Water Park Day 1

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-25-2018

We’ve just finished our first day on the lake and the class had a great time!

Each group had a tour of the house and the grounds (the children are so excited about how big it is) and then unpacked in their bedrooms (again very excited).

After lunch each group took part in some problem solving activities around the grounds and then learnt how to make  a raft.  The challenge was then to race around the lake (well done Blue team for taking the win!) Children then had some challenges to complete on their rafts.

The weather is beautiful so after our raft building we all got chance to have a swim in Lake Coniston.

Everyone is now having a play outside in the sun before tea and a spot of orienteering tonight.

We’ve arrived at Coniston!

The sun is shining, the children are outside playing their first games and everyone is very excited!

I will try to update with some news any pictures every evening.  If you leave a comment, I’ll read these out to the children (they usually love them…especially cute ones with hugs and kisses)

 

Boosters Camping

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-25-2018

As a well done and thank you for all of the effort in Booster classes, we held a camping night on the school field.

Though we didn’t have much sleep, the weather was lovely and we had lots of fun out on the field.  There was also time to play games in the hall and plenty of Year 6 bucks won along the way!

Morning woke us up at 5:3o for most of the group and sadly some soggy tents.  Not to worry, Spongebob and toast in the hall saved us!

Pendle Hill

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-5-2018

Well done to our Walking Club for making it to the top of Pendle Hill.

It was a steep climb and a few stops were needed along the way, however the weather was lovely and we got all the way to the top!

Making Blood

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-5-2018

As part of our science topic we followed instructions to make ‘mock’ blood.

It was very sticky/messy work however the end results showed the layers of the blood:

  • Red blood cells
  • White blood cells
  • Platelets
  • Plasma

Dissecting a Heart

Posted by Mr Waywell on Apr-23-2018

Today we began our new topic “Blood Heart”.

Our first lesson was to really understand what a heart is and what it does.  What better way to do this than to dissect one.

Working in pairs (only the brave ones – it was too much for a few of us) we examined and cut up a lambs heart in small stages.

What did you think of the lesson?
