Last Friday, two teams from Y5 and Y6 participated in a rounders tournament at Langdale Primary School. There they had the opportunity to compete against other local schools and apply the knowledge and skills that they had learnt in their club when competing.

Outer Space Visit!

Last week, Mr Taylor came in to visit Class 1 and taught us all about the planets in the solar system. Mr Taylor has a very exciting job. He goes all over the world observing the sky at night to look for new planets. He showed us photographs of his travels and the giant telescopes that he has used to look through. He answered lots of difficult questions too. Thank you Mr Taylor.

Stay and Play and Teddy Bears' Picnic

Monday was our first Stay and Play session to welcome our new children who will be starting at The Meadows in September. They all seemed very happy to come and meet their new classmates and explore their new learning environment. It made Mrs Fowler and myself realise just how big our current reception children have got and how much they have grown and blossomed. We will be having another Teddy Bears' Picnic this year. It will be at Talk Talk Park on Friday 13th July at . 2 o'clock. Can all of the children bring a favourite teddy please. All snacks and drinks will be provided.

Carnival of the Animals

As part of our transition activities in Class 1 and 2, we had a lovely musical afternoon. We played some warm up games to warm our muscles and voices ready for an afternoon of singing. We played a body percussion game in which we had to sing about bananas. Then we introduced and changed the pitch. After that we exercised our vocal skills with a silly tongue twister! We then represented animal sounds and movements using pitch, tempo and volume.

Peak Mining Museum Trip - CL3

Last week, the children in Class 3 went on their trip to the Peak Mining Museum in Matlock. This was to consolidate their learning on rocks, fossils and our local mining study. We had glorious weather and all of the children were able to enjoy this as they were appropriately prepared (thank you for your support in this matter). As ever, their behaviour was exemplary and they were thoroughly engaged in the activities presented to them.

The Shaw Education Trust - Pupil Voice

On Thursday the 28th June, we (the school Ambassadors) were invited to participate in a special day for all the schools in our Academy group. We  visited Walton Hall Academy, which is a special school in Eccleshall Staffordshire.  The purpose of the day was to collaborate with pupils from all across the different schools and to discover more about the Shaw Education charity. 

Class 2 Transition Morning

Yesterday in Class 2 we had our Transition Morning when we moved into our new classes for September so they knew what their new class would be like. We began the morning with discussing what the children thought it would be like in the next year group, anything they were looking forward to or any worries they had. They all had opportunity to ask questions of which there were many!
