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.

Preparing to make a shelter. We're going into the woods to make our own and as it's supposed to rain later I hope they're waterproof.

Trim Trail

(viewed 739 times)
We installed an activity trail just before Christmas 2005. Again, in keeping with our aim to develop an understanding of a healthy lifestyle, this can be used by all the children fron Nursery to Year 6. We're planning to develop it for use throughout the curriculum so that it isn't seen as just play equipment but as something that can be used to develop an understanding of other subjects .... being fun at the same time.

Road Safety Skills

(viewed 1784 times)
Road Safety training and support kit on loan from the Edcation Authority. We can't get a school crossing patrol so we're training our own. They're cheaper and much more cute that the grown up version.

Exhausted but happy.

We've done the walk and come down the hill behind us.

To reach the top of this Shropshire walk there's a narrow track to navigate. Some of the children (and teachers) were rather nervous about walking along it but, to their credit, they conquered their fears and completed the walk to the reservoir that fed the stream that fed the watermill's wheel at the carding mill - hence the name of the valley: Carding Mill.

Trip to Parliament

(viewed 619 times)
After Tony Wright had been into school to celebrate the Young Enterprise award with us he invited us to visit him at the Houses of Parliament. I took a couple of trips down to have a tour of the buildings and do a bit of sightseeing. A fantastic experience.
