Eggscellent Enrichment!

As Easter draws near, Phase 3 came to the end of their spring enrichment programme, with a few new, or improved life skills under their belts! 

Here is a flavour of what they have been up to.........

They can't wait to see what the summer term has to offer! 

Communication, cooperation and teamwork.

Phase 3 drama games enrichment group is excelling with these specific life skills this term, using them to improvise in a variety of games.

Ten second objects

Can you spot the fish tank? The cooked breakfast? The record player? The hot drink?

Sit, stand, lie

The children were given a scene to create, without talking, each becoming an object or character, in a standing, sitting or lying position.

........it's hard to push one child in the trolley, whilst the other child is having a tantrum on the floor! 


 

Food Glorious Food....

14 hungry pupils visited the catering department at Macclesfield College to critique dishes created by the college catering students. Following a visit to the school kitchen at Parkroyal and some invaluable nutrition advice from Mrs Barber, the students were tasked with creating a healthy menu suitable to serve as school meals which the pupils were asked to taste and give feedback on the dishes. There was a wonderful selection of main meals, puddings and snacks including sweet and sour chicken, fish goujons, cottage pie, pasta, lemon posset, flapjacks and much more. 

The children thoroughly enjoyed all the food and gave some extremely useful feedback to the students. One of the lecturers John said

'Your students are a credit to the school. So well behaved and full of confidence. I hope that we can call on your services next year'.

New books.

You can't beat a nice new book to read; following feedback from pupil voice, the Enrichment team have made a start to the new reading area by ordering new titles from up to date authors.

 We shall be adding to these over the school year by organising events for you to be involved in and running the 'GOLDEN BALL' monthly draw to help generate funds.    As always we thank you for continuing to support the Enrichment banking and events team.

News of your 'Grow a £1' so far.

The Enrichment Banking and Events team have been impressed by so many budding business minded pupils growing their £1.

97 students completed application forms to grow a £1 back in September. We have had teams of siblings, friends and individual pupils growing their £1 in so many different ways.

The project will be closing on the 2nd November. All £1 loans with need to be returned with any profit made to the enrichment post box outside Mrs Savage's maths room.

We can't wait to share the total made by pupils and photos of all the exciting enterprise schemes.

Thank you for giving the project a try and working hard to grow your £1.

LKS2 Enrichment: Teamwork makes the dream work.

Years 3 & 4

Teamwork was the essential ingredient today, as children designed their treasure maps, using compass knowledge and map symbols. 

IMG_3380.JPG

In the sewing room, they were concentrating on using paper patterns to cut out their felt shapes, realising it gave them the shape they wanted without wasting felt. Co-operation was in abundance, as they worked together to complete their pieces. 

 

IMG_3385.JPG

Unfortunately, the weather put a dampener on outside games, but the team spirit was still alive as they worked together indoors.

IMG_3351.JPG

Problem solving was the order of the day with Mrs Tuson, as the children had to create a structure, that would support the weight of a tennis ball -with only 10 pieces of A4 paper and 1m of tape.

 

IMG_3378.JPG

Planning and organising, and a steady hand is providing fabulous results with the Mathematical Art.

IMG_3376.JPG

Despite the rain, the gardeners continued working together, keeping each other motivated, to improve our garden for us all to enjoy.

Communication was essential in The Garage Band, as they worked in pairs to create their musical masterpieces.

 

 

 

Year 1 & 2

 Mrs Herbert's enrichment group looked at self esteem yoga poses. They had a dinosaur theme with some mindful colouring. All the children left feeling very calm, relaxed and focused.

Mrs Taylor's clay kids have designed and made clay pinch pots using lots of new skills and techniques. This week they have painted them, they are looking amazing!

IMG_1260.JPG

Mrs Dunkley's engineering group have been using the growth mindset approach when trying to problem solve. There are no right or wrong answers, the children have been thinking outside the box. They have tried to make the tallest, free standing, paper towers. They made a bridge between a given distance that a toy car can travel along and this week they have been looking at lego vehicles.

Mrs Poole's drawing group took a line for a continual walk and filled in the patterns with oil pastels.

The skipparoos,enjoyed the beautiful morning sunshine,whilst trying to see how many of the group could skip at the same time.

Our first aid enrichment group, looked at the vital CPR technique and the correct recovery position to be used.Everyone listened to the instructions and could clearly demonstrate both first aid skills effectively.

Miss Smith's origami group mad otters and made them into cards.

Exhilarating Enrichment!

Year 3/4 Human Body scientists got a little messy this week, investigating how our digestive system works.

Then, they shared their Human Body App investigations with Mr Sinden's group, who shared their amazing musical masterpieces on Garage Band.

Mrs Robinshaw's superstars relaxed in today's heat and sewed so efficiently that their bag of goodies to sell at the summer fair is bursting!

Impossible or I'm possible?

Across the school again this week, all the children have continued improving their life skills, during our Enrichment sessions.

 

Do we live in the North, South, East or West of the U.K.? Children in Y3&4, with Mrs Savage this week, have been finding the map references of cities located within the UK. 

 

 

IMG_3420.JPG

Mrs Tuson's group have been investigating how our lungs work, making a model that relied on teamwork to be effective.  

 

IMG_3422.JPG

In the Y3&4 sewing room this week, the children have gained in confidence, using sharp scissors to cut out shapes and pins to attach patterns to felt. The completed designs are looking amazing..........roll on the Summer Fair!

Year 5 & 6

The first aid group this morning took a test which covered all the information and skills learnt over the last few weeks for basic first aid.

 Well done Alex of 6HP for achieving first spot on the test.

This week, the sewing group went emoji crazy! If they have enough yellow felt left, they'll be making some emoji key rings to sell at the summer fair. You might also like the pineapple pincushions or strawberry brooches that they're planning to sew. 

 

IMG_3322.JPG

Out in the playground, the children skipped- on their own, in pairs or as a group. Super teamwork and perseverance. 

 

IMG_3325.JPG

The human body researchers, this week focused on the human skeleton and its function. Do you know how many bones there are? Their challenge was to collapse the skeleton on the App and rebuild with finite precision!  

IMG_3323.JPG

Orienteering this week involved planning and looking for the best places to have their treasure trail, using map reading skills.

In their first week of sewing, with Mrs Robinshaw, all the children persevered until they could thread a needle and they learnt how to do a running stitch and a back stitch. 

 

The new gardeners, led by Mrs Shoemaker, had a great morning- clearing, digging, brushing, planting some seeds and selling rhubarb to staff, to make money for compost. 

 

Mr Sinden's group learnt how to use 'GarageBand', to record music played on the keyboard, drum kits and even Chinese music. They also learnt how to play the drum rhythm to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, all on the IPads! 

 

Mrs Savage went Orienteering............let's hope they all found their way back! 

 

Hopscotch was played the traditional way with Mrs Poole, and also with new ideas from all the children. 

 

Mrs Morgan's mathematicians discussed how they could use mathematical equipment to create amazing art! 

 

Watch this space for our weekly updates........... 

An evening of fun.

WE DID IT.

We discussed, we mind mapped, we shared ideas, we planned, we organised, we sent out letters, we raised prizes, we worked as a team and we put on our first event the 'BINGO BASH'.

 

The room was full of fun and smiles a real happy Parkroyal 'buzz'.
