Stem Challenge day 2018

Today Chestnut Class had great fun designing and building an electronic car as part of the RAF STEM challenge. We then tested them in the hall to see which was the fastest. Well done to Lexie and Gracie who are through to the next round of competition at Fairford Air Show in July.

Hello Owls,

I know we are all busy getting ready of our summer performance and learning your parts.  I have every confidence you are going to be great.

To help you along I have found some things on You Tube that may be helpful, so have added links onto a page so that you too can view them.

Most of the songs are available with words on the screen, so if you have a song you are starring in, you may wish to use this to practise at home.

I also discovered several versions of the play being performed so you might like to use these to help you understand the whole story.

I hope it helps a little

Good Luck learning all your parts

Ms Wyatt

Avon Tyrell Thursday 22nd March

Hi everyone,

A quick message on our final full day at Avon Tyrell. We have had another great day. After a filling cooked breakfast, all four groups did raft building together. Amazingly no one fell in, even with most groups standing up on their rafts and singing ‘heads, shoulders, knees and toes’!

After that we split up to do various other activities including zip wire, high ropes, canoeing, abseiling, shelter building and archery.

We finished the day with a fantastic camp fire with toasted marshmallows and a talent show.

Once again the children have impressed us with their enthusiasm and determination. They have encouraged and supported each other in the more challenging individual tasks and have also displayed superb teamwork in the group activities.

We aim to leave tomorrow at around midday and should arrive back at approximately 3pm. The school office will confirm timings with parents when we’re on the road.
