Today as a whole school we celebrated the upcoming Coronation of King Charles III.

We dressed up in red, white and blue, made crowns, sang songs, coloured in pictures, played games and had a wonderful lunch fit for Royalty out on the school playground. 

Author visit - Martin Brown 

On Monday the 24th April, we had a very exciting visit to St Michaels Academy to see the author and illustrator Martin Brown. He told us all about the new books he had written called Nell and the Cave Bear.

Martin told us that we could all draw and he showed us some little tricks he uses when he is drawing  

Martin Brown also read us some extracts from the books he has written and left us wanting to know what was going to happen next.

Rich Parker - Olympic Athlete 

On Monday 24th April, a GB inline skater called Rich Parker visited the school.

In owl class, we were very lucky because Mrs Warnes brought in her collection of Olympic Memorabilia and we were able to see gold medals and felt how heavy they are.

When we arrived in the hall Rich Parker gave us four exercises to do for a minute,

we were all exhausted at the end of four minutes but we also had a lot of fun.

Carymoor visit  

Last week we had a fantastic visit from Gary and Sophie from Carymoor Environmental Trust. They taught us all about the 3 R’s: recycle, reuse and reduce.  

We enjoyed learning the Bananas song in assembly and were amazed to discover that rubbish can be used to create electricity. 

In our workshop we became Eco pirates, we played recycling games and learnt how materials can be reused,

we liked the pencil case made from reused car tyres!!

 What a wonderful Inspire session we had!!

The children were inspired by the story of ‘Duffy’s Great Escape’ and reused ‘rubbish’ to create some amazing sea creatures.
