On Tuesday 28th March, Year 6 took part in a science, technology, engineering and maths day along with children from other L.E.A.D schools. We were set a variety of different challenges such as building the tallest tower possible which could hold a 'helicopter' out of only paper, glue and wooden sticks. Throughout the day we had to use our resilience, problem solving and creativity to complete each task.

Green Day

On 17th March 2017, Edna G. Olds Academy celebrated Green Day. Each class had different questions to investigate which had been chosen by Eco Council. In the afternoon, all of the children also participated in a special sharing session where they could tell each other about what they had learnt in the morning. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the day and the experience of researching and finding out more about the environment.

Core Behaviours Launch Day

On Friday 3rd March 2017, we had a launch day for our ‘Core Behaviours’. As a school we have identified six characteristics that we believe are important to the children’s development both inside and outside of the classroom. Activities aimed at developing motivation, resilience, personal responsibility, courage, self-awareness and creativity took place throughout the school. It has been wonderful to see the children displaying character traits that will support them in becoming lifelong learners.

World Book Day

Yesterday Edna G. Olds Academy celebrated World Book Day by coming to school dressed as their favourite character from a story. We also had a special sharing afternoon where all of the children shared their favourite book and read a section to their partner from a different year group. It was great to see all of the children embracing World Book Day and having lots of fun.
