World of Work Week – Year 4

Last week, Year 4 met a variety of visitors to help us gain a greater understanding of the world of work. We really enjoyed the week and on Friday took part in lots of different team building activities as we found out that this is important for many jobs in the working world. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our volunteers for taking the time to visit our school!

 

Children’s University

We are very proud of our 29 Year 5 and Year 6 graduates this year! They have worked hard to achieve their bronze, silver and gold awards.

In addition to having high quality education in school, children must also be involved in learning in its broadest sense, beyond the classroom and formal curriculum, if they are to achieve their potential and become lifelong learners. The Children’s University aims to help children develop their extra-curricular interests and abilities and have their participation and achievements recognised and celebrated, thereby increasing their motivation, confidence, self-esteem and aspirations to succeed.

The Children’s University is an International critically-acclaimed charity which encourages children aged 5 to 14 years to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills through participation in innovative and creative Learning Activities outside of the school day. Learning Activities are designed to:

•raise aspiration, self-esteem & confidence
