This week Class 5 will be debating a number of topics in class. These include:

- Children should take part in one hour of P.E daily;
- Packed lunches should be banned at Bryn Offa;
- Children in Class 5 should have one hour of homework daily;
- Children in Key stage 2 should have an afternoon break.
Keep posted for the results of the motions on Friday.

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.
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.
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.
