Happy 60th Anniversary Redscope!

To celebrate Redscope School’s 60th anniversary the whole school dressed up in 50s clothes and took part in lots of fun activities.


One of the highlights of the day was the picnic on the school field. Luckily the weather stayed nice and we had time to play some classic 50s games.

Here are a few pictures from the day by Class 9.

Parental Involvement Morning

What a super morning!

Class 9 and 10 have been making instruments with a little help from our wonderful parents.

We tried hard to stick to our design ideas. We have made our instruments from all sorts of junk that we have laying around the house.

We will be using our instruments during our Junkyard Jam finale. More details will follow shortly…

Year 4 have been learning all about instructions.

In Tuesday’s lesson we followed lots of different instructions. We had to follow the instructions carefully to complete each activity. The children were particularly good at making origami cats as you can see from the pictures.

Here are some other instruction which the children had to follow.

IMGP1149 IMGP1152

In today’s lesson we have been following instructions on how to make speedy bird cakes. The children enjoyed getting their hands dirty and mixing up the ingredients. These bird cakes will attract robins, sparrows, starlings and blue tits.

Tomorrow the children will be writing their own instructions to tell other people how the speedy bird cakes are made.

Clumber Park

It is a new school year and the children have already been very busy learning about animals and their habitats.

Our focus text is Colly’s Barn which has been an excellent stimulus for learning. We will be learning much more about British birds in the coming weeks and look forward to sharing our learning on this blog.

On Monday 14th September, Year 4 visited Clumber Park. The children fully engaged in the visit and were praised by the staff at Clumber Park for their excellent behaviour. The children learnt a great deal while they were there and the visit was enjoyed by all.

Several pictures and video clips were taken during the visit but we are yet to receive permission from some parents to post them on this site. Could you please check that planners have been signed so that you can keep up to date with your child’s learning on this blog.

Thank you for reading.
