Autumn has been the topic of the week in Enjoy! after school club, and they have used leaves to create pieces of art. They have made faces and people using leaves, colours, pom poms and more!
A huge congratulations to the Boys' Football Team who had their first match last night. We are delighted to announce that they won 15-1 against Moorlands School.
A fantastic team performance and spirit. The boys showed all of our school roots. We are excited to try and continue the winning start in our next match.
Kieran, our Man of the Match said "It was a great match, with almost everyone scoring. I can't wait for the next game."
Today Year 2 had a special visitor who brought history to life at our school. We were joined by Patrick from History Off The Page who helped us do lots of learning about The Great Fire of London. We started by becoming apprentices from London during 1666 and made lots of great objects and items including scent bags, candles and clay pots. We then were able to travel back in time and help pull down houses to prevent the fire from spreading. The children also had the opportunity to dig up some of the objects that would have been buried during the fire. Finally, we were able to watch Patrick mould liquid metal into buttons. Next week we will be continuing to learn about The Great Fire of London and use our objects we made to inspire our writing.
We are delighted to advise you that we have been awarded the Bronze School Games Mark for 2015/16. The Sainsbury School Games is a national initiative that has used competitive sport to increase participation numbers to foster a life-long engagement in balanced healthy and active living.
This half term Year 4 have been learning about Ancient Greek history. We have really enjoyed looking at the clay pottery that was created and is still in existence today, so Andy has agreed to come in and work with us so that we can create our own! This week, we shaped our clay pots and vases. In the coming weeks they will be fired in a kiln and painted.
We were very lucky to have some exciting visitors come into school and give us the opportunity to take part in wheelchair sports.
After learning about the different sports which have wheelchair alternatives, the children were given the chance to have a go in the wheelchairs and take part in some team slalom races.
This chart highlights the importance of children attending school regularly. The more school your child misses the harder they will find their learning.
A Government study, published by the DfE, found that of the pupils who miss 10%-20% of school, only 35% acheive A*-C at GCSE (including English and Maths).
We are pleased to announce we have a brand new website. We hope you'll agree it is a fresh design that will help you stay up to date with all the latest news and events here at Great Linford Primary.
