Royal Institution Science Day

We were lucky enough to host a fabulous science day led by the Royal Institute of Science. This involved: an explosive food show for  Reception and KS1 and a rocket science community show for KS2  along with  families and other members of our Community. The children and adults were blown away (literally) by the demos and we all had a brilliant time while learning some new science concepts. Don't forget to check out the Christmas lectures on BBC I player to see more fascinating science.

We explored the senses by tasting new things, and saw  how digestion works with a very disgusting demonstration. We also tested the force of friction and tried out some very cool explosions using flour and bubbles!

Year 6 Trip to Phillips 66

Today we had a brilliant visit to Phillps 66. We had a tour of the safety induction centre and VR cave, did some team building with a STEM activity and had a presentation about Humber & Decarbonisation, before having our lunch in the canteen.  Gracie said she really enjoyed it and the best part was identifying the hazards in the VR room. Jacob enjoyed being in the meeting room, learning about decarbonisation and the Gigastack project. He said he would like to work here in the future. Rebecca and Louis thought the team building was really fun, building a tool box. Anthony said he liked how the staff made learning about safety interesting. Thank you Phillps 66!

Humberside Police Visit- June 2023

We have recently had a visit from Humberside Police and what an experience it was! Our students had the opportunity to look around one of the police vehicles, try on some handcuffs and even check their running speeds with a speedometer! It's super important that we all stay safe when out in the community and P.C Richard Kirk was on hand to offer some great advice on how to do so! We're really proud of our students' respect, thirst for knowledge and we are thankful for the relationships Humberside Police continue to sustain with our students, which in turn supports the continued development of positive communities! Head over to our pupil voice page to see what the children thought about the visit!

Climate Change Workshop

Today year 5 and 6 had a Climate Change workshop. First we thought about our local area and ranked Killingholme on criteria that were important to us such as transport and places to play. Then we considered how could improve the area by adding wildlife areas, transport links and places for renewable energy. We added these to large maps of the area. Our local council rep will hopefully take note of these ideas for change in our local area.  The children presented their ideas well to the class and enjoyed the workshop. 

Y1 School Trip to Cleethorpes Beach

Our School trip this Summer term was to Cleethorpes Beach. In History, we have been looking at seaside holidays from the past and what brought people to the seaside. People used to visit the beach after being instructed by their doctor, to make them better. We found out that women used to use bathing machines and everybody wore long-sleeved clothes and trousers, no matter the weather. Today we visited and saw the difference from then to now. We had fish and chips, ice-cream, candy-floss and built sandcastles, we even found a crab! Thank you to all adults who came on the trip and made it a great success! 

Killingholme's Art Exhibition

Thank you to those who came to view our Art Exibition on Wednesday. Our students have been working so hard to produce incredible pieces of Artwork, inspired by their Artist's of the term, we are so very proud of how they turned out. The exibition was a great success!

The King's Coronation

The rain didn't stop us having a good time!

We threw a party to celebrate the coronation of King Charles and the community came in to join us! 
Thank you to all the helping hands, both staff, parents and carers. 

Alice in Wonderland 

On Friday 28th April, we welcomed a Theatre Company into school to perform the classic tale, Alice in Wonderland. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and joined in with the performance.

All children enjoyed their 'End of Term Experience' on Thursday. They handled snakes, guinea pigs and even a millipede!

Easter Service at St Denys Church

Today we visited St Denys Church in North Killingholme for an Easter service. We had a wonderful time and learnt all about Palm Sunday, The Last Supper, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We sang hymns to celebrate along side of this. Thank you so much to Reverend Pat & the Ladies at St Denys Church for welcoming us.

Easter Fayre

Thank you to all who came to the Easter Fayre and supported raising money for the school.

Science Week

Today, we had a range of science activities that we had fun with at lunch time to celebrate National Science Week. We were forensic scientists, bug hunters and investigated forces with paper helicopters. The year 5 children led the activities really well and supported the younger children. We hope to do this again soon!

Wild About Wildflowers!

Wildflowers are in important food source to pollinators such as bees and insects. North
Lincolnshire’s Mortal Ash Wildflower Meadow has many wildflowers growing within it and has been
recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) as the overall winner for meadow creation,
awarding Scunthorpe a Silver Gilt for its work around environment, horticulture and commitment to green spaces.

In honour of this great achievement North Lincolnshire Council’s Culture and Creative Partnerships Team invited our school to take part in an exciting, upcoming exhibition called Wild about Wildflowers.

All classes from Reception to Year 6 had a great time participating in the workshop delivered by the 20:21 learning assistants. We learnt all about the different Wild flowers that grow followed by the the opportunity to make our own wild flowers from scrap paper! Look out for our work at the upcoming exibition.

We'd like to thank Georgie for coming all the way to our school, we had a great time!
