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.
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.
This afternoon, Class 3 and 4 were treated to a visit from the wonderful children’s author Harriet Whitehorn who travelled all the way from London to visit the children of Bryn Offa. Harriet talked to the pupils about ‘World Building,’ shared her ideas for her books and gave the pupils the opportunity to ask questions.
On Monday 14th October, the whole school visited Llanymynech Church to celebrate Harvest Festival. Reverend Trimby led the Worship along with Creation Club who gave thanks for the food donated to the Oswestry Food bank. They also sang and shared poems and prayers they had written.
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.
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.
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.
