The children had an amazing time today,despite it being a little breezey when we arrived. Luckily we did not get blown away when leaving the coach to enter into The Deep! They were fantastic throughout the whole day.
Throughout the day, the children had opportunities to explore the different zones at The Deep. They were able to observe the penguins, the variety of fish within the coral reef as well as the cheeky tiger sharks and many more.
During the workshop, the lady who was delivering it, was absolutely amazed with how much the children knew already and the correct vocabulary they used. Not only that, they also had some brilliant questions to ask to enable them to consolidate their learning further.
During the dive expedition, the children were able to observe how the staff take care of all the creatures through cleaning the tanks, feeding and ensuring the water has the correct amount of salt in.

Scientific workshop on the Coral Reef
The children have been busy designing and making their 3D model of their chosen sea creature. They have also been busy with researching to write a fact file to go with their model. Through making they showed great determination and commitment when solving problems that arose along the way.
The whole schoool took part in celebrating the special Royal wedding. In the afternoon, the children sat outside to take part in a street party with the amazing contributions of food from both staff and parents. Afterwards, the children then took part in games in the wonderful sunshine.
During this session, the children were developing a number of cricket skills. The first exercise involved working in teams of four where they were practising running in between the cones to then tap the line with the cricket bat before runnning in between the cones again. The other exercise was applying their running to a short game of quick cricket where they had to
During the third week, the children began with developing their quick response with the cones through working with a partner. They had to listen carefully to the instructions given and could only pick the cone up when the word 'cone' was called out. The second exercise was practising their batting and fielding skills where they were split into two team, one fielding and one batting. During this activity, they had three balls to hit and the fielders had to wait until the final ball had been hit before they go could collect the balls. As they were fielding, the batting team could collect runs from running from wicket to wicket until all the balls had been returned ready for the next team member. After everyone had had a turn they swoped overThe children have been busy developing the skill of batting the ball and running to the wicket before moving onto the next team member. It is a quick version of the cricket game. They had to run whether they had hit the ball or not. With this in mind, they had to ensure that they had their running shoes on in order to get to the wicket before the ball did.
Wow, the children worked together as a team to accomplish and succeed in reaching the goal of a mile. They chose their way to achieve it, either by running, jogging, side step or walking round the field. The whole of the staff team are incredibily proud of each and every one of them. Well done, keep reaching for the stars.
