On Thursday 6th September, a fantastic new topic was launched in Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls. To great excitement, the children found out that they will be spending the term creating an Escape Room for family and friends. Before they are able to do this, both classes will have the opportunity to experience a real life Escape Room at Escape Sheffield!
During the morning and afternoon, the children proved that they are more than up to the challenge by completing a range of mathematical puzzles. They solved riddles, used a cipher wheel, answered a QR code quiz and used symbols to crack codes.
Watch this space – we’ll update you with our plans for our very own Lemony Snicket themed Escape Room over the next few weeks. The children are very excited to make a start…
Congratulations to our amazing Key Stage 2 children on their fantastic production of Bugsy Malone. Singing, acting and dancing were all superb. We know that parents, carers, family and friends must be as proud as the adults in school. Well done!
Here are some of the other stunning entries to our ‘Decorate an Egg’ competition. As you can see, we have some highly creative children in our school … and who doesn’t love a good egg pun?
As you can tell, our judges had an eggs-tremely difficult job, but here are some of our winners, along with their prizes:
On Wednesday 14th March, the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had an amazing day at the Big Bang Fair, which was held at Birmingham NEC. There were so many things to see and do. Here, you can see us making and testing rivets, having a go at breaking a world record and waiting to see some fantastic shows.
On Monday and Tuesday, the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls launched their new topic by finding out all about the Hindu festival of Makar Sankranti.
The children designed and created kites, researched and produced a presentation all about the festival and decorated the class cow with beautiful paper origami flowers. Additionally, we made delicious Indian sweets: chocolate barfi and coconut ladoo.
At the end of the day on Tuesday, we had the opportunity to taste the sweets and fly the kites. As you can see, some of the kites were more successful than others!
