Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy

Whole School

This year we entered a competition where the children were tasked with the challenge of researching, designing and creating a miniature ‘Show’ garden with a key emphasis on reusing plastics.
In the UK an estimated 5.5 billion plastic bottles, 4.1 billion cups and 4.7 billion straws are disposed of each year. Half of all plastics are single-use applications. These figures highlight global concerns and worries about micro-plastics in our food chain.
The children needed to design and create a miniature garden that utilises plastics for alternative uses, which could have included: for planting, water sprinklers, wildlife feeders, habitats and art work. Students should research the current issues to help form and plan their sustainable design.
There was credit given to gardens that utilise plastics creatively and also those that thought about planting to support the environment and wildlife. The designs needed to consider the space limitations by being innovative with height and decoration around the recycled plastic planter.

 

Our Grow and Reuse Garden!

We took ideas for our garden from all around our environment, from displays in school, projects completed during lockdown to our current learning in class!

Sports Day 2021

 

This year we tried a new style of sports day and it was SO MUCH FUN! 

We worked with coaches from Elite Sports and took part in a wide range of activities including traditional sports day races such as sprints, relay, egg and spoon and sack races. We also enjoyed taking part in the new activities, inflatable darts and trying to score in the inflatable target practice. 

 

Have a look at the pictures below to see and share all of the fun that we had! 

 

Cricket Development Day 

 

Today we all took part in a cricket development day run by Lincolnshire Cricket and Chance to Shine as part of All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket. 

 

We had a brilliant time learning about batting and bowling and playing lots of cricket mini games with Justin! You can see some of the pictures from the day below. 

Snowman building - Snow Day 3

Online Safety Week

Snow Day!

 

We were so excited that it snowed! We loved crunching about it in, sliding and throwing it around.

End of Autumn Term 2

 

what an amazing day of celebrations we had at the end of term. We enjoyed a Christmas Lunch all together with our bubbles and a visit from Santa with presents for everyone!

 

Have a look at our amazing day below!

Odd Socks day

 

As Anti-Bullying week came to an end, we celebrated odd socks day to raise awareness and to show that we are all different but all belong. 

Children in Need and World Kindness Day

X-Country 

 

We took part in Boston School Sports Partnership' 1 mile X-Country event and we won the Gold Award! Every class took part in the event running 1 mile around our school field. 

Well done everyone! 

Anti Bullying with Boston United

 

Today we had an assembly on Teams with Holly and Cooky from Boston United. They talked to us about what bullying is, the different types of bullying, how they don't accept bullying within sport and how to deal with it if it is happening to us or someone we know. 

 

Have a look at the PowerPoint and pictures below!

End of term Collective Worship

 

We've missed our collective praise, so for a special end of term treat, we finally all got together for a socially distanced sing of our favourite worship songs to shine our lights for our community to hear. 

X-Country

 

This week every class has been taking part in Boston School Sports Programme’s mile cross country event. We had a course marked out around the school field and had to show determination and unity to help us complete the 5 laps. Well done to everyone who took part and help the St Nicholas light to shine brightly during the event!

Harvest Festival

We celebrated our Harvest Festival in school. Father John led our Collective Worship and, thanks to lots of very generous donations, all classes were able to try lots of local Lincolnshire produce!
