Year 5 Viking Workshop

Year 5 Viking Workshop
Today in Year 5, we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon learning all about Viking invasion and settlement in Anglo-Saxon Britain. We were able to try some traditional Viking foods, such as buttered turnip and honey flapjacks, handle some replica artefacts and watch a re-enactment of combat. Most of all, we enjoyed handling the shields, axes and swords (all blunt, of course)! A huge thank you from all of us to Tom and Ash for giving up their time to share their enthusiasm about this period of history with us.

Year 5 Synagogue Visit

Year 5 Synagogue Visit
Today, the children in Year 5 visited Welwyn Garden Hebrew Congregation. We enjoyed looking at symbols associated with Judaism, exploring the stained-glass windows and finding out their meaning and viewing a real Torah Scroll . The lovely volunteers gave us prayer shawls and hats to try on, as well as teaching us some Hebrew, setting up a Shabbat (Sabbath) meal for us to re-enact and giving us grape juice and Challah bread to taste. As always, the children represented Ickleford Primary School impeccably, showing respect and interest in learning about Judaism.

Year 3 Visit Luton Central Mosque

Year 3 Visit Luton Central Mosque
Today, the children in Year 3 visited Luton Central Mosque. We enjoyed exploring the prayer mats, looking at the Arabic calligraphy and experiencing the great dome from the inside and outside. We learnt a lot about how Muslims pray, when they gather in the Mosque and how the Five Pillars of Islam guide their lives. We were also interested to hear about lots of similarities between stories in the Bible and those in the Qur'an, and we found out that there are many shared beliefs and Prophets between both Islam and Christianity.

Values Bunting

Values Bunting
Well done to Phoebe and Harry (Year 3) and Michelle (Year 4) for showing a wonderfully patient attitude in lessons, therefore being the first to achieve bunting for our new value of ‘Patience.’

It was also wonderful to see Poppy and Phoebe (Year 6) being nominated for silver bunting for showing great understanding to a friend in need.

I look forward to much more bunting to come over the month!

Values Bunting - Peace

IMG 0749IMG 0750


Following our Remembrance Service last Friday, many children have been reflecting on the meaning of ‘peace’ and thinking about how to create a peaceful atmosphere in school. A huge amount of children received bunting to recognise their exceptional effort at maintaining this month’s value of peace. What a pleasure to award so much bunting, which is now hung around the Values display in the library. Well done to all!
