Group 8 - Mrs Bowden and Mrs Bennett - Buggy building, by Mrs Bowden-Pickstock
Date: 11th Nov 2019 @ 3:10pm
We had a very muddy afternoon on Thursday!! Our group enjoyed building a buggy to fit everyone on.
We really had to use our communication and team work skills to ensure everything was connected correctly. Unfortunately, we were not successful the first few times and so had to demonstrate resilience in order to complete it.

Last Day -Group Photo, by Mrs Horton
Date: 8th Nov 2019 @ 8:50pm
What an amazing three days we have had at Condover Hall. I am extremely proud of all our children as they have tackled challenges with perseverance, worked together as teams, displayed patience and kindness, organised themselves independently and behaved impeccably. As a year group they all integrated with each other so well. Many of the children told me that they have chatted to people who they don’t usually mix with at school. It is great to see new friendships forming and old friendships deepening through these enriching experiences.
It was very wet and very muddy but year 6 have had the BEST time. I would like to say a big thanks to our fantastic staff team who worked so hard to make this trip a success.
Thank for Year 6 from Mrs Horton

Our last event has been on the climbing wall. Everyone attempted the wall and were fantastic! Some made it to the top but all tried their very best.

2A & 2B transport trip, by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 8th Nov 2019 @ 4:19pm
Last Friday, the children went on their school trip to Liverpool. We began our trip at 9 0'clock, walking to Grove Road station and getting on a train to James Street. The children loved hopping on the train, going through the tunnel and then using both an escalator and a lift when we arrived at the station. We left the station and walked across the road to reach the museum of Liverpool. Children enjoyed exploring lots of the exhibitions this museum had to offer, using their senses to hear, smell, touch and see all of the different displays. We particularly enjoyed our guided tour of the transport exhibition, exploring different modes of transport from the past including: a steam train, an old car, a horse and cart, and a boat. The children loved making noises associated to each transport and suggested whether each mode of transport would be slow or fast. The best part of our guided tour was getting to sit on the more modern mode of transport, the electric overhead railway train. On this train, we had pretend tickets, wore hats and were read a story all about the railway. Finally, before we left the museum, we went up to the top floor and did a sketch of what we could see out of the window. After, we left the museum, we boarded the Dazzle ship and got off at Seacombe. All children were incredibly excited to get on this ship as we have been learning about dazzle patterns in school and have seen photos of it in school. Finally, we left Seacombe by coach, returning to school at 3 o'clock. We had an excellent day and thoroughly enjoyed continuing our learning of transport from the past. Well done to the children for their enthusiam, engagement and good behaviour throughout.

This afternoon, we had lots of fun and showed how well we can work as part of a team in our team building exercises. We were really supportive of each other and displayed great communication skills.
We also had a session on the climbing wall and learnt how to be an anchor and work the billet ropes.

Group 10 - Buggy Build and Jacob’s Ladder, by Mrs Palmi
Date: 7th Nov 2019 @ 7:34pm
Group 10 had a fantastic morning.
First, we worked in teams to build our own buggies. The rope tying was a challenge but our perseverance paid off and we managed to take our friends for a ride in the field!
Our second activity was the impressive Jacob’s Ladder. It was amazing to see all of the group aim to reach their highest point.
Group 8 - Mrs Bowden and Mrs Bennett - Thursday morning, by Mrs Bowden-Pickstock
Date: 7th Nov 2019 @ 7:33pm
This morning, group 8 enjoyed archery and wall climbing. We had to be precise to shoot our arrows and hit the target. We started with a practice round and then shot for points. Everyone worked excellently.
Next, we did wall climbing. Here there were many jobs: climber, be-layer and rope feeder. Everyone had a go and a few people made it all the way to the top! The whole group worked fantastically as a team to help, support and encourage each other.
Day two Mr Bentley’s group , by Pickering
Date: 7th Nov 2019 @ 7:29pm
A fantastic day of archery and many more activities, from climbing to buggy building the children were fantastic!
Date: 7th Nov 2019 @ 7:27pm
Mrs Rice’s group have had a fun-filled day!
We started with Jacob’s Ladder which was very tricky due to the height and how wobbly it was. Everyone had a go and showed fabulous determination.
We then moved on to abseiling. The height of the tower was no match for the wonderful children in this group! They showed wonderful team work and were cheering each other on.
Following lunch the group tried archery and were fantastic. They all loved this activity.
The final group activity was Buggy Build. It was cold and muddy but the children showed great resilience and had lots of fun.
They enjoyed their tea and headed to a campfire for the evening.
