Plenty of photos to follow, but first please take the time to read some of our pupil contributions to this mammoth end of term Blog…
We have been using different writing activities to record some of their thoughts and reflections about all the fantastic events that have been going on in school this term.
Here are some excerpts:
‘Year 3 Travel Back in Time To Meet Mary Anning by Isla H
On Wednesday, 14th March 2018, Year 3 from Welton Primary walked a to Midsomer Norton Library to watch a show about fossils.
‘As One’ theatre company put on a fabulous, informative and fun performance. The children enjoyed learning about Mary Anning’s life. This performance was funny but you learn at the same time.’ (Isla H)
‘The play was about an historical figure named Mary Anning who was the person that discovered fossils. At one point, we got to handle the artefacts…'(Anouk H)
‘…Mary Anning was a very poor girl and when she was older, Joe (her brother) found a big head of an Ignosaurus. Then, Mary searched around and found the rest of the body. This is what first got her interested in fossils.’ (Charlie O’D)
‘The actors were really in character and the children got to feel the fossils. Apparently, Mary got struck by lightning as a baby but she survived.’ (Phoebe M)
‘…The actor who was playing Joseph said that the fossils were like ‘devil’s toes’. The children really liked that bit. Pupil Daisy Pitchell said, ‘The show was hilarious.’ (Daisy P)
We were allowed to hold the artefacts. Here’s a list of artefacts: fish dung, ammonite and other fossils . Year 3 loved the play so much they wanted to see it again.’ (Max C)
After the show there were questions and if you got a question right, you got a prize. Luckily, there were enough crayons for everyone (Year 3 were delighted). (Harry S)
On Wednesday, 21st March, the whole of Welton Primary School did a climb to raise money for the PTFA. We climbed up a climbing wall which was in the car park. Our school climbed higher than the height of Snowdon! (Jayden Sobey)
‘It looked scary at first, but if you didn’t look down, it felt like you were close to the ground.’ (Millie Burchill)
‘I got half way up. It felt a little bit scary but I’m glad that I did it.’ (Abi M)
‘I got all the way to the top. I felt like a hero when I reached the buzzer.’ (Harry S)
Five children managed to get to the top of the climbing wall. I think they did really well’ (Kieran)
Thanks for supporting the Kingfishers with the Invention Convention challenge. There were some wonderful models and diagrams.
First place in the class challenge went to the Silk sibling effort, a perspex bed time story book holder. Second place in the family challenge went to the Kiernan family with their super heater cooler device.
Please continue to read, spell and do Times Tables Rock Stars and other times table learning activities.
During the Easter holidays, we would like the children to write something of their choice. It could be a story, a letter to a real or fictional character, a book or a film review, a poem. Whatever they feel inspired to write. We look forward to reading their work.
Please finish Section 3
Happy Easter to you all. See you next term.
