Owls Hit the Surf
Owls class took an enthusiastic part in Hit the Surf recently. The activity, run by the RNLI, teaches the children valuable lessons in sea and beach safety as well as introducing them to surfing techniques. The children all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and threw themselves into every activity with gusto . Passers-by would have seen them ‘rescuing’ each other from the sea and hitting the waves with many children overcoming fears and achieving new personal bests. The school would like to thank the RNLI for their continued commitment to this valuable training.
Owls turned into meteorologists following Storm Ophelia and Storm Brian before half term. The effects of the storm and the damage caused fired their curiosity and all became researchers looking into how weather is formed, including extreme weather events such as hurricanes and tornados. They then simulated many the meteorological facts they had discovered and turned scientist to test out theories, making rain clouds, whirlwind tornados, mini water cycles and even creating sunsets in a jar. Science reports, weather reports and information books all followed.
All Juniors have their first taste of a six-week golf course run by the Junior-Pro Coach at Trefloyne Manor. The first session saw the children learning correct stance and grip and saw many hitting shots that would have Tiger Woods getting worried.
The Owls Class are busy putting the final touches to the pantomime they are writing with Mrs Smith to be performed in school on December 6th and 7th. The panto which is a version of Jack and the Beanstalk, (name still to be decided on!), will involve the whole school and has not one but two giants, the traditional cow and of course a beanstalk…or two. Performances will be at 1:30 on Wednesday 6th and 5:45 on Thursday 7th December and promise to be a musical treat. Put it in the diary now!
