Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Freeman’s Endowed Church of England Junior Academy, as Principal it is a privilege to give you an insight into the fantastic experiences and adventures that our children will encounter during their time with us.

At Freeman’s we aim to create strong, positive relationships and partnerships with every member of our community, staff, Governors, parents/carers and children. Our ethos is centred around our six Christian Values: Faith, Aspirations, Resilience, Forgiveness, Respect and Honesty.

We strive to create a learning environment that will inspire, motivate, stimulate and encourage our children through their own learning journey, a place where children can spread their wings and fly, having the opportunities to strive to be the best that they can be.

Thank you for visiting our website and I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Year 6 Identity

As part of our new topic ‘ID` we have been looking at the meaning of identity. We have created new identities by mixing up our own, made word clouds using words to describe our own identities and are in the process of writing shape poems about ourselves.

Year 6 Residential

As we now have access to the internet we would like to share some photos from the trip.    

Year 6 Cookies

We had help from Chef to make chocolate chip cookies this afternoon. They were delicious. She even let us use the ovens in the pod!

What colour is a shadow? Year 6

Year 6 have been investigating shadows using different coloured lights to see if they could create different coloured shadows. They tried hard to describe what they saw, with some very interesting results.

 

Year 6 residential

Year 6 residential update…. the children had a fun day yesterday taking part in water activities. They were so tired everyone was in bed and fast asleep by 9!
They are trying to send photos over but the signal has not been great. As anymore information arrives we will post on the here, facbook and on our twitter feed.

Year 6 Worm Charmers

The year 6 children who stayed at school this week have had a great week. We have tried to answer the question ‘How many worms are under the ground?’ We researched earthworms and were surprised by how many different types there are. We found out how to charm worms and we tried to beat the world record – held by a ten-year-old girl (567 worms in 30 minutes). We managed five!! It was great fun though.

Year 6 Residential

Year 6 have arrived safely at their destination. Pictures and updates will follow throughout the week as and when they can get a signal to send them 

Year 6 Heart Dissection

Year 6 had a fantastic experience to finish their topic of Blood Heart this week. Mr Campbell dissected a real animal heart in class and it was projected up onto the big screen so all the children could see a real-life version of the facts they have been learning.
