Bird of Prey Visit – 16th January

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Mike from the Welsh Bird of Prey Centre in Pembrokeshire.

We found out lots of information about the birds and some of us even got to hold the tawny owl!

3rd December – Our visit to Blue Planet Aquarium!

We had the most amazing day at Blue Planet Aquarium!

We started the day with a classroom session where we learnt all about sea creatures – did you know that sand tiger sharks have around 350 teeth!! The session finished with us meeting a starfish – we were allowed to touch it as long as we were gentle.

Next we went to a divers show! We learnt how to communicate with the divers through the glass before they fed the sting rays and fish!

We headed through the under water tunnel and had scary sharks and huge sting rays swimming over the top of us!

After a quick break for dinner we explored the rest of the aquarium looking at all the exhibits before heading back to school.

Diwali – Wednesday 7th November

This afternoon we found out why and how people celebrate Diwali, the festival of light.

We made our own rangoli and henna patterns, tried on a saree, made our own diva lamps and tried some of the celebratory food.

Outdoor learning – Monday 5th November

This afternoon we headed outside to get creative with autumn leaves!

We started with bonfire safety making our own fireworks with the leaves which appeared on our safety posters,

We then took some fantastic photos and has lots of fun using the autumn leaves as confetti 🙂

Condover Update

Mr Jones still having difficulty with the internet connection in Condover so has asked me to pass on that all the children had another great day yesterday but they are looking forward to sseeing families today. I’m sure Mr Jones will put up photos when they get back.

Mr Thompson


Just had a message from the Condover group that the wi-fi is not very good so updating the blog with pictures is difficult. All went well yesterday and a full day of activities planned for today. Weather looking OK. Will update with pictures when possible.
