Stratford – Day 3

June 30th, 2017 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

What a fantastic way to end our residential. We spent the day at Cadbury World where we learnt about the history of the chocolate we all love very much!

We then got to see how they mould different shapes and designs with their chocolate bars whilst enjoying our own chocolate. To top the day off we even got time to spend some of our money in the worlds biggest Cadbury Store where we may have found a great bargain or two…

We will all definitely sleep well this weekend!

Stratford – Day 2

June 30th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Another fantastic day in Stratford as we took part in our own Shakespheare workshop, giving us the chance to show off our amazing acting skills.

After building up an appetite, we then went for lunch at Pizza Express where I think we all had eyes bigger than our bellies.

We then went to the Stratford Tower to take in some beautiful views over the area; even those who were a little worried about going up at first.

We are all looking forward to Cadbury World tomorrow where I’m sure we will enjoy being around a factory full of chocolate.

Stratford – Day 1

What a brilliant first day of our residential. First we went to Mary Arden’s Farm – the mother of William Shakespeare. This beautiful farm still operates today exactly how it would have done during the 1500’s.

We then went to William Shakespheares birth place before enjoying a night time walk, exploring the sights and history of Stratford Upon Avon.

Pen Licence

Well done to these children today who received their pen licence. I set the challenge to Sycamore Class to see how many of the class can achieve a pen licence before they leave and these have proven to me that they deserve it!

Well done guys! Can we finish the year with even more?

DARE

This week in our DARE lesson we looked at how non-verbal communication is just as important as verbal contact. We did some role play dramas and to show our facial expressions and gestures for didn’t scenarios or emotions.

 

We did role plays for: angry, sad, surprised, sarcastic, and not caring.

These are some of the faces for each one.

Monopoly

May 12th, 2017 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Today, year 6 were set a project to create their own monopoly boards based on important buildings and features from across Nottinghamshire. The children were engaged throughout and loved researching some of their favourite places to visit in our county.

We had a range of different counters and punishments for landing on properties and we then had the chance to play a quick game, although there was definitely some dodgy bankers handing out some money…..

This was a fantastic project to end the week with and the whole year group worked together brilliantly to create their board games. Well done year 6!

DARE

In our DARE lessons this week, we have been looking at stressful situations and how best to deal with these in a mature and sensible manner. We were able to discuss what sort of things we do when we are stressed and how these help us deal with situations that are difficult.

What stratergies do you use for stressful situations?
