Participating is easy! The school that sends in the most accepted waste between the 25th of March 2019 and the 5th of July 2019 will receive a recycled playground makeover worth £10,000, on top of points earned by the shipment weight.
The winning school will be able to choose from a selection of play equipment or gardening equipment made from recycled material worth £10,000. Depending on the prize selected, the overall area required to install the prize could be up to 25m x 3m.
There is a recycle bin allocated for these items at the front office in school. Please see the attached link below to see what is acceptable waste.
Let’s work together to look after our amazing planet.
Today, the children collected data based on Year 4’s favourite sports and recorded the results in a table which they later used to create a bar graph. The children were split into groups which focussed on particular areas of the bar graph that they created outside on the school playground using chalk and other resources. Some children focussed on the title of the graph whilst others focussed on the y axis, x axis, labels and scale. The children then represented the bars on the graph by standing behind their favourite sport. We then compared the popularity of sports which showed that football was the most popular and swimming, gymnastics and dancing were the least popular. The children had great fun doing this activity and it was great to see the children consolidate their learning on statistics.
The children had a great time in the Year 6 classroom on World Book Day. The Year 6 book was ‘Gangsta Granny’. This book has been adapted into a film so we began by watching a short clip of some acting. We used this as inspiration for our very own role-play. We warmed up first by acting out different ages – baby, toddler, teenager and old person. The children moved about in different ways in order to make it clear which age they were. Following this, the children were given an extract from the book: the moment that Ben discovers his Granny’s emeralds and jewels. The children used the extract and added some of their own dialogue and actions. The children then acted this out and showed it to the rest of the class at the end of the lesson. There were some fantastic performances. Well done!
A huge thank you to all families who were able to battle their way through the snow to watch Year 4’s Class Liturgy. The children did a fantastic job despite there being a few last minute changes. The Liturgy was a lovely time to reflect on the importance of Lent and to remember the sacrifices Jesus made and the sacrifices we are willing to make during this special time of year.
