Today, the whole school took part in pancake races to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. It was great to see all of the children encouraging their team members even when a few pancakes were dropped!
Year 6 were given a list of ingredients and a method where they had to work out decimals, fractions and percentages of each ingredient. They then had to bake their cakes according to their measurements. It's fair to say, some looked rather interesting before they even made it to the oven! All the children claim the cakes tasted nice- we aren't so sure!
To start 2018, we have been thinking about our goals and aspirations. What do we want to achieve in our lives? How can we fulfill our passions and potentials? We spent some time discussing how we would like our futures to look and have thought hard about the journeys we need to take to get us there. Have a look at some of our North Star maps. We have some budding teachers, film actors, vets and sportsmen. Aim high Year 6!
Year 6 went to the Livestock Centre for a morning of lifeskills. They had a number of different workshops run by a number of agencies including the fire brigade, the police, the RNLI and Western Power. The children had a lot of fun while being taught about how to keep themselves safe in the wider world.
Mr Upston spent a morning with each Year 6 class teaching them a variety of first aid skills including CPR, the recovery position and how to use bandages. The children really enjoyed themselves and learned some life long skills.
You could use these videos to help practice the songs from our play.
The sun is shining, the children are rested- not sure about the adults though. We enjoyed a day of kayaking, raft building and archery yesterday. Today, some of the children will be having a go at Bush craft and surfing. The children are behaving impeccably and are an absolute credit to our school.
