child/children return to school for the beginning of the new academic year on Thursday 2nd September 2021, we will be reverting back to our ‘old’ start and finish times that we had prior to the pandemic. These will be as follows:
8.40am – First bell will ring, school gates will be opened and children will be allowed into school
8.50am – A second bell will ring for Registration
3.15pm – School bell will ring to signal the end of the school day
If you have any questions or queries with regard to the timings of the school day, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

This week is local heritage week. We have been thinking about key landmarks and places in Boston. We have been making large scale maps using train tracks, construction materials and mark making materials. We have also been thinking about our journey to school and what we see along the way. Also the children used their observation and field work skills to map out the surroundings of our school. We learnt about the different compass points and then sat in different places around the school (North, East, South and West) and drew what we could see. I’m sure you’ll agree that the children have produced some fantastic work from this. They are able to remember lots of key facts about Boston and its surroundings!
