Tomorrow, we were going to join other schools at the Stephen Prescott sports centre for a the sport relief Run a Mile event. Owing to the extremely cold weather that is forecast, the organisers have now cancelled this. Instead, we are telling pupils that they can pay 50p and come to school in warm sportswear. We will thereby still be raising money for this worthwhile charity.
Our British Values theme for this half term is 'Democracy', which is one of the fundamentals of living in our country and a bedrock of British Society. Fair Representation is one of the key features of the electoral process in a democratic society.
Year 5 wowed us with more working models of volcanoes; model balloon-powered hovercraft; a body cell map made from fruit; robots; glow torches and cameras. All of these projects had been made at home as part of science week.
We had some really good science projects from our year 3 pupils. In today's celebratory assembly they showed us the projects that they had done at home. These included: a poster about the dangers of smoking; models of the solar system; fact files; a lava lamp and a working volcano!
We have had parents in this morning to join our Nursery and Reception classes for a special 'Sports Relief' morning in the school hall. Different activities were led by Mr Grindley, much to the enjoyment of everyone.

Father Phil lead a brilliant Easter Service at St. Mary's Church, Sculcoates this morning. He was ably assisted by fourteen year 5 pupils, who read out the Easter story. It was wonderful to have our third church service of the year. In the past, we have only had Christmas services, but with the arrival of Father Phil, we've celebrated Remembrance, Christmas and Easter so far. It's certainly a great place to be.
A group of our year 5 pupils a joined members of St. Vincent's Primary School to plant two oak trees in Pearson Park. They even received a letter of thanks from the great, great, granddaughter of Zachariah Pearson.

Mrs Paish's husband, who is an engineer, came into school with a colleague today to deliver a brilliant workshop on cranes with year 5. Everyone worked well in their teams to construct model cranes and to learn all about the science behind how they work. It was another great part of our science week.
Our two IPC pupils, Maryam and Cara, donned blue clothes today alongside pupils from other schools in Hull. This was part of their Water Aid project and to get in practice for World Water Day next week. IPC members looked at filtering water and producing posters promoting water conservation. It was a really useful meeting at Longhill Primary School. IPC members in Freetown, Sierra Leone will be doing similar work.
