The whole school celebrated the Platinum Jubilee in style with a special picnic on the playground.
The children and staff were welcomed on to the playground by Mr Richardson who is a Welsh Guard Fusillier playing his snare drum.
The children also created a whole school pebble art work.I Every child in school had painted a single stone. Individually each stone did not create anything in particular but together all the stones made a fabulous piece of art work, demonstrating that together we can, 'Make a Difference.'
During the celebration, the children performed songs and year 6 read aloud a letter of thanks they had written to Queen Elizabeth.
Finally, the School Councillors planted a special Jubilee Tree, donated to school by Ebony Errington-Beech, a former pupil.

Year 2 visited Staircase House to consolidate their work on The Great Fire of London.
In the morning, they dressed up and re-enacted the Great Fire of London as Samuel Pepys household. They created their own biscuits to bake in the bakery on Pudding Lane, where the fire started. After the fire started, they formed bucket chains to try to put out the fire.
In the afternoon they had a workshop on The Plague and found out all about 'The Plague Doctor' and what actually went into the 'Pocket Full of Posies' from the nursey rhyme ' Ring o, Ring o, Roses'
Finally, they finished the day by creating their own wattle and daub walls, just as the buildings in 1666 would have been created.
Phew, a very busy but brilliant day!

Guilty or Not Guilty?, by Mrs Walsh
Date: 9th Mar 2022 @ 8:23am
Year 6 had the opportunity to participate in two ‘Street Law’ on-line workshops. The sessions were led by teams of lawyers who worked with the children so they could experience the world of law and order.
The first session was called ‘Goldilocks on Trial’ where we rejigged the layout of the classroom to reflect a criminal courtroom. The children then played the part of Defence Counsel, Prosecution Counsel, Goldilocks (the Defendant), Mummy bear (a witness), PC Plod (a witness), Judge, Usher and Jury. The trial outcome was a ‘hung’ jury which means there has to be a re-trial.
The second workshop, entitled “Social Media and Your Dream Job” , encouraged the children to think carefully about what they post online if/when they start to use social media apps, in case it affects their chance of keeping their ‘dream’ job in the future (and is based on some general principles from employment and criminal law). Lots of fascinating ‘real life’ lessons learnt and it definitely reinforced our esafety messages.
Year 6 Talk Online Safety with PSCO, by Mrs Walsh
Date: 8th Mar 2022 @ 5:08pm
Police Community Support Officer, Kerry Hancock and her colleague, paid a visit to Year 6 to discuss internet safety.
The children were shocked to hear that from the age of 10 Years old a child is responsible for their behaviour, on-line and 10-year-old children have found themselves in youth court for committing offences on the internet. (A youth court is a special type of magistrates’ court for people aged between 10 and 17 )
There were many questions, from the children, about age restrictions for different apps, fortunately Kerry was able to clear up any misconceptions!
