Discovery Course at Horseworld

Yesterday was the final session of our first complete Discovery Course Programme run in partnership with Horseworld.   The horse is a unique, ideal tool to promote emotional growth and learning in young people.  Over the past few weeks, children have been learning about the wide range of skills and temperament needed to work alongside and care for horses.  Yesterday finished with some great riding skills and some horsey hugs.  Well done to all the participants on the programme.

Key Stage 1 visit to Weston-Super-Mare

Our Year 1 and Year 2 classes had a fantastic day at the beach this week.  As well as all the fun learning in the sand and sea there was still time for a tasty ice-cream treat to keep us cool in the warm sunshine.  Thank you parents for joining in with all the activities and not being afraid to get your feet wet!

Maths week

Our latest maths week was a great success.  This year the focus was ‘real-life maths’, with a particular focus on shape.

Year 3, 4 5 and 6 were all visited by STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) volunteers who ran bridge building workshops.  As well as learning about the importance of strong shapes, pupils used their measuring and calculating skills to help construct and test their bridges.

Key stage one and Foundation Stage also thought about shape.  In these classes children carried out shape hunts inside and outside the school and thought about shapes they may find in other environments outside of school.  This led to much discussion about the properties of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes.

Additional to the work on real-life shape, all classes were given a budget of £10 to buy materials for and make a product to sell at a sale at the end of the week.  The profits for each class will then be donated to the classes’ chosen charity.  The sale was a huge success, every class made a profit.  A particularly big Well Done goes to year four who raised £32 for their chosen charity, the most profit made.

Below are some photos of a selection of the many activities that took place over the course of the week, enjoy!
