    Thank you to all the children and parents in Magpie class. Some of which have been on a three year journey with me! We have got to know each other very well and I thought a  friendship bracelet expressed how I felt about them all. Click here to see photos.

  • Our RNLI visitor - Mr Readhead

    Published 23/05/19, by Sara Lindley

    Our visitor from the RNLI came in today and what a lovely afternoon we had learning even more about Grace Horsely Darling!

    We looked at some of the modern day equipment that we use now and compared it to the equipment Grace had to use when she did her daring rescue with her father.

    There is even a lifeboat named after our very own river Trent.

    The most expensive lifeboat to purchase is the 'Shannon' which costs £2.2 million and then you need a special trailer to get it into the water - another £1.3 million.

    We found out that 95% of the RNLI staff have a normal day job and have a special pager that tells them when they are needed for an emergency. They do not get paid for saving peoples lives! They are  volunteers.

    The children realised how important it is for people to raise funds for this charity as a way of saying thank you to all of the RNLI who help to keep us safe at the seaside and on our rivers.

  • Filling a Welly for the RNLI

    Published 21/05/19, by Sara Lindley

    The children in the Magpie class have responded in a fantastic way to the challenge of raising funds for the RNLI this past week.

    Today we had a look inside our welly and decided to count up the total we had raised so far.

    An amazing maths lesson was born!

    The younger children in the class became great at recognising the different coins. We sorted them into separate piles of coins the groups then calculated the total amount of coins donated so far.  Lots of 2, 5 and 10 times tables being put to good use. The good news is ...... we have raised enough to enable the RNLI to buy a special set of thermal gloves.  The halfway total was £29.78

    We are also looking forward to our visitor who is a representative for the RNLI. Mr Denis Redhead is coming in to talk to the children tomorrow and I am sure he will be impressed with the children's knowledge og Grace Darling and her daring sea rescue.

    Thank you all so much for taking part of this fundrasing activity. The children have really embraced it.

  • A Musical Morning

    Published 11/05/19, by Sara Lindley

    We had a very musical morning on Friday.

    As part of our Land Ahoy topic the children were played a piece of music by Rossini from his William Tell Overture - The Storm!

    If you want to hear it press here and you will be taken to youtube.

    By just listening to the music the children were transported into the middle of a storm!

    They were asked to draw lines or shapes in response to the music. Every child created a different piece of work. The music went from being quiet and calm to loud and frightening.
