All of the children in Stiperstones class , this afternoon have enjoyed making Easter cards using tissue paper as their medium.
This morning, Stiperstones enjoyed a visit to Oswestry library to participate in a Shakespeare workshop, celebrating Shakespeare week.
During the morning, they had great fun acting out Shakespeare’s famous play, ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’, playing games and participating in craft activities.
The organisers of the workshop, praised the children, for their excellent acting skills and behaviour whilst at the library.

Today the Y5’s in Stiperstones enjoyed a morning at The Marches School, participating in taster STEM sessions.
The STEM sessions consisted of maths, science and design and technology lessons.
During the maths session, the children had to solve a sequencing problem. In the science session, the children enjoyed making rollercoasters, learning about kinetic energy and working together.
The last session of the morning, enabled the children to experience a lesson in the design and technology rooms. They made wind chimes, which involved them using a drill, to drill a hole in the piece of plastic, using a clamp and vice to round of the edges
All children represented the school well, and enjoyed their morning, having taste of what lessons will be like in two years time.
The Year 5 and 6 boys had a successful day yesterday at the Marches, competing against two teams from The Meadows and a team from Woodside in football.
Despite the miserable weather the boys put on an impressive display, beating 2 teams and drawing against another.
Overall they came second in the tournament losing out on goal difference.
Well done boys for playing fantastic football and representing the school well. Mr Phillips said that the boys were a credit to the school.
One last big thank you to Mr Phillips, who accompanied the boys to the tournament.
Last night the children enjoyed playing table tennis and playing games during their free time.
They then played the flying egg game, they were given the challenge of making a device that would safely transport an egg from a significant height. In their teams they were given card, paper, rubber bands, paper clips and a plastic sheet to make their device.
Once they had made their egg carries, we all went outside to drop their eggs, to see who had made the best device.
All children had egg-cellent fun, before a cup of hot chocolate, and a good nights sleep. Ready for another day of adventure, consisting of climbing, bridge building, caving and archery.
