Stackpole Residential Trip (for current year 5s)

Added on by School Administrator.

We have made a booking to take the children from current Year 5 on a residential visit to Stackpole in Pembroke from Monday 19th November – Friday 23rd November 2018.

Stackpole is ideally situated with stunning views and well equipped classrooms and rooms with sweeping views of fields and farmland. There is plenty of space to play ball games outside, make bug homes and have camp fires, as well as a large hall for games in the evening.

The children will travel to Stackpole by coach, leaving Neston at 8.30am on Monday 19th November and arrive back at school by 4.30pm on Friday 23rd November 2018.

Lily and Abbie ended up with amazingly clear water, which was the envy of most!

Throughout the morning, everybody's methods improved and it was definitely a challenge for all. Well done Beech and Maple!

The children applied their science skills and knowledge really well and came up a wide range of solutions.

Last Friday Beech and Maple classes came one step closer to being able to survive on a deserted island with only muddy water to drink. Based on their science learning this term, they all invented water filters that would (hopefully) give them clean water to drink!

Carol Dweck - Growth Mindset TED talk

Added on by Chestnut.

Follow this link to Carol Dweck's talk on Growth Mindset, filmed in November 2014

Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.'
