Busy at Parracombe

Posted: May 23, 2021 by: Harmony Constant (harmony.constant) on: Celebrating Learning

Oaks class have been busy this week designing the new mural for the school as well as producing some fantastic writing! The children have loved merging geography and English together! They researched the adventures of Amy Johnson, plotted her route to Australia and thought about the challenges and difficulties that she faced. They tried to put ourselves in her shoes and wrote diary entries.

 Forests class have worked hard on their scientific enquiry skills, investigating the different properties of materials. They designed their own investigation, debugging along the way to produce some accurate results. The class wrote some fabulously balanced arguments titled 'Should parents be allowed to take their children on adventurous holidays during school time?'. We also wrote some SOS messages in a bottle as Michael in our story of Kensuke's Kingdom has just been washed ashore on a desolate island!

The children also took part in a sporting event hosted by Ilfracombe Academy. They enjoyed the circuit training and we even saw the sun for a minute or two!
