Enterprise Day 2024 - how we spent our hard earned profit πŸ“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 😊

F2M - Our World and the Creation Story, by Mrs Harris

Date: 25th Sep 2023 @ 8:28pm

This week Mrs McLaren’s F2 class have been thinking about Our World and the Creation story. We created a prayer focus together, lighting our candle and singing our song 'I can pray'.

We also learnt our new song, 'My God is so Big'. 

We really enjoyed going on a nature walk around our playground. Whilst we did this we thought about things that God created for us. 

We then brought back a leaf and spoke about each leaf being unique, just like us. 

The children have also been working hard on their drawing skills. They made rainbows out of different coloured resources, and faces using loose parts play. We have had lots of fun and we are working hard each day. 

Keep up the good work F2 ? ? ?

F2 - Mental Health Awareness Week, by Mrs Harris

Date: 20th May 2023 @ 9:34pm

This week is 'Mental Health Awareness Week'. In F2 we have been learning about the different emotions we can feel, what might make us feel these emotions and how it's important to talk about these feelings. 

We spoke about what we could do to make ourselves and others happy. The children had some excellent ideas! They said we should...

-Always use kind words

-Ask our friends if they're ok 

-Ask others to play a game 

-Talk to our grownups if something is upsetting us  

The children then made hands with the names of 5 people they could talk to if they ever feel sad or worried. They also drew a picture to show how they were feeling today. 

"If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours." ? ??
