Earlier this year we entered the Royal Mail stamp competition, we each designed a stamp with our lockdown hero on it. It was the largest stamp design competition in the world so has gained a world record title! Here we are with our certificates.
The Eco-Warriors have been up to our school allotment to look at the year's produce. There was a lot of sweetcorn and raspberries!
Woburn Open Gardens
On the 20th June Woburn Lower School opened up its school hall & its allotment to the public. The children had made scarecrows for the Woburn Open Gardens, and three local artists had set up their exhibition in the school hall.
Last week we were busy at school writing some ‘thank yous’ to the amazing NHS staff at Milton Keynes University Hospital. The pictures were displayed where the staff put on their PPE just before they go into ICU. The children really enjoyed making them, and we hope that this brought a little bit of joy to the hardworking staff.
Art Beat - Community Art Project
Working with Bedford Street Art Gallery.
The children had a fantastic day in the Abbey Gardens exploring texture. We look forward to working together on future projects.
The children in Badgers Class made and sent cards to Devon Lodge retirement home in Woburn Sands as they were thinking about how lonely the residents must be during the pandemic. The cards all looked beautiful and the children thought the cards would bring the residents some joy and make them smile.
Dragons Den Project
Working with Kate from Matilda Bay and Bob from Handelsbanken.
The Dragons report is as follows;
The year 3 and 4 children at Woburn Lower School have been taking part in a Dragons Den topic which involved putting together a business plan to sell different christmas products and presenting it to investors, one of whom was Bob Howe. During the presentations each group set out details about their products, the costs, pricing and potential profits and their marketing strategies. Two project groups were delighted when Bob agreed to invest half the cost of their raw materials in exchange for half of the profits and they took on board his advice about pricing and aspects to include in their marketing. Bob was impressed with the quality of the presentations and business plans, especially as the children involved are aged between 7 and 9 years old.
The products will go on sale next week in the school hall to children and their parents and the project groups have promised to keep Bob informed about the progress of sales and the likely return on his investment.
