Our school year is packed with lots of exciting activities. Click below for pictures and videos of what we've been up to recently. To find out about upcoming events, take a look at the Calendar section of the website.
We are extremely proud to introduce our Year 6 Prefects to you. These children have been chosen by their class teachers to be prefects for the Autumn Term.
These children have been chosen due to their responsible attitudes towards their learning and their behaviour. They have shown to us that they are shining examples of positive role models who consistently uphold our school values.
Part of being a prefect is to take on roles and responsibilities to help and support the children and staff of Aerodrome Primary School. It is a huge privilege to be chosen for this role and we are incredibly proud of these children for setting such an excellent example to others so early on in the Year.
Well done to all the children whose work has made it into this term's Hall of Fame. A piece of work was chosen from each class and was shared in front of the whole school at the last Celebration Assembly of 2015.

Aerodrome Named Primary School of the Year Award in the Shine a Light Awards
We are over the moon to have been announced as the winners of this year's Shine a Light Awards. The annual awards celebrate schools which are committed to encouraging children's speech and communication skills. To find out more, please follow the link below.
We are over the moon to be welcoming a very special character to Aerodrome Academy this week. This life-size Paddington Bear, created by the Rolls Royce design team, has come for a visit.
Paddington arrived on Monday, and he brought with him a team from the NSPCC that included Chief Executive Peter Wanless. The children met the bear and the NSPCC team at their assemblies on Monday.
Thanks so much to everyone at the NSPCC for letting us borrow the bear. Thanks also to our Speech and Language Therapist Maxine Whitmore for making this happen!
Dinner demolished!! We will be en route to the ferry in a few minutes... Swimming and chocolate factory pictures to follow this evening. The children have behaved absolutely brilliantly. We are all very tired and looking forward to seeing our mums and dads (me included!!). See you later, Miss Beattie xxx
Year 4 are having an absolute ball!!
In the words of Phoebe Richardson 'today has been hectic and fun'!
Everyone successfully ordered their breakfast on the ferry using the French they have learnt. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sea life centre and saw every sea creature you could imagine. They have spent their money in a supermarket and bought enough sweets to last a life time (sorry!!). We have just devoured our steak-hache, chips and salad for dinner and will be beginning our evening activities soon.
Tomorrow we will be visiting the chocolate factory, swimming pool and having dinner at flunch.
Will try and update you again tomorrow!!

Diversity Week 2014
Wow! What a week. Thanks to all the parents, children and the staff here at Aerodrome for making this week so special.
We've been so busy. We've been painting Diva lights, having Henna tattoos, and cooking (and tasting!) food from all around the world. There's been a lot of drumming... both with the fantastic Bev and also in African dancing workshops on Friday. Years 4, 5 and 6 got out the iPads and tried their hands at creating world music. On Friday we came into school in traditional clothes and shared what we'd done this week in our Diversity Week assemblies, where we were also joined by Bhangra dancers and a traditional English story teller.
Many thanks again to all parents who joined us - we couldn't have done it without you!
Take a look at the slideshow below to see more of what we've been up to.
We've had great fun making music on Ipads today. All classes in Key Stage Two took part in Ipad music workshops, led by professional music producers Neil and Brad. We learnt how to play cord sequences on different virtual instruments including strings, bass and guitar. Once we were confident doing that, we explored Garage Band app to change the way the instruments sounded.
By that time, we were all experts! We got into groups of five, chose a band name and our own instruments. The workshops finished with performances from each band. Fantastic concentration and creativity from all the children. They really rocked it! Indeed, Miss Jones and Mr Wilson couldn't stop their feet from moving...
On Wednesday 25th June, we all had to put our pens and pencils away for the day. Instead, we had to focus on using verbal skills to help us learn. It was a challenge at first, especially for some of the teachers, some of whom were caught out before the day had even started.
At 2.50pm we all had to Drop Everything And Read. Luckily no-one was holding anything heavy at the time. Teachers and children all got comfy and stuck into a book. A great way to end a great day.
