Thank you to all families and staff for supporting our annual House Charity Bake Sale. We managed to raise a wonderful £117.34 which we will share between our two charities: Willen Hospice and World Vision. Yellow House Captain, Gabby, was keen to share her thanks to all those who helped bake cakes and muck in to help boost our final total. "I just think it is so important to help those in need. Charity is really important at GLPS and I hope next year the new house captains can beet this years total."
We wish you all a 'cracking' Easter.
The Great Linford Team
Students in Year 6 visited St Andrew's Church to take part in the annual Easter Cracked event. The students learnt about the Christian festival of Easter and asked some well thought questions. All students and staff are very grateful to all the volunteers at St Andrew's for a successful event.
Happy Easter from the Year 6 team.
Today the Owls and Hedgehogs turned into their alter egos and became superheros for the afternoon. The children put on a fantastic fashion show for the families and show cased their masks and capes that they had designed and made. The children all got on stage and showed their best superhero pose! After the show we then had an Easter egg hunt in our garden and the children were allowed to each have a chocolate egg. We had a fantastic afternoon and everybody went home with a huge smile on their face. Well done Foundation!
The Owls and Hedgehogs were very lucky yesterday as we had a lovely lady called Chenda come in and tell us the Easter story. She used playmobil to help retell the story from Palm Sunday until Easter Sunday. We broke bread together and reinacted the last supper. We also made little story books about Easter and played Easter bingo. We had a lovely morning and want to say a huge thank you to Chenda!
Check out our latest edition of Great Linford Roving Reporters news! The children have worked hard to investigate our successful book week, each choosing a different activity to report on. They have also spent a long time designing their latest edition to look creative but professional. Enjoy reading!
Year 3 have been working exceptionally hard to produce their year group performance over the last half term. Each day we have been practising our songs and dance moves. The children have had the opportunity to learn lots of different songs and dances as well as practise their confident voice skills. As a school we are currently trying to raise money towards purchasing some new equipment to become a theatre school and we managed to raise a fantastic amount thanks to all of the donations. We would just like to say Thank You to all of the parents for bringing in the most fantastic costumes for the performance as well. It was a brilliant experience for all of the children and we look forward to the next show in Year 4!
A big Well done to Emily in Year 5 who has achieved a red belt in Shotokan Karate. Emily was awarded her certificate on the 17th of March and very proudly let us photograph her in her Karate kit holding her certificate.
This is a super achievement and we wish Emily all the success as she continues to progress in her chosen sport.
On Thursday 15th March, some Year 2 and Year 3 children were lucky enough to have the chance to visit Stantonbury Theatre to watch a special performance. We left just after our lunch and walked across to the theatre, once we arrived we took our seats and had a fantastic view! The whole show was performed by just one lady, Danyah Miller, who had the audience captivated. We listened to several stories all from the perspective of a small boy called Thomas, who certainly had a few adventures during his life. We left to return just before the end of the day and as the time ticked on we had some very tired legs and some competitive walking from Miss Lovelock and Mrs Regan. All in all the children and adults had a brilliant time and definitely came away believing that unicorns exist!
On Wednesday 14th March the Great Linford Primary School Choir travelled to Wembley Arena for their biggest performance of the year! They have been practicing since September for this performance as a part of one of the Worlds Largest Choirs, joining up with schools from all over the country to perform. The children did exceptionally well and a fantastic time was had by all! We even got to meet at greet with some of the more famous acts HRVY and Roadtrip that performed on stage! The children were very tired after their travels.
