Today has been an extremely busy day!
We began the morning teaching class 6 all about the 17 sustainable development goals. The children were really interested to learn about the different goals and how they are all interconnected. We then focused on goal number 7 'Affordable clean energy for all'. We discussed renewable and non renewable energy sources and talked about their advantages and disadvantages. After this, we discussed how solar panels can be used to generate electricity and heat water. We watched a video about the impact solar panels have had on communities in Kenya. The children then worked together to come up with ways of using solar panels around the school, their homes and their communities.
Lindsay from the Roberts Bakery baked bread with 24 children from class seven. To start with, they watched a video showing them the history of the bakery and the process of making bread. The delicious smell quickly filled the whole school and the outside! The children took the bread home to share it with their family!
During break time, we took the parachute to the Reception Class. They had amazing time playing with it and reading all of your names! There were squeals of delight from the children as they played together with the parachute.
At the end of the day, we were privileged to walk home with some of the children. They showed us the journey to the school and kindly invited us to their houses. This was a real highlight of the day and a wonderful experience.
Challenge: Tomorrow we are visiting Lord Egerton's castle. Can you find out when it was built and the distance from Tatton Park to the castle?
We are really enjoying reading your comments!
