All the Year 6 children are now fully back into the swing of the new academic year. It started in the best possible way, with a visit to Arthog. All of the children had a great time on each of the activities, working as a team and preparing themselves for the challenges that lie ahead. All of the staff who accompanied them from school and the Arthog instructors were incredibly impressed with not only their behaviour but also the way in which they supported each other throughout the week. Please see the photos below. A great time was had by all.
Here is the PowerPoint used in the parent meeting today.
Today, the Year 4s from Class 3 and 4 experienced two activities provided by Arthog Outreach. They got to go canoeing down the canal, which was absolutely fantastic. It really encouraged the children to work as a team and communicate well with one another. We also got to experience some bush-craft activities. One group made nettle and elderflower tea whilst the other made popcorn. Everybody had a lovely time and coped really well with the heat!

On Friday 15th June, Class 3, Class 4 and the Year 5s from Class 5 all went on a trip to Chester Zoo. It was a really enjoyable day and each group also attended a workshop related to our current science topic of animals and humans. The pictures below are from the ‘Survival in the Wild’ workshop the Year 5s attended. This focussed on how animals are adapted for survival and food chains. Some of the objects the children got to touch, which can be seen below, were confiscated by customs agents and donated to the zoo.
The trip was such a success, we hope to repeat it in a couple of years time.
A huge thank you to everybody who supported our stallholders during last week. The class 5 children have raised just over £600. Which, I am sure that you will agree, is an amazing achievement. As promised, the money will be going on a script for the end of year play; a leavers gift for the school and the remaining will be put towards the end of year trip. It was such a huge success that we have already decided to run it next year. Well done to all of class 5 who made last week so successful.
