KS2 enjoyed sharing Victorian Christmas traditions with their parents and friends. Parents were treated to some traditional Victorian gifts and a Victorian tea.
We took a trip to St Botolph’s Church in Skidbrooke to inspire us to right some horror stories. We looked around and did some grave rubbings, we even found four graves of Navy men from WWII that were pointing to the sea.
We had heard stories of a monk that haunted the church so we were on the lookout. The monk decided to join us but it was alright in the end as it was only Mr Burns.
We held a coffee morning at Phoenix Park Academy and invited parents, governors and other visitors to the school to help us raise money for a PGL trip for KS3 and playground equipment for KS2. We had a large raffle with prizes varying from a voucher for a haircut to a meal out for two. We also had a name card that was for and iPad mini that was kindly donated by primary IT. We would like to thank all those that came and all those that donated such lovely prizes, we have raised £250 so far and still counting.
KS2 visited the Khedrubje Kadampa Buddhist Centre as part of their RE subject during the term. They enjoyed exploring the peace garden and meditating in the meditation room.
KS3 visited the Arc Animal Shelter to do some volunteering. Whilst here our students had a tour of the site seeing the re-homing area and boarding kennels. Afterwards students got stuck in with helping to muck out stables for horses, goat pens, clean guinea pig hutches and bale hay for horses. Students really enjoyed visiting the Arc and helping out in the community.
KS2 enjoyed sharing their Djembe drumming skills with their parents and friends. Lisa, the drumming teacher, taught the children some clever phrases to aid their rhythm. Parents were amazed at how well they performed after only 5 half hour lessons. Next term, we are moving on to Samba band!
