Last Friday, Class 5 went to St Agatha’s church in Llanymynech to look at the various features of a Christian church.
All of the children enjoyed their morning and learnt a great deal. They were a pleasure to take out of the classroom and listened
impeccably to Reverend Trimby and her volunteer helpers from the local churches in the area.
On Wednesday 26th June Class 2 visited the British Ironworks Centre!
We did lots of great activities!
We all created our own pebbles to go on the wiggler path. We even made one for the whole of Bryn Offa!
We also went on a tour of the showroom and hunted for as many different materials as we could find. We found rubber, plastic, metal, fabric, leather and wood.
Over lunch we completed a drawing competition! We had to draw our favourite sculpture from the day. They were judged by members of staff at the centre. A big well done to George (1st), Maddie (2nd) and Alfie (3rd).
We visited a potter called Georgie who showed us how to make a bowl out of clay.
We completed the safari quiz going through all the incredible animals and finding the answers to some very tricky questions! Of course we took Safari Bear with us!
Finally we had a really special treat of ice cream pots!!
I’ve just had confirmation the water is back on in school, and supply uninterrupted. School open on Friday 28th June.
Class 5 will still go on their visit to the church tomorrow, but Class 4 will have their visit rearranged.
Apologies for any inconveniences. I hope you were able to make the best of the beautiful day.
Really sorry, but we have no water in school so have to close today for children and staff. Assume normal opening tomorrow.
Today, the Year 4s and some children who had previously missed out on the opportunity went to Pool Quay. We spent half the day canoeing and the other half completing bushcraft activities. Everybody had a lovely day in the warm, sunny weather and the behaviour was excellent.

Our final challenge for D&T was to design and create a hide for safari bear using only skewers, elastic bands and sellotape.
Here are each tables structure with their chosen names:
Safari bear’s cave – Purple table
The fun hide out – Yellow table
X21 – Green table
Safari Bear’s camouflage cosy raft tent – Pink table
Yesterday Class 1 and 2 both walked to Llanymynech church.
When we arrived Rev. Trimby had organised a role play baptism involving some of the children.
We also when on a hunt for some of the important symbols around the church and completed some sketches.
After we went to the Heritage Area for a picnic!
All the children were fantastic! Their behaviour was brilliant and they really enjoyed their visit!
A big thank you to all the volunteers who walked with us, to and from church.
