Queens Picnic......................

On Wednesday 20th April, children’s author Tom Palmer came to spend the day with our Key Stage 2 pupils.  During the course of the day, he worked with each Key Stage 2 class - he spoke about his experience of being an author and also answered the many interesting questions he was asked.  Each session ended with a quiz, and a penalty shoot-out (with some of the teachers standing in as goalkeepers!) Our day ended with a book signing event in the hall.  We all had a thoroughly enjoyable day – as did Tom.  He has certainly inspired many of the children to read and write more!

Echolocation Empowers the Visually Impaired 

Daniel Kish has been in school to work with Mason in Year 2. He was visiting from California in order to teach Mason how to use echolocation to move around independently. They demonstrated what they have been working on to the whole school. We had some very interesting questions to ask.

 Visit from Jack Marshall, Radio 1 Teen Hero Award winner.

Jack went to London to receive his award after Nick Grimshaw from Radio 1 turned up at his house in Doncaster to surprise him with the news. He met lots of stars including Rita Ora, Ella Henderson and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. He was also pleased to meet Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford recently as part of his prize.

Jack climbs mountains and completes runs to raise money for charity although he is only 16 and has a number of physical disabilities. Jack really inspired us and we now have plans to do some fundraising later in the year.
