Isolation at Calthorpe - Week 7
Isolation at Calthorpe: Week 7!
Design and Technology, Geography and Orienteering were some of the extra activities we enjoyed in our 7th week of isolation at Calthorpe.
On Monday, we all made a little gadget called a ‘cable tidy’ for our mobile phones. Not only was this a fun activity but also a very useful one. Thank you Mr Elsey!
On Tuesday, we practised our orienteering skills with Ms Plunkett and enjoyed some additional physical exercise, fresh air and sunshine as well.
We completed our jewellery boxes on Wednesday. We were all proud of the fact that they were almost as good as Mr Edwards’…… but with his help of course!
On Thursday, we played ‘Where in the World’ with Ms Chidgey and Mrs Wayman. We were all asked to think of a place in the world that we had visited and found interesting. Then we researched as many facts as possible about our chosen place and were given 20 minutes to produce a fact sheet on it. At the end of this time, we each gave a presentation about our chosen place to the group. Mrs Wayman and Ms Chidgey mounted our fact sheets on a large map of the world so that everyone could clearly see their locations. It was a great activity that we all enjoyed and learned from. Nobody specifically won the presentation competition because we were apparently ‘all brilliant’….….. or so Mrs Wayman said!
