  • Making MRI Scans better for children

    Yesterday visitors from the The University of Sheffield came in to visit children in classes 2 and 5. They wanted the children's help in knowing how to make #MRI scanners for children a more enjoyable experience. They explained what an MRI scanner was, how it works and why MRI scans are used.

    Firstly the children  had to draw something that made them feel  happy or a toy/character that we liked.
    Then they were given junk modelling and in groups had to create our own version of an MRI scanner for little characters to go in. Next they used  iPads and some VR googles to know what it was like to be in hospital seeing an MRI scan happen – it really brought it to life!

    The ladies were very grateful for the children's help and ideas and will keep us up to date with their project.

  • Stars of the Week

    Every Friday we award a certificate to a child from each class. The ward may be in recognition of any personal positive achievement they have made during that week.

    We will post the recipients of these awards on the Class Learning Blogs, along with a photograph, each Friday evening. A photograph will also be posted on the notice board near the main gate each Monday.
