On Friday 8th July we took part in a Fair Trade Day. We found out about what is meant by fairly traded products and what this means for the people who produce them. We also looked at the use of plastic packaging for these products and thought about how this could be reduced. During the afternoon, we used fairly traded products to bake cakes and cookies to sell after school at our fair.
On Tuesday 5th June, the children participated in a launch day for their new science related topics. Throughout school, the children were engaged in exciting activities designed to foster a spirit of enquiry and discovery within the classrooms. In Year 6, after researching the heart and lungs, the children set about creating giant models of both of these organs. They ensured that they applied their research when making these. Once they have dried out, the children will be painting them in the appropriate colours.

Year 1 visited Clumber Park as part of a workshop looking at plants and trees. The Learning Rangers took the children around the park where they identified different trees and plants and discussed their four basic parts. The children had a great time exploring in the forest and saw how this was an excellent habitat for many different types of animal. Year 1 are looking forward to the follow up activities back at school.

On Friday 23rd March, the children participated in Sport Relief. Sports clothes were allowed to be worn by staff and pupils for a donation of 50p. Each class also ran a mile around the playground- it was a great test of fitness, endurance and resilience!

On World Book Day, the children and staff dressed up as characters from their favourite books despite the snowy weather! It was brilliant to see so many different costumes and it was interesting to find out about the favourite books of the children and teachers.
Last week, Edna G. Olds welcomed a visitor from a school in Spain. Pilar, who is a teacher at a school in the north of Spain, came to see how we did things at Edna G. Olds. She thoroughly enjoyed her time in school and practising her English. The children also had the opportunity to practise their Spanish and learn some new words and phrases.

On Friday 9th February, all of the children at Edna G. Olds were mixed and sent to different classrooms to share their learning from this half-term. It was an extremely enjoyable and informative experience as we got to find out all about what the other classes have been learning and we also got the opportunity to look at the art work they have produced.
