Our French Pen Pals

In 2016 Y5D have set up a link with their very own pen pals with children who attend Ècole d’aguillon in Toulon. They have sent us their class photo and a game of guess who which we really enjoyed. They also sent us post cards showing us Toulon and the surrounding areas. We sent them back postcards which we created ourselves. We really enjoy exchanging messages with our pen pals. We like seeing how their life is different and also similar to ours. We couldn’t believe they don’t have to wear a school uniform.

How our pupils make a difference

School Council

The children are encouraged to take an active role in the day-to-day routines of school life. The school council provides a forum for all children to give their views via their class representative. Elections are held annually and children from year 2 upwards take part in the democratic process.
The council meets to discuss issues of importance to the children, both in school and in the community.  They are especially keen to develop playground facilities and improve the outdoor environment.

STEM Ambassadors

Our STEM Ambassdaors are a small group of children – one from each KS2 class – who have a keen interest in one or more of the STEM subjects.  We meet once a month to discuss ways in which we can further raise children’s experiences of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in our school.  One of the first tasks the children have been given is to nominate a Star Scientist of the Lesson each week, who is presented with a special certificate in celebration assembly.  We will keep you posted about our exciting plans on this website so keep checking back!

Welcome to our first STEM Ambassadors’ Blog. We hope you enjoy reading it!

We have been super busy in Year 3 this half term, learning about what happens to our teeth if we drink the wrong drinks. We put an egg into different liquids and left them for a few days. We found out that fresh orange peeled the egg skin off and the fizzy pop turned the inside of the egg a black colour. The best drink for our teeth was water.

We used eggs because they are the same strength as the enamel of our teeth. It was good fun because we got to see what happened to the egg. My predictions of what I thought would happen were correct. Some of us were shocked to see what happened to some of the eggs!

Working Scientifically skills we have been developing are: observing something over time; making predictions and drawing diagrams to record our results.

I drink lots of water and only drink fizzy pop as a treat. I am going to be very careful what I drink in the future.

School Worship Team

Alongside the school council we have a school worship team with representatives from Y1-Y6. This team helps us select the hymns we learn and help with the delivery of worship by performing short sketches and writing and reading prayers. They also come up with suggestions about visitors they would like to invite to our assemblies.

Maths Ambassadors

Eco Council

The school has a very active team of ‘eco-warriors’ who help maintain the school grounds and regularly look for ways of improving the school’s recycling systems.
