Today many wonderful creations came into school for our egg competition. There were all different shapes and sizes and many very creative ideas. We look forward to announcing the winners in assembly on Friday. Many thanks to our PTA for donating prizes.
What does it mean to be a child in 2017? Last Friday in celebration assembly we were inspired by the children sharing their voice about the humanitarian crisis in East Africa. This week in assemblies we will be exploring what it means to be a child and our rights around this.
How can we use our voice?
How can we share our voice?
To consolidate our Maths learning this week, Year 6 have had great fun playing battleships with a partner of their choice. They showed great maturity in their choices of their partner and thought about themselves as a learner rather than working with their friends. Year 6, how did you decide who you wanted to learn with this morning?
This academic year our LSAs are leading a project of change. Each project is designed to develop pupil independence in different ways. Over the year the LSAs have created posters as part of their project plan and shared these with a widening audience. We have been asked to share them at a forthcoming Learning Network Event hosted by The Centre of Excellence for Social Learning.
Why is pupil independence so important to learning and how does this develop life long learners?
This week we received a thank you certificate from War Child to acknowledge the money we raised at our Christmas Carol Concert. In total, we raised just over £100 for children living in areas affected by war. Many thanks for your donations.
This morning, Year 6 welcomed Councillor Andrew Scarth to their class. They were extremely enthusiatic and engaged in the role of a councillor. The children were given the opportunity to ask questions and they shared there learning both in and out of the school with him.
We would like to say a big thank you to Councillor Andrew Scarth for taking time to come and see our school.
On Monday afternoon, Year 6 followed on a discussion from assembly about what it means to be me? They talked openly about their personalities and discussed how unique we all are.
They decided what they wanted to make their fish out of and then decided what they wanted to put on their fish which would represent them.
This week in assemblies we shared a book and inspirational words and phrases from the inside cover. We didn’t discuss why but every class has been asked to create a fish to represent themselves.
Why do you think we have shared this story? How will it help us as learners?
Today our community dug deep and raised an impressive £543.30. Children and adults embraced bad hair day with great spirit and creativity. We had everything from hair in coke bottles to wacky wigs.
Some of our Year Six pupils led part of our assembly to share information about how G.O.S.H. use the money to fund research, treatment and support to families.
Many thanks for all your generosity.
