Sound Journey to School

We have recently been using our new studio equipment and have recently made this sound clip. it was so much fun to make and I think every member of primary in someway or another was involved with this.

No Pens Wednesday

Last week, ALP Leicester had a really successful ‘No Pens Wednesday’.  

No Pens Day Wednesday encourages schools and settings to put down their pens and to run a day of speaking and listening activities. At ALP Leicester, we did just that on Wednesday 13th October.  Staff and pupils enjoyed a day of activities – all without a single pen or pencil in sight! In primary, to link with their thematic learning topic of ‘From A to B’, pupils worked in teams to help navigate a blindfolded person around a maze which had been set up in the hall. 
In Secondary, pupils took part in various activities, including a giant game of snakes and ladders to support their learning in maths.  Staff really stepped up to the challenge of planning a whole day of ‘no pens’ activities whilst pupils enjoyed the different activities planned for them.
