Invention Convention 17/01/23

There was an optional opportunity for pupils across the school to be inventors over the Christmas break. They needed to think of a problem that they could try to solve, or an invention that just made life easier or more fun. The results were amazing! The gallery below gives you an insight into the afternoon. Some pupils from Rainbow created amazing inventions with their parents. Not only did the group need to be powerful inventors, but confident presenters too.

On the 17th of January, students from Deanshanger Primary School and New Bradwell school came together  for a show and tell for their inventions. The children presented their inventions with real energy and enthusiasm - they also asked the other inventors lots of great questions. You can see some pictures in this gallery, that this was a very special event putting the children's practical, communication and creative skills to the test.

Department Dental Talk

This morning all of our classes were introduced to our dental nursing team, who very kindly came in to show the children the importance of brushing our teeth and what we eat to help keep our teeth healthy. Each class were most excited to have a go at brushing the big set of teeth and learnt how to brush.

Your child has been given a visual timetable for them to brush their teeth, which we thought would be a nice visual-tool to use. There is no obligation for you to complete this and return, it is simply for you to use at home.

Visual timetable link

If you would like any advice on oral hygiene, either contact your dentist or use the following link for advice on children's oral health.
