Do you remember watching the eclipse?

It was a pretty cloudy day yet it was still amazing to see!

A huge well done for raising £167.11 on our Games Day!

Beacon Fell

Posted by Mr Waywell on Mar-30-2015

This months walking club was based around Beacon Fell.

As it was a very wet day, Mr Waywell decided to change the plan to walk up Pendle Hill and to visit Beacon Fell instead. Here he ensured everyone that they would be doing a short walk in the rain and that they could leave their lunches back on the bus…how wrong he was!

The walk was very muddy and within only  a few steps Nikita had fallen over!  As Mrs Whitehead led the way we:

  • Found an egg
  • Learned from Beth that you can tell if something is dead because it is heavier
  • Fell over
  • Walked through a very muddy track
  • Fell over some more
  • Jumped in puddles
  • Followed an instruction that said “Look for a tree near a bush” when we were in a field full of trees and bushes
  • Picked some daffodils
  •  Fell over even more
  • Jumped in puddles
  • Saw some cows
  • Scared some sheep
  • Talked to some lambs (who were saying “mummy”)
  • Fell down some muddy hills
  • Fell up some muddy hills

Finally we made our way back and had lunch in a nice warm us.  Then for some we ventured into the woods for a few games of man-hunt whilst for others they opted for the warm cafe and hot-chocolate!

This was indeed one of the wettest and muddiest so far…yet still lots of fun!

(The photos that are in order show a pretty impressive puddle jump!)

Games Day

Posted by Mr Waywell on Mar-27-2015

During Lent each class has run a Lenten Enterprise to raise money for Aid to the Church in Need.

This week was Year 6′s turn with our annual games day!

Year 6 planned their own stalls, created posters, shopped for items and worked out prices so that they can make a profit to give to charity.  We had:

  • A tombola
  • A penalty shoot out
  • Fifa
  • Bowling
  • Guess the name of the teddies/rabbits
  • Quickest to eat digestives and crackers
  • Quickest to drink
  • Face painting
  • Egg Roulette
  • Splat Mr Waywell with tomatoes
  • An Easter Egg hunt
  • A bean bag throw
  • Guess the tastes
  • A hidden sticks game

The whole school got to take part and everyone I spoke to said that they enjoyed themselves…especially Year 6!

Well done folks…you were brilliant! (Again)


Descriptive Meals

Posted by Mr Waywell on Mar-24-2015

As part of our English lessons we have been looking at developing our vocabulary through descriptive work.  This week we focused on describing our favourite meals.

On Thursday, in groups, we were given a randomly chosen meal so that we could describe the taste, smell and look of the food! The best descriptions of each meal are going to be recorded like so that they are like a Marks and Spencers advert from years ago! Keep an eye on the blog to check out the winning films!

Some meals were a lot more successful than others!

What was yours like?  Would you have it again?
