Class 4 - We've had a busy start!

Date: 7th Oct 2022 @ 1:04pm


It has been such a busy and exciting start to the year.  The children had their first challenge day at Tarporley High School where they took part in some fantastic science and technology sessions.  They really enjoyed using the bunsen burners and creating catapults.  They are anticipating the next challenge day which is taking place next week on Thursday 13th October.

A couple of weeks after that, the children thoroughly enjoyed their residential to Ironbridge in Shropshire.  Once again I was extremely proud of this bunch as they were wonderful.  We had comments from the people working at Blists Hill about the children's interest and behaviour and one lady said, "Your children are the nicest group we have had all year!"  In addition to this, the lady at the tile factory said that she always looked forward to our visit.

While we were in Ironbridge, we visited the bridge and the toll house before walking back along a track that once was a railway line.  As I have already mentioned, we spent a whole day at Blists Hill where the children discovered more about life in Victorian times and got to experience smells, sweets and even a lesson in the school.  We were at Blists Hill for a whole 6 hours and not once did anyone express they'd had enough!  

On our last day, we went to the Jackfield Tile Museum where the children created their own ceramic tile.  We are highly anticipating there arrival back at school hopefully next week.

In addition to all this we have carried on with our learning.  In literacy we have focused on a very nasty character from our book called Grimy Nick and have created some great character descriptions about him.  In maths, we have completed our place value unit and the children have all done brilliantly.  our artwork in the style of William Morris is coming om nicely and I am looking forward to the end result and in topic we have been debating and discussing reasons why families who lived in the countryside during the Victorian era decided to leave and move to the towns.
