The New Eco Warriors 2018/19

The New Eco Warriors 2018/19

We were overwhelmed with the response to this year’s request for eco-warriors, receiving 87 entries in total from years 3 to 6! It is wonderful to see so many students passionate about the environment and wanting to make a difference. We had some fantastic entries, which made it hard to decide on the final winners, but we finally have our chosen 16, who will help the school to be greener this year and inspire others to do the same.
The eco-warriors for this year are: Mariia (3A), Alexandra  (3B), Sapphira  (3C), Alejandro  (3D), Lucia  (4A), Carolina (4B), Emma  (4C), Paloma  (4D), Rosa (5A), Amelie  (5A), Sara  (5B), Cristina  (5C), Lucia  (5D), Jason  (6A), Carmen (6C) and Claudia  (6D).
A big congratulations to our new eco-warriors for this academic year!

Have You Done a Random Act of Kindness?

What did you do today to fill buckets? Add a comment to let us know.


Charlie’s Lost Chapter!!!

Wow! I’m so intrigued to find out what the rooms, characters and confectionary will be like! Y5s – have you got any ideas you’d like to share? What kind of character would you add? A kind, respectful, bucket-filling child or a nasty, spiteful, bucket-dipping disaster of a child…



Following on from today’s assembly, here is your next challenge. Write an acrostic poem, like Ms Stenhouse’s below, to represent what friendship means to you. Purple forms for the best ones! You can post it here, make a poster (digital or on paper), make a video or anything really to present your poem, but try to be creative.

Here’s Telma with her wonderful poem! She was the first pupil to get creative. Well done and thanks for filling our bucket to the very top!

And here’s Carla’s poem (Y5D). Carla certainly fills our bucket every time we see her with her endless positivity!

Here’s another entry from Louie (and friends). I’m sure you’ll agree, he made fabulous use of his iPad! He had sound on the original, but it hasn’t come out in Google Drive. That’s my challenge – to add the vocals… I will and then post it here. You will be able to see that it is more effective with them. What do you think of this version? Can you tell what apps he used?

Here’s the one with sound! We did it together… teamwork rules!



Wonderful Robotics Work!!!

Hi there,


Here is just a sample of some of the creative and interesting work that the children in the robotics club do. Absolutely amazing explanation from Fernando too. A purple form coming your way – keep up the cracking work!!!



World Smile Day!

Hi everyone,

Today is World Smile Day (and Teacher Appreciation Day, so I hope you were very kind to your teacher), so how was your day? Did you spread a smile and were you kinder than you need to be? I know lots of pupils gave me a splendid smile and really filled my bucket.  I hope your kindness challenge is going well. Let us know how your day was please.

Y6 Computing – Using Word/Google Docs

Here’s a video from a few years ago. Your class may use Google Docs/Sheets, but it is very similar to Word and EXCEL. Good luck.

The 100 is Coming…. But What Is It?

What could it be? Have you seen some posters around school? A hundred what? Well, my attention have certainly been grabbed.  A purple form for the most entertaining, inventive idea of what it could be. But make sure you expand your ideas and give detail. Explain WHY.

Are You Up For The Kindness Challenge?

So, how are you getting on with the challenge? Let us know what you have done and what positive effects it has had.

Welcome Back and Happy Roald Dahl Day!

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! We are all very excited to see you all back at school and hope that you are all full of enthusiasm for the new school year.

Today, as you probably know, is Roald Dahl Day, so please let us know what your favourite Roald Dahl book is and why. I think mine is probably Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it is full of humour, has a sprinkling of danger, lots of suspense and of course is a fabulously constructed story. I love both the movies that have been made too, however, I have a particular fondness for the old one due to watching it as a child.

So, which Roald Dahl book do you think is a real page-turner and you would highly recommend it to someone in your year group?

Happy blogging and remember to read the blog rules before writing a comment.
