From Sheffield steel to sinking puts! On Wednesday, Y1 and Y2 had a fantastic visit to Kelham Island Museum and Paradise Golf. The children learned about the history of the steel industry, explored workshops and found out about the different crafts that Sheffield is famous for. The museum brought to life the history of the city, as we travelled back in time to experience life and work during the Industrial Revolution.
We also walked along the cobbles of Little Mesters street and discovered where the name of the local pub in Anston came from. Finally we enjoyed roleplaying life in a 1916 house. We all decided that we prefer the baths that we have today!
After lunch, we popped over to the other side of the city to perfect our golf swing and evaluate the Paradise Golf course. This was in anticipation for designing and producing our own mini golf course of Anston and the area for our final event. Watch out for more details of this activity coming soon.
Robins and Chaffinches launched their new topic today with a fun-packed Wow Day. During this term we will be learning about our local area, discovering areas of interest, identifying important buildings and learning about local history. The children were very excited when they found out that during the term, we will be designing and building our own mini golf course, which will incorporate buildings found in Anston and Dinnington. Today we started our project by venturing out into our local area and looking at local buildings, including identifying some of our own homes on the way. Back at school, we started making models of the buildings that we saw on our walk and we had our first taste of playing golf. At the end of the term we will be inviting parents in to school to play golf and to evaluate our ‘Mini Anston’ golf course.
Children in Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches have had a wonderful week. With parties, pantos and even a visit from Santa!
The children were extremely well behaved on our trip to see Jack and the Beanstalk and loved all of the cheers, claps and boo’s!
It’s been a wonderful week…oh yes it has! 😉
In our science lessons last week, Robins had lots of fun learning about the five senses. We went outside into our fabulous school grounds to carry out an Autumn sense walk. We heard the crunching of the leaves under our feet, we saw the multi-coloured leaves, we felt the rough bark and we smelt the damp evergreen trees. When we got back into the classroom we used our senses once again to describe popcorn. The sound of it popping in the pan, the feel, the smell, the sight and of course the taste of it too – delicious!
Children in Robins and Chaffinches have been busy learning about where food comes from. As part of this they have made fresh bread and made a delicious fruit salad.
