STA Farmer’s Market

Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1: What was inside those boxes?

We had moments of wonder and discovery with Juilliard, we learnt that vegetables don’t grow ready in plastic with the STA Farmers’ market, there was a well-attended phonics and reading session in Year 1 and its Anti-Bullying week. 

Juilliard Collaboration

Last week saw the latest collaboration between St Andrews and The Juilliard School in New York.

Normally at this time of year we have visits planned from our link advisors for Dance, Music and Drama and look forward to the workshops and training provided. This year with the limitations around travel, there might have been some challenges to this process, but working virtually allowed us to successfully share some of the work we have been doing with our colleagues from Julliard.

Ms Pepa explains more about the work they have been doing in FS3.

As part of a school-wide role out of the new Juilliard Drama curriculum, FS3 have begun following a series of new lessons, specifically designed for the year group.

This term we are looking at how we use our facial expressions and our movements, to share a moment of wonder and discovery. Using the sentence stem ‘I wonder…’ groups explored how they would feel if they were to discover three unknown boxes.

Later came our moment of discovery! FS3 used their facial expressions to lead their friends through a moment of discovery. I bet you can never guess at home, what was inside the boxes! Was it something exciting? Was it something interesting? Delicious? Smelly? Scary?

Analysing our friends' reactions, helped us understand feelings and self-expression. Students later related their moment of discovery to a key piece of dramatic work, set by Juilliard, that concluded the lesson objective. Feedback from the session was all positive, and the next group can’t wait to have a go!

STA Farmer’s Market with Happy Grocers

Parents and Teachers had the chance to purchase some fresh produce on Friday as The Happy Grocer van opened its doors at the Primary School. With fruit, vegetables and freshly baked bread on sale as well as pre-ordered milk and meat. There was quite a queue forming as the van opened for business.

We are hoping to welcome them back each week so that we can make this a regular one-stop-shop before the weekend, supporting our local farmers and cutting down on plastic waste.

A great lesson for the children as they learn that vegetables don’t grow ready wrapped in plastic.

Year 1 Phonics Meeting

On Tuesday the Year 1 team held a well-attended workshop for parents about Phonics and Reading.

As Ms Emma explains,

It was a fun, interactive session with lots of practical, hands on hints and tips for how to help your child learn to read. One of the key points to take from the presentation is that all children progress at different rates and it is the love of reading that we want to promote. So let your child see you read, read signs, labels and posters, read menus, recipes and instructions! As Dr Seuss says, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Upcoming Events

Anti Bullying Week 16th-20th November

Anti-Bullying Week got off to a great start with our non-uniform day at the Primary campus. It was a colourful start to the day as everyone did their part to raise awareness of the importance of anti-bullying by wearing bright clothes and odd socks. T=With the money raised, the School Council is hoping to purchase a range of equipment to encourage joining-in and group play for this. Foundation Stage will be raising money to purchase a ‘Friendship Bench’ for their area.
