They say school is all about experiencing different things; getting blown off the side of a coast by horizontal rain is definitely one of them!
Although I think most of the children were more excited about watching a movie on the coach at the start of the day, they quickly fell into life as an evacuee in WW2. They were fantastically behaved all day and showed their manners and a lot of knowledge to make this day a success. The leaders at Nothe Fort commented how it was such a pleasure to have a group who were fully involved in the day. A HUGE thank you to all of you for your fantastic efforts in dressing up! You all looked amazing! You can see a video of our day above.
Back in school, we were working hard at writing and editing our recounts of the trip; carrying on with our maths and science work; as well as starting to prepare for Christmas... although it was far too soon for Christmas music!
On Friday afternoon, the children explained and played their maths games. These were all fantastic, with no game the same. A lot of hard work and thought has clearly gone into these and it paid off with the enjoyment on children's faces whilst playing them and listening to the positive feedback at the end. Well done to you all and hopefully we will have more time next week to play them too!
Next week promises to be another action-packed week with Nativity practice at the church (Year 6 - get learning your lines!); Dance Your Socks Off are coming in to introduce our dance routine; the Shakespeare Company are coming into school to perform one of their plays for us and a few of you will be competing for Blagdon Primary School in the first swimming gala of the year!
Have a relaxing weekend and get ready to go again next week!
Keep Right On!
