IMG 3909If you've spent any time in Blue Coat classrooms then you might have seen our 'Learning Walls'. Unlike some of the more visually polished displays around the school, these wall displays are intended to be adhoc and transient so as to support current learning for the children by the inclusion of learning prompts, resources, key questions/symbols/images/vocabulary, references to previous learning and lots more things that the teachers and pupils dream up to support learning in class.

I did a quick camera tour to show you what learning is taking place in classes throughout the school...

star3 weeks in and already teachers are finding it difficult to choose just one Star Achiever - some have chosen several this week. Well done to all of our Star Achievers for the behaviours, attitudes, and skills that enable you to be fantastic learners and responsible citizens of our school!

tn-screen-captureThose of you who haven't seen the website's Hall of Fame, or are lucky to get so much as a muffled grunt when you ask the question "How was school today?", might not know what we're talking about when it comes to Blue Coat's Star Achievers. Let us clarify things...

Today, Cam Hopton Primary School kindly invited Blue Coat Pupils to a Year 6 Debate competition centred on the topical issue of 'Is Technology Bad for You?'

As Year 6 enjoy the fruits that Morfa Bay has to offer, we asked for some flexibility when considering whether a selection of our articulate Year 5's could represent the school. Thankfully Leo, Anna and Emily were able to step up to the podium today, rubbing shoulders with some heavyweight Year 6 counterparts who are currently in their 'sunset days' of primary school.

Many parents made their way into school before half-term to peruse the class museums we set up of each decade of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee reign of 60 years. The children researched and created a number of artefacts and artworks in finding out about the decade before presenting their findings to parents and pupils across the school.

Dear Mums and Dads...

We're all very proud of the Blue Coat class blogs. The effort and creativity that our children put into posting on them has brought them to life ever since teachers have worked hard to bring them into the fore of homework and literacy, in particular.

So, it made me especially proud to have been contacted by David Smith - a presenter for BBC Gloucestershire Radio. He has been running a feature programme on blogging and looking at their versatility and uses within the Gloucestershire region. Through use of Google search engines he embarked upon the school's website - high praise indeed when considering the number of people who are blogging these days!

Last Friday, the hall filled with Olympic teams representing nations from each continent. Why? It was Blue Coat's very own Olympic Opening Ceremony!

Each class presented a short cultural display from their country to give us all a flavour of the participant nations in the Blue Coat Olympics. We had hat dancing to hakas; sports displays to oriental dragons! The atmosphere was electric and it was amazing to see such variety and creativity in how each country had chosen to represent itself before its competitors.

As some of the Key Stage 1 parents might've heard from their children, and even spotted in the playground last week, we had an artist (Steve Porter) who came in and worked with all of our children from Reception to Year 2. The project? Well, we felt our school hall could do with brightening up a bit and we felt that children from Key Stage 1 and the Early Years would be up for a challenge! As the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is fast approaching we thought it would present a perfect opportunity for our youngest learners to produce a real legacy piece which outlines the 6 decades of the Queen's reign.
