Singing in the Rain!

Another memorable ‘Sausage and Song’ on Friday for many reasons – great acting, great singing, brilliant scenery and props…and rain!

It didn’t dampen our spirits though and after an impromptu interval when we ran for cover and drew the raffle, we were treated to a beautiful rendition of ‘The time I spent with you’.

We’re so proud of our pupils. They reharsed, sang, performed, made scenery and props and gave everyone a night to remember with ‘A Blast from the Past’!

Continents

Our infants have been learning about the continents and the differences between them. They have looked at landscapes, animals and cultures. Recently they have made dioramas based on their research and will be writing stories to go with them.

Dragons Den

Groups of Year 6 pupils pitched their business ideas to a panel of Dragons today to get investment for stalls they will be running next Wednesday to raise money for their leavers event.

Heated negotiations with some tough questions ended with the investments they were seeking. Please come and join us for their sale next Wednesday after school.

Ready and raring to go!

After months of planning, planting, pricking out, potting on and nurturing, our Lincolnshire Show Celebration Garden entry is complete. From growing our seedlings under artificial lights early on this year and learning about the 150 yearhistory of the Lincolnshire Show, today our Year 6 pupils went to the showground to plant a celebration garden and display all they have found out about pollination, fertilisation, soil types and more. Tomorrow they will present to a panel of judges in the hope of some success in the School Challenge.

If you are at the show – have a look both in the Horticultural Area and the Exhibition Hall.

Trains of the future

It has rivaled HS2 in the time it has taken to get our trains built and running but we’re nearly there! Lots of skills and knowledge involved here from nets to circuits to gearing and friction.

Class Asia Blow their top!

Over the last few weeks, Class Asia have been making ‘cinder cone’ type volcanoes out of a plastic bottle, thick card, papier-mâché and paint. They all concentrated and worked really hard to replicate the real thing.

Today was the day the children were most excited about as the models were ready to ‘erupt’. Everyone took it in turns to pour the vinegar and red food colouring into thier volcano, then they carefully  put a couple of teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda into the liquid and waited patiently for a few moment before it burst with a bubbling red’lava’ pouring all over the cone and rocks. They looked brilliant.

The infants were really interested in what we were doing, so they came out and sat down to watch some volcanoes erupt all over again, with a running commentary from some children from Class Asia.

Bird Watch

This week, junior children are taking part in the RSPB birdwatch. A good chance for children who went to RSPB Bempton Cliffs in September to put knowledge and skills into use.

We’ve been making bird feed and logging the birds we see from our bird hide. We’ve also set up a webcam at our feeders so we can watch from home or our classrooms.
