The children enjoyed learning maths with Professor Poopenschticken and friends!
Year 5 were recently welcomed by the Imam at our local Mosque in Boston. During their visit the children listened to a traditional song and learnt about the Five Pillars of Islam. The children found the visit extremely interesting and informative.
On Friday 1st March Year 2 went on a trip to Lincoln Castle.
We left school quite early so that we would have plenty of time at the castle for all the planned activities.
The children took part in various activities which included a medieval banquet, where they got dressed up in different outfits and were served wine (blackcurrant juice) by servants and entertained by minstrels and jesters. Knight training, where they fired bows and arrows and dressed up knights with armour, they then learned all about the different types of armour and how it changed throughout the years. They made shields out of cardboard then cut them out and decorated them. They also went on a medieval castle wall walk where they learned all about the different parts of a castle and also re-enacted the battle between King Louie of France and Sir William!
It was a long bumpy journey on the bus but the children and teachers had a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
Year 2 celebrated the end of another fantastic term with a WOW day. The children came dressed as kings, queens, knights and peasants and enjoyed a medieval style banquet for their lunch. During the afternoon year 2 displayed the castles and shields they had made to the rest of the school and later their parents and carers were invited in to look as well.
Well done year 2 you have produced excellent work!
As part of our topic ‘Blue Abyss’, Y4 went on a trip to Skegness Aquarium. It was a very educational day full of learning and new experiences. As part of the day, we learned all about the five layers of the ocean and which creatures live on each layer. We had a competition to see who could remember the facts, it was very competitive (not just for the children). We also drew our own fish that glowed in the dark then had to tell everyone what type of fish it is and which layer of the ocean it lives. We saw a huge range of different fish and sea creatures and even experienced feeding time in the large tank with a questions and answer time with the diver. A great day out was had by all and a wonderful educational experience to add to our learning at school.
A festive thank you to our year 6 team captains who led proceedings in our first Christmas concert to be held at the Centenary Church. From ‘donkeys plodding’ to ‘camels bumping’ it was a wonderful showcase for our children to wish parents and our wider community a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully, it will be the first of many new traditions for Park Academy. Well done to everyone.
We are feeling very festive today at Park Academy as it is our Christmas jumper and lunch day! The day started off with an exciting assembly where pupils had the chance to vote for the best Christmas jumper worn by staff. Children cheered loudly to vote for their favourite staff jumper. It took three rounds to find the winner as the competition was hard but in the end the children chose Mr Whiting!!There is a definite buzz of excitement around the school today and we are looking forward to what the day brings.
