British Science Week kicked off in school today with an assembly with The Stem Workshop, led by their managing director Leanne Mee. During the assembly all of our pupils were challenged to become scientists, engineers, mathematicians and designers. Throughout the day each year group have spent time looking at individual challenges and issues relating to journeys and being 'on the move'. Next week everyone will be engaged in tweaking their designs, making them, coming up with their own hypotheses and testing scientifically. They will then draw their own conclusions from the results gathered and share these with their peers.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the Parent view survey as part of our Ofsted inspection this week. We were visited on Tuesday by HMI Bianka Zemke, who undertook a thorough and rigorous inspection of our school. We look forward to sharing the outcome of this inspection in due course.
World Book Day was celebrated on Thursday with storytelling across the school as teachers shared favourite books in different classes. All pupils have had a book token which can be exchanged at book stores for a book specially produced for World Book Day.
We have sold out of red noses this week ahead of Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March. We will be inviting children to wear red on that day for a donation of £1, there will also be a cake sale, all money raised will be sent to Comic Relief. We are hoping to get more noses for next week.
