  • Dream catcher Mark Lewis

    Published 13/12/21

    Today we had a dream catcher assembly with Mr Lewis, who is the headteacher at The Thomas Alleynes Secondary School. He also works closely with our school. He explained to us that being a Head Teacher is not just about sitting around in a dull office doing nothing, he told us that all his days are different and exciting. For example, he and students have been on a number of trips to different areas in different countries- Russia, France/Paris and Greece.

    Mr Lewis was born in Stevenage, but grew up in Biggleswade, as a child. When Mr Lewis  was a child he went to Lodge Farm Primary school and Highfield secondary school. Also, when he was younger he wanted to be a history teacher and journalist. As he wanted to be a history teacher he had to study all subjects at school. He told us that he loves his job and couldn’t ask for a better one. 

    He left the children with a nugget of wisdom which was,‘Have a go at everything and be courageous’.

  • Lawson Trio Classical music Concert

    Published 07/12/21

    Key Stage 2 classes experienced a Piano Trio last week in school. The children from Upper and Lower Key Stage 2 enjoyed listening to a variety of classical pieces of music from composers who were still alive. The Lawson Trio performed a variety of songs to the children, highlighting the different instruments that were on show: the piano, violin and double bass.  The musicians worked hard to engage the children and teach them about each instrument as well as lots of key vocabulary. They encouraged the children to create stories in their mind from the pieces and discuss how it made them feel and what parts of the music made them feel this way.

  • Pam Pellen Dream catcher

    Published 14/11/21

    Today we had a Dream catcher assembly and a lady came in named Pam Pellen. She is a creative producer and a drama practitioner, who was born in South East London. When she was younger she liked to climb trees, read and write stories and play let's pretend. She also wanted to be a cowboy or an Olympic swimmer because people who did this had inspired her to do it too. However, her love for drama changed that. When she moved on to secondary school there was no drama for her to participate in except school plays (she went to an all-girls school). Since her love of drama grew she decided to become a drama teacher when she grew up. When she taught drama she was very upset that boys didn't want to participate in drama. At one point in her teaching industry she was going to give up teaching drama. However, with the help of all the staff that worked with her motivated her to keep on going. A quote from her father was ‘keep on going and others will follow’. She stated that reading helped her when growing up.

    Her nugget of inspiration to the children in school was ‘Get reading and keep on reading’- Pam Pellen
