Life Education

On Monday and Thursday we visited the Life Education Truck to learn about our brains 'The Brainy Bunch'
We learnt about the brain, lungs, heart, muscles, stomach and intestines. We watched a short video about Alex, an eleven year old boy, to see how his brainy bunch are affected by different activities throughout a day. We also learnt about the importance of breakfast and eating the right foods.

Bishop's School Trip


We learnt a lot on our visit to Bishop's School and on the City Walk.
Here are some of our photos and comments:

             
We had to line up in two rows.
We weren't allowed to talk and had to sit up very straight
Kids were sometimes punished with a strap.

Fingernail inspection for dirt.
If you got something wrong you wore the dunces hat.



The teacher sat in front of the class with the strap on the desk.


On the City Walk we looked at historical buildings

It's great to see young people put themselves out there and want to be involved in making  our fantastic school even better.
Well done everyone.
