A visit from the Local Police and Fire Service

During the past few days, rescue departments including the Police and Fire Service have come to visit De Havilland Primary School, in specific, Early Years. They taught the children how to use the rescue equipment and gave the pupils a chance to operate the water hose and sit in a police car. Here are some quotes from Early Years:

“I enjoyed riding the fire engine and hearing the loud fire engine!” Aida

“The sound of the police sirens made me jump!” Juwariyah

“The police told us how to cross the road sensibly.” Eleanor

“I liked seeing the water squirt out the hose, that was definitely the best part! Aida

Overall, it was a great opportunity for Early Years to see a real police car and fire engine and they all enjoyed it!

Marvellous Mayan Masks

During the past few weeks, Year 5 have been looking at Mayans. Recently, they have been looking at Mayan masks and have created their own to showcase their understanding. 5C and 5S have all taken part in this activity and they enjoyed making the masks. It was quite difficult as they were making the masks out of clay and needed to work quickly, but Year 5 enjoyed the challenge! We used various tools and strategies to create the best masks possible. Pupils from 5C and 5S said “My favourite part about the mask was designing, carving, adding 3D parts and shaping it”.

Glee Club amazes at The Galleria

Last Friday, Glee Club (the school’s choir) had a trip to the Galleria. They sang a variety of songs to raise money for The Willow Foundation (Willow is a national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days). It was an amazing experience for our young musicians as they sang for their audience. Here are some quotes from people who went on the trip. ”It was really fun and exciting, we tried our best and the results were fabulous”.

“It was a phenomenal show and the audience really enjoyed it and so did I”.
