With Monday being Bank Holiday, it's been a short week this week, but plenty going on as usual!
Year Six and Year Two children have been very busy preparing for their SATs, which take place next week. We're pleased to report that the children are remaining positive, cheerful and confident as they approach these tests, and we are sure that they will do their very best and make us proud...
Good luck children - have a lovely relaxing weekend, but don't forget the importance of a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast every day next week to help your brain work well!
On Wednesday, Key Stage Two children were visited by a team from Google, who came in to deliver a fantastic "Be Internet Legends" assembly. The children were given lots of information about how to use the internet safely - to be an "Internaut" and not an "Internaughty" - and all took a pledge agreeing to spread the word about online safety using the online safety code:
- Think Before You Share
- Check It's For Real
- Protect Your Stuff
- Respect Each Other
- When In Doubt, Discuss
At the end of the assembly, the children were presented with a certificate proclaiming that they are all "Internet Legends".
Badgers Class had an interesting Science lesson this week. They were investigating tooth decay, by looking at the effect that different substances may have on the shell of an egg. Hard boiled eggs were placed into beakers containing water, cola, orange juice, apple juice and milk, and the children had to predict how they thought each liquid would react with the calcium of the eggshell. They will observe the eggs over the next week to see what happens - what a great eggsperiment!
The School Kitchen has produced a new menu for the summer term, with some new dishes and some old favourites. Everyone, including the very youngest children in Hamsters, enjoys a delicious Wednesday roast!
On Thursday it was Otters Class assembly which they shared with parents and the rest of the school. They spoke about the work that the have been doing this year, with photos and videos of their chick rearing, and of the class trip to Luton Town FC. The children also entertained with a catwalk fashion show, where they showed off their Easter bonnets. They then shared all that they had learnt about plants in their Garden Centre themed activity corner, and finished off with a lovely songs about chickens!
The activity corner has now been transformed into a wonderful Castle themed area for this term.
