Whilst the weather this week caused some travel issues and we felt the cold more intensely, it didn't stop the fantastic learning across school linked to our whole school theme of WATER.

Little Wrens and Base 1 were out and about in the school grounds. Whilst on a maths treasure hunt with me on Monday afternoon, we not only explored shapes in our environment but were excited by the ice found in tubs and planters. We even found very small, circular bubbles trapped in the ice! I loved the fact that the children had made two small snow ice-people / snowmen, and left one outside and brought one inside to see which melted first. They had also added paint to snow to see what happened. Fantastic first hand learning experiences linked to our Curiosity Matters science approach at Wrenbury.

Base 2
continued with their Storm Whale in Winter story and wrote some fantastic newspaper reports about Noi's six cats going missing and the snow cat that was camouflaged in the snow.

Base 3 had been busy learning about the water cycle this week. On the day they were presenting their learning for their Learning Journey books, Wrenbury had an afternoon of rain, snow and sleet; all forms of precipitation that gave them a first hand experience and underpinned their learning beautifully!

On Wednesday afternoon, Base 4 were busy learning about the River Jordan as part of their RE focus for this half term. On Friday they were looking at Ordnance Survey maps of Wrenbury and quickly identified the canal and the river; with one child commenting that they could identify the river as it was 'meandering' rather than being presented as a straighter line (canal). I was impressed that they were using their prior learning about rivers in Y3/4 and their study of the River Nile to inform their new learning!

Base 5 undertook a P4C (Philosophy 4 Children) lesson on Wednesday and were looking at 'before and after' images of 'Climate Change' including images of receding glaciers. Mrs Charlesworth also added computer generated images — 'Fake News' — to the mix for the children to explore and consider. There was lots of fantastic discussion and debate generated.

The staff really do offer the children a relevant, in-depth and insightful approach to their learning, which the children thoroughly enjoy.

Thank you to the Wrenbury Team!

What a lovely last week of term we have had- so much learning in only 3 days! We started our week with our science experiment- the children carried out the experiments that they had planned last week. They sieved, filtered and evaporated in the hope that they could retrieve a solid from mixtures and solutions. The children were really buzzing about what they were finding. The experiment gave...
