Techno Team Robot Olympics

Here we all are trying out the new Dash robots! What do you all think?

Perseverance Video

Hi

Do you remember this video we watched in a SEALs assembly last year? I thought I’d share it with you for two reasons, firstly the animation is fabulous and secondly because of the message… If at first, you don’t succeed, keep trying and you will… eventually.

Can you tell us about a time when you kept trying and found success in the end?

Caxton’s New Recycling Bins

Hi everyone,

In our ongoing quest to make Caxton greener we have added lots of new recycling bins to the playground. I have put labels on the to make it easier to remember what goes where. Also, please remember that aluminium foil goes in the yellow plastics bin too. There are lots of them on the playground now. SO,  LET’S BE GREENER!!!

Eco Competition!!!

Want to win a scooter and help the school become more ‘ecofriendly’ at the same time? Here is the video, for the competition, with all the information on it.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is come up with an eco idea for the school to help us to be greener.

It could be anything from improving our recycling, wasting less, reducing our water or energy consumption, creating a school garden, etc.

To enter you need to tell us:

  1. what the idea is, 
  2. why it is important, for example what environmental issue will it help, i.e. fighting against climate change, protecting the oceans, reducing waste or pollution, etc.,
  3. will it have any other benefits; for example saving energy will help the school save money, or a school garden with help students learn about and enjoy healthier food choices. 

 

The best idea will be chosen based on the following criteria:

Originality

Persuasive Argument 

Practicality 

The winning idea will then be set up in the school to help us to be greener.

Entries can be submitted in any format, i.e. written on paper or computer, as a presentation, movie, etc. All entries need to be given to your class teacher by 30th September. All entrants will also have a chance of being chosen to be one of this year’s Eco-Warriors.

Welcome Back to School!!!

We are all very excited to be back at school and hope that you are too. If you would like to tell us something interesting about yourself or what you have been doing recently, please post it here. Remember to use good English and not too many emojis!

Also, only use your first name when online and you can add your class if you want to, for example, John 5E.

Y5s, we will use the blog quite a bit to help you with your learning, but don’t worry – I will come round to the classrooms to show you how to use it. At the same time you will learn how to behave safely and sensibly when online.

 

Digital Learning Competition

Thank you all for your entries. Everyone who entered will get a purple form at the start of next term. The winner of the prize was Fernando in Y5, who made lots of games in Scratch, but there were lots of creative entries. Well done Fernando and everyone who entered.

World Environment Day

Happy World Environment Day!!
This year’s World Environment Day’s theme is Beating Air Pollution, as it is a global health crisis:
  • 9 out of 10 people breathe toxic air
  • 7 million premature deaths are caused by air pollution each year
To celebrate World Environment Day here in Caxton Primary the eco warriors have been giving Year Group assemblies to educate the students on the issue and what they can do in their daily lives to help improve the air quality here in Valencia. They also gave the classes plants which help to purify the air in their classrooms.
In addition, we are running a mask challenge, whereby students need to take a photograph of themselves wearing a mask (a symbol of air pollution), doing the action they will do to help beat air pollution. Deadline for photographs 14th June.
