Year Two spent the afternoon at St Barnabas learning about the importance of the Easter Story. They were welcomed by Rev Justine who gave them all a tour round the church. Every pupil acted out the Easter Story and asked Rev Justine lots of important questions. Take a look at how our pupils got on below.
Year Two has an exciting day this week when they all brought in their bikes and scooters for a road safety lesson on the main playground. They all understood the reasons for wearing a protective helmet, to stop, look and listen when crossing and to be extra careful when on a bike and a scooter. Please take a look at the following pictures.
Today, Year 5 with the support of Mr Smith managed the KS1 Sports Festival for Year 1 & 2. Our Young Leaders have been working very hard over the last few weeks at creating their own break time games for the younger year groups. These have involved ball games, jumping and running activities as well as throwing. Please take a look at some of the activities below.
Mrs Donohue held an assembly in the hall today for all classes on Neurodiversity.
The pupils discussed what this term is and learnt that every one of us can learn in different ways. We learnt about different learning needs and how to develop strategies to help each other through difficult and challenging situations. Each of us are unique and interpret the world in different ways. You can still follow your dreams even though somebody may be different in the way that they interact with other people, the way they learn and the way that they act. There was lots to reflect on.
During Science Week, the pupils and staff were so happy that this year we welcomed a wonderful company – Sublime Science – to our school to carry out workshops with every class. Mad Mel was our visiting scientist for the day who showed the pupils how to change the colour of bubbles, make slime, create pressure so that a rocket can launch high into the air, solids into liquids and vice versa to name just a few.
Please find below a selection of photos which document the fun day. A huge thanks goes to FOBS for their very generous donation towards this science day.
