On Sunday 10th June, we joined members of the Potters Bar community to celebrate the annual Carnival. Before half term, we had been busy preparing for the event by planning our walking float and creating the artwork for the exhibition.

On Friday 25th May, all the children in year three, four, five and six set off from Ladbrooke to go and run in the Oakmere mini marathon. This annual event is looked forward to by everyone each year and is an opportunity for children, teachers and parents to compete.

Early in the Spring Term, after our success in the National Maths competition, we were invited to enter a national writing competition. All children across KS2 were invited to participate and we sent off lots of entries to be considered. The children were asked to write a story about a hero … either real or imaginary.

On Thursday 26th April, Year 1&2 held a cake sale and raised a fantastic £185. Thank you to everyone who helped out on the day and for all your cake donations and purchases.

Vincent, Daisy, Joel and Brooke worked through a particularly complicated problem, demonstrating brilliant team work and perseverance skills. They challenged each other well throughout the process and presented their findings confidently.

The children won lots of amazing goodies, including a class trip to Kidzania and trophies to help remember this achievement for the rest of their lives.

We are so very proud of how well they represented Ladbrooke and for beating 746 schools across the country to put our school on the map.

Here is what Joel, one of our winners, recounted about the day.
