Cake Sale

On Thursday after school (14th March), the PTFA held an extremely successful cake sale raising £191!  The sale ran alongside our Eco Week  ‘eco bricks’ activity.  The PTFA also sold beeswax wraps so our school community can cut down on plastic waste.  Watch out for more green ideas as Sea Mills work towards it’s Bronze Eco Schools Award.

Yesterday Mrs Randall, Mr Kinnear, Mrs Swords and Mrs Phillips took a group of children on a wild adventure to Tyntesfield. They learned about what it would have been like to be a servant during the Victorian era and had a massive explore around the grounds. They discovered sculptures, dens and Mrs Randall made them walk miles – almost 6 in total and there were some bug hills!

Dressed up for Number day!

Snack, Chat and Reminisce

Year 6 interviewed older Sea Mills residents on 28th November who were attending the ‘Snack, Chat and Reminisce’ event at St Edyth’s Church.  They found out some amazing local stories which they are going to report about online.  Watch this space for a link to read them.  The children’s attitude and interest was fantastic – we have some great budding journalists!

Parents found our SPAG help station really informative during parents evening. 

Year 6 will be interviewing local residents as part of an exciting Heritage Schools project.

Today all children at Sea Mills Primary School got to meet some Axolotls. The amphibians originate from Mexico but are sadly now extinct in the wild. Soon Sea Mills will be getting their very own Axolotl as the own school pet. Why not ask your child about Axoltls as they learned many many facts!

Diversity Month

Lamchen, a Buddhist nun, visited Sea Mills as part of Diversity Month.  She led the school in a meditation, shared a Buddhist ‘Tanka Tale’ and explained some Buddhist Beliefs.  She visited each class to show some artefacts and was very impressed with the range of questions the children asked.

 

A Capoeira group came to show the whole school their amazing Brazilian gymnastic and rhythmic skills this week.  Year 3 and 4 followed up with workshops learning new music and dance skills. 

 

Mr Randall came and did some Caribbean cooking with children from Y3-Y6 as part of Diversity Month. They spent the afternoon making Jamaican patties. Mr Randall taught them two different cutting methods, the bridge and the claw. He also taught them how to make short crust turmeric pastry which is slightly yellow due to the spice turmeric.
