Autism Awareness Week

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent Autism Awareness Week. Children shared experiences and made thoughtful contributions during activities designed to raise awareness of autism; in order for us all to develop our understanding and learn to support each other in school, at home and in the community.

Children created their own 'jigsaw piece' and proudly held it aloft to  celebrate difference  and recognise the diversity of the people and families living with autism, before coming together to produce our own interpretation of the Autism Awareness Ribbon.

Easter Artwork

The children of Team Endurance have been working very hard today to create a piece of art inspired by a trip of ours to a local church. Whilst at St Clement's in Horsley, the children learned about the significance of Easter. I challenged them to get creative and to design and make a piece of art that represented the Easter story. As you can see, they really have excelled! Well done, Endurance!

Even more fantastic gymnastics

Congratulations to the y5 and y6 gymnasts who came 3rd overall on Thursday out of 16 schools at their gymnastics competition with a huge score of 89.5 out of 90. The girls proved that putting in time and effort really can make a difference so thanks for having a positive attitude on the night but also during practice sessions. Thanks also go to the gymnasts' parents for their time and support on Thursday too! EJ

Team Endurance Lego 'Into Orbit' Project

We love it when people bring us exciting ideas and Mr Walters has brought us a real cracker! The Lego 'Into Orbit' project is an exciting and stimulating multi-national competition in which children compete to build and program robots to solve real-world scientific and engineering problems. There is also a project that runs alongside this to research and find solutions to these problems using the children's own creativity and problem solving skills. The core skills that this project aims to promote within the children are team work, communication, problem solving, design, engineering and computational thinking / computer programming. If that wasn't awesome enough, the project utilises Lego products (such as Lego 'Mindstorms')  to develop these essential skills!

A huge thank you to Mr Walters for bringing this idea to us, his enthusiasm and for generously devoting his Tuesday afternoons to running the project with us in school.
