Clonter Opera

Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic day at the Clonter Opera. Our first task was to design our own sets for a stage production. Next we had a music workshop, where we sang songs, recorded a magical forest sound track, danced and even learnt the alphabet in sign language. In the afternoon, we watched the actors and singers perform. There were songs from West Side Story, Matilda and Sweeny Todd. We all enjoyed it and can’t wait to visit again.

Fabulous Elf Run

This afternoon, we did our Elf Run, following our sponsorships for East Cheshire Hospice, where as a school we raised over £2,000!  We then watched Mrs Isherwood and Bethany put their feet in jelly wellies!

evaporating
and using litmus paper to see which sand contained acid.

Fire Safety/Smoke Tent

Yesterday, Year 5 had a visit from John, a fireman from Cheshire Fire and Safety, to talk to us about keeping safe and demonstrate just how quickly a fire can start. We learnt how important it is to keep the floors clear, keeping a fire action plan and why it’s so vital to have a fire safety plan. Then we went onto the playground to see what smoke does when we went into a smoke tent.
