Our Enquiry Question Last Term

Who would we give our Bleasby Values Awards to?

In our Spring Enquiry, Pear and Plum Class thought about the question ‘Who would we give our Bleasby Values Awards to?’ We learnt about a range of special people who have achieved amazing things in their lives including: Mae Jemison, Neil Armstrong, Tim Peake, Grace Darling and the RNLI. We had an exciting visit from a planetarium that filled our school hall and we found out more about the 1969 moon landing and space and stars. Geoff from the RNLI visited to tell us more about the life saving work of the RNLI and he told us about Grace Darling and her brave rescue of shipwrecked survivors in 1838. We thought carefully about our learning and which special people have shown achieving, belonging and caring.  As part of our enquiry sharing assembly in March, we awarded Neil Armstrong with our Bleasby Achieving Award because of his bravery and that he went somewhere no one had ever visited. We awarded Tim Peake with our Bleasby Belonging Award as he was part of the European Space Agency and he learnt to speak Russian so he could travel to the ISS in space for 6 months. We awarded Grace Darling with our Bleasby Caring Award as she was so brave and caring towards the nine shipwrecked survivors that she helped to rescue. Have a look below at our Bleasby Astronaut Trainees and our Enquiry themed printing work.
