Today, some of our Year 5 & Year 6 children were presented with their Children’s University Awards in a graduation ceremony led by Enrich Education.
Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children – encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school.
Our children received bronze, silver and gold awards today, according to the number of hours of extra-curricular activities they have built up over the past year.
On Thursday, six Year 5 children visited the residents of Wentworth House Care Home to share their current topic work on World War II. They discussed their learning then asked residents about their own experiences and memories of the war.
Thank you once again to all at Wentworth House. This was a really rewarding and special learning experience for our children; they also made lots of notes to take back to their classes to really bring their topic to life!
On Tuesday, 22 children attended the Children’s University graduation at Salford University. Over the course of the year, each child who had taken part in a school extra-curricular activity gained credits to achieve Children’s University awards. This year, we had children who achieved bronze, silver and gold awards, which is amazing. The children and parents who attended the ceremony thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a credit to the school.
Remember, your credits from this year roll over to next year, so keep going to the extra-curricular activities to gain even more credits and achieve your next award!
Today, as part of our world of work week, UKS2 were visited by West End Schools who talked to them all about the theatre industry and also worked with them to produce a short musical version of The Lion King, which they performed to each other. They worked incredibly hard and threw themselves into it – as you can see from the photos below. Well done everyone who took part.
To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, our School Council held a sponsored pancake flip in school. All children in Reception to Year 6 took part to see how many (wooden) pancakes they could flip in two minutes. All our children tried really hard and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The record number of flips went to Ammar in Year 6 with 153!!
Thank you to all our families who have very kindly sponsored their children – please send monies in to school as soon as possible. Also, a huge thank you to the parents who came into school to help over the two days, enabling us to hold this event. Here are some of our pancake flippers in action!
