European Day of Languages - September 2017
To celebrate this annual event, our Year 6 pupils were invited to take part in a morning of language activities, run by pupils and staff at Sir John Leman High School.
‘On Tuesday 26th September, Year 6 went to visit the Sir John Leman High School as it was the European Day of Languages. We had some exciting tasks to do which were decorating cakes like the European flags and making badges that say your name in different languages. We only stayed a couple of hours but we all enjoyed this exciting event. Everyone has learnt a few words in different languages like Polish, Turkish and even emoji language!’

‘On Tuesday 26th September we went to SJLHS to do some fun activities, as it was the European day of Languages. Some of the activities were: dressing up, icing cakes to represent flags, learning lots of different languages and different ways to communicate. One of the different languages was emojis! What they meant was that different emojis explained different places. For example, if you had kangaroos, koalas and deserts it would mean something like Australia because you would mainly find those three things in that environment. Next, they had pictures and you had to match the flags with the correct country that was written on a piece of paper. It was a competition to see which team won!’

All proceeds from the Cake Sale will be used to help finance our Summer Term educational visit.
As Year 6 pupils have been studying ‘The Tudors’, a trip to Kentwell Hall has been arranged for Tuesday 27th June. We are looking forward to dressing up as Tudors and experiencing how people lived in Suffolk in the 1500s.
Grateful thanks go to all the families who supported our first fundraising event by baking and/or buying cakes.
Healthy Hearts at Albert Pye School - October 2016
This week, as part of the Science curriculum, Year 6 pupils worked with a paramedic to find out more about the human heart. As well as giving a talk on the positive effect of exercise and diet on the heart, the paramedics explained about the electrical impulses which are needed to make the heart work.
There was great excitement in the classroom when the Electrocardiagram (ECG) machine was switched on! Every pupil had the opportunity to be connected to the ECG machine and to receive a printout showing their pulse rate, blood pressure and heart activity.
Grateful thanks go to the NHS Paramedics, Mr Martin Grove and Mr Dave Ellard, for sharing their expertise and for patiently answering questions about the job of a paramedic.
