Don’t forget its the Childrens University graduation ceremeony this Saturday! Those graduating should arrive at the Chancellors Building in the main entrance in full school uniform at 9.30am. This gives enough time to change into full graduation caps and gowns and have professional photos taken (providing photographic permission has been received).

Looking forward to meeting all our children and parents there!

Yesterday afternoon year 6 learnt all about various entrepreneurs and were shocked to learn of the lives and backgrounds of some of these! I have included the links of two that particularly surprised the children. We learnt that no matter what age you are or background you are from, never give up on your goals!



Were you as shocked as us?

Entrepreneurship in Year 6 ….

Today Year 6 learned all about entrepreneurship in a session taught by Mrs Hartles. We were inspired by the perseverance of various entrepreneurs who really lived out a ‘rags to riches’ journey and became successful. We found out about J.K Rowling, and Levi Roots who showed that with hard work and determination, despite set backs, they made their millions!


We had a group task which involved making decisions about how to spend tokens we were given. We had 20 minutes to make pyramids from some sheets of templates but had to buy all our resources with the tokens. The idea was to use our tokens wisely and once the pyramids were made we could sell them for a profit. The time flew and we soon learnt that our decisions about what to buy and how to use he resources was important. The team that won the challenge were the ‘pyramids’ team in 6F coincidentally! Well done for the great team work!
