Autumn Term Blog

In the first term we have done many enjoyable activities and have been on plenty of school trips already.

At the start of this term, we got invited to the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. We went because of the litter pick that we took part in as of 'Keep Britain Tidy', where we won the competition ln year 5. On this trip, which we got invited to, we met Chris Packham and his filming crew. He introduced us to lots of new marine life animals and notified us about a big message which was plastic in our oceans and the effects it can have on us and sea creatures. We experienced a lot of new things like touching a starfish, walking through a sea tunnel and a 4D cinema.

A few weeks later, we attended our residential trip to Whitehall. We stayed over 2 nights at Whitehall and did lots of different activities such as abseiling, zip wire,stream scrambling, ropes course and climbing wall. At the start of the trip, we got put into dorms (bedrooms) and everyone was with their friends even though we didn't choose who we were with. The food was quite good at Whitehall, but the pudding was better!

Overall, the start to year 6 has been incredible and we have had plenty of fun already and we are sure there will be lots more to come.

    The sea life centre was fun when we saw the animals get fed and the penguins were cute. The star fish was slimy when we touched it.

    You are very right we have been on a lot of trips my favourite was Whitehall because how they learnt you how to be independent and dorms were really fun and I was put with all my friends . Sea life centre was fun too, we got to see penguins and touch starfish and I liked meeting Chris packham he was really honest and made me change my mind about recycling and the affects on plastic on the ocean

    Alexis is typing, I loved Whitehall because I had amazing experience at all types of different things ; at one piont I was at the top of a high pole going to jump of it and try a and catch a stick. (The leap of faith it was called). I think I was near losing my mind at that point. I went on the zip wire,stream scramberling,bungee jumping and real life pardcore. I love it there and I would hounistly go again. When the year fives go into the Whitehall team I’d go with them again.
