Sainsbury's Active Kids Picture Activity - 25th April 2016
On Monday, selected pupils from years 3 to 6 were chosen to represent the school at a special photoshoot with two sporting athletes; Lucy Bronze (Manchester City footballer) and Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool player)!
The children had lots of fun meeting sporting heroes and having their photos taken (like celebrities). However, their favourite part was challenging each other in a wind dome area. Everyone had to collect as many Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers as possible. It wasn't easy, jumping through the air to reach the flying vouchers.
Take a look at the photos below:
A group of students from years 4 & 5 have been taking part in a special reading programme that is supported by the Premier League. Each week, the Premier League Readers meet to share their reading interests and habits. They learn new skills and develop the confidence to become a regular reader, who reads for pleasure!
As a reward for their hard work, our school was chosen to visit two start authors; Tom Palmer and Jon Mayhew at both our local football stadiums. Everyone enjoyed finding out the books the authors had written. We enjoyed taking part in a reading quiz and creating our own 'silly story' ideas.
We hope everyone enjoyed the visit and came away with a bigger interest in reading regularly and some good ideas for titles of books they would like to read.
A huge congratulations goes to all our Year 6 entries to the Dot Art Schools competition 2016. Their artwork, inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, has now been published on the Dot Art Schools website for international exhibition!
Why not pop along to the website to have a look?
Year 6 enjoyed many activities with Mrs Haslehurst, Miss Sheridan, Mr Rigby, Miss Townley and Mrs Berry. They ranged from GPS, calculations and reading comprehension. Mrs Berry used the school's new resource Maths a Day which promoted physical activity whilst doing maths - see some photos below. Well done to all the children who attended.
