Celebrating 25 years of World Book Day

On Thursday 3rd March St. Lawrence staff and pupils celebrated 25 years of World Book Day. We had a wonderful day reading books and taking part in a range of activities linked to texts. During the afternoon pupils from all classes took part in a ‘family’ day whereby the children were mixed. It was wonderful to see the older children working collaboratively with younger children and we firmly believe that they all learn new skills by this way or working.
As part of our celebrations children entered a ‘Book Scene’ competition and have been creating some marvellous box themes of favourite stories. We have been overwhelmed with their creativity and how much effort pupils have put in to this work. Please see below some of the amazing work created.

Class 1 work this week

Bea decided to make a space poster/picture. She decided that exploring space was important scientifically, and that there are many innovations that come from this and because of it. “astronauts are very clever and brave”

Paramedic in the making!

Well done to Darci for completing this activity pack at home and working hard on our ambition for the future.

 

 

Class 3 Expedition to the Wrekin

Yesterday, as part of our Shackleton and Antarctica topic, Class 3 went on an Expedition to the Wrekin. The day started with a visit to Arthog Outreach to kit the children out in appropriate Expedition gear. The Class was split into three groups and each group made their way 407 metres towards the top of the Wrekin ‘off-road’ using maps and compasses. We had lots of stops on the way, where our Expedition leads talked about the planning, communication issues and general struggles that Shackleton faced. Team work was key, just like it was for Shackleton, and children worked together and encouraged each other, especially in the steep climbs! We had lunch amongst the nature, where children understood the lack of luxury that Shackleton and his team also would have faced.  All three groups, triumphantly, reached the summit and enjoyed the 360 degree spectacular views. A brilliant day was had by all. Well done to all of our Class 3 explorers!
