Roald Dahl Day 2019
Today in KS2 we solved a Roald Dahl riddle. It was good fun working together to find
that the solution was an anagram of the famous author's surname.
World Oceans Day is held every year on 8th June to raise awareness of the vital importance of our oceans and the role they play in sustaining a healthy planet. A global celebration, it looks to bring people and organisations together across the globe in a series of events highlighting how we can all help protect and conserve the oceans. As part of our focus on global learning, we marked World Ocean Day in school this year on Friday 7th June, with the children in KS2 focusing on a theme much under discussion in school over recent weeks - Plastic pollution. The children in KS2 started the day with a special assembly which then lead into a Science lesson about global water percentages and issues. They further deepened and expressed their understanding of this and of the impact of plastic pollution in our oceans through artwork.
Condover Residential Years 5 & 6
The children had a fantastic time at Condover Hall and have been very lucky with the weather.
On their first afternoon they took part buggy building, vines and climbing wall and completed a run around quiz before settling down for a peaceful nights sleep.
Day Two included rocket launch, rope walk and initiative exercises, amongst other things. The evening was rounded off with a game of 'real-life' Cluedo at the big house, with Mrs Humphrey dressed up as Charlie Chilli, Mr Stotesbury as Harry Hotdog and Mrs Williams as Max Mustard!!
On Day 3 the children completed a sensory trail, abseiling, laser quest, grid stones, tunnelling and circus skills, rounding off the day with a nocturnal safari before bedtime.
Day 4 began with waffles and maple syrup for breakfast, which set the children up for a very active day of team challenge, archery, aerial challenge, initiative exercises and some more abseiling. The children finished the day with a camp fire under the stars.
