Out of the Blue(s)

on Thursday, 28 April 2016.

Last week we were visited by www.bamboozletheatre.co.uk. They spent time in the Primary department making Cheeky rat puppets and the students had a wonderful time. Bamboozle’s approach engages with children and young people with a range of cognitive and behavioural needs, moving students’ engagement with the world to a deeper level. The students were enchanted by the delivery of the sessions and the puppets they created and all the classes I visited were abuzz with creativity and fun. Thanks to all the guys at Bamboozle and we hope to see you again soon.

The 6th form social enterprise ELLESprint have had a highly rewarding time recently. There was the success of the Choice Unlimited event (as highlighted in the previous blog post), the continued development of the 6th form prospectus project and now the opportunity has arisen for some exciting new projects. ELLESprint have been invited to a meeting with John Coster from Leicester Centre for Integrated Living to discuss some new projects he is keen to involve ELLESprint in.

Last Friday saw a whole-school PSHE day, full of activities and challenges aimed at improving, informing and involving students in issues regarding their health and well-being. The day was brilliantly organised and delivered with student engagement and enjoyment visibly apparent to all.

Some of our Primary classes are off to visit West Lodge Rural centre today where they will meet and handle lots of small animals and even meet the baby lambs! West Lodge is a fabulous place. Have a great day guys.

And finally, like most of the city, we here at Ellesmere are fervently ‘Backing the Blues’ (#backingtheblues) and supporting Leicester City in their incredible bid to become Premier League champions. City are just three points away from winning the title and could do it this weekend with a victory at Manchester United. We at Ellesmere are hugely proud to be from such a vibrant city and are thrilled that City are poised to bring sporting glory with what would be one of the most incredible fairy tales the country has ever witnessed. Come on City!
