On Wednesday, Year 2 and Year 6 were treated to a performance of A Christmouse Tale by Pendle Productions to support their work in their fairytale topics.

WW2 Cake

For our WW2 day, the Year Sixes made chocolate “cake” as people in the UK would have during the war. The rations made it difficult then, but our taste-testers thought it was quite good!

In science the year 6’s have been looking at the effect light has on objects we see. We experimented with water in a glass, and a drawn arrow observed through the clear materials in order to understand refraction. Ask us what happened!

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.

Arts Festival

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.
