Owls and Squirrels have thoroughly enjoyed our superhero topic. To celebrate the end of our topic, we made our very own superhero costumes and held a fashion show! The children worked very hard to first create their design and then make their outfits. At yesterdays 'Stay and Play', we held a fashion show where all the children showed off their amazing costumes. We even got our Owl and Squirrel parents up to model down our catwalk! All the children had a fantastic afternoon and made brilliant superheroes. So Great Linford Primary watch out for the foundation superheroes!
Each week class teachers award the Aspire trophy out to a student who has gone the extra mile with their learning and behaviour. They will be invited to celebrate this achievement with Miss Lovelock at an afternoon tea. Our Aspire winners for this week are pictured below. Well done to you all!

Last Friday, Owls and Squirrels had a fantastic time learning all about the Easter story from Chenda. We split into our classes and had a chance to listen to the story and take part. All the Owls and Squirrels listened brilliantly and showed great respect to our visitor. After listening to the story, we were invited to go on an egg hunt in our outside area. Some of the eggs were very tricky to find!
Owls and Squirrels then had a chance to choose from lots of different activities. These included: acting out the Easter story, retelling the story through pictures and making an Easter story card. Owls and Squirrels had a fantastic time and want to say a big thank you to Chenda for coming in and helping us.
We have had a great time writing this term in Year 5! In English we have been reading 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. Using drama as a way to get into character, it has help us understand what it must have felt like to become homeless. Using rich language and varied sentences, we created captions to encapsulate our feelings in our freeze frames.
We are Computing Angels! We are a group of children who test out new software, help with safer internet day and help other children who are still learning new skills in computing, especially when using the chrome books- our source of research. Our leader, Miss Flynn, is taking us on an exciting journey this year and as we reach the summer term, we hope to continue this journey even further. We are looking forward to supporting younger children in their computing lessons. It is an amazing opportunity to be given this role and we really enjoy computing angels because Miss Flynn always makes it enjoyable.
If you have any questions about Computing, we are the children to ask!
This week Year 2 have been writing their own version of the story ‘The Selfish Giant’. We have been acting out our stories in groups and using our text maps to make some innovative changes. Year 2 have also been applying their knowledge of inverted commas and are beginning to use speech in their own stories. We worked with puppets so that the children could understand when a character is speaking in a story. The stories the children have produced are very exciting and they all have made lots original changes.
As Mother's Day is fast approaching Enjoy club created flowers to show appreciation for their mums. In the centre of the flower the children glued a photo of themselves, and on the leaf they wrote the phrase "If mothers were flowers, I'd pick you".
Year 6 had a cracking time at Easter Cracked on Tuesday. The Easter Egg-head hosted an Easter quiz about the meaning and story behind Easter celebrations. Have an egg-cellent Easter everyone!
What an amazing day! On Tuesday, Year Three had an Egyptian Day and welcomed their families to an Egyptian Museum. The children were proud of their Egyptian learning over the spring term and boy did they show it! The children took ownership of a part of the Museum and told their family members all about their learning. What super stars! Miss Flynn and Miss Dean are very proud of what they have achieved and for the confidence that they displayed in the museum. Thank you to the Year Three adults, at home and at school, for your continued support with school events... and for the fabulous outfits!
Miss Flynn and Miss Dean.
