Head’s Blog – 26th November
Our school is very much about our community and I could not be prouder of one of our Parent Governors and her husband, Kate and Charlie. They ran the Gower Half marathon a few weeks ago, a gruelling course, with all of their sponsorship going towards our School Library fund. They raised an absolutely staggering £2,800! We cannot thank them and their sponsors enough as this is a phenomenal amount of money that has a huge impact on our small school.
On Wednesday, Willow class had another adventure when we all went to the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. We learned a phenomenal amount of information with our workshop focusing on Isotope analysis and walking around the museum. One mind blowing aspect for our children was how a scientist can analyse a tooth or a bone and identify which part of the world people are from. This is because of the mineral finger prints within our body which are left because of the food we eat and the soil that this has grown in. This information is used as the basis for our story as a person. Then the children got to be true history detectives and construct a narrative about some people from the past. Having adventures first hand is the best way for children to create a memory which their learning can then be assimilated to. Making memories is the essence of life and education, which is why we do it! Thank you to the Bells Foundation who donated money towards this trip to make it more affordable for our children. We had a fabulous day and I can highly recommend the education workshop at the museum, it was great!
Inspired by our visit to Cirencester, Willow class have been practising their sculpting skills using air drying class.
