What a fabulous science week we had! The children embraced every opportunity with enthusiasm and really enjoyed the healthy mind, healthy body focus.

Wednesday — We learnt about the effect of exercise on our bodies with Jennie and Jim, then they put us through our paces with some running, squats and burpies! Then some children visited the doctors surgery. We met Louise, one of the nurses and she showed us where she works, and talked to us about her job.

Thursday — We loved having company for our Wrenbury walk on Thursday, thank you to everyone who was able to join us! I hope you were energised and ready for your day just like we were. We also had a visit from Dr Phillips (guess the family connection!) who works in a hospital in Manchester. She taught us about the human body and some organs, then we each had to play a part in making a giant human body in the hall...beating hearts, lungs breathing and blood cells running very fast all the way around our body! She also brought some stethoscopes for us to have a go with and taught us about how the pupils in our eyes change in different lights.

Friday — On Friday we had an assembly with Dr Gape who came across from the doctors surgery to see us. She told us about her work and then we asked her some questions. It was very interesting and everyone learnt a lot. Then on Friday afternoon Mrs Pitchford (another family connection to spot!) came to teach us about washing our hands and how we can stop germs from spreading. She brought a light box that made our hands glow if they weren't clean and we talked about how to get in all the nooks and crannies to make sure we have clean hands and stay healthy and well.

This wonderful week was finished off with a lovely sunny Summer Fair, it was fab to see so many of you there. I hope you all got a go on the bouncy castle!

I am looking forward to seeing how you have all got on with your 5 a day challenge this week. Remember you must bring back your chart tomorrow all filled in and signed by a grown up to be in with a chance for the treat!

Base 3 have worked ever so hard this week. We began our week by celebrating the harvest at church and the children did a lovely job with their singing and reading. On Tuesday we took part in our STEM week with the whole school. We were challenged to create a system that would help to move tomatoes down the mountain in Nepal. We explored different mechanisms and materials that could be used. We...
