    Trip to the SS Great Britain

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    WOW what a wonderful day we have had! Class 1 and 2 had a fabulous day aboard the SS Great Britain. We started the day with a workshop in the education centre, where we travelled back in time and help build the SS Great Britain. The crew were very impressed with how knowledgeable the children were. Once the ship was built we needed to attend the launching ceremony, so we got dressed up in more suitable attire before smashing a champagne bottle on the side of the ship. We then had a tour of the ship itself. We couldn't believe how narrow and hard the beds were. I think they will all appreciate their own beds a lot more now! After spending some time in the steerage quarters the children all decided they would much rather have been first class passengers. There were lots of dummies around the ship which really brought the story to life. Some were so realistic that some of us didn't want to go near them. The children (and helpers) did BPS proud. They represented the school brilliantly and showed great enthusiasm throughout the day. Thank you to all those who came to help, it is very appreciated.

    Trip to the S.S. Great Britain

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Yey our long awaited trip is tomorrow! All the children are very excited! We have had a talk with them about trip safety and expectations. They need a packed lunch,some have opted for a school packed lunch and some for a home packed lunch. This would be best inside a back back so the children can carry it themselves. We have talked about not bringing fizzy drinks and that reusable bottles are best so they can save some for later. They need to wear school uniform. We don't anticipate rain but if forecast changes, pack a waterproof coat in their backpack. If it's another scorcher then a sun hat and sun cream would be advisable. We aim to leave school at 9 am and return to school for 3:15 but will the school office informed of any hold-ups.

    WOW afternoon - making Brunel finger puppets

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    The children (and parents) were set the challenge of making a finger puppet resembling Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The puppet had to have side burns and his trade mark 'stovepipe' hat but these could be interpreted however they wished. I think you'd agree we had a very eclectic mix of Brunel puppets taking inspiration from a variety of sources - from leopard prints to Elton John - they were all unique and the children loved making them. Thank you all so much for coming and sharing in the children's learning.

    Trip to SS Great Berkeley

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Just a quick reminder, our trip to the SS Great Britain is fast approaching! We have to have signed permission slips for each child before we go on the trip. If we haven't received a signed slip your child will be coming home with a paper copy of the letter today. Please return it to school ASAP. It will be a brilliant experience and we are all forward to it. Mrs Anderson and Mrs Trotman

    WALT: measure using a ruler (and a metre stick)

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 have been exploring measurement this week. We started by arranging ourselves into height order. This helped us to create a bank of key vocabulary such as: long, short, shorter, tall and taller. To apply our new understanding, we spent time outside measuring different areas of the playground. We found the painted goal posts were taller than the height of the window boxes but shorter than the drain pipes. The children loved being outside and enjoyed using a metre stick to measure height.
