Following A Day With The Stars, we have put together a small collection of photos and clips from the event, which features children from all seven of our Embark Academy Schools.
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.
Wow! What a great day!
A group of students, who have previously shown a love for singing and performing in our school, joined sixty other children from our Embark Federation schools for an utterly brilliant day in Derby.
We were joined throughout the day, by two amazing stars - Victoria Farley and Sophie Isaacs - from the West End. We were also lucky enough to be accompanied by one of our wonderful trustees, Baby J, who recorded a song for Embark in the morning. After that, Sophie and Victoria taught the children the lyrics and choreography to One Short Day, from Wicked and Hard Knock, Life from Annie.
The children were great representatives of the school, showing enthusiasm throughout the day and making the most of the opportunity!
Thanks again to all those who supported the children throughout the day. I hope you had as much fun as I did! Miss Jennings
This afternoon, as part of the children's Into Orbit project, Equality used creativity, precision, collaboration and resilience to build their own launching devices using skills they have learned so far this term. All the children said they really enjoyed this challenge and using what they had previously learned to help them. Well done! EJ
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
This afternoon, Team Equality were exploring circuits and electricity in their Science work. The children worked collaboratively to create circuits to power bulbs, LEDs, motors and even managed to get a propellor to fly in to the air! They showed great self-control, responsibility and organisation throughout the afternoon. We had fun but we also learnt lots in the process of creating circuits.
