Good news alert!! 

Luna and Willow decided (themselves!!!) to design, make and sell bracelets to their family and friends ๐Ÿงก 

This wonderfully kind initiative was to raise funds for Mini Vinnies ๐Ÿ™Œ 

They raised an astounding £42.44 from their sale, which is absolutely fantastic!!!! Mini Vinnies will use this generous donation to purchase toiletry bags for the homeless 

Thank you Luna and Willow โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Imagine That!, by Miss Ward

Date: 3rd May 2024 @ 8:48am

Year 2 enjoyed a fabulous trip to Imagine That! Science and Discovery Centre in Liverpool. We explored 5 different zones throughout the course of the day. 

We started off the day in workshops making magic snow and slime. We then enjoyed watching a science show with lots of different experiments and chemical reactions!

After that, we played in the Science Zone. We played in water, a light room, explored magnets, made giant bubbles and so much more!

Then, we headed to the Outdoor Dino Dig Zone where we had a play outside in the sand pits finding fossils and playing on the equipment.

We also spent some time in the Art Beatz Zone where we made delightful music on the music wall, produced 3D pin art, painted magnets and even painted a car!

We finally headed to the last Zone which was the Imagination Village. The children enjoyed dressing up and being whoever they wanted to be; vets, builders, fire fighters, performers, shop keepers and chefs!

We had an amazing time and couldn't wait to write a recount of our adventures when we got back to school. Thank you to all our parent helpers we hope you had as much fun as we did!

Unidentified object in the playground, by Miss Ward

Date: 7th Mar 2024 @ 5:23pm

The infant playground was awash with excitement and amazement on Monday morning. Year 2 discovered a pile of broken bits, nuts, bolts and wires scattered around the playground. We coned and taped everything off safely and investigated what it could be. The children thought it could have been a rocket or spaceship that had landed. Keep an eye out for updates coming soon.

Y2LW Hi-Impact Lego Workshop, by Miss Ward

Date: 12th Feb 2024 @ 5:20pm

Y2LW have had a brilliant morning in our computing workshop with Hi-Impact. The children explored Lego that linked to an iPad. The children worked in pairs to follow instructions to make a Lego windmill that moved when programmed with the correct algorithm. After some exploration, the children then used these building skills to make a Lego car with a sensor. The children then programmed the car to stop and start when they held up a colour to the car's sensor. Each child had the opportunity to participate in building and programming the Lego. What an amazing morning for all!

Y2 Enterprise Day 2024, by Miss Ward

Date: 11th Feb 2024 @ 9:33am

Year 2 chose to sell playdoh and gloop for Enterprise Day. We spent some time deciding on colours and prices as a year group. We made over 150 pots and bags of playdoh and gloop for the whole school to purchase. Some were pink, blue, orange, green and some ever contained glitter! The children worked hard making, packaging and advertising our products to sell. We set up our stall in the hall with our brightly coloured table decorations. Each child had a go at making, advertising or selling our playdoh and gloop, the whole school loved it! Well done Year 2!

Enterprise Day 2024 - how we spent our hard earned profit ๐Ÿ“ˆ, by Mrs Harris

Date: 10th Feb 2024 @ 6:58pm

Year 3 raised a total of £43.75 during our enterprise afternoon! The children decided to buy books and stationery. Each class now has a set of 8 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books and a stacking pencil each. 

From planning to making, advertising to selling, the children had a great time building their enterprise skills, which I'm sure will help them in the future.

Thank you to all the children in OLSE for supporting Year 3!


Enterprise Day Marketing Videos and Posters, by Mrs Harris

Date: 1st Feb 2024 @ 9:46pm

The children had a wonderful time during the preparation for Enterprise Day 2024!

Their entrepreneurial skills were certainly put to the test and they all did so well.

Modern life means our young people need to be resilient, innovative and not afraid to experiment - all important for entrepreneurs.  

We are using Enterprise Day to develop a range of skills in our pupils. These skills include:- team work, financial literacy, organising and planning, using initiative, negotiation, taking risks, creativity and innovation.

A key part of enterprise is the making of goods, followed by the marketing and selling of these goods. 

Take a look at our presentation / marketing videos and see what you like the look of ๐Ÿ˜Š
