Lacey Gardens + St. Michael’s = Fun Maths!

Lacey Gardens + St. Michael’s = Fun Maths! Mr Sandy brought his Year 6 Class from Lacey Gardens to take part in a Maths Challenge activity with our own Y6s this morning. The children tried to solve a range of maths tasks together including six digit place value yahtzee, word problems and shape. Best of all, the children enjoyed making new friends and all are looking forward to us visiting Lacey Gardens in the near future. Good work!

St. Michael’s Day

Year 1 remember St. Michael’s Day Each 29th September we try to mark our Saints Day in some way. This year we took all of Year 1 up to St Michael’s Church for a ‘Treasure Trail’ exploring the inside and outside of the building. The children were delighted to find images of sheep, peacock feathers, hosts of angels and even two lions in the beautiful stained-glass windows. Perhaps most exciting of all was finding a trap-door that led under the eastern end of the church and the thought what might be found if we went down into it!

Cup Final Defeat!

Did it cross the line? No, this is not another debate on whether the Russian linesman got it right to decide if Geoff Hurst’s 2nd goal in the 1966 World Cup Final really did cross the line or not, rather it was the hot topic of debate by the school football team on their return from the Louth Schools Soccer Tournament at Cordeaux! With our B Team having finished a spirited 3rd in their group, our A Team, victors of the ‘Red League’, faced Market Rasen Primary School in the competition final. A 2-1 win became a 2-2 draw when

Maths Week Fun!

After a wide range of activities we all agree that Maths can be fun! Over the course of the week children made maths games, Top Trump Cards, giant 3D structures and even ate Numicon Biscuits! The children also went on number searches and followed Maths Treasure Trails around the town designed by Mrs Cass and the week culminated with a design a Maths Hat Competition. We all learnt that numbers and shapes are all around us and some parents and grandparents found Maths can be fun too!

Lincolnshire Summer Games

The Lincolnshire School Games is a chance for all schools in Lincolnshire to build on their existing work and boost school sport by creating a year-round competition calendar for all students. We had two teams qualify for the Summer Event representing the Wolds Sports Partnership alongside Lacey Gardens at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre for hockey and ‘Inclusive Tri-Golf’. The children had a fantastic day with our hockey team winning the ‘Sporting Values’ plaque for the way they played the game and the golfers winning silver medals, for finishing second out of six teams, with Lacey Gardens coming top! Well done

Down on the farm!

Down on the farm! Year 1 and Year 2 had a wonderful (if wet) time at Rushmoor Country Park learning all about our furry and feathered friends! The children loved feeding the lambs and goats, cuddling rabbits, stroking rats(!) and holding owls! Tortoises might not be quite as cuddly, but they are fascinating all the same! A great day out!

Mud Day Fun!

Mud Day Fun! The children and staff in Foundation Stage had great fun exploring all things mud related as part of International Mud Day! No-one in the school was safe from a mud pack (including the Office!) as the outdoor area became a giant ‘Texture Kitchen.’ However, the ‘Mud Pudding’ tasted delicious!
