Whole School Learning Day- Pioneering Women (October 2018)

We looked at Pioneering Women and how they have influenced us.

 

Mr Creagh-Barry looked at Ada Lovelace, she was the first computer programmer, the Foundation stage children sequenced their morning routine and in Year 1 and 2 the children wrote algorithms for drawing aliens.

 

Miss Peckett focussed on Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, she was the first female who qualified as a doctor in the United Kingdom.  We explored basic first aid and had a great time with bandages!

 

Miss Young looked at Jennerfer Ellis the athlete and the children followed an obstacle course in the hall.

 

Miss Scarlett focussed on Amy Johnson, she was  the first female to fly from the United Kingdom to Australia by herself.  The children made paper aeroplanes and flew them.

 

Miss McOmish looked at Helen Sharman, she was the first British female astronaut and the children became engineers by making rockets from construction materials.

 

Please see the photographs below of the event.

Miss Archer focused on Josephine Reynolds who was the first UK female firefighter. She joined the firefighting force in 1982 and the children learned about her amazing work. The children then went on to learn about the safety of matches and began to consider good and bad fires.

Merv Rees- Pupil recognition award

We would like to thank Merv Rees a Consultant Surgeon who made a personal donation to our Foundation Stage outdoor environment.  This was greatly received and provided us with funds to improve the outdoor environment after it was vandalised by local teenagers.

 

We invited him into school to present a star trophy for the child who has made the most significant effort.  Congratulations Logan in Butterfly Class!

Miss Archer- Peace

Bumblebee, Firefly, Dragonfly and Ladybird Class got the opportunity to visit Miss Archer during the day. They began looking at the word 'peace' and reflecting on ways they feel peaceful. The children then listened to various sound effects such as rainfall, trains and baby lullabies. After that the children listened to a spiritual story called 'Saturn the Spiritual Deer' before finally decorating a 'peace' sign.

Miss Peckett - Spirituality tree

 

Caterpillar, Butterfly, Bumblebee and Dragonfly Class got the opportunity to visit Miss Peckett during the day. They began by watching the story 'The Three Trees', the trees shared their dreams and beliefs and we learnt how these can come true.  We then talked about our own dreams and the journey we would need to go on. What skills would we need to learn?  Who would help us?  How many targets might it take to achieve our dreams?  The children then drew a picture of their dream and wrote this onto a coloured leaf.  We then attached the leaves onto our dreams and belief tree.
