Key Stage 3 spent the morning of the 22nd April celebrating the start of ‘Spectrum’ their new topic area. The morning was spent discussing the relationship between what pupils thought the word Spectrum represented to them e.g. colours, rainbows, feelings etc and relating it to the six school values that will support the boy’s growth into confident adults who are able to lead healthy, happy and successful lives. As you can see from the pictures, the boys enjoyed being creative by making stain glass windows, expressing their emotions through colourful scatter spray canvases and also putting thought into what rainbows symbolise across the world and throughout history. Well done for all your wonderful efforts.
Lower school created oceans in bottles.
Lower School have a mystery reader on a Friday morning each week. This is where an individual reads a book to the children and then children have time to ask the reader questions about their career. Jessica Maier, Littlegreen Governor was our first mystery reader of 2021. Written by Fay Cripps, Head of Learning - KS2 Jess was our first virtual Mystery Reader and she chose the Night Bus to read to lower school. Jess had all four classes gripped with the scary story of the man with the yellow face. Bailey asked how old the book was because it talked about the boy visiting a photobooth. After Jess finished reading, Lloyd wanted to know who she was? Jess told us that she is a Governor for our school and lives just up the road and can see Littlegreen from her house. We learnt that Jess went to an art school and studied to be a Graphic Designer. A Graphic Designer is someone that creates adverts, logos, labels, packaging for products using pictures and letters. Jess show us some examples - Branston pickle label, magazine cover, recipe card and an instruction leaflet. Lloyd was very excited to find out that graphic designers could work for a gaming company.
