Neil Bratchpeice, Sarah-Jayne Judge and Alba Abad Fernandez came into school this afternoon to run a comic book session. Neil and Sarah-Jayne explained some of the features of developing a character and the children gave Neil their ideas for our very own class character. It was amazing to see what Neil created for us. We also had a chance to draw a cartoon of our own, which we will finish next week.
This morning we had a really exciting workshop with Emma Chittick. She taught us about renewable energy and then we had to make a LEGO wind turbine. At the end of the lesson we tested all the turbines to see which produced the most energy. Kathryn and Isla WON!!!
This afternoon while the P6s were doing Bikeability, the P7s did a fantastic job of cleaning out the pond. It had become really overgrown. Now there is lots of room again for the frogs and next year’s frogspawn 🐸
Ethan threw himself in to the task “It was really fun, especially going in.”
Anders said “ I really enjoyed it, we cleared out half of the pond.”
Hannah said “It was fun and it was really messy.”
Fiona said “It was fun because I didn’t get wet!”
Lena liked it because she got a wet bum!
Roma liked it because it was stinky.
Esther thought that it was fun to clear it out but it was stinky though!
Isla thought it was fun to make a huge pile of the vegetation from the pond.
Elijah thought the weeds were quite tasty…not really!!!
On Friday 10th September the P7s and Ms Scanlan had a rocky adventure with Rob at Scatness. Everyone challenged themselves with a look over the high cliffs, explored the rocky beach, searched for (and found – thank you Leighton) the geo cache, explored the Iron Age building, walked across the land bridge (without using our hands!), had a mindful moment and finally went on a rock hunt. We even tried a bit of sea lettuce!
As always we had a great day – thank you to Rob – and we’re looking forward to the next one already 🙂
