What a fabulous afternoon that we had! On Wednesday 24th October, we were visited by Adele a ranger from Chester Zoo who came to tell us all about life cycles. We learnt all about the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates, how long an elephant carries her baby for and we even got to see a video of an elephant being born at Chester Zoo. Thank you to Mrs Radcliffe for organizing it for us.
Nursery have been very busy this morning making pizzas in the shape of gingerbread men for our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic. We used tomato and herb pizza topping and cheese followed by chopped up peppers for the eyes, nose and mouth, one child even gave their gingerbread man eyebrows!
I am sure you’ll agree they look very tasty!
Year 5 have had a super day for No Pens Day Wednesday. It has been a day that has encouraged Miss Sowry to plan lessons that didn’t involve the children needing to use their pens or pencils and to run a day of hands on and speaking and listening activities. In English we performed our news reports in front of the the class and then we discussed what was good about each news report and what they could improve for next time. Each child said at least one positive aspect and one aspect that each group could work on.
Then in Science, we began to make and develop our parachutes as part of our Forces topic in Science- pictures to come soon.
Overall, we had a fantastic Wednesday and enjoyed not using pens, pencils or even whiteboard pens for the day.
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.
Yesterday was a very emotional day of goodbyes. I’ve had the pleasure of watching your children grow and flourish over the past two years (some even less) they are lovely children who all have the potential for achieving great things.
Well that is it… our time in Year One has come to an end! We have had such a lovely last day!
Just a quick message from me. I just want to say how much I have enjoyed teaching your children this year and watching them grow and progress across the year. It has been an absolute pleasure and I will miss every one of them!
Have a lovely, safe summer.
Miss Carter 🙂
