Whole School Events Archive: 2017 - 2018
Royal International Air Tattoo We had a fantastic day at Fairford on Friday. We watched an amazing display by the Red Arrows and enjoyed exploring the planes on the ground. We practised our science skills in the Tech Zone and tried our hand at airfix models in the Activities Zone. The sun shone for most of the day but even a little bit of rain couldn’t dampen our excitement!
We were all in for a shock on Friday 16th March, when we all arrived at school to find that we were going to need to spend the day investigating a crime! We all turned ourselves into crime scene investigators for the day to solve the mystery of the missing crockery as an enrichment day to mark British Science week. We had a great time trying out lots of new scientific experiments and using different equipment to extract DNA, test blood and urine and take fingerprints.
Ten Ten Theatre Company Visit
We were very fortunate to have the Ten Ten Theatre Company in to visit. Ten Ten are a Catholic theatre company who travel round schools and colleges. KS2 children watched 'THE GIFT' which helps children to discover the beauty of self-giving and sacrifice. They were then encouraged to discuss their own experiences and feelings. The actors were very impressed with the children's responses! Reception and KS1 watched 'UP IN THE CLOUDS' which enables children to see that you can find happiness not only in doing what you want for yourself, you can also find happiness in doing things for others.
In the afternoon TenTen ran a parent workshop which gave details about the theatre company as well as the performances that the children watched. Thank you to all those parents who attended.
Following a very busy but thought provoking day TenTen theatre reported that they felt the children had behaved beautifully during the performances and that their responses and attitudes were 'exceptional!'
We had a fantastic couple of days painting crosses with No Added Sugar. The crosses are now displayed in both school halls.
The Artists No Added Sugar will be at the Upham Road site to lead a craft event on Thursday 13th October from 3pm to 5pm. All are welcome.
