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!

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
•encourage curiosity and a love of learning
•enhance motivation and build resilience
•introduce new life experience
•offer progression in learning and personal skills
Year 2 have had a great day on the beach in Llandudno.
Do you have beautifully cursive handwriting? Ask your teacher if you have met the Grosvenor Road Gold Standard – Remember: letter formation, height and every join must be accurate!
Over the last few weeks Nursery have had some very special visitors! We got a incubator with eggs! We discussed what would happen to the eggs and decided together that they would crack and something would come out.
Sure enough a few days later a crack did appear in one of the eggs. So, we watched and OUT POPPED a little chick. Then all the eggs hatched and we had 7 little chicks!
We’ve been keeping them safe, warm and well fed in their brooder box. We have been holding them lots in our carpet times – but always remember to wash our hands afterwards!
Nursery will miss the chicks when they go back to farm, but we WON’T miss the poo!
