Children in Need – Superheroes Day

Friday 13th November certainly wasn’t unlucky for us here at Loders Primary School, surrounded by Superheroes all ready to dash to our aid …

Their brilliant super-powers helped raise £66.65 for Children in Need – well done everyone!

Diwali in Woodpeckers

On 11th November the Woodpeckers festooned themselves in Indian dress to experience the Hindu Diwali – the Festival of Light.

They enjoyed Indian food tasting, including naan, lime pickle, poppadoms and mango chutney.  They looked at Rangoli patterns and Dayi light painting, as well as Melindi hands – the tradition of decorating the palms with intricate designs.

Jackdaws visit to the Fleet Air Arm Museum

The Jackdaws visited the Fleet Air Arm Museum on Remembrance Day.  They were given talks on the Battle of Britain;  their topic this term, and other aspects of World War II.  They walked around the displays and clambered over a fair few, as well as enjoying the simulated helicopter ride and experiencing how it feels to be standing on the deck of an aircraft carrier.

Along with staff and other museum visitors they joined in the two minutes silence at 11am.

Here they are pictured in front of a Vickers’ Walrus.

Jackdaws Welly Walk

Drawing on the text Where My Wellies Take Me by Michael Morpurgo, the Jackdaw’s welly walk aimed at inspiring pupils in their use of adjectives, metaphors and similes when re-telling a journey.

Despite the grim weather, the walk was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Many thanks to our intrepid parent-helpers.
