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!

An enjoyable Easter experience

What a lovely morning for a walk! Team Endeavour were in good spirits this morning and made thoughtful and respectful contributions during our Easter activities at Horsley Church. Children listened well and were creative in sharing their hopes and dreams for the future. We were very lucky to meet some lovely people and enjoy refreshments too.

First Lego League Into Orbit Project

Many thanks to all the staff and volunteers at the University of Nottingham's Engineering and Science Learning Centre for hosting the First Lego League's 2018 competition. This is an international competition designed to promote STEM skills in children of all ages who design, build and program robots to perform missions and solve problems. Our pupils performed amazingly in all rounds of the competition coming SECOND overall, losing by only 2 points to a fabulous team from Selston High School. What an achievement! Well done, children, and many thanks to Mr Walters for devoting so much time to the project both in school and at home.
