Phase Three’s Life Skills Challenge Morning
So on Friday morning, our parents, carers and even grandparents came into school to experience some of the life skills with us and we did loads of crafts. To start some of us made pizzas and s’mores for ourselves and the grown ups. We had so much fun!
The parents/carers were amazed at how we got on and how the placement is set out outside of the school.
Next we did litter picking with our parents and our friends which was fun because we were helping the environment.
Also the Year 5/6 classes went to make jam and chutney with rhubarb and strawberries (they said it tasted delicious!)
In Bush Craft we made para chord people (they are people made with chord and are key rings). They were really fun to make in my view.
There were lots of colours to choose from and patterns. There is a pond in the Bush Craft area and there was little green frogs in the small pond. Now I will explain the luxury of the pizza - the pizza was really tasty we watched Jim make and bake the pizza.
We had lots of fun and I am sure the parents did too!

Breakfast and Hair
The children have been an absolute credit to their families and WDPS. Early start before heading back to Dutch school this morning.
What a jam packed day we have had! After a dull start, the sun has been shinning, showing Amsterdam at its very best.
After a short walk we arrived at ttsa.nl to meet the staff and children. We were treated to a tour of their school, had play time before each child did a five minute presentation about themselves. We headed off to a local park for a game of Cluedo before having lunch together. The children were really relaxed with the Dutch students and mixed naturally.
After lunch, we said our goodbyes and headed off to explore this stunning city.
After a scenic walk, taking in all of the Dutch architecture, some flamingos and beautiful canals, we finally arrived at the Museum of the Tropics. The tram ride home was a perfect end to day three.
And they’re off!!!!

Raising Aspirations Programme
Year five and six were treated to a RAP speaker Joe Waugh today. The ex Commonwealth gold medallist for cycling told the children all about his journey with cycling and how this impacted on his career.
Raising Aspiration Programme at WDPS
Yesterday, Year 5 had a RAP talk by Charlotte and Paige. They work for Highways England. Charlotte talked to the children about being a 'Civil Engineer' and about taking the apprenticeship rout in order to be a civil engineer. Charlotte is currently working on the improvements for the A1 motorway. The children tried on PPE and the visitors certainly inspired the Year 5s to consider a career in construction.
