Year 5 ISG Careers in Construction Workshop
Year 5 had an amazing time in Cardfields! We enjoyed BMXing, climbing wall, looking after the chickens, orienteering and lots of other fun activities!
For World Book Day this year, lot's of the children and adults dressed as characters from their favourite books. Our theme this year was 'Alice in Wonderland', to celebrate the books 150th anniversary. There were so many great costumes. Well done to everyone for making such a great effort.
E-Safety Week and Safer Internet Day at St Luke's
Our children had a fabulous E-Safety week with lots of interesting activities. We had assemblies about keeping ourselves safe online and discussions in class about how to keep safe and happy whilst using the internet. Our Bee Safe bumble bee mascot featured in the KS1 Strictly Come Bee Bot dancing competition! Y4 Blogged e-safety poetry and the rest of the school were busy programming their very own E-Safety games using Scratch. The children showcased their work at our E-Safety Coffee morning for parents on Safer Internet Day.
John Walters is a Pearly King and used to attend St Luke's as a child. He came to do a Dreamcatcher assembly with the children, who were very impressed with his pearly suit. The children were able to ask him lots of questions about his life as a little boy living in the area and going to school. Here are a couple of those questions:
Emily (Y3): “Why have you got buttons on your clothes?”
“Our founder (Henry Croft) was only 13 when he set up the Pearly Kings. Costermongers back then, the people who sold fruit and vegetables, used to have a line of 7 buttons on their trousers. Henry was an orphan boy and a street sweeper; he started collecting lost buttons. Then he started collecting for charity, with shiny buttons all over his clothes.”
Jawad (Y6): “How was it when you went to this school?”
“I loved St Luke’s School. When I went it was in Old Street. Mr James was headmaster. If I was naughty I used to get punished with a slipper or a cane. But I learnt from my mistakes: St Luke’s taught me right from wrong. You have to listen to your teachers and your parents.”
