This week some of our Year 5 children, along with some of the Year 6's took part in a production at the Hall For Cornwall. They were all amazing and put in lots of hard work and dedication. A very proud moment for us all on Wednesday! So a big well done to them all.
Well we have had yet another super trip this week as we visited St Ausell fire station to take part in Hazard Alley. Here the children learnt valuable life skills on how to keep safe.
They had the opportunity to:
- Practice the recovery position.
- Learn about legal and illegal substances.
- Understand the dangers of hoax calls.
- Learn how to stay safe on the internet.
They also learnt about age related products from trading standards, ways to recycle and how to make and press paper .
The children also learnt about bacteria, how fast it spreads if you don’t wash your hands thoroughly. They had to put a special bacteria cream on their hands and place them under an ultra violet light to see how dirty their hands were. They were then tested on how well they washed off the cream by placing them back under the ultra violet light after washing them. Year 5 were pretty good at washing their hands but it was surprising how much bacteria could still been seen, especially inbetween fingers. So the importance of hand washing has definately been demonstrated.
Here they are on their trip:
We are looking forward to taking the remainding Year 5's sailing a week on Wednesday and also can't wait for our end of year trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium! Let hope for lovely sunshine again :)
Have a lovely weekend.
