The girls played three games (0-0, 3-0, 2-0) and topped our group!

Such an amazing team effort and a great start to the year! Well done girls!!!

Roald Dahl Day – Class 2

We had so much fun in Class 2 on Roald Dahl day! We read parts of lots of different Roald Dahl books, we learnt about Roald Dahl and wrote our own fact files, we even played Roald Dahl games in our P.E. session.

Look at our amazing costumes!

Class 4 – Roald Dahl Day

For Roald Dahl Day in Class 4, we created our own poems based on Mr Twit’s beard. We then shared our ideas and used them to create a class poem, which we shared in Achievement Assembly. The children performed really well, they all spoke with loud and proud voices. Well done, Class 4.

Class 4 – Space model

On Friday, Class 4 used their research to make a model of Space using fruit.

Each planet was represented by the following:

  • Mercury = peppercorn
  • Venus = raspberry
  • Earth = cherry tomato
  • Mars = blueberry
  • Jupiter = watermelon
  • Saturn = grapefruit
  • Uranus = apple
  • Neptune = lime

We then discussed how we could improve our model. Some of the fantastic suggestions were to include the moons of the planets, draw their orbits and make sure our model is to scale.

Frame Structures in Class 4

Today, Class 4 explored making some frame structures. We started by creating a 2D shape from spaghetti and marshmallows. We then used that shape as a face for our 3D shapes. After that, we made the tallest structure we could. As our structures got taller, we had to reinforce them with extra spaghetti.

After break, we used bamboo kebab sticks, paper straws and elastic bands to make a frame structure which could hold a weight. Will’s structure managed to hold a weight of  1700g! As we added more weight, we had to reinforce our structures and try to balance the weight in the middle of the structure.

Today’s activities allowed us to work as a team, as well as develop our resilience and perseverance. Tomorrow, we will design a frame structure for forest school for Class 1 and 2 to use.

Well done Class 4

Class 5’s St Agatha’s Church Visit

Last Friday, Class 5 went to St Agatha’s church in Llanymynech to look at the various features of a Christian church.

All of the children enjoyed their morning and learnt a great deal.  They were a pleasure to take out of the classroom and listened

impeccably to Reverend Trimby and her volunteer helpers from the local churches in the area.
