B Cador: October 2018
Thank you so much to all who helped walk 'the school' to St Margaret's Church yesterday and to those who joined us there for the children's Harvest Service. The church came alive being so full! We were also able to enjoy and appreciate the talents of the floral team at St Margaret's, with the church decorated for their Harvest services last weekend.
It was lovely to see so many of our children taking an active role in leading us through the service with the message of Harvest — thanks, friendships and sharing. Base 5 played around with the letters of HARVEST to share a very important message. Base 4 informed us with lots of facts about Harvests around the world and strange and wonderful fruits. Role playing and retelling the story of The Good Samaritan by Base 3, followed by the choir leading the singing of 'Sowing the seeds of friendship', was wonderful! Base 2 sharing with us all the things they needed to be thankful for.
How lovely to have our Little Wrens and new starters in Base 1 experiencing and enjoying their first big, whole school service at church — something which could have been overwhelming for them but wasn't! We loved their version of 'Big, red combine harvester' — a treat for us all! Even a few of our reception children were able to stand up in front of a full church and tell us how they made bread from grain to the loaf last week. What an achievement! Throughout, the children sang beautiful, uplifting songs and Orla led our prayers! What more could we ask for?
We have fantastic children (and staff) at Wrenbury and they certainly showed us how fantastic they were yesterday! Well done everyone!
Dare I say it...Christmas here we come!

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...
