The Science Prefects (Madeleine and Emily Walker) have been helping Mr Sainsbury with his microscopes. They taught reception how to use the microscopes. They called in help from Izzy and Theo to go to a science exhibition in Trowbridge. HOWEVER, there was a catch... they had to teach others about how to use microscopes and set up their own stall. They took it in turns to run the stall so that they could all go off and explore the other exhibits. Mr Sainsbury said that they were extremely interested, knowledgeable and approachable meaning that their stall was very busy. The children took the ipad with them and were able to capture some of the excitement. There were lots of things to discover such as: spiking sticks into balloons without them bursting, strength in 3D shapes (set up by Dyson), Bloodhound- looking to the future, lava lamps.... the list goes on and on. The children's favourite exhibit however was the robots!

We had a wonderful morning making our artifacts for our museum exhibition. The children worked hard creating Ancient Egyptian jewellery and thought carefully about the 'story' behind them as well as the presentation of the exhibition. Thank you to all of you who managed to pop in to see it- I hope that you enjoyed it!

“And now, the end is near, and so we face the final curtain...”

 

Wow, wow, wow! What a fantastic week. The sun has mirrored the warmth of kindness of your children. They have challenged themselves beyond their wildest dreams and they are all extremely proud of themselves. What an incredible bunch of young people. This chapter maybe over but our adventure together is just beginning! Get some rest this weekend I will be raring to go bright and early on Monday morning!

“I Will Survive!”

 

We learnt how to survive on an ‘island’. We learnt how to light a fire using a ‘flint and steel’ from a tinder box. Our hardest challenge was keeping the fire ‘fed’ by finding an endless supply of suitable wood- this required a lot of tenacity! At the same time, they had an ‘air drop’ of provisions that they then had to prepare for their team whilst keeping the fire going. Then they had to prepare for the raging storm that was fast approaching (and surprisingly local to about a metre square!) by building a shelter for the team. The day drew to a close with the infamous ‘Nightline’- the ultimate challenge into trusting their friends and believing in their own ability. 

 

May I take this moment to say how impressed we are with their humour, positivity, kindness and manners. You should be very proud of them all.

 I would walk 500 miles ...” (not quite!)

 

Well the morning brought well rested children! All went to sleep brilliantly and slept well, meaning that we could really embrace today’s challenge of a serious hike that was navigated by the children. They learnt to read Ordinance Survey maps and to use a compass to lead us through the amazing countryside surrounding Braeside. The children were in good spirits throughout- we were out from 10.30 am- 5.30pm! They also enjoyed learning some incredible history of The Battle of Roundway Down. Dinner was shepherd’s pie and lemon crunch (some children had thirds!) and they are now enjoying the grounds of this spectacular place before we start our evening challenge.

Splash splash!

 

We have had a fabulous first day! Serious 3 hours of paddling... and one accidental capsize from Miss Sealey’s boat! All occupants were laughing and were quickly joined by the rest of their classmates. All dry and eaten a hearty tea of roast pork and crumble.  They have enjoyed exploring the grounds by torchlight, participating in an orienteering challenge. Perfect children ... so far!
