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.
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....
