On 5th March, we were lucky enough to take part in the RoboKids assembly, meeting a real robot named ‘Nao’ and learning all about the future of space exploration. After the assembly, year 2 had the chance to build and program their own robot. They built their own robots and then gave them instructions to copy. They had so much fun and learned a lot!
On Friday 16th March we had a dance teacher come into school to teach us some Bollywood dance routines. Years 3, 4 and 5 took part in the workshops throughout the day learning the moves and putting them to music. At the end of the day, in glorious sunshine, the school gathered to do a performance of the routines for parents led by the dance teacher. Years 1, 2 and 6 also joined in along with parents and teachers. It was such a fun afternoon for everyone involved, thank you for joining in.
Below are an image gallery from these two events.
Each year group had the chance to clear up part of the school grounds as Palm Bay took part in Waste week 2018. Some of the types of litter that were collected surprised us.The activity has also helped us all to consider our own actions and to take more pride in our school environment. We have also been trying to reduce the food waste that we create, and have been putting our fruit and vegetable scraps into the ‘frog’ bin in the playground so that it can be composted.
World Book Day:
Despite the snowy weather, the children came in dressed as their favourite character for World Book Day. They took part in lots of fun activities to enhance their love of books. We started the day with a special assembly and did cross phase paired reading, making full use of our impressive new book corners.
Living Histories Workshop:
Year 3 were lucky enough to have a visit from the ‘Living Histories’ company to deliver an Ancient Greek day. All the children had fun dressing up and learning about life in Ancient Greek times. We recreated a market town, took part in a Greek Tragedy, delivered offerings to the Goddess Athena in the Panathenaic Procession, held our own Olympic Games and did our own carvings for the Parthenon. It was a wonderful learning experience that produced some high-quality work in class.
Below are images of these three exciting events.
