Athletics – Meet 2/3

Yesterday evening, the Bryn Offa athletics team competed in the second round of the Oswestry area indoor athletics competition.

After a fantastic effort one week ago we found ourselves in first place.  I am pleased to say that once again our pupils did us proud and produced another dazzling display.

Well done to all of the children!

Indoor Athletics

Thursday evening saw the first of three indoor athletics events being held at the Marches school.

Bryn Offa’s team had been training hard all week and produced a sensational display in both field events and the relays.  This has seen us move into first place after round 1.

Class 4 Design and Technology

Today we all made our own gift box using Computer Aided Design (CAD). Once the children had designed their net, they created it on the computer and printed out a paper prototype. Some children then needed to make some alterations before printing out their final product onto card. Inside their Christmas gift box was some yummy chocolate and orange shortbread. As well as developing their D&T skills, this project allowed them to practise perseverance and patience.

Well done Class 4 – You have created some amazing products and I am incredibly proud of you all!

Design and Technology in Class 4

This week in Class 4 we are looking at shell structures. We started off by evaluating current products and decided what we liked and would use for our own product. We decided to use exciting font, pictures and a colour scheme on our product. It was essential our food product had an ingredient list too.

Next, we had a go at making 3D shapes from nets.

We learnt that pyramids were a nightmare to make, tabs were essential and worked best when in a trapezium shape. We created our design criteria: Design, make and evaluate a gift box for a family member for Christmas.

Our last task of the day was to start designing our own gift box. The children have worked really hard and been extremely enthusiastic.

Well done Class 4

Maths in Class 4

Today in Class 4, we estimated the area of irregular shapes. We used the map at the front of our class text ‘How to Train your Dragon’.

Condover Visit

The Year 5s had a fantastic few days at Condover and behaved exceptionally well, as always. They challenged themselves to try new things, whether that was on the trapeze or staying away from home for the first time. I have added a selection of photos below but the children should be able to access all of the photos on the computers in school.

Year 5 Condover Visit

Evening All!

I have just checked my emails and realised that I have received one from the Year 5 pupils and staff from Condover.  It sounds like they are having an amazing time.

Everyone is having a great time at Condover and are well into their second morning activity, archery. Yesterday the children tackled different height challenges, either trapeze or zip wire. I am sure the children can’t wait to tell you all about the activities they have done.

We look forward to welcoming them back at school tomorrow afternoon.

Balaji Temple Visit – Class 3 and Year 4

Yesterday, we had a fantastic day visiting the Balaji Temple. The children were extremely well behaved and were very enthusiastic as they learnt lots of new facts about Hinduism. As Reese Derwas said “This is so interesting!”

Shri Venkateswara (Balaji) Temple

On Thursday 26th September, Years 5+6 visited a Hindu Temple close to Birmingham.  The children were invited to see the various  shrines dedicated to different Hindu Gods.  For many children (and staff) this was their first visit to a Hindu place of worship.  All pupils found the visit incredibly interesting and it really brought the Hinduism topic to life.  Amelia Edwards summed up the day perfectly when she commented, “This religion is fascinating!” As always, the children’s behaviour was superb and the respect  shown to members of the public who had come to worship at the temple was wonderful to see.

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.
