Goodnight from Robinwood

We have had an amazing day and the children have all achieved some amazing things by stepping out of their comfort zone.  Tea has just been eaten, and the children are playing a few games with our instructor before bed.  Keep checking our blog for more photos and updates tomorrow.  Mr Lane

Robinwood update

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the first of our updates from Robinwood. We arrived here just before lunch and spent an hour familiarising ourselves with our accommodation and then had our dinner.  Since then the children have been enjoying activities such as climbing, zip wires, high ropes and the trapeze.  We’ve taken lots of pictures but are limited in what we can upload from here, so we will just put up a sample, and load the rest on our return to school.  Everybody is happy and having a great time – feel free to comment on the blog and I will read them to the children.  See you soon!  Mr Lane

Year 6 science workshop

Today Year 6 took part in a science workshop for their new topic of electricity.  We looked at electrical safety, the history of  the use of electricity and creating and constructing circuits to achieve specific goals.  You can see the pictures below:

Year 6 Theatre Production Workshop

Today the children watched the production of Alice in Wonderland from MM Theatre Productions.  Following the fantastic show, the actors gave Year 6 a workshop in all aspects of theatre production including characters, costumes, scenery and stage directions.  It is hoped that this will inspire the children and help them in our own end of year production later on this year.  You can see pictures from the workshop below:

Christopher Columbus Role Plays

As part of our ‘Discovery topic’, children have been researching Christopher Columbus and his Voyage of Discovery.  They then used their research, to present a game show in pairs where they acted as the interviewer and Christopher Columbus and presented the information that they have discovered in a question / answer session.  You can see the pictures below:
