Fantastic Thursday!

I know that I am biased but if I was aged between 4-9 I wouldn’t want to go to any other school but Berkley School!! The WOW day was a wonderful way to start the week.

 The ‘Jumping Jellybeans’ club took place and some children have been to Forest Schools this week.

This morning  the Badgers went to the sports’ centre for their swimming lesson followed by an exciting science investigation with Mrs Langton involving blowing bubbles !!

After lunch  Badgers class welcomed Dave  and Nick who gave us a Rookie First Aider’s taster session. We spent a brilliant hour learning to apply bandages to one another’s arms and heads. We also learnt how to make a simple sling to support a painful wrist. Hopefully Dave and Nick will be able to run an after school club for us.

Then we put on our old clothes and wellies and went back up onto the field to enjoy all the activities that were built for the Wow day. We got very muddy as it has been raining a bit this week but it was great fun and we’ll be going again tomorrow!!

And – finally – after school was over – a group of children and Mrs Hirons and I stayed to a ‘Photography Club’. Uri, the photographer showed us a whole range of cameras and equipment and we found out all about them. It was really very interesting. Uri made it great fun.

Next week we are going to begin to take photos – then later we are going to mount and frame them, set up an exhibition, learn to market our product and finally try to sell them!!! All the profits going to Berkley School. I can’t wait!

What a great day.
