World Book Day

Thursday 7th March 2019 

What a brilliant and busy day we have had, celebrating books and sharing stories on World Book Day!

From a relaxing moment with reading buddies, to the excitement of defeating ‘Lord No-words’ in the BBC live lesson, to the PTA’s second hand book sale, it’s been an such an enjoyable day. 

The school ethos group have been busy tidying the spiritual garden in time for spring.

SCONE visit London - 5th February 2019

What a fantastic day we had in London.  After an early start from Penrith station, we arrived in London on time.  We then successfully navigated the tube and walked towards the London Eye.  After lunch, we had an amazing time on the London Eye.  The views were fantastic - we saw Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and The Shard, to name a few!  Then onto the Houses of Parliament.  We had a tour and the opportunity to sit in the gallery of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords and then took part in a workshop.  A long journey back, but definitely a day to remember!

Wednesday 23rd May - Share a Pencil Day.

The school spent the afternoon having fun and working together for Share a Pencil Day. They explored the reasons why millions of children globally are missing out on an education, and why that matters. Some classes were given tasks and challenges to complete with limited resources, such as one pencil per group and fewer chairs in the classroom! Key Stage 1 loved working together to complete a global themed treasure hunt. At the end of the afternoon, children did a #pencil selfie to show what they appreciate about their own school. Find out more at https://www.hope.co.uk/share-a-pencil-day/

Science week: 6th - 10th November

Band-tastic!!

Science week has been brilliant with some fantastic wow moments to inspire the children. Throughout the week, they conducted investigations related to sound, light, electricity and materials. Then, using their newly found scientific knowledge, each class created something to enhance a rock band’s performance on Friday.

Year 4, ‘Sound’.

Still image for this video
The class witnessed a science wow moment this morning when discovering how sound works. Corn flour mixed with water creates a substance that behaves as both liquid and solid, so when we put it in a speaker and played a constant low frequency sound, the effect of the sound vibrations on the mixture was quite unusual!

Investigating volume and pitch

Friday afternoon:

the rock band’s performance and presentations to parents. 

Presenting our science work in the hall.

The band played some rocking tunes to round up and celebrate the end of science week.
