Wenlock class have been busy learning and experiencing new activities at Mill of the Brue, Bruton.
The activities the children participated in ranged from Zip Wire & Grass Tobogganing to Assault Course to Colony Games. The children really enjoyed themselves as you see by their beaming smiley faces! :)
Also so did the teachers!
Our annual Easter Service was held on 21st March at St Andrews Church and led by Father Clive. Ragstone Class performed Palm Sunday, Basalt Class shared some Easter art and Wenlock performed the Last Supper and Resurrection
The year 3&4 children in Wenlock class have been learning to play the violin since September. Every Thursday afternoon, Charlotte - their teacher, coaches them through exciting songs and exercises. The children have learned about the different parts of the violin and can name each one!
On Thursday, 7th December, the children performed their first violin recital where they demonstrated their new skills of 'plucking', how to hold the bow and the correct hold of the instrument. They performed a fantastic rap and a Waltz, practicing their first learned notes.
On Wednesday 6th December the whole school participated in a porridge morning to raise money for a chosen charity, Mary's Meals.
Mary’s Meals provides one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. Their work is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty.
Throughout the rest of the year we will be running other fundraising events to raise money for our chosen charity, such as selling items the children have made at the Christmas fair.
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
Mells First School have received Bronze accreditation and are now aiming higher!
