Kilve Court 2018 Day 1

Posted by nwyatt on Wednesday May 23, 2018 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

I can’t praise them enough!

I’ve seen a wonderful amount of collaboration, team work and kindness being exhibited by every member of the class.

We’re being well fed and we’ve had great fun so far.

On arrival we had lunch, moved in to the big house and unpacked. Then we went to complete our beach activity, ate ice cream and came back to Kilve to complete the maze activity.

Two children came up to me and said it was the best day of their life! Amazing!

See below for photos.

More tomorrow,

Mr. W

Owl Pellets

Posted by nwyatt on Monday May 14, 2018 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Today, as part of an investigation on Owl and food webs, the children dissected Owl pellets to see what bones were present. Using a bone chart, we could compare the bones found with the chart and identify the animal which has been eaten as prey.

Prior to this investigation, these had to be individually wrapped in tin foil and baked for 30 minutes in the oven to sterilise them, so big thanks to anyone in the local area who had to put up with the smell near my kitchen during that time!

Anyway, with those pellets safe, we used tools such as tweezers to pull apart the pellet without needing to use our hands, we then used a bone chart which had the usual name of the animal eaten along the top, and then the name of the associated bone down the side. We then identified specifically which type of bone it was and filled in a tally for how many were found.

Everyone conducted the investigation in a safe, hygienic and sensible manner, so well done Kestrels!

Mr. W

Endangered Animals Café

Posted by nwyatt on Wednesday May 9, 2018 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Today, the Kestrel Class team once again excelled themselves by running the ‘Endangered Animals Café’ for a special one-off fundraising event, in aid of raising funds for the WWF to adopt an endangered animal.

I’m really proud of the way the children conducted themselves throughout not only today, but the entire build up in class to this event. It was great to see the Kestrels really give everything in Maths classes particularly, knowing that giving change and handling money was going to be an essential part of them being able to achieve their goal of adopting an animal.

The final totals have yet to be counted up, but a quick count of just the notes has confirmed that we already have enough money to adopt at least one animal which is fantastic news.

We will give you a final total when we get it, but I’m still hopeful of raising a bit more money as I’m selling any left over cakes to the staff in the staffroom!

I’d also like to give a big thanks to all of the Kestrel Class parents who supported this event. Whether it was through attending the café, sending donations or by baking amazing cakes, everyone played their part, so house points for all of you!

Please see below for some photos of the event.

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

Endangered Animals Café

Posted by nwyatt on Friday May 4, 2018 Under Uncategorized

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to invite you to have tea and cake at the Endangered Species Pop-up Café, which will run on Wednesday 9th May from 1:30-3:00pm. Please feel free to bring along other family members, friends or neighbours too!

As you may know, our current topic is ‘Endangered Species’ and as part this topic, Year 4 have borrowed money from ‘The Bank of Welton’ to start our own coffee shop business. All profits raised through this business will go towards the adoption of a WWF animal and donation to the charity. We will be handling money, purchasing ingredients, waiting on you and serving you. We will also be counting the money, calculating change, and writing receipts so please be patient with us on the day!

As part of the café we will also be selling cakes etc. So, if you or your child is a budding Mary Berry, please feel free to donate a cake or two.

I’m sure you can’t possibly contain your excitement, so in the meantime do check the blog on the www.weltonprimary.co.uk website (click the picture of the Kestrel), and keep up-to-date with our daily learning on twitter @wps_blue.

As always, thanks you for your continued support,

Mr N Wyatt
