  • Blood Smoothies

    Published 14/09/18, by Ceri Thomas

    This half term Year 6 are learning about the circulation system. We started by exploring the components that make up our blood. The children concocted blood smoothies using strawberries, marshmallows, sprinkles and fruit juice. 

    The strawberries represent the red blood cells.

    The marshmallows represent the white blood cells.

    The sprinkles represent the platelets. 

    The fruit juices represents the plasma.

    See if your child can remember the function of each component!

  • Our last day at Kingswood

    Published 10/11/17, by Megan Thomas

    The children are now busy completing their last activity here at Kingswood.

    After an action packed day yesterday, with many children showing lots of resilience and determination, we put on our dancing shoes and hit the dance floor! Miss Thomas and Mrs Thomas even showed the Kingswood instructors how to do the dance for Saturday Night properly!!!

    This morning, we had an extra treat and had some birthday cake to celebrate Hayden and Isabelle's birthday. We have been shelter building and some of us have braved the zip wire. Special mentions to Evan for climbing to the top and facing his fear of heights and Dylan and Cameron who were very unsure but ended up zipping down the zip wire!

    We are looking forward to one last lunch before getting onto the coach- where the teachers are hoping the children (and themselves) can get a bit of sleep! We look forward to seeing you all soon.

    Published 08/11/17, by Megan Thomas

    Group F1 have had an action packed morning learning Archery and tackling Jacob's Ladder.

    Children showed great team work this morning when they were helping and encouraging each other during archery. It appears Anisa is an archer in the making! The group then had great fun taking on Jacob's ladder before having a well deserved lunch.

    They are currently making their way around the night line course before getting on their wellies and heading to the coast.

    The children managed to get to sleep fairly quickly last night after a busy evening of activities and karaoke. They are looking forward to their film night this evening.
