Fruit Salad Project

During their maths lessons this week 4.3 have been working on a fruit salad project. This involved looking at different ingredients that they could use in a fruit salad and gathering data about the different fruits and recording it in a class pictogram. They also worked out how much the ingredients would cost at a local supermarket and whether they could afford to buy all of them during our trip.

On Thursday the 21st of May we went to Tesco’s to buy our ingredients. The first challenge 4.3 faced when we got there was finding the fruit and veg section, which was not located at the front of the supermarket.  Every group found this independently and once they had located this section they then had several problem solving activities to complete. Each group had been given only £3 leaving some groups unable to afford all of their ingredients. 4.3 had to work together to find different ways to afford all of the ingredients the class needed for their fruit salads. Their excellent team work meant that the only fruit they had to put back was the packet of blueberries. They then had to locate the tills and pay for their fruit. Everyone was able to pay for their products independently and they all had a great time bagging up their ingredients.

When we returned to school they took part in a fruit salad competition and the group that made the “best fruit salad ever” won a prize. Everyone had a fantastic day and really enjoyed their trip to Tesco’s.

Sea Life Centre Trip

On Friday 8th May our Early Years children went on a visit to the Birmingham Sea Life Centre. Children spent lots of time watching the newest addition to the centre – the penguins! They loved seeing how the penguins moved around on the ice then jumped into the water for a refreshing swim. They were able to see the penguins as they swam about due to the underwater viewing area which ensured the children got up close and personal with their feathered friends. Daniel wanted one to put in our school swimming pool!

After spending lots of time watching the penguins we then went to go and explore what else the sea life centre had to offer and encountered a variety of different types of fish. We got the chance to touch a crab and explore what was living in the rock pools. We saw tropical fish of all colours, wobbly jellyfish, slow seahorses, scary sharks and spiky stingrays. We then headed to the underwater tunnel and watched the fish and sharks swim over our heads. We also got an enormous surprise when we saw two gigantic turtles- they were big enough to use as a school bus! We had a fantastic lunch then headed back to see our favourite creatures again and some of us visited the 3D cinema to learn more. By the time the buses came to get us we were exhausted and some of us fell asleep on the trip back. We had a fantastic time on our visit and would like to go back soon.

Primary Residential

On the 28th April some pupils from Meerkats, Monkeys, Butterflies, Turtles and Giraffes set off for the Pioneer Centre for a week. For some of us this was our second trip. The Pioneer Centre in Kidderminster is a very exciting place with many things to do, a great place to stay and the food was fantastic! We had so much fun that the time flew by. We sang songs around a campfire and had a great laugh playing games like the banana challenge. Once we had unpacked and settled in, it was wall to wall fun. Most children liked the big bounce and the visit to the cinema. There was also a disco night and the excitement of rock climbing. By Daniel

I climbed very high and I gave the lion a high 5 at the top and jumped down. I slept good. I loved eating marshmellows around the camp fire. The food was good and the staff were good. I want to go again. By Amari

My favourite part was abseiling as I felt I accomplished something I’ve never done before.
