Well done to the Kangaroo Group (ably supported by Mrs Tracey and Miss Burrows) who have won an award for the film which they created as part of this project. This is very well deserved and we are very proud of all the hard work they put in! You can see the full length film above.
The children in the Kangaroos group have been taking part in a special project with other schools in the area (sponsored by Jigsaw24). It has been very exciting and they have worked with Mrs Tracey and Miss Burrows to produce a film which will be shown as part of the ‘Lights, Camera, App-tion!!’ Film Festival at the New Art Exchange on Gregory Boulevard. Showings will take place during w/c 20th June with the children involved visiting on Monday afternoon. They have learned all about making films using an app on the Ipads and you can watch their trailer to get a flavour of what they have been doing. If you wish to get tickets to the official showing on 20th June, please contact the New Art Exchange to book. All tickets are free but you must have a ticket to see the show. The finished film will be available to view on this website the following week. Enjoy!
We had a fantastic day celebrating Chinese New Year. Our governor, Councillor Alan Clark came to visit and join in the fun. We practised Chinese dragon dancing, tasted Chinese food and had a go at using chopsticks, learned about different Chinese customs and handled different Chinese things such as special decorations. We all had a wonderful time!
Today we welcomed the firefighters to school. They brought their fire engine with them and showed us all their fire fighting equipment. The children were able to climb up inside the cab and listen to the sirens. Afterwards, the fire fighters came into class and showed us their special clothes that protect them in a fire. We learned such a lot and had a great time.
We loved it when Police Officer Tom came to visit today as part of our theme about people who help us. Tom talked to all of the children about being a police officer. All of the children had chance to go outside and try on some real police uniform including the helmets (they were very heavy!) We had to cover our ears when Tom turned on the sirens – they were sooo loud! Most of all we loved sitting in the police care and beeping the horn. What a lot of fun!
We had a super time in school today celebrating Scandinavia Day and we were very pleased to welcome our governor Mrs Kaur who joined us for part of the day. Mrs Tracey dressed up in traditional Finnish costume and we enjoyed finding out all about traditional Scandinavian life; looking at different photographs and artefacts. The children danced together and enjoyed some tasty Scandinavian snacks including ‘Tiger cakes’ and ‘Gingerbread Men’. Our cook, Anita, also prepared a lovely Finnish lunch – cheese and spinach parcels with new potatoes and grated carrot salad.
