Active maths in Year 3, by Miss Jones

Date: 7th Jun 2019 @ 6:03pm

We have enjoyed competing TWO active maths activities today. We worked in the hall and in our classroom because of the rainy weather but that did not stop us having lots of fun. 

We have practised reading time on analogue clocks and we have been estimating how long something would take to do. What could you do in an hour? A minute? A second?

Year 4's mysterious object!, by Mrs Hover

Date: 6th Jun 2019 @ 2:19pm

This week, we watched a short film about the remote Isle of Ulva in the Scottish Highlands.  We imagined that this was our location for our Year 4 residential!  In small groups, we created our own maps of the island, plotting key features and then we recorded all our questions about our week's residential on the island.

Donald the ferryman, spotted something unusual on the shoreline after a big storm and he asked if we could help him to describe the object and predict what this object could be.  A few other islanders had likened the object to the legend of the kelpie.

Day 2

Year 3 Residential - Tattenhall 2019, by Miss Jones

Date: 20th May 2019 @ 7:23pm

What a brilliant time we have had! 

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their first residential experience at Tattenhall last Thursday and Friday. The weather was glorious on the first day so we spend as much time as possible outside. We weaved willow to make a fish sculpture, played team building games and enjoyed bouldering in pairs. After tea, we all went on the Millennium Mile walk around Tattenhall village before spending lots of time in the adventure park.  On the second day, we took part in den building and fire lighting sessions. We even roasted some sweet treats on the fire. 

All of the adults involved in the trip were amazed by the children’s determination, politeness and excellent behaviour.

Thank you to Mrs Woodington, Mrs Woodward, Mr Brown and Mrs Davies for assisting with the trip.

Thank you to everyone who supported our final Bake Sale of the academic year. There was a wonderful array of creativity on display this afternoon. The Holiday theme clearly inspired lots of you as you can see from the photographs. In total £174.95 was raised so a huge thank you to everyone who baked, bought and helped! 

 

Winners from each class will be announced on Monday.

Year 2 - Sustainable Palm Oil, by Mrs Harrison

Date: 17th May 2019 @ 5:10pm

As part of our topic on plants, Year 2 have begun to develop their understanding of sustainable palm oil through the Chester Zoo website.

Click here to go to Chester Zoo's Sustainable Palm Oil Website page.

I wonder whether Year 2 can tell you which city has become the first sustainable palm oil city in the world?

This week we have also started to develop our typing skills on the Ipads by creating posters to encourage people to buy products which use sustainable palm oil.

Attached are some photographs of the posters as well as research based homeworks. 

Year 2 - Police Officer visit, by Mrs Harrison

Date: 16th May 2019 @ 3:39pm

Year 2 had a special surprise this morning as PC Harrison came to visit and answer our questions about being a police officer.

We got to try on different types of uniform, find out more about police officers equipment and even sit in the car!

Key Steps Gymnastics competition 2019, by Miss Jones

Date: 3rd May 2019 @ 10:13am

On Thursday, Miss Jones took a group of Year 4 and Year 6 children to a gymnastics competition at the Ellesmere Port Gymnastics Club. All children had to complete a tricky floor routine and a vault. Some children were competing as a team and others were competing as individual gymnasts. The children worked so hard on memorising and perfecting their routines. I was so impressed! It was lovely to see them all enjoy themselves and cheer on all the other gymnasts. 

Our Year 4 team won their event and will progress through to the county finals in July. 

The Year 6 team came 5th in their event. 

Well done to all the gymnasts who took part and thank you to Mr Eddison and Mrs Wynne for supporting with transport.  

Miss Jones.
