Fire, Fire!

Mrs Stillwell’s class had an amazing time at Longton Fire Station. Thank you to everyone there for making it such a wonderful, memorable day. Please watch our video to see all of the amazing things that we did!

Stone Age Pottery!

In the Spring Term, we have been learning all about the Stone Age! As part of our topic, we have visited Hanley Pottery Museum where the children were able to look at real artefacts from the Stone Age!

We have created our very own Stone Age pots using clay and other natural materials! The children are all really excited to bring their pots home tomorrow and already have many ideas for how they intend to use them!

Thank you for a lovely morning Year Three!

Year 1 go to The Brampton Museum.

We have been learning all about old toys in Year One and so we decided to go to The Brampton Museum to have a look at some. There were some that we could touch and others that were behind glass. We had a fantastic day and we learnt so much more about the toys that our Grandparents and even our Great Grandparents would have played with. Please take a look at our blog to see some of the things that we saw and did.

Florence Nightingale.

We have been learning all about Florence Nightingale this half term and we have been looking at how nursing has changed since Florence was a nurse, but also how lots of things have stayed the same. To help us, we dressed up as Florence and we answered lots of questions pretending to be her. Nurse Sarah also came in to help us find out more about nursing and she answered lots of questions that we had as well. She brought in lots of things that she uses to look after her patients to show us. We now know lots about how important Florence was and still is today.

Our Very Special Visitor!

What a great afternoon we had in Year One! First of all we had a party and then we all went to see Santa! He gave us all an early present because he said that we had all done so well throughout the year – especially in school! We then carried on the party by eating lots of party food. Have a look at our blog to see what a great time we had!

Year Two Visit Cosford

Yesterday we had a lovely trip to Cosford RAF Museum! The children enjoyed looking at lots of different planes and discovering how planes work through lots of Scientific investigations. We were extremely lucky to see the Spitfire which was designed by Reginald Mitchell (who we will be learning about later in the term) and to try on different pilot outfits from World War One and Two.

Harvest Assembly

A big thank you to all the parents, carers and friends of the children who came to watch our assembly this morning!

But most of all a GREAT BIG Thank You to all of the children who have been practicing their lines all week!

Farm to Fork

On Tuesday, we had a lovely trip to Tesco where we learned about all of the different types of food and how they are made. We looked at the ingredients needed to make bread, the different colours of fruit and vegetables and the different kinds of fish available. We enjoyed feeling the freezing temperatures of the freezer and the chilled temperature of the fridge.
