Year 3 and 4 visit from a Guatemalan visitor

Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to have a visit from a parent that had spent some time in Guatemala. They were lucky enough to look at and hold some Guatemalan artefacts, such as replica puppets, clothing and different food. We also looked through some different pictures from the parents trip, she explained what was being shown and what she was doing out there at the time. We also looked at some Guatemalan money and compared it to our money. She was then kind enough to answer some questions from the children and adults alike. The children really enjoyed the first hand experience she gave the children.

Year 3 and 4 trip to Cadbury World

Year 3 and 4 had a great day at Cadbury World. We learnt about the journey from cocoa bean to chocolate bar, went on a tour of the factory, visited the 4D cinema, tasted lots of delicious chocolate and bought souvenirs in the shop.

A great day was had by all. Malachy described the day as ‘epic’!

Our next step is to design and make our own chocolate products.

Year 5 trip to Swindon Steam Museum

Photos from year 5 trip to Swindon Steam Museum on Thursday 10th November. Children had great fun learning about the 2nd world war.  We got to see and touch different artefacts.  We took part in a evacuation.  However, not all the children were selected for a new home! 

The Lord Mayor comes to Sea Mills!

We were very lucky to be visited by the Lord Mayor of Bristol, Jeff Lovell, this week. To support the children’s understanding of the British Value of Democracy, the Lord Mayor talked about how he was elected and his work as a councillor in Bristol.
