Another of our World of Work representatives who is coming into school to work with the children, is an Artist.
This professional artist has a very close connection with us, as they actually attended Coton-in-the-Elms Primary School when they were younger!
The children will be working on a piece of art in the school grounds, creating and discovering along the way. The artwork will hopefully remain a permanent fixture for all to see.
The latest film version of Annie is being shown this week in Film Club. This is slightly different from the original film and also from the stage version which our KS2 children are rehearsing for at present.
As usual, to book your child’s place for after school Film Club, please visit SchoolMoney.
Just 7 days to go until the launch of our World of Work Week here in school and the preparations are well under way.
Another career which the children will be learning about is Forensic Science. We are incredibly excited to have a Forensic Scientist coming into school to run activities with the children, using various techniques in order to solve a mystery!
Well – what a June we are having! Rain, rain and more rain! Our annual Sports Day had to be cancelled this week due to the downpour but we are not going to let it move us off course. Showers come and go but we have two choices – we can wait for the showers to pass or we can learn to dance in the rain! This is very much my theme for this week’s blog.

As the countdown to our World of Work week continues, we are pleased to announce the next of our World of Work representatives who will be coming into school to work with the children.
Helen – Intensive Care Unit Nurse
These nurses work primarily in intensive care units, providing the extensive care required for patients in these units.
It will be fantastic for the children to learn about the skills required to do this job and the responsibilities it involves.
The KS2 children are starting to get really excited about their upcoming production of Annie Jr in July as they see various rehearsed elements starting to come together.
As we have seen over the last two years, performing in a musical production is an experience that our pupils will remember for the rest of their lives. There are so many benefits that the children gain from performing in a production like this, including:
Active Participation in the Arts: Participating in the arts provides young people with a chance to explore their creativity and imagination in a structured and safe environment. Musical theatre is specifically remarkable because it is the only art form that combines all areas of the fine arts: acting, singing, dancing, and visual arts.
Improving Literacy Skills: From reading scripts to memorising lines to learning to tell a story, young people continually improve their literacy skills while rehearsing and performing in a musical.
Becoming a Confident Public Speaker: It takes a lot of guts to stand up and sing or dance in front of your family, peers, and what may seem like the entire community. Experience with public speaking at a young age gives students confidence that will be important to them for the rest of their lives.
Gaining Critical Thinking & Problem Solving Skills: Putting on a musical is a group effort and every member of the team must work together to make it happen. Throughout the rehearsal process, the students will learn to solve challenges as they arise. Students will learn to trust and depend on themselves and their cast mates.
Your KS2 child should bring home a letter today detailing all the arrangements you need to know, together with a ticket order form.
Please complete and return your order form as soon as possible so we can allocate tickets. Once we have catered for our KS2 families, we will then open it up to the wider school community.
Having seen some of the rehearsals already, I know you are going to be blown away by the talents of all of our children – they are just amazing!
Something that is really popular in school with our children is the ‘special day’ gift shops. They get really excited and feel incredibly grown up to be able to spend their money independent of parents or guardians.
Earlier this year, we held the Mother’s Day Gift Shop but this Friday, it’s the children’s chance to buy a gift for Dad or someone else special in their lives. The gift shop is £2 per child.
We won’t spoilt the surprise in case any Dad’s are reading this post, only that you’re in for a delicious treat!
13 days to go and the countdown to our World of Work week is underway.
We have pleasure in announcing the first of our businesses coming into school to work with the children; Burton Albion Community Trust.
For any Brewers fans, I’m sure this will be a real treat!
Due to the incredibly wet weather this week and how wet the sports field is at present, we have take the decision now to postpone Sports Day.
The rescheduled date (as per the diary dates) is 27th June 2019 at 9.30am. Hopefully we will have a little more sunshine by then.
