Miss Phillips: January 2017
On Monday 23rd January, 16 of our year 6's took part in a Dodgeball competition with other Nantwich schools. Thank you to the children who jumped in last minute to fill in gaps in our teams!
I was lucky enough to join the children for the start of the competition, which started out very well for both of our teams. The children played to the rules, ensuring they made sure the ball was active and being honest if they were caught out. Every child worked hard to aim their throws in order to hit the members of the other team. whilst also watching for balls being thrown at them and trying very hard to catch them! The children's dodging skills were excellent because they kept their eye on the game at all times.
The children were a credit to the school, the behaviour was outstanding and so was the sportsmanship, with every child being very honest throughout every game. Every child MUST be proud of themselves for how well they represented not only themselves but also our school!! Myself, Mrs Winward and Mrs Heaton are all very proud of the children, WELL DONE!!
I must thank Mrs Winward and Mrs Heaton for giving up their time to take the children to the competition, without them this wouldn't have been possible. Thank you to the parents who helped to transport and support the children during the afternoon!
Results and certificates to follow.

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
