    Science Fair


    On Friday 14th February 2020, the children (Year 1-5/6) from Cottesmore Academy took part in a school science fair. All the different classes decided to share their amazing learning from Term 3. This event was attended by the parents and friends of the children and they were all very impressed by the children’s new learning and understanding of their specific area of science that they were working on. 

    The areas were: 

    Year 1 - Seasonal changes

    Year 2 - Plants

    Year 3 - Magnets

    Year 4 - The digestive system

    Year 5/6 - Earth and Space 


    Mr Brown, who organised the event, said, “It was an amazing success! It was so lovely to see everyone enjoying the fair and talking about all their different learning.”

    On Monday 3rd February, the Year 5/6 children are going to hold a fundraising day to support The Red Cross Australia.


    As a class, we have been learning about how to be journalists and as part of that the children decided that they wanted to hold a fundraising day to raise funds for the animals and people who have been effected by the wild bush fires in Australia and then write a newspaper report on the day. 


    The events that the children have decided to include are: wearing odd socks for the day; name the koala; a running challenge and a bake sale.

  • £200 of new books for the school!

    Thu 28 Nov 2019

    Today, Mrs Lucas and three children from Year 5/6 have been to Walkers' Bookshop in Oakham to spend £200 on new books for the school! The money was awarded to Cottesmore Academy after Mrs Lucas entered a competition. To qualify for the money, we had to spend it in an independent bookstore of our choice and allow the children to choose the books. 

    The children chose from an amazing array of books and the staff at Walkers' Bookshop were fabulous and very welcoming! The children selected books that were situation for multiple different types of readers throughout the school from early readers to reluctant reader to avid readers! They made some wonderful book choices and we can't wait to read them.
