Enjoyment For Learning

March 2024

Science Week

Science has been our focus this week.  Along with the homework tasks that the children have been presenting and all the investigations that have been taking place, there has definitely been great enthusiasm and enjoyment for learning.  Thank you to all the parents and Grandparents who joined us in our Science celebration assembly this morning. This extended to learning in the classroom with experiments including making blood and creating water clocks.

Chester Zoo

Year 3 and 4 visited Chester Zoo this week - linking to their science topic for this half term 'Living things and their habitats' in addition to their geography topic 'Why are rainforests important to us?'. They took part in a specialist workshop exploring why the rainforest is so important to both people and wildlife. It also discusses the threats to the rainforest and how every day actions such as recycling and buying sustainable products can help save this habitat.

World Book Day

As well as dressing up as their favourite book character the whole school has had a trip to Frodsham Leisure Centre after being invited to take part in Frodsham Library's World Book Day celebrations.


Snap Trap

Year 6 were invited to watch 'SnapTrap!'. This was a production/ workshop that was delivered by an outside theatre company who have created a drama performance demonstrating the importance of being safe online, using real life stories as a teaching tool. There were lots of important messages shared.



February 2024

To enhance their Art appreciation, we organised a visit to the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.  The children had the opportunity to view a range of collections including European Renaissance paintings, masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, Turner and Stubbs, Pre-Raphaelite artworks by Rossetti and Millais, Impressionist works by Monet and Degas and contemporary works by Hockney.  Some of the children questioned why there were some modern paintings amongst more traditional collections?  They were told that this is done so that they catch the eye of the observer and it enables you to compare the contrasting styles.   Overall this was an excellent way to conclude this half terms Art work.

Visit from Digital Wizards for Year 3,4,5 and 6 on Online Safety

Digital Footsteps, this was a really good idea because it made me understand that when we post lots of things online, people can trace it back.  You shouldn’t post personal information. (Sophia Year 5)

Digital Wizards presented this information in a fun and exciting way, which is really important as these are life lessons. (Stanley Year 6)

We really enjoyed the games we played. We did Breaking News, it showed us that we can’t always believe everything we read. (Jacob Year 3)

He shared lots of fun apps. (Iris Year 4)

Sometimes people send you links and if you don’t know who it is, it is best that you don’t click on it. (Sophia Year 5)

Overall, they said, we thought these sessions were brilliant, definitely 10/10 and if possible, we would give it 11/ 10.
