Thank you to those children and parents who have asked about this week’s blog box competition – we forgot to include it on this week’s Headteacher Blog.
This week’s blog box question is: What date is World of Work Week happening in school?
Yet another great session in our Fizz Pop Science Club – this week our children were ‘Marble Run Engineers’.
The challenge was to put their engineering to the test in order to build the best structure to carry the marbles over bouncy towers and radical rails!
They certainly had some great ideas resulting in a great marble run.
Yesterday, after school, the first rehearsal took place for our KS2 production of Annie.
WOW! We were absolutely blown away by the children’s commitment and the hard work they had all done at home, learning lines and making note of directions in their scripts.
There were some amazing New York accents by the children and some strong acting and reactions too.
If this is the standard from week one of rehearsals, you’ll be in for one heck of a treat by performance night at the Brewhouse.
Well done to all of you!
Our sponsored scoot / cycle coordinated by the FPTA has had to be rescheduled due to clashes with other events.
The new date for the event will be Thursday, 11th July 2019, 4pm.
Please keep the sponsor forms, as these can be used for the rescheduled event.
This afternoon, the children embraced this term’s new ‘Golden Time’ activities with much enthusiasm.
Each term we have 6 different activities which the children can choose from (providing they’ve not lost any of their golden time during the week).
This term’s activities are:
Yoga – led by Mrs Weston
Top Trumps – led by Mrs Mailer / Mrs Harris / Mrs Thorne / Mrs Brace
Computing – led by Miss Newton
Movie – led by Miss Newton
Origami – led by Miss Bains
Rounders – led by Mrs Abbott
Golden Time is a lovely time to share, as each activity group has children of all ages.
Today was the first our of Fizz-Pop Science clubs and the session for this week was called ‘Crazy Chemists!
The children explored chemical reactions in this hands-on session. From colour changing liquids to slimy putty – and every child got to take their pot of putty home. I think the hardest part for them will be not being able to play with it for 12 hours! We even had some cool mini explosions – which certainly made us all jump!!
The children are incredibly excited about what experiments they will be carrying out next week!
The first fencing club of the term started today and boy, did they have a great time.
The hall was set up with all the gym equipment in place so the children could re-enact scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean – it looked incredible fun, scrambling on cargo nets, walking the plank etc.
Should your child wish to join the club, there’s still time, just click here to take you to our After School Clubs page for further information.
Tuesday 7th May: 9 am until 10 am
It is that time of the term where Mr. Smith brings in a range of cakes and invites parents and carers into school for an informal chat about what we have planned this term. New parents are welcome, in addition to regular attendees.
Some topics being discussed this time are:
- Wrap-Around for next year (an update!)
- Termly Report Cards for next year – reporting on your child’s progress
- World of Work Week
- Feedback on Golden Time
We hope to see you there!
