Jungle Fever

posted 27th Mar

Imogen, Dominic, Eva, Gemma and Janae were so moved and inspired by the sad story of the White Rhino during their topic Jungle Fever that they decided to try and do something to help other endangered species. They have developed a campaign which they will be sharing with the whole school for donations to the WWF. This is a wonderful attitude to have and we are incredibly moved by their determination. It's great to see our pupils inspired by their learning and confident enough to make a difference for the future. Well done!

What an opportunity. Pupils in Year 5 were invited to work with the composer Errollyn Wallen and the team at Aldeburgh Music on the Friday Afternoon project. This saw the children work with Errollyn to exclusively perform the pieces which she has composed for the national music project which is run every year by Aldeburgh Music. Then Friday 19th January saw the class travel the short distance to Britten's home - The Redhouse and perform in front of a select audience.

This week has seen all of the classes across the school beavering away on their projects for the Christmas Fair. It has seen them explore the world of work with demonstrations from local business people as well as wider companies such as BT and Tesco. The children have taken this inspiration to develop class businesses in the hope of building profit from an initial investment of £5 from the PTA. We can't wait to see which class makes the biggest profit.
