This term we have had the privilege of working with Jake from Bristol Rovers FC who has spent Friday afternoons with us, teaching pacey and fun-filled PE sessions as well as interesting classroom based lessons about the human body and nutrition.
We have also enjoyed two visits from the RoboGals team – a Bristol University’s Department for Engineering. They have taught us to create computer code and to programme robots, as well as inspired us to think about the many careers in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
We have also studied the work of New Orleanean artist Willie Birch as part of our topic based on the city. In response to his thought-provoking pieces we have created our own papier mache figurines, depicting our experiences of life in our own city of Bristol. We hope to send him some photographs and let him know how we have been inspired by his work.
