Year 5 Remembrance Day Experience

November 11, 2019

Year 5 walked up to St Bart's church for a Remembrance Day experience. The children were told stories of people from Penn who fought in the war and the chaplain who prayed and supported the troops. The children read letters and held tokens the families had kept all these years and had chance to reflect and pray and understand the meaning of peace in our world.

Year 5 trip to Blists Hill

November 05, 2019

The Year 5 children enjoyed a wonderful day out exploring the streets of a Victorian village. They went into a variety of shops and talked with the workers about what was on sale and how it was acquired. They exchanged money at the bank for old money and spent it in the sweet shop and bakers buying delicious treats. Each child also took part in a candle dipping activity using the different colours of molten wax to create a rainbow coloured candle. There was a quick trip to the fairground where some children experienced Victorian style rides and others tried their hand at old Victorian fairground games. It was a really great day out and has enhanced their knowledge of what it was like in Victorian times.

Fine Motor Activites

November 05, 2019

Fine motor development is an important part of the early childhood years. In order to learn how to draw and write, the hands must be strong enough to hold writing tools.  Fine motor is also necessary for independence. Think about zipping a coat, buttoning trousers, opening a door, getting a glass of water. These all require fine muscle control.
