We had a wonderful day celebrating the coronation of King Charles III. We enjoyed many activities including making crowns, creating artwork based on a royal theme, looking at artefacts, singing a coronation song in assembly, competing in a royal quiz and enjoying lunch outside!
The children learnt lots in this club with Dr Bals. For example, how to listen to their heart beat, what a blood capillary is and how germs can be spread so quickly. The activities were practical and this meant that the children were very engaged, involved and excited about their learning. They learnt about what to do in an emergency and about the importance of Mental Health.
Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan
School pupils, staff and the school community had an amazing time at the procession.
Year 2 trip to the synagogue
Year 2 had a great time at the synagogue In Leicester and learnt lots. They looked at different artefacts and learned lots about the history of Judaism. They were so well behaved and asked some super questions.
Panjabi classes take place after school led by staff Mrs Ram and Mrs Khalsa, currently we have 62 children attending. The children are grouped according to ability and we award certificates as they meet the requirements of each Level (Falcons Primary School Panjabi Curriculum Map). Children learn about introducing themselves, saying a range of greetings, reading and writing Gurmukhi letters, counting , recognising maharani (symbols) and also reading and writing words and sentences in Panjabi.
Our amazing Digital Accelerators worked so hard to plan and prepare an assembly about Online Safety. They advised children about what to do if they need to report a problem, discussed our SMART rules and gave guidance on recommended screen time and age restrictions for apps. At the end was a quiz which the children loved participating in. Here is a link to the Powerpoint they made and some photos of the assembly.
The Digital Accelerators have been working together to make a PowerPoint about E-Safety which they are going to show in assembly. They have been busy interviewing children, making posters, looking at websites which are useful for E-Safety and much more!

To commemorate Remembrance Day, we decided to host an in-school art gallery. Each year group produced their own art work focussing on different skills ranging from drawing to textures. We then showcased the children’s artistic talents to the school!
Celebrating Guru Nanaks Gurpurab
During the day, children had lots of fun taking part in various activities to celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birthday including making cards, making simran malas, taking part in a Dastaar tying workshop and many other exciting activities.
Children in Year 2 and Reception worked together to perform The Nativity to parents and the rest of the school. We were very proud of them. They did especially well learning the different songs.
