Christmas Cracked

On Wednesday 5th December 2018, Year 6 attended Christmas Cracked at Whaddon Way Church in Bletchley. The children had a really enjoyable morning learning about the ‘true meaning of Christmas‘ while they decorated festive cakes, completed  a quiz and  listened to a shepherd reciting his version of the Christmas story. A huge thank you to Bridgebuilder trust volunteers who made the whole experience possible.

Moon Buggies

You may be wondering how astronauts in 2018 explore the surface of the Moon.  On Monday 10th December, Puffin, Kingfisher and Penguin classes tried to answer that question.  Here are our results – I wonder which one NASA will choose?

WWII Experience Day

A huge thank you to all the families of the Waterbirds classes for providing such wonderful costumes and letters for our World War II Experience Day.  The children and staff had a tremendous day learning all about evacuation.  
After sheltering from the bombs (in a makeshift Morrison’s shelter), sampling vegetable soup and designing  propaganda posters, the children were joined by their families in the hall to sing rousing tunes like ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and ‘Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag.’   It was a truly wonderful experience.

Parent visitor to talk about World War 11

Penguin class were fortunate to have a visitor on Wednesday 30th January 2019.  Ms Pickerin came into school to tell the class all about her parents experience of Evacuation during World War II.  The class were fascinated to hear the two contrasting experiences of  her mother, who was evacuated to Wales, and father, who was evacuated to Devon and experienced life in a Grand House with servants.
This type of oral account is so valuable for the children to experience as it helps them appreciate how our understanding of the past is often formed from these primary sources.  We’d love to hear any more tales our school community has to offer.

Year 6 Stars!

We were extremely proud of all our children in Year 6 last week. They tackled their SATs tests with diligence and determination. It was lovely to see them enjoying breakfast together and supporting one another throughout the day.

A huge thank you to our local Morrison & Tesco stores for supporting the breakfast and a special mention for Tara Maher who was an amazing ‘Community Champion.’

Luckily the weather held out on Friday and we managed to spend some time outdoors.

Year 5 Lifepath Bunyan Day at Elstow – 21st May 2019

Year 5 took part in Lifepath Bunyan at Elstow, in association with the Bridgebuilders Trust and Scripture Union. They travelled to Elstow, where John Bunyan, a Christian preacher and author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, was born and lived. They learned about his life and work, and got involved in a few activities that might have been popular during Bunyan’s time – bell-ringing, calligraphy, weaving and even a visit to the market fair for games and maypole dancing!

To end the day, the children travelled along the straight and narrow path to the Celestial City, as Bunyan wrote about in The Pilgrim’s Progress, resisting temptation along the way. The children were excellently behaved and learned a lot throughout the day – well done Year 5!

Rev Paul Pavlou Visit – 23rd May 2019

As part of their RE learning this term, Year 5 and 6 have been thinking about Pentecost and what inspires Christians.  Rev. Paul Pavlou supported us greatly today with his visit. He shared with us his own personal reflections on what has inspired him to become a Christian and how the Holy Spirit guides him in his everyday life.  Emily and Lewis shared their beautiful accounts of the Passover – seen through the eyes of the disciples and children from Puffin class asked some profound questions. It was a truly memorable experience for all involved.

Year 5/6 Visit to Holdenby House – 1st October 2019

Year 5/6 experienced a day as Victorian servants at Holdenby House in Northamptonshire.  The children were given various roles ranging from a Tweeny to Stable boys and spent the day carrying out tasks appropriate for their position.  The team leading the day showed the children how hard it was for servants in this era and how strict the rules were.  The teachers also played their part in the day and everyone enjoyed the experience.
