    Roebuck Primary School and Nursery pupils have had a wonderful day celebrating technology. Many thanks to one of our dads who led our assembly and shared how Ocado use technology to help their customers. We also had robots brought into school for several year groups to explore using. Thank you to Stevenage museum who worked with Early years looking at what life was like at home before technology improved. Year 2 visited Tescos. Year 4 visited the lamex stadium (Stevenage Football Club's ground). Many thanks to one of our mums who brought an ambulance in to school and to the local community police officers who also visited. Barnwell School and Thomas Alleyne School kindly came to teach our pupils about car robot wars and coding. The children has such an inspriational day full of learning experiences. Thank you to all the staff for planning a wide range of activities including a QR code trail. In the afternoon, we were also visited by a Healthy Schools advisor.

  • Library Opens

    Published 18/01/17

    On Monday, our newly revamped library opened for parents and children to use together. Many children were collected from school early so that they could visit the library with their parents and take out one of our new books. Children were inspired as they read information frames about all of their favourite authors; found cuddly toys representing characters from their favourite stories; searched through hundreds of new books filling the shelves; spent time looking at classes and teachers' recommended books; and found new genres such as Graphic Novels. Watch this space as our library is still going through some develpmental work - new furniture and wall paintings arrive soon.

    The library now opens to families both after school on a Monday and before school on a Wednesday. we also have a team of superb Year 5 Librarians who will always be o hand to help you and guide you so that you can easily find a book of your choice and one that excites you.

    A big thank you to Mrs Thomas and a team of TAs and parents who helped revamp the library and give you what you see today.
