Well done to Year 5! They've had a wonderful few days with the team from Bikeability to achieve their certificates in Level 1 and Level 2 cycling proficiency. Below are a few images captured from sunny Monday.
We would like to congratulate all of our children for the hard work and effort they have all put in at Old Stratford Primary School, but there were a small number who our teachers felt deserved a VIP recognition at our assembly today. Below we can see all 14 of them pictured with their medals.

Visual Impairment Awareness Day
The whole school took part in a fantastic Visual Impairment Awareness Day. The children experienced numerous activities where they were encouraged too use all of their senses to complete different tasks. The children were also able to experience different types of sight impairment by using special glasses that emulate different sight impairments. Using a Braille machine was a particular favourite of the children as a fellow student took the lead in showing how it was done.
What a fabulous day. A big thank you to Mrs Burnside and the Northampton Visual Impairment Support Team for helping to organise this wonderful experience for our children.
Year 3&4 Bikeability Level 1
The sun was shining for our Year 3&4 who did very well achieving their Level 1 in Bikeability, below are some pictures from that day and Year 5 are yet to do theirs in April and we are so looking forward to inviting the Bikeability team back to Old Startford Primary School!
Young Voices assembly!
Today we had the musical delights from our Years 5&6 for our Young Voices today in assembly, they sang beautifully for those who couldn't attend and the whole school had the chance to be apart of the magic that was our Young Voices at the 02!
Toy Museum Trip
Our topic this term is all about ‘Toys’ so this week Year 1 and Year 2 decided to take a trip to The Higgins Museum in Bedford. They had an amazing time looking at and playing with toys from the past. They also had a creative session making traditional toys. Please have a look at the gallery photos to see what we all got up to! We thoroughly recommend a visit to the museum. They run lots of fun workshops in the school holidays too.

Fire Brigade visits Old Stratford School
We were delighted to welcome our local Northamptonshire Fire Brigade to speak to our Reception Year, they showed us all the tools involved and taught the children what to do in case of an emergency and how vital it is that they act and stay out of danger where possible. Please see photos below showing a very brief meeting with our firemen before they had to dash off on a real emergency call which the children got to watch.
A thirty minute journey away from Old Stratford Northampton Rugby Ground, the children were greeted in the ‘Member’s Bar’ to talk through the facts and history of this Immense stadium.
The children were able to play rugby-type games and then the children were treated to a teamwork game in the members bar, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and this was a great experience once again to show the children and amazing sport to inspire the mind.
Toy Story day with Year 1&2
Pictures below show our Toy Story day where children watched exerts from toy story learning how to describe the characters and creating Mr Potato head in the style of Pablo Picasso.
Year 1&2 London Eye Trip
Pictures below show the wonderful opportunity that our children had to see the sights they spoke about in the 'We love London assembly' it was a beautiful day with clear skies for us to see for miles around and a relaxing boat trip showing us the sights of London.
Year 2 'We Love London' Assembly
Year 2 did us proud, not a mistake in sight and every one shone like stars with their ‘We love London Assembly’ telling us all about London’s iconic buildings, history and who could forget 006 and a bit, Billy Bond.
Today we also welcomed a very important visitor to Old Stratford Primary, THE QUEEN!!!!
We were taken on a tour of iconic monuments learning about interesting facts that will make it even more special for the children when they actually visit these great buildings at the London Eye trip on the 4th December.
We couldn’t be more proud watching our children perform and putting so much effort into each costume and prop, I think the parents can agree that they certainly deserved a big round of applause!
