Enjoy the photos of our Refugee Week work and learning inspired by Kate Milner's story, My name is not refugee. Each Base focussed on a question in the story.
Base 1 focussed on the question 'What is the weirdest food you've ever eaten?' and decided that they would welcome a refugee by giving them food. They decided to bake scones and made sure that every one in school was given one.
Base 2 focussed on the question: 'What would you take?' and packed a suitcase with the belongings they felt they would take if they had to leave their home suddenly.
Base 3 considered the question: 'Do you think you could live in a place where there is no water in taps and no one to pick up the rubbish?' and created fantastic art work on canvasses with their personal responses.
Base 4 were posed the question 'How far could you walk?' from the story and felt that there was a deeper, hidden meaning to this simple question. They began to pose their own questions...Is water or love more important for life? Do you have success if no-one knows about it? Through P4C (philosophy 4 Children) they delved deep inside themselves to answer searching and challenging questions. They created art work based on the 'Mind's Eye'.
Also on the display are photos from a photographic exhibition #Iwelcome. We welcome at Wrenbury Primary School; learning inspired by fantastic, thought provoking, age appropriate teaching confirms for them that not only do 'We all matter' but everyone matters at Wrenbury and in our world.
A huge thank you for inspired teaching and learning led by all our staff and to Mrs Taylor and Mrs Clarke for helping showcase a wonderful week of learning.

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...
