Children in Year 5 were out this morning watching a performance of 'It's No Joke!' which prompted some interesting and sensible discussion and questions.
As part of Luton Community Safety Partnership's Serious Violence Strategy, the Flavasum Trust together with Alternative Learning and Progression Service (ALPS) secured funding from the Home Office and Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation to pay for the Comedy School to perform ‘It’s No Joke!’, a play which uses comedy to explain the damage knives can do to the person carrying them, their friends and families, as well as to anyone unlucky enough to be a victim.
Peter Sinclair, Chair of Trustees of the Flavasum Trust said: “The rise in knife crime is causing everyone to worry, especially parents. Are our children safe when they go out? Who are they meeting? We can’t keep them indoors just because we’re scared they might be at the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s why the Flavasum Trust wants ‘It’s No Joke!’ a play about knife crime, to be seen by as many young people as possible.
“ ‘It’s No Joke!’ is a unique way to help school-aged children understand the dangers of carrying a knife and what they must do if they know someone is carrying one.”
Year 5 celebrated VE Day today as part of their Fantastic Finish. Here's a peek at some of the brilliant costumes and the children also to shared their work with their parents during the afternoon.
Year 5 have had a brilliant day today taking part in drama workshops with our friends from Oaklands College. Eagle class then enjoyed a performance of Percy the Penguin and the Quest for Flight, and Hawk class watched Bumble and Bee and the Quest for the Magic Flower. The children couldn't resist joining in with Baby Shark...
To start their work on the Second World War, Year have created some fantastic Blitz Artwork. The children tried hard to blend the colours using water colours.
In their science lessons, children predicted which solids would dissolve in water and which ones wouldn't. The solids were, salt, sugar, plasticine, sand, glitter, and flour. The sugar and the salt dissolved so the children learned they were soluble and the rest were insoluble.
Children in Year 5 are currently studying the Second World War. We were delighted this morning with some of the creative homework projects that this has inspired.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our coffee morning on Tuesday 11th September - the children performed brilliantly and staff were able to share what we are covering over the course of the year. You also helped us to raise lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Care!
