Today some of the children from Foundation went to visit the residents at Fulwell Court in Great Linford as part of our intergenerational project. The children retold the stories The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Little Red Hen to the residents. They then spent time chatting and getting to know each other. The children even taught some of the ladies to floss! We all had a lovely time learning about each others lives. Everybody had a fabulous time and had big smiles on their faces. We are very excited to be visiting every week after half term and learning new things about each other.
Yesterday (21st of May) our KS2 children were treated to a demonstration from the Romeo Dance Academy who have recently opened up a brand new Ballroom Studio at the Old Bus Station in Central Milton Keynes.
The dance academy offers training in a variety of styles including Hip Hop, Ballet, Cheerleading, Ballroom & Latin and Wheelchair dancing and many more. The academy has been designed to cater for all ages, abilities and levels of experience, making it a great option for beginners as well as those with previous training.
The children were able to participate in the demonstration learning new skills and showing off some moves they already have!

All of the children did a fantastic job on Tuesday showcasing their 'Splash' musical production to their parents. Their hard work and dedication to rehearsals made the play wonderful to watch and all parents/carers proud. The children were actors, props/scenery makers as well as sound directors within the show which made it even more special. Have a look at some of our photos. If you have any photos of the performances taken yourself, please email them to the school office so that we can add these to our year group Splash scrapbook and display which we are putting together.
To celebrate the end of SATs, the Year 6 children made bunting and scones so that we could hold a quintessentially British tea party. The children had lemonade and cucumber sandwiches as they tucked in to their baked goodies.
Until the end of June you can use the Great British Bee Count smartphone app to identify and record our precious pollinators wherever you are. Their app has everything you need to get started – including a bee identification guide and survey, a guide to bee-friendly plants and tips for creating habitats for pollinators.
You can record bees whenever and wherever you want. Why not keep a look out for them on your way to the shops, work or school? Or search in your garden or local park at the weekend? The Great British Bee Count is a fun and easy way to discover the wonderful world of bees in our gardens, streets and green spaces.
As part of a heritage craft project at the Arts Centre in Great Linford, 8 of our Year 5 students have been lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to take part in a 5 week weaving workshop.
As well as gaining a new skill the children will learn and explore where the weaving style originates from
Year one have been exploring the different aspects of the Hindu faith. We have looked at all of the different gods that are worshipped and investigated the rituals a child goes through when they are born. We also found out all about Diwali and made our own diva lamps! Aren't they colourful!
The Girls football team finished their final matches at the Bushfield tournament with games against Two Mile Ash and Oxley Park. The girls played fantastically well. Due to a few missing team members, we borrowed some players from another team and the girls did well to work with their new team mates. Unfortunately the results did not go in our favour, with a loss against TMA and a draw against Oxley.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in the tournament. I hope you have had as much fun as I have.
