Language Challenge Day, Den building and Pitching!

Oak class have reached the end of their first – very busy and productive – half term. It has flown by and much has been achieved. During the last week of the term we visited Tarporley High School  for a Language and Maths Challenge Day. As a feeder primary we have close links with Tarporley High School and the day was spent applying our maths and language skills. During the French session the children wrote animal simile poems. Try and translate our poem;

 Le singe est burn come un arbre,
 Le lion est jaune comme le soleil,
La chauve-souris est aussi petit comme une gomme.

Also during the week we designed and pitched our ideas for a new business to our classmates and special guests – Mrs.Maddock and Mrs.Rimmer. We studied a successful pitch from BBCs Pocket Money Pitch and used this as model to inspire us. The ideas were fantastic. As a class we particularly liked Owen’s Toaster which had a built in TV; Mrs.Rimer put in an immediate order.

UK Military School were back and we continued to develop our team work skills. This time Oak Class ventured out into the wildlife area and built dens. Soon we will be visiting Delamere Forest to build dens for our Reception buddies. Exciting times ahead.
