Off we go! Travel day today. After some fond farewells, our Year 6 children climbed aboard the coach, Wales bound. We made a quick pitstop at Telford services before carrying on through the twists and turns of the Welsh B-roads. Now back after 3 years away, we arrived at Plas Dol-y-Moch and thankfully the rain had stopped. Chester had a
Two children from each year group were able to go to Coventry University today to have a look around their engineering department. We first shared some of our amazing science knowledge with other schools and got to hear what they’ve been up to too. We then were tasked with building a car using K-NEX, which had to support a superhero
We’ve just started our new topic, Towers, Turrets and Tunnels! Year 2 were challenged to use our Kapla building blocks to create a sturdy enough wall to withstand a ball being rolled against it. In small teams they made their wall then attempted to knock down the other team’s walls. We had to make sure we kept the ball the
British Science Week wanted us to think about growth this year and how different things around the world grow and adapt. Year 2 have look specifically at Gentoo Penguins that live in Antarctica. Their habitat is becoming warmer and therefore the weather is changing. Stronger winds and more rain make it hard for them to build their nests. They have
We’ve been resourceful in Forest Schools by creating a natural drum kit out of whatever we could find. We had fun singing and dancing along to the beat whilst we made some beads out of elder sticks.
Year 6 Forest Schools group has been learning to tie different knots to help them with building shelters. We used the reef knot to tie rope together and then used a loop knot to create ends to put pegs through. Teamwork was essential as we made use of all the natural logs and branches.
2S have enjoyed an amazing day dressing up and learning more about Pirates. We had a real pirate visitor come to tales us tales of the scurvy seas and even had us walking the plank! We draw what we could see through our telescope and even tried some piratey food.
Children in Year 2 have had a visitor in school to tell them all about Carbon Monoxide and it’s dangers. They’ve been charged by the superhero bear ‘Safety Seymour’ to make their families aware of the dangers caused by Carbon Monoxide. We role played the effects of Carbon Monoxide poisoning and what we need to do if we ever find
We’ve been stepping into the smelly shoes of a crewmate on board a pirate ship. The crew’s quarters were very cramped and most sailors had to share a small space to sleep in with one or two others! We tried to understand how this would have felt by getting under our tables and imagining we were under the poop deck
Class 2S have also been making various types of ships and treasure chests for their homework project over the half term break. We’ve loved learning about pirates and we are continuing with this as we looked more closely at how a non-fiction text is displayed. We had to make sure the text was in the correct order and the subheadings
