Children receive two P.E sessions a week that averages two hours a week. Our PE offer includes: tennis, athletics, cricket, archery, football, tag rugby, netball, basketball, dodgeball, gymnastics and dance.

As well as our well-equipped school hall, we have a large school field marked out in the winter with a football pitch and an athletics track and rounders pitch in the summer. There is also a netball court on the playground. The time allocated to sport varies according to the weather, the time of year and the age of the child. Year 4 children have swimming lessons at Hitchin Pool for one term to enable them to become confident swimmers and achieve the National Curriculum standard and beyond. Year 5 take part in outdoor pursuits, off site with trained staff, as part of the PE curriculum with activities such as: climbing, abseiling, archery and kayaking.

As a whole school, we hold a traditional athletics Sports Day, when all the children compete in house teams for the school trophy. Each class takes part in a daily mile run to promote physical health and wellbeing on our newly installed daily mile track, an all-weather circuit around the school field.

The children at Ickleford School are encouraged to be fit and active. Even from an early age their skills develop and are able to take part in a range of inter-class, outer-school sporting events and festivals. Netball and football skills are practised during lesson times but there are also after school clubs which form school teams. The school teams regularly play in rallies and matches with other local schools. We also offer a broad timetable of extracurricular clubs such as: multi-skills, active wall, tennis, cross country and dance.

SCHOOL COUNCIL

 

DUE TO COVID SCHOOL COUNCILLORS WERE NOT APPOINTED THIS YEAR.  SCHOOL COUNCIL ELECTIONS WILL RESUME IN AUTUMN 2022

The Ickleford School Council is elected at the beginning of each year with one girl and one boy representative from each class. The children self-nominate and are required to stand up in front of their class and state why they would like to be a school councillor. The children then vote for their councillors following a democratic process.

The new school council is:

Year 2                

Year 3                 

Year 4                    

Year 5                       

Year 6           

Special Council Representatives for Reception and Year One    

 

As you know the School Council is elected by you, for you. Every class in school is represented by our wonderful school councillors and they take great care in listening to your ideas. They pride themselves on working hard in all they do and are determined to do their best for you.

Recent news

Our aim for this part of the school website is to keep you informed of the activities the School Council and the councillors are involved with and to let you know about our future plans and ideas.

We are here to help.

As always we are busy trying to help make our school even better. We listen to your views & opinions and look for ways of putting them into action. Our regular meetings, class discussions and idea slips are just a few of the ways we listen to your pupil voice.

What is happening? See the SCQ newsletter

Our School Council newspaper the SQC details the most recent news & events and includes what we hope are some interesting facts and fun features. Attached here is the most recent edition.

What are we doing for you at the moment?

        Library fundraising

We are currently trying to raise £300 to support the modernisation of the school library. So far our Christmas raffle has raised a large amount. We now are planning to hold a ‘table top tombola’ in the near future to add to the growing total.

      Meeting with the school Kitchen staff to talk about our lunches. We are planning to meet with our hard working school cook to talk about the meals her team provide for us everyday. 

      Using Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers to buy equipment for Golden Time activities.

      SCQ newsletter.  We are busy working on the new edition of the SCQ. We are planning to interview another special person linked to the school and also create some fun quizzes to keep your brains buzzing.

 

Could you be a school councillor?

 

 

 

The Ickleford School Council is run according to these principles - we value what the children say and listen to their ideas.

 

 

 

We are proud to offer a rich art environment for all our children in school, in which all creativity is encouraged and valued. All children experience a wide range of activities to develop their imagination; explore different techniques including: drawing, painting and modelling/sculpture and skills exploring: colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. Our scheme of work is designed to introduce the children to a diverse range of renowned artists and designers from history, different cultures and from art in the natural environment around them. Teaching encompasses whole class teaching, group collaborative activities and individual tasks. KS2 develop sketchbooks to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas.

Here are a few examples of the art produced by the children this year.

Design and Technology

The aims of DT are:

* to develop imaginative thinking in children and to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making;

* to enable children to talk about how things work and to draw and model their ideas;

* to encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, including the preparation of food, whilst following safe procedures;

* to explore attitudes towards the made-world and how we live and work within it;

* to develop an understanding of technological processes, products and their manufacture along with their contribution to our society; and

* to foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making.

Throughout the key stages, children revisit building strong and stable structures; explore and use simple mechanisms; develop textile and sewing techniques; along with being introduced to using simple electronic systems and computer control in their products at the end of KS2. A local STEM workshop team visit regularly to engage KS2 children in the design and build of structures using Knex, which in the past have included: bridges, cranes and vehicles all to achieve a specific design brief.

Each year group explores an aspect of food technology. As part of their work with food, pupils are taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Each topic always culminates in an evaluative tasting session.
