Today, we have been busy learning about university life. The “Explore University” project is organised by Keele University, Staffordshire University, University of Wolverhampton and Harper Adams University and aims to help primary school children understand more about university. The children were challenged to recreate many aspects of a university using lego. Year 5 showed great resilience, teamwork and imagination throughout the morning. Well done!

Pioneer centre- We love it here!

Good evening – we are having an amazing time. Some of the fun we’ve had so far has included:

High ropes, camp fire (last night), caving, archery, climbing, zip wire and our personal favourite (well it is Mrs Vickers, Mr Pilgrim and Mrs Adams’ favourite) raft building! The children have loved their spending spree in the gift shop. We still have so much more to enjoy.

We hope you’re not missing us too much!

Please make sure your washing machines are ready for our return.

Plenty more photos will be shared soon.

Visiting our local shop.

Today we have been busy learning about the role of a shopkeeper.

We began by writing a shopping list, then took our purse and bag to the shop to buy the groceries. After reading our lists and collecting the items in our basket, we went and paid at the till. The shopkeeper gave us our change and a receipt.

We are very proud of all the children as they were extremely respectful and polite to the other customers and the shopkeeper.

Our treat this afternoon is to make and eat something yummy with our groceries (by reading the instructions).
