The LG Radio Show Live with Year 5

During the last week of this half term, Year 5 embarked on a new challenge - bringing ‘live’ news to the school community via what we liked to refer to as the ‘LG Radio Show’ aka the academic tannoy equipment!  The students in Year 5 took on this challenge as part of their IPC topic ‘Making the News’, which has involved researching and exploring the developments of news and communication methods over time. Each morning at 8am, three children broadcast the news, live, including lunch menus, announcements, weather and also world news updates. Everyone enjoyed listening to the news - stay tuned, we may decide to broadcast ‘live’ again in the near future!

Choir Club travelled to Manchester

On Sunday 10th February 2019 our Choir Club travelled to Manchester along with Samantha, Jean-Seb and Kirsty. 

As part of the IPC topic 'Different Places, Similar Lives', we visited a school in the UK, shared lessons, assembly, playtime and lunchtime  and had a choir rehearsal together. Everyone had lots to learn from each other and both children and staff made new friends. Later in the day we travelled to the Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices Concert. We had been busy rehearsing for months and were very excited to be part of the largest children's concerts in the world. Everyone sang and danced all evening and the atmosphere was amazing!
 
The next day we went to the Blue Planet Aquarium and enjoyed a fascinating workshop. Looking at all the different creatures was really interesting and we especially liked travelling through the Underwater Shark Tunnel which is home to Europe's largest collection of sharks. Afterwards we went to Freedome, an aerial freestyle park where we jumped on the trampolines, crawled across ladders and swung into cargo nets. It was a brilliant challenge and everybody had lots of fun!
 
Later in the evening we shared a delicious meal at a lovely restaurant in the City Centre and then made our way to the Manchester Opera House to see a fantastic performance of the West End hit musical, 'Annie'. It was a wonderful end to our visit to Manchester. 
 
We hope you enjoy watching our Manchester movie!

Year 9 Cruise: Part 2

Arriving in the early morning, the students went on a fascinating walking tour around the historical city of Valletta in Malta. We visited the old town with its fortresses, ancient churches, government buildings and narrow streets, all built around the natural harbour.
