On Thursday morning we were pleased to welcome to the school Kashif Ahmad from the Braintree Islamic community. Mr Ahmad presented a, very informative, introduction to the Muslim faith to the whole school during assembly. He then spent time in Year 3 consolidating the work on Islam that the children have been learning about this term. The children enjoyed the visit and listened very enthusiastically to all that he had to say.

He was impressed with the behaviour of the children and the range of different questions which he got asked.

We hope to welcome Mr Ahmad back to the school for a follow up visit in the near future.

This week, three representatives from our Year 6, took part in the Helen Romanes public speaking competition.  Henry, Fergal and Samuel did fantastically well speaking about “Consumerism”.  Unfortunately they didn’t win but presented their thoughts and opinions very well. 

As part of our Creative Arts week we were visited by Multistory Theatre Company as part of our which the children seemed to enjoy.   It is great to have some live theatre in school to show to pupils how stories can come alive.  We also held an Arts Showcase on Thursday evening which involved our drama group, our choir and our many talented musicians.

 The children and teachers were treated to an assembly on Judaism, just before the half term holiday. Our visitor, then spent some time in year 2, extending the children's knowledge of the Jewish religion by telling them a story, showing some Jewish artefacts and answering the children's questions.  Mr Klein spoke very highly of the school and the warm welcome that he had received. He also commented on the thoughtful and interesting questions that he was asked when working with the year 2 children.

Apple Tree Class is growing seeds from space!

 The children are preparing to become space biologists and embark on a voyage of discovery by growing seeds that have been into space.

 In September, 2kg of rocket seeds were flown to the International Space Station (ISS).They returned to Earth in March 2016. The seeds have been sent as part of Rocket Science, an educational project launched by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency.

 We received a packet of 100 seeds from space, which we will grow alongside seeds that haven’t been to space and measure the differences over seven weeks. We won’t know which seed packet contains which seeds until all results have been collected by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and analysed by professional biostatisticians.

The out-of-this-world, nationwide science experiment will enable the children to think more about how we could preserve human life on another planet in the future, what astronauts need to survive long-term missions in space and the difficulties surrounding growing fresh

On Saturday 7th November a willing group of parents, children and staff braved the bad weather to attend our annual Get Your Grown Ups Growing gardening event. Everyone worked really hard planting new tubs with bulbs and flowers. The vegetable garden was weeded and prepared for the winter. Sensory and wildlife friendly plants were planted in the Supergrounds, which we hope will encourage even more wildlife to visit us. An art activity was provided for the children. They made bug tree decorations in the shape of ladybirds. Doughnuts and tea were provided to sustain the workers.

 

Mrs Jolliffe would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to improve the children’s’ learning environment. You did an amazing job!

 

Here are some photos from Friday's assembly of children with their various awards.

This week our Year 5 children and their parents took part in a star gazing event after school.  They learnt all about the Solar system, watched some impressive video clips and had the chance to use telescopes.  It was a cloudy evening but they did manage to eventually catch a close up look at the moon!  

Apple Tree class are looking after the vegetable garden this year. They have been busy harvesting the last crops for this year and preparing the ground for next year.

Year 3 spent an exciting day learning about evolution. The children found out how  Earth was formed. This led into exploring rocks, minerals and fossils; looking at patterns, texture and structure. They also met some rather scary dinosaurs! The children were able to touch the models and learn some amazing facts about prehistoric creatures. Finally, they all held a real fossilised dinosaur egg.
