Visit to Interserve

ALP Leicester visited  Interserve Construction Limited to see the ongoing devlopment of a school to discuss different job roles and see the work being carried out. They talked about careers, health & safety issues and different routes into construction. 

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.
