Sweetie Rocks

By Science, Year 3

As an introduction to our science topic on rocks, Y3 used ‘sweetie rocks’. We examined each sweetie rock, and then sorted them into as many different groups as we could according to their properties: soft/hard, colourful/not colourful, round edges/not-round edges, etc. This is helping us prepare for understanding the differences in real rocks and comparing their properties.

School Uniform Shop

By Community, FS1, FS2, Fund Raising, House Jericho, Letters to Parents, Lost Property, PSHE, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

We are truly grateful for all of your uniform donations. Every night Mrs Nightingale restocks the clothes line and they are selling fast.

In assembly, we have discussed with the children about how cool it is to reuse and recycle- we hope that the school uniform shop will send out a clear message that they can make a difference to the world we live in.

Thank you,
The St Alban’s Eco Warriors!

Swapping Card Games – Playtimes

By Community, Dining, PSHE, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Dear parents and carers,

When children have a proper break during playtime, they tend to perform better in their classes. With this in mind, we are constantly working on making playtimes more enjoyable for all our children.

We have noticed that many children express a keen interest in card games and swapping. If your child would like to take part in card games, then we kindly request that they read this letter.

In the upcoming weeks, we have planned various activities to enhance playtime for the children. Our focus will be on teaching them clapping songs such as “The Sailor Went to Sea, Sea, Sea,” as well as introducing games like French skipping and cat’s cradle. These activities aim to engage the children, promote social interaction, and provide them with a diverse range of play options.

Thank you for your continued support.
