Lego League Begins!

We have 12 children from Year 4 and 5 who are taking part in the ‘First Lego League’ challenge this year. With support from two mentors and Mr Andrew, they will be creating a masterpiece over the next 11 weeks and then coding it to move however they want it to. They will be creating a poster and then presenting their creations at the Lego League Festival in July. They will be in teams of 6 and we can’t wait to see what they produce! In session 1, they met their team mates, discussed their hobbies and then created an area where a character could do some skateboarding! In just 15 minutes we were very impressed with what they came up with!

A Masterclass in Crumbles!

In Term 6, Year 5 will be using Crumbles in their Computing lessons, eventually leading towards building and coding a flood defence system to link with our Geography topic. Mr Gerrie, from Amazing ICT, got us ready by giving us an introduction to the kits. We learned how to use the crocodile clips to link the battery pack, Crumble and Sparkle, and then created a code to create a sequence of flashing lights. The children were brilliant and debugging their codes and showing resilience and we are excited to use the kits properly later in the year!

Preparations are underway for attendance week next week (22nd-26th April)! Be in school on time everyday for the chance to win prizes!

Site Security Feedback

Keeping children, parents, staff and visitors safe is incredibly important to us here at Sir Alexander Fleming Nursery and Primary School. As part of our site security risk assessment, we recently asked parents for their views on our site security and grounds.

Thank you to the parents and carers who completed the survey. Your voice matters! As a result, we have made some amendments to improve our site security based on your comments. This parent guide includes those changes as well as information on our current safety systems.

PE News

Hi all,
It is so important for our children to be physically active in school but also when they are at home too.
We are increasing our PE sessions so that children for Year 1 to Year 6 get two hours a week and reviewing lunchtimes to provide lots of physical activities.
Read our PE News to know why it is so important….

Happy holidays…

Sonnets in Year 5

Year 5 have been tackling Sonnets in their English lessons recently. We analysed a range of Shakespeare’s sonnets and found out about their syllable and stanza structure. We then explored the reasons we love our planet and then wrote a sonnet with all our ideas in! The children worked extremely hard and should be proud of their final outcome!

Library Visit

Mr Andrew’s class visited Madeley Community Library this morning. The children were very excited to visit as 13 of the class had never visited a library before. All the class were given the opportunity to sign up for a library card and 15 children were given their card today which enables them to take up to 16 books out at a time!

The class had a tour of the library, looked at all the different sections, listened to some poetry and then explored the books. Those who were given a library card were able to use the scan machines to take a book home too! We will definitely be going back next term!
