Year 2 had their entry point for their new unit for this half term 'Superhumans'. The children came dressed as their favourite super human! We had a day filled with science and we looked at tooth hygiene and removing the plaque from our teeth, our five senses where we all tried food and had to guess while being blindfolded. In the afternoon we looked at the human skeleton and tried to place all the bones in the right place and then we looked at eating a balanced diet and what food goes in which of the food groups.
Well done to our year 4 & 5 pupils that were selected for a Gifted and Talented workshop at Treviglas School yesterday. The pupils completed fitness testing as well as taking part in a range of competitive games matches. All the pupils showed great determination and sportsmanship! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ»
Year 2 were so excited to be reunited with Pinky yesterday! He will be joining us again for our outdoor learning sessions this half term. We learned all about animals and what their babies/offspring are called. Did you know a baby moose is called a calf? We were also surprised to learn that a baby rabbit is called a kitten! We played games and even created our own 'pups' (baby bats) using nature! It was so much fun and we can't wait for next week.
When we were in the library, Foundation Stage had a special surprise visit from the Easter Bunny. What a wonderful Easter treat! Happy Easter everyone! πŸ₯πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ» 🐰
Fabulous β€˜plastic’ Easter baskets! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ₯
Foundation Stage had a visit from the Easter Bunny this morning and he left clues for us to find. We had to solve the clues to get a special Easter treat. We even found his rabbit hole! πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ°
Y6 had their final Spring outdoor learning session with Pinky today! We learnt about 'Leave No Trace' which is a set of outdoor ethics with seven key principles. We finished off the session with some tasty Pinky's happy buns. 1. Plan ahead and prepare.
2. Travel and camp on durable surfaces.
3. Dispose of waste properly.
4. Leave what you find.
5. Minimise campfire impacts (be careful with fire).
6. Respect wildlife.
7. Be considerate of other visitors.

Year 1 this afternoon had a lot of fun in our exit point. Categorising animals with Marks Ark. The best part was the animal encounters.
What an incredible day for Year One. This morning we finished off our outdoor learning with magineoutdoorsuk where we learnt about slow worms and reptiles. We really enjoyed creating our own 'banana slugs' and roasting them on the campfire. This afternoon we had a lot of fun in our exit point. Categorising animals with Marks Ark. The best part was the animal encounters.

Year 2 have reached the end of their topic 'Our World'. For their exit point, they created their own exhibitions based around a continent and worked in small groups to create these. They invited Year 1 to come and look at their work and were able to teach them facts about each continent. It was lovely to see all of the children interacting and talking about their learning.

Walrus enjoyed using their geography skills on their expedition to the church and Porth Beach. They were able to use their maps and compasses to safely direct them to the right place. We learnt about private paths and made sure we weren't trespassing!

On Monday 28th November, five children from across years 5 and 6 represented the school at the inauguration event of Reverend Chris McQullian Wright at St Michael’s Church. The children sang with the choir from Bishops’ school as well as the men’s choir Oll An Gwella. We are incredibly proud of how beautifully the children sang and were perfect ambassadors for the school.
