Year 4 - Chester Zoo Workshop, by Mrs Hover

Date: 29th Nov 2018 @ 12:14pm

Chester Zoo Workshop - Act for Wildlife

We all learnt lots today with our safari ranger, Marissa from Chester Zoo. Marissa explained that Chester Zoo’s whole aim is to prevent animals from becoming extinct. We then looked at the main threats to endangered animals and these are:

1) Habitat loss 2) Illegal Wildlife trade 3) Pollution

Marissa explained that we need to ‘SPREAD THE WORD’ in order to help conservation. In groups, we looked at different animal artefacts that had been seized by the police due to illegal wildlife trade. They included a handbag made from snake skin, an elephant tusk, rhino medicine, leopard skin and chimpanzee skulls.

Finally, we discussed the impact of pollution and worked as a class to create a timeline, looking at how long it takes for everyday objects to break down and decompose.

Year 3 visitors , by Miss Jones

Date: 27th Nov 2018 @ 12:21pm

Year 3 have been very lucky to have had two visitors into the classroom this week. Last Tuesday, Mr Trevor visited the class to deliver a workshop about the Stone Age. The children were fabulous at asking and answering historical questions. It was a perfect opportunity for them to show Mr Trevor what they have learnt during their English and topic lessons. I was very proud  of the children and amazed at just how much they could remember from lessons. 

This Tuesday, we welcomed a ladycalled Marissa from Chester zoo . She tasked to us about the importance of looking after our planet by recycling and reducing plastic waste. The children were shocked to learn just how long it takes for certain materials to rot after they are thrown in the bin. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle 😀

Year 4 - A young orangutan, by Mrs Hover

Date: 22nd Nov 2018 @ 8:29pm

Really impressed by the children's thoughts based on the Greenpeace advert, 'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom'. This led to research on palm oil and deforestatation.  The children then wrote from the point of view of a young orangutan in its natural habitat and then during and after deforestation.

Year 3 visit Waitrose, by Miss Jones

Date: 13th Nov 2018 @ 6:01pm

Today we walked to Waitrose for a visit. We had a special tour around the store; visiting the delivery entrances, store rooms and even the giant freezer! We also made fruit kebabs to bring back to school in the Waitrose staff room. We learnt lots about making healthy food and drink choices. The children were fabulous today and were very sensible when walking near the roads and canal. We even has a member of the public compliment the children on their fantastic behaviour. How wonderful is that!
