Life Skills

We were very lucky to have medical students from Leicester University come in and talk to us about healthy eating. They taught us how to look for sugar levels in drinks and yogurts, and brought healthy snacks for us to try as an alternative.

This afternoon, we were lucky to be visited by Sara from Amnesty International. She told us about the work which Amnesty does and explained why they are so important. We spent the afternoon learning about human rights with a focus on the rights of us - children!

This afternoon, we were visited by Lee and Amy from Leicester Council. They worked with us to discuss sustainability and the current climate emergency that Leicester City have launched.

After our busy day, we presented Maureen and David with our contribution to their wonderful charity. Thank you to all who donated.

Today we were visited by David and Maureen from the Canal and River Trust. They taught us how canals and rivers were historically used as forms of transport for both people and goods. We also investigated different bridge structures, and found out that an arch bridge was the strongest. Finally, we learnt how locks work and made our own cardboard narrow boats. What a busy day!

On Friday 20th January 2020, we had a visit from Steve from St John's Ambulance. He taught us about what to do if someone is choking. We also learnt how to put a bandage on correctly to help someone if they have a head or arm injury.

On Friday 15th November 2019, we had a visit from Holly and Heidi from Natwest. Together we solved the mystery of Mia's fraud. We discovered that in order to keep our money safe there are lots things we should do- including never sharing personal information, checking our bank statements and assessing whether something is too good to be true!!

This afternoon, Year 5 were lucky enough to be visited by Steve from the Guide Dogs, Ruth Mays MBE and her working guide dog Ally. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to understand the perspective of a visually impaired person and learn about the fantastic work that the Guide Dogs do. Our school council took great pleasure in giving Guide Dogs a donation of £100 as part of the visit.
