Year 6 have certainly been lucky with the weather this week for their residential trip to Caythorpe. They have all had a fantastic time and I’m sure, once they have caught up on their sleep, they will be full of happy memories of their time away. A huge thank you to Miss Weston, Mrs Cross and Mrs Gibson for accompanying the children on their trip.
Over the past couple of weeks, Amy, Mia, Jessie and Micheala from Year 5 have held and judged a dancenastics competition open to the whole school. Pupils performed a dance/gymnastics routine in front of the judges. Everyone who entered did fantastically well. The winners were:-
- 1st – Amelia and Gracie (Y5)
- 2nd – Hannah (Y5)
- 3rd – Madeleine, Clarissa and Holly (Y5)
Some of our Year 3 and 4 children have been very busy at lunchtimes this week on the school field working together to make the longest possible daisy chain they can! Each day they have been able to make a longer one, finally reaching 9½ metres on Thursday!
Well done to our fantastic daisy chain makers, Benjamin, Taigan, Darren, Leona, Asima, Aimee-Leigh, Gracey and Nader.
Year 3 visited the British Museum today as part of their topic work on the Aztecs. They carried out an investigation, looking at all the artefacts in the Aztec gallery which they carried out with a great deal of enthusiasm. They saw the famous Turquoise Serpent, which played an important role in Aztec religion and was associated with many gods and goddesses. One of the talking points of the day was when we took a photo of the class on the steps of the museum and the nearby police decided to photobomb them! Everyone found this very funny! The children were beautifully behaved, a member of the public in the museum commented how well they were behaving which is always lovely to hear!
Thank you to our parent helpers, Mrs Chapman and Mrs Morosanu, and to Mrs Dada who joined Mrs Davey and Mrs Hills on the trip.
Year 1 caught the train to Blackfriars to visit the Florence Nightingale Museum today as part of their school topic. As they walked along the Embankment, they also managed to look at the famous landmarks, such as Big Ben and the London Eye. When they reached the museum, they were met by ‘Florence Nightingale’ who told the children all about her life and carried out some role play (with the help of some of our pupils) of important events that took place. The children were then split into groups to look round the museum and learned all about Florence Nightingale’s important work and the legacy she left.
Thank you to all our helpers, Mrs Doherty, Mrs Gudmundsdottir, Miss Moore and Mrs Carberry who joined Mrs Wright and Miss Tyler to accompany the children to the museum.
It will be a little quieter in school next week as Year 6 go off on their residential trip to Caythorpe. I am sure they will all have a wonderful time and come back happy if not rather tired!
Miss Weston, Mrs Cross and Mrs Gibson will be accompanying the children – no doubt they will come back a little tired too! We look forward to seeing Year 6 back in school after half term.
