Today Year 3 children from Houghton on the Hill CofE school came to watch the Year 2 Eid Performance. They really enjoyed watching the show and learning all about Eid! We hope to visit them soon.

Year 1 enjoyed a wonderful trip to Tropical Birdland this week. We learnt all about different birds, where they are from and what they like to eat. We were really brave and help some of the birds which was really exciting! Later on we went for a long walk and enjoyed the play area. What a great day!

The children enjoyed a fantastic last day of term by taking part in an Easter Egg Hunt! Eggs were hidden all around the school and prizes were given to those who found the most eggs! Take a look through the photos to see how much fun was had!

To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the Attenborough Learning Trust, the trust schools got together to put on a celebration event. The trust has grown from the original four schools – Uplands Infants, Green Lane Infants, Highfields Primary and Sparkenhoe Primary to now also include Charnwood Primary, Inglehurst Primary, Buswell’s Lodge Primary, Shenton Primary and Bridge Junior School.

All of the school’s children performed and everyone had a brilliant time! The Uplands performances can be viewed below.

The children (and staff) had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day! We saw some well know characters brought to life in the children’s fancy dress costumes. You can find out more about World Book Day on our assembly page!


2MA visited the King Richard III Visitor Centre, we were able to see different artefacts and see the dig site of where the archaeologists found king Richards skeleton. We also looked at the timeline of his life and we were able to decide whether king Richard was a good king or a bad king. 

Today we had the NSPCC workshop. They talked to the children about how they can be safe in and outside of school. They also explained to them that there are lots of different people that they can talk to if they feel worried, anxious or scared. The children created their own ‘buddies’ in the buddy kit.

To celebrate Safer Internet Day, the children participated in a competition. They created posters to display the E-safety rules. We had over 70 entries. We chose 2 winners who won a v-tech smart watch.
