LKS2 Stone Age Trip

KS2 Assembly about Rosa Parks

KS2 took part in an assembly about using their voice for good. We heard about Rosa Parks and how she used her voice to stand up for what she believed in. KS2 were so inspired and impressed by her bravery and determination, they gave a spontaneous round of applause!

UKS2 Evacuee Day

Upper KS2 were evacuated to the countryside in last week’s experience day for our WW2 topic. They were met in the village hall by the local billeting officer who sent them off to their new homes and schools.

In their new countryside school, our UKS2 evacuees learned how to stay safe in the event of an air raid and sang favourite songs from the early 1940s. We wrote our own verses from beneath the table after an unexpected air raid siren

During the war, it was important to know how to sew, so these evacuees have been practising their skills. Even clothing was rationed so people needed to ‘Make Do and Mend’ the holes in their socks and attach missing buttons.

These evacuees learned about ‘WW2 Rationing’ and how much food a family had each week. We thought about how we could make the food last and meals we could make, then we used the rations to make delicious rock cakes which we shared at home time.

During WW2, children spent a lot of time in the outdoors. Our evacuees got outside to identify plants, trees and birds. Then they collected conkers and attached them to string to play a few rounds. We had great fun and had a tournament at lunchtime!

UKS2 enjoyed a 1940s style packed lunch in the park. Our basic rations were wrapped in brown paper and string. Aditi helped to keep spirits high after our sad goodbyes by playing us some tunes on the piano!

Our brave evacuees wrote postcards to their families to let them know where they had been housed in the countryside and what their experience of their host family had been so far. Luckily, most had positive stories to share.

Year 6W arrived with their gas masks and suitcases today, ready to be evacuated to the countryside for the UKS2 WWII Experience Day. We attached our tags to our jackets, waved a final goodbye to our parents and made our way to the train.

Year 6 Dodgeball Festival

Year 6 Dodgeball Festival! Our children loved their first dodgeball festival of the year today and worked so hard. We won 4 and drew 2- a cracking result! Great to see plenty of smiles on faces.

Lower Key Stage 2 Palaeontologist Workshop

Lower Key Stage 2 had a fantastic workshop delivered by Mary Anning this afternoon. She told us all about her experiences as a palaeontologist. This helped us to learn much more about fossils as part of our science topic all about rocks.

Our roles and responsibilities board for 2022 has gone up and our Year 5 and 6 students are completing their application forms. Fingers crossed for everyone that their applications are successful and that they are called for an interview!
