Stone Age to Iron Age
The Year 3 classes have been learning all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children used a range of sources of evidence and their questioning skills during their Stone Age day to learn how humans changed from hunter gatherers to early farmers. They also learnt how the introduction of metal through the Copper – Bronze and Iron Ages changed the way people grew their crops to how they fought in wars.
Year 3 wrote persuasive texts advertising samosas as part of our topic on India. We then used the IMovie app on the IPads to make our own TV adverts with voiceovers, music and titles! It was a huge learning experience for everyone, but the Year 3s really synergised and collaborated well to complete the task! We hope you enjoy these examples.

Leader in Me
For the first 8 days of the Autumn term we have been introducing all the children to the 7 habits and our new whole school project: The Leader in Me.
Please see the link to our daily newsletters which introduced parents to each habit and our celebration day on Friday.
We are seeking to teach children that they are the leader of themselves and with the 7 habits they can become leaders of others.

On Tuesday 2nd July, Queen Emma enjoyed an Arts Festival where all classes enjoyed a mix of art, English and musical activities. We had a great day (as you can see by the pictures below).
Nursery enjoyed a musical sessions with Rat-a-Tat and lots of outdoors activities. Reception and KS1 listened to local group Shake, Rattle and Roll who brought a range of exciting musical instruments in. Year 1 also had an amazing morning working together to paint outside. Year 2 created some weird and wonderful magical potions and investigated ‘The Air we Breathe.’
KS2 enjoyed a musical performance from members of St John’s Choir. Year 3 also loved a recorder workshop and made beautiful natural clay faces. Year 4 decorated tiles with stunning Islamic patterns and Year 5 made origami to hang in school. Year 6 enjoyed a performance from The King’s Men at Queen Edith before making dreamcatchers.
Special thanks must go to volunteers from the community who came in to run some of the activities. It was greatly appreciated and the whole day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Cross Country Championship
The children in KS2 had a fantastic morning at Netherhall taking part in the annual Cambridge CSSP Cross Country Championship! The key theme of this year’s event was ‘determination’ and the Queen Emma team certainly were determined! We were so proud of all who took part. We look forward to returning again next year!
