Year 6 were fortunate enough to participate in the world’s largest Cool Aeronautics event, hosted by Leonardo. Students built working model cars in the teams, before designing bridges to transport the cars across a frozen river.
Year 4 Tudor Day
Both classes had an amazing day dressed as rich and poor Tudors. They enjoyed Tudor art, archery, Tudor dancing followed by a Henry VIII ball and then to end the day, a banquet of Tudor food! Head over to the class pages to see more pictures!
Thank you to everyone in our school community, who made a fantastic effort to come to school in their favourite pyjamas and slippers! The school raised an amazing £527 for the charity, thank you to all who donated.
Year 2 and Year 4 were lucky to have a visit from Pete the Poet today. We had a great time.
For more pictures, see the class pages.
Our Remembrance Garden is now completed, ready for the service on Wednesday morning and for the local community to view from the school gates. The names displayed in the trees and on the fence are names of the fallen soldiers from WW1 and WW2, that lived in our local area. Some can also be found on the memorial on Preston Road, do you recognise any family names? Thank you to everybody who donated recycled red materials to adorn our poppies, as you can see they stand proudly amongst the cascade of poppies.
As part of our Black History Month celebrations, we were able to invite in Kaspa from the Zamble African Dance company to teach Year 5 and 6 about the culture surrounding ceremonial drumming! Head over to the Class Pages to discover more...
Head over to the Year 6 Class Pages to see more photos from the Evacuee Day, helping to conclude our World War 2 topic!
The children were delighted with Malcolm's magic tricks. He wowed us with his multiplying sweet trick and the hall was filled with roars of laughter. A lovely end to a very busy half term!
A sea of yellow entered our gates here at Preston Primary for World Mental Health Day. Spreading positivity, we discussed why we should talk about how we feel and had great fun digging through our wardrobes to don something yellow to raise money for this great cause!
In a year that has seen the introduction of class bubbles and social distancing, the school was unable to hold our usual Harvest Festival assemblies.
The festival is an important time for learners to reflect on how our food is produced and just as importantly, an opportunity to give something back to our local community.
A big thank you to our families who donated gifts, which will be delivered to The Lord’s Larder to distribute to members of the community in need. A special thank you to Rev.Ruth who shared an online Harvest assembly, that all the children could enjoy in their classes.
Some of our children from Year 3 and 4 were fortunate enough to work with our partnership organisation, the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust this autumn. The pupils worked hard on thinking about the themes of resilience and perseverance in sport and how they could apply this to their own lives and academic schoolwork. Well done and thank you to Lewis and Louis from YTCST who came to help our pupils in their endeavour. See picture above.
Musical Theatre Club
This week we had a backstage pass to the makings of Matilda The Musical and the children learned all about how to become a Matilda! We had lots of fun and they learned that 'sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty!'
National Poetry Day 2020 is upon us and we are very excited to share a range of poems in class and create our own too! Poetry is a powerful art form for exploring abstract ideas and often describing and discovering the world around us. The purpose of National Poetry Day is to fire the imagination of our minds and provide opportunities to see things from others’ perspectives. It is open to absolutely everyone to join in, quietly or noisily in rewarding and enjoyable ways!
On World Heart Day, pupils had the opportunity to take part in a session in CPR.
Learning the basic skills of first aid and techniques like CPR will give our children the confidence to know that they can step in to help someone in need and in the most extreme cases could potentially save a life.
