The weather is glorious here in North Wales and the children are all having a fantastic time together. We arrived in time for lunch yesterday and have already worked on team-working activities, orienteering and ‘low rope exercises’. This morning we used our map reading skills to climb a mountain, eating our packed lunch whilst enjoying views over Snowdonia.
Year 2 recently visited Stockley Farm. We had a great time and did lots of fun and interesting things:
- We went on a nature walk
- We fed pigs, goats and lambs
- We held cuddly, soft rabbits and guinea-pigs
- We played on the adventure playground
- We had fun on the bouncy castle
- We learnt about the dairy where the cows are milked
- We had a ride in a tractor
- We met the cows, sheep, horses and birds of prey
We hope you enjoy looking at our photos!
As you are aware from previous posts, our school has recently been involved in the Relay of Prayer event organised by Salford Diocese. Each school had to learn about a country participating in this year’s Olympic Games and St. Philip’s RC had to study Palestine. The final stage of the process was for pupils from our school to visit St. Thomas of Canterbury, where they led an assembly on Palestine and passed on the torch of prayer. Many thanks to Mrs McNeill and Mrs Aldred for planning and preparing the assembly!
Last Tuesday, our annual dance performance evening took place and was a huge success. As usual, the event sold out and most classes performed a dance which they had been working on in their weekly lessons. Pupils and parents alike look forward to this display of creativity and this year we are able to enjoy Mrs McNeill’s class’s performance again and again…
