Last week Year 6 were fortunate enough to visit the Bristol and West Jewish Congregation synagogue as part of their Religious Education. They were able to learn about a lot of new information about how Jewish people worship and celebrate throughout the year. Year 6 asked many thoughtful questions and really enjoyed looking at the Torah scrolls during their visit.
On Monday the 12th November, the children in Year 6 spent the morning at the Lifeskills Centre in Bristol taking part in role play activities and learning vital skills needed for life. The Centre is made up of a series of realistic, everyday scenarios where the children must spot dangers and react appropriately under the watchful eye of experienced staff and volunteers. On the training, they learned how to make emergency phone calls, administer basic lifesaving first aid, shop for healthy food and how to cross the road safely in a modern world full of distractions. The children, staff and other adults who attended, all thoroughly enjoyed themselves whilst learning some invaluable skills for life. It was a great school trip and one which the children will hopefully remember for a long time to come!
