Park Lane Remembers
To commemorate Remembrance Sunday, 2 pupils from Park Lane school took part in the annual parade through the town. After observing a 2 minutes silence, the children solemnly laid a wreath on behalf of the school and then proudly bowed their heads as a sign of respect. At Park Lane School the children will remember them.
To mark Remembrance Day, pupils held a two minutes silence at 11:00 a.m. Children across the school have been making their own poppies to create a beautiful display in the front entrance of school. Alex in Year 5, also read out a beautiful poem in assembly that he had written in memory of his Great Great Uncle who died in Flanders Fields, Mr. Litten then asked all pupils to focus on a lighted candle to focus their thoughts of remembrance.
Year 5 Production 'Bully'
On Thursday and Friday of last week, parents and family members were astounded by the powerful portrayal of bullies in action in Park Lane's Year 5 production of 'Bully'.
The production was put together in 2 short weeks and all cast members acted and sang incredibly well, especially the main characters who had solo performances.
As this is anti-bullying week in school, the play has stimulated many thought provoking discussions around the effects of all forms of bullying.
Year 2 Street Detectives
Year 2 have had a very busy start to the new half term with their interesting topic of Street Detectives.
The children have been out and about in their little town learning all about the wonderful landmarks there are and the history behind them.
The trips have also helped the children with their geographical skills such as finding out about directions and routes.
We wonder what else the children are going to find out...watch this space
When we fall asleep ...
Reception children really enjoyed their police car and van visit on Wednesday.
As part of our topic, ‘What happens when I fall asleep?’, we looked at what the emergency services do at night time whilst we are sleeping. The children enjoyed sitting in the back of a police van, hearing the sirens and holding the baton.
The police officers even commented on how well reception behaved too!
Well done Badgers & Otters!
Park Lane School have managed to fill 2 posters of 300 stickers each for the chance of winning £20,000 for the school and receiving a sport pack for completion.
The children have had great fun in filling not 1 but 2!
Halloween Sponsored Walk!
The annual sponsored walk took place today, with a bit of a twist. All children came dressed up in Halloween costumes to complete the 20 laps.
We’d like to thank all the children and parents who walked, stumbled or zombie walked around the field to raise money for good causes across the school.
Year 5 Sparkly Starter
To launch their new topic entitled ' Star Gazers' all pupils in Year 5 were inspired to reach for the stars on their first day back after half term. Each student created their very own moonscape collage in a DT lesson in the morning as well as taking part in an interactive Science lesson in an inflatable Planetarium in the school hall during their afternoon lesson. Everyone in Year 5 agreed that this was the most amazing way to begin their journey into their new topic.
Year 1 Explore Space
To start our new topic 'Moon Zoom', the Foxes and Squirrels entered a fantastic planetarium that came to school. The children learnt all about the Sun and Moon and the astronauts that have visited the Moon and the International Space Station. The children then had a 'tour' of the stars at night inside the dome. The children lots of fun exploring the universe and also learnt lots of great facts!
We would like to say a big 'Thank you' to FOPLS who funded this visit for the Year 1 children.
