On Thursday afternoon, the children at Trenode took part in an Easter crafts afternoon, decorating eggs and making biscuits. This was organised by volunteers from the PTFA.
Cardinham class went on an environmentally friendly trip to Looe on Monday. On the journey, they learned about carbon friendly ways to travel, and noticed landmarks along the way.
When they reached Looe, they worked in teams to create sand sculptures, for a competition. They learned about creating symmetrical designs using natural materials.
The children in Cardinham had a wonderful time at Plymouth University on Wednesday this week.
They took part in a wide range of science activities from making slime out of sea-weed, to programming ‘robots’ on ipads and experiencing virtual reality sky scrapers!
Mrs David was amused at the fun they had with some of the ‘retro’ technology there—including a ‘Pac Man’ game.
They made friends with a ‘Student Mentor’ who helped them to get the best out of the activities.
Mrs David, Mrs Zaman and I returned yesterday from a very successful visit to Bristol, with 10 children from Cardinham class. I hope you have all seen the photographs Mrs David has been putting on Facebook, but here are some more!
On the first day, we visited Bristol Zoo, where we really enjoyed seeing all the different animals, and took part in a workshop about living in the Polar regions. We got to stroke a chinchilla and a polar bear! The next day, we went to the ‘We are Curious’ science museum and took a tour around our solar system in the planetarium. We also learned about the skills needed to become an astronaut!
After that, we crossed the river to the SS Great Britain, and found out all about crossing the Atlantic on this wonderful ship, designed by Brunel. For dinner we visited Zsa Zsa Bazaar, and at-tempted to eat them out of ice-cream! The final day was spent in Bath, visiting the Roman Baths, and dressing up as Ancient Romans. The children were a delight to spend time with—you must be very proud of them!
I hope you all had a good half-term holiday. I have been out this morning with the school council, taking some photographs of our lovely school grounds.
We will be going to an 'Ethos and Values' conference on Friday, meeting up with children from all the other Bridge schools. The children will be giving a presentation to show the others what is special about our school.
It was very clear this morning how lucky we are to have such a wonderful outdoor environment!
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
