HEATH HAYES PRIMARY SCHOOL'S BLOG
Welcome to our online journal - a window on our world.
'Bringing Learning Alive'
Our vision statement is to Bring Learning Alive and blogging encapsulates our aim to make learning exciting, up to date and fun.
You are visitor number:
This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.
Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
BLOGGING'S GREAT FUN
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

Do you like our hats? We were going on a minibeast hunt in the trees around school. We made the hats to protect our heads from the dropping creepy crawlies! We found larvae on the back of a leaf and not very many but some minibeasts. We identified them by using a key.

WOW! These pots are really fantastic. The children have designed, made and decorated them taking a great deal of care and attention. They used Information books, video and Greek Myths to help them to decide which story to tell on their pot.

I was wrestling against Cassie in Yr5. She was really strong for her age. I had a really fun day I wish I could do it again.

In this picture we were trying some Ancient Greek food and tasting some 'wine'. After we tried the food and wine we had to write our opinion of the apperance, smell, taste and the texture. I tasted the 'wine', the greek salad and the feta cheese!Tia year 6

We all had a fun day doing all the activities e.g tasting ancient Greek food and making Medusa masks which we had a competition for. I won!
In the afternoon we had an olympic games but, sadly, I didn't win.Charlotte Year 6

This is me with my greek pot and working with clay.
We were doing this because we were learning about the ancient Greeks and how they used clay. We spent a day learnng 3 ways of making pots (pinch pot, slab pot and coil pot). I made my pot using a coil base and a pinch pot; it took me 2 attempts to make it. The 1st time the top was too heavy and wouldn't stand up, the 2nd time it worked because I made the top smaller. After it dried I painted it and drew my design on. It shows the battle between Medusa and Perseus.
