Grafham Water 2016

We have been writing thank you letters to the staff at Grafham Water and it has been great to look back at the experience and take time to reflect.  All the children had a fantastic time and came back with so many stories to tell their friends and family.  There were lots of wonderful moments where children challenged themselves to try new activities or to face their fears.  Some of the activities required lots of perseverance and they all showed that children at LCPS try their best and don’t give up!  Collaboration was a key part of many of the activities and the children really developed their team work skills.  It was lovely to see them encouraging and supporting each other to achieve their goal.  Going away together at the start of year 6 really helped the staff and children to get to know each other and build a positive relationship.  It has also made lots of the children feel more confident.  After all, if you can cycle almost ten miles, build a raft, reach dizzying heights and sail across a reservoir, you can do anything!  Below are (quite a lot of) photos of the four main activities that we hope you enjoy.

Mountain Biking - it's almost ten miles so we really had to persevere. You can see how proud we are of completing this challenge!

High Ropes and Crate Stacking - it was important to use empathy to help us encourage others to do their best in this challenge!

Sailing - Most of us had never tried sailing before so we needed to imitate our instructor and revise our steering to make sure we could sail across the reservoir.

Shakespeare Day

Still image for this video
Shakespeare Day: We are very excited to be holding a Shakespeare Day on Monday 10th October.
2016 marks the 400th anniversary of this world-famous playwright’s death and there have been many events across the country to celebrate him during the year. Now it’s our turn to get involved! During the day, children will have the opportunity to get involved in lots of exciting activities to introduce them to the world of Shakespeare. For example, they might be taking part in drama, art, making puppets or even doing some Tudor cooking! There are some lovely games and activities on the CBBC website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/curations/shakespeare if you would like to explore Shakespeare more with your child at home.

Health Week Spring 2016

We had a great week learning about how to keep our bodies and minds healthy. All classes took part in an early morning activity to get their pulse rates going (year 6 even went for an early morning jog!), and also learnt about how to relax through stretching and breathing exercises.

In the afternoon, children had a chance to take part in a variety of activities that promoted healthy eating; healthy bodies and keeping a happy and healthy mind! Have a look at our photos to see some of the things we got up to!

Art Workshop with Carolyn Ash ~ Tuesday 14th October

A child from each class from Year 3 to Year 6 was chosen to take part in a one-off workshop, led by artist Carolyn Ash. The children first drew designs, some of which will be making it onto the finished mural. They then worked collaboratively to attach pieces of glass and pottery to collage the mural, which will be completed Saturday 18th October and will be on permanent display in Welney Wetlands Centre. Please feel free to go along and take a look!

Conkers at Littleport!

Conkers is a great traditional game, from years gone by, that we encourage at our school.

It's perfect for hand/eye coordination, counting and for keeping warm on those cold Autumn mornings - but most of all it's fun!

After the excitement last year in the local and national press and radio, we are making it a tradition at Littleport. Children are gathering conkers around the village, bringing them in, Mr Winters is helping to drill holes and we're all having a go!

Here are our photos from this Autumn....
