Key Stage 1 have made a fantastic start to the year, learning about many exciting topics! Year 1 have been demonstrating excellent teamwork practising their map skills in Geography as well as recreating Van Gogh masterpieces in Art. They've also practised defending and positioning in P.E. Year 2 have been learning about using expression with their voices to re-enact Cinderella which then helped them write detailed parts of the story. As well as this, they have been using resources in maths to learn about place value and showing part-whole models. Keep up the Positive Learning Key Stage 1!
We are very excited to announce that over summer break the Academy had solar panels installed across the site - to do our bit to help the environment. Having the panels on site will also be a great opportunity to not only teach the pupils about renewable energy and its importance, but show them in real life!
It's the end of the first day already and it was wonderful to see so many happy & excited faces, ready and eager to learn! Welcome back!
I'm excited to be welcoming everyone back for another amazing year! School starts again on Wednesday (Thursday for Reception) and everyone here at the Academy is looking forward to seeing you all again! Ms. Flynn
Nursery - The older children have been researching facts about spiders this week. They have been learning about their features, behaviours and their habitat. We have been singing spider songs and have enjoyed spider stories as well as drawing fantastic pictures of them!
Nursery- The children have been exploring black and white. They have been using cotton buds to paint intricate pictures using their own ideas.
Autumn time in Saplings: we have been putting together an Autumn display, the children have been collecting items in the forest garden. It would be lovely if you could find some items to add to this.
Nursery- As part of our theme on 'Celebrations' we are looking at Harvest. The children have helped to create a bakery role play and there is a display to enjoy.
LIFE Academies trust signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant when we formed and at the beginning of this year we were invited to apply for Silver membership and we are happy to say we have won! Tobias Ellwood MP said: "I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year's Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the Armed Forces Community. The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our Reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick and their families. We've seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit."
