Trips and Visits

Class 3 went to Morfa Bay – Term 6 2017

Day 1

We arrived and enjoyed a picnic in the sunshine after settling in our dorms.

Half the group tackled the mud assault course whilst the other group did orienteering in the woods. As you can see a fun time was had by all! Good luck with the washing when we get home!

Day 2

The coastal walk yesterday evening helped to tire the children out and all slept well and are in good spirits.
Activities today have included mountain biking, archery, abseiling and rock-pooling for one group and the other did climbing and zip wire, orienteering and the trench experience.
We are about to set off for the beach for the evening – rain has held off for now!

Day 3

We enjoyed a couple of hours on the beach last night and the walk back up a very steep hill certainly tired us out!

Today, the children have been very busy with challenging activities: caving and high ropes. One group enjoyed the trench experience and the other went rock-pooling.

Day 4

We had a fantastic time down at the beach this morning, messing about with kayaks in the sea.

This afternoon, one group did the mud assault course and zip wire, while the other group did abseiling, archery and mountain biking.

After tea, it’s DISCO time!!


The Bristol Hindu Temple

Rangeworthy enjoyed a whole school visit to The Bristol Hindu Temple on Tuesday as part of our ‘Culture Week’ which focussed on ‘India’.

We were greeted warmly by the Priest who gave us a very interesting talk about the Hindu faith. We were guided around the temple, telling us all about the different gods and goddesses in the shrines as well as explaining how Hindus worship them.

Class 1 SS Great Britain Trip

On Monday 20th June, Class 1 had a trip into Bristol to visit the SS Great Britain.

When they arrived they tried on the type of clothes that the passengers on the SS Great Britain would have worn and found them to be very heavy!

They then had a tour of the ship and noticed how different the Steerage and First Class accommodation was.

After lunch, they went into the dry dock and could pretend they were un-der water. They could see the propeller, anchor and holes caused by rusting.

They had a great day and since coming back to school have produced some fantastic writing and diagrams to show what they have learned.

Class 3 Residential to Govilon

Class 3 went to Govilon Learning and Activity Centre this week for a week of exciting activities and challenges. This has included a waterfall walk, a mountain walk and canoeing.

The children have had a fantastic time and will, I’m sure, have some great stories to tell you about all of their achievements!

A massive thank you to Mrs Warnock, Mrs Guest, Mrs Winton and Mrs Tarplee for all their hard work in organising the trip and accompanying the children.

Class 1 Chipping Sodbury Library and Crib Festival Visit

Class 1 had an exciting trip to Chipping Sodbury, the library opened up especially for us. Neil the Librarian read us a story all about Rapunzel who was saved by a Library not a prince! We explored the library and found some lovely books to share. Then Neil read us The Christmas Story before we headed across to St John’s Church to look around the amazing crib festival. There were cribs from all around the world made from so many different materials, glass, clay, paper, wood and even loombands. We enjoyed seeing our our crib displayed, we used wooden pegs to make the person we are playing in our Christmas nativity play and the narrators made the stable.

Class 1 visited the Redwood Outdoor Centre

In the Spring, our topic was Frozen Lands. To mark the beginning of our new topic Class 1 visited the Redwood Outdoor Centre. We learnt about woodland animals and their habitats. Some of us got a little bit muddy!
