Anti-Bullying Week
 
 
Every year, Laureate does Anti-Bullying Week. We sometimes host an event, for example people made a poster about Anti-Bullying. The School Council chose a first place, a second place and a third place. First place got their poster put up around the school.
 
 
Art
 
 
Laureate’s art is unique because children use their imagination wildly. Art influences children to work hard because it is a calming process. As art is a calming process, it helps children focus because it settles everyone. Laureate’s building is quite an artistic structure itself because our hall is a Victorian building. Art is an enthusiastic subject because it contains other subjects (e.g. maths for working out angles). We all know that there is no wrong answer in art. Art is a student favourite all across the world. As it is a school favourite, most people love this subject.
 

Assemblies

 

Assemblies at Laureate are a special time to celebrate children’s awards and achievements. These magnificent events only happen for 20 minutes, and only in the afternoons. The teacher walks up the children from the classrooms to the hall where the assemblies take place. Then, line by line, the children sit down on the floor and occasionally on the benches. Once the whole school is quiet and sat down, the assembly starts. The teachers prepare all the certificates and trophies, as well as a pair of School Councillors from one class who get their set of certificates to hand out. Then the Librarians come up and get their set to hand out, and all the other children who help out with the certificates including Sport Leaders.  Laureate also has other amazing assemblies including singing assemblies and Learning Characteristics assemblies. At singing assemblies, the children have a voice warm up to warm up their voices. After the voice warm up they have one, two, or three songs to practise. If it’s a group song (where more than one group is singing at different times) the children learn the song without the other groups, and once it’s learned the teachers split children into the number of groups there are. At Characteristic assemblies, a teacher tells a story related about the term’s Characteristics. There is the Problem Solver, the Active Learner, the Reflective Thinker, the Team Worker, the Proud Achiever and the Creative Explores. 

 

Break and Lunch
 
We have one break and one lunch a day. It is a time to have a break from lessons. At break we have 15 minutes and at lunch we have an hour. We have many different staff to look after the children. At lunch we allow them to ether bring their own packed lunch or have a delicious school dinner. We also have equipment for fun or education. We have a special area for each class on certain days: it is called the court where you can play football. 
 
 
 

Charity of the Year

 

Every year the School Council chooses three charities. Then an assembly is held. The school votes using Golden Mile bands. The charity with the most bands becomes the charity of the year and the school will organise fundraising events for the charity. All the money the school raises will be given to the charity.

 

Clubs
 
 
At Laureate, we do clubs like maths booster, singing, website, dance, computing and reading booster. We do lots of clubs because lots of people like them. We do lots of clubs after school because we want to have lots of smart people in our school.  We also have clubs in our lunch time. They are also fun because we do lots of fun things.

 
 
Computing
 
At laureate, we love to go on the laptops because we love to do coding in class. When we are done, we go on www.cbbc.co.uk/games. We have partners and sometimes we go on www.code.org.co.uk
At end of term, we sometimes go on the laptops and play games like www.coolmathgames.co.uk. Lots of people love to play and design on Scratch. 

English

 

In English, you learn to write in your English Book. When you do English, some people have fun doing different things. You become smarter and learn from your mistakes. When you are doing English, you learn how to write in full sentences.  In Partridge Class, we learnt about diary entries. We wrote about the children that were evacuated in World War 2. 

 

Golden Time

 

In Golden Time there are lots of things to do. There are lots of activities like playing outside, art, board games and singing. People always have fun. In the children’s class, if you move down the chart you go to orange. If you do it again, you move to red and that means you tick a block on the chart. One tick on the chart equals 2 minutes off your Golden Time.

 - Sports Leaders help out at sports day and make and host sports contests (like skipping, for example).

Library
 
The library is a magical place for many pupils, as they find new, exciting books to read.  Mrs Feely is a Librarian; pupils from year 4 to year 6 can be a Junior Librarian on lunch times. The Junior Librarians help with sorting books, sticking on codes in the books and borrowing and returning pupils’ books. As there are many incredible, interesting books to read, it is quite popular not just with pupils but also with a couple of teachers borrowing books. Sometimes for the pupil’s reading lessons they can go to the enchanted castle of the books (The Library) to choose a book and read it to the teacher. There are many categories of books for example picture books, non-fiction, chapter books, fairy tale books, comic books and other brilliant books! To make sure children have fun, Junior Librarians set out a game called Go Find a Book. In the game the children get a card each; the card says a category or a little description. Some of the descriptions are: a book that your favourite singer would like, a book written as a diary, a book that your best friend would like, a book that is very pink and lots of other descriptions. Once they have the card, they try and find the book that best matches to the card’s description. Their name is written down on a tiny piece of paper, folded up and put in the Go Find a Book Game Box. Then if they are lucky, their name gets pulled out of the box on a Friday assembly. If they do, they get to choose Mrs Feely’s special prize!   
 
 
Maths
 
Maths is so fun because you do different things like write on the whiteboard or answer maths questions in your maths book. For example, Partridge class do different things like column method for adding and subtraction. That is why maths is fun: because you learn different things every day.

 
 
PTA
 
The PTA are the people who organise events and help to pay for trips. The PTA organise the Christmas and summer fetes. The PTA have raised £35,000 in the last five years. PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association. 
 

Science

Science is so fun because you do lots of fun experiments, and did you know?  Partridge class made an incredible experiment!  Partridge class made a parachute experiment, which was incredible!  We tried to make our parachute with string, a bin bag, a cube and some tape.  Then we tried their aerodynamics to see which parachute flew slower.  Then a child was writing the score and the others were copying after him, but just when they finished their parachutes.
