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.

A visit from Employability UK

Congratulations go to James Shortland won the Star Student of the day.

ALP Leicester Hits the Top Notes

During Autumn term 2018, we were lucky enough to be be able to take some of our Primary and Secondary Learners to a local recording studio in Melton.

The trip gave learners hands-on experience of making a music track from start to finish. Together, we created a CD with tracks featuring our Learners. Some Learners chose to play their own whilst they sang, whilst others chose to sing to backing track – creating a lovely variety of tracks for our album.

At the end of the process, the studio made us our own CDs, which we sold at our Christmas play to help to raise funds for Rainbows Hospice.

The day was a great success and we’re very grateful to the studio for inviting us in. Our Learners really enjoyed the day and gained a great experience from it. Some of them enjoyed the experience so much they’ve told us that they would love to spend more time in a recording studio!
