We have had a fantastic day today developing our resilience and (for quite a few of us) overcoming some fears.
We started the day with some great team building exercises, with increasing challenge and difficulty – including being blind folded and having to trust our team to give us accurate directions.
Well done to Rowling and Dahl for identifying the culprits in the team game of cluedo!
Miss Bramley, Miss Dawson and Mrs Owen were so proud of all of the children for attempting the climbing wall. A lot of children did reach the top and pressed the button . . . for those who didn’t, it’s having a go that counts and we are very proud that not one child gave up and didn’t try!
Well don everyone, what a super day, and a brilliant attitude from you all!
Our values, as well as resilience, shown today:
On Friday 24th February, Class Estuary participated in a tag rugby festival at Westbury On Seven following our 6 week training with the Gloucestershire rugby coaches.
We entered 2 teams into the tournament, with both teams playing exceptionally well and team 1 even winning the whole tournament! Miss Bramley couldn’t have been prouder with the fantastic attitude and team work that Class Estuary demonstrated throughout the day, and we can’t think of a better way to represent Huntley C of E Primary school.
A huge congratulations to one of our children to be selected for showing extreme rugby skills, but also profound teamwork and sportsmanship; winning himself a lovely trophy.
We were lucky enough to leave with our winning signed rugby ball from all of the Gloucester rugby team (which is now in display on our achievements shelf in the hall), but also flags, certificates and free class tickets to a Gloucester rugby match!! The children were lucky enough to be awarded with their prizes and have signed autographs from Paddy McAllister.
Thank you so much to Mrs Mason for coming with us and looking after team 2, and for all of the parents who helped us with lifts and supported us throughout the day, it wouldn’t have been possible without you all!
Well done Class Estuary, what an achievement and what a brilliant day to be part of!
Today Class Estuary had lots of fun baking and decorating biscuits to raise money for the poppy appeal.
We had to use lots of maths skills to measure the right amount of ingredients and we learnt to follow a recipe accurately.
We spent the afternoon making our own icing and decorating the biscuits to look like poppies!
Of course at the end of the day, we sampled them to ensure they were fit for selling!!
Don’t forget to bring 30p to buy a biscuit tomorrow break time to help us raise some more money!!
If you would like to have a go at making some of these at home then you are more than welcome to follow this recipe and sell them in school.
