Conwy county council came to talk about the new promanade. We had lots of questions for them!
A visit from the Police!
  The police returned the unidentified object!
We were busy being reporters our first week back after half term!




This week we found an unidentified object on the grass by the top yard. 4TS thought the shiny metal object may be the Ironman's missing ear! It was decided to contact the police. We were sent incident reports to complete and on Thursday three police came to investigate the object. They secured the area and took fingerprints. They have now taken the object to their forensic team and they will report back on their findings.
In the meantime 4TS have decided to make a news report about this exciting event!!!!
See the photos below!!
Fire Service visit
Recently the fire service came to discuss safety in our homes.



The Mystery guest has been up to some tricks!

The mystery guest recently visited the Tardis  and left some objects for us to investigate. We had to work out what the objects were, what they were used for and who may of owned them in Tudor times (rich or poor). See the photos below to see what was left!
 We have then had to investigate inventories for the rich and poor and the diet of the rich and poor in Tudor times.

Last term we were learning about the Ironman, by Ted Hughes and looking at script writing and comic writing using Dr. Who!
 
 
Mrs Hill had an exciting time at the beginning of the school year! She went to the teaching awards UK ceremony in London hosted by Lenny Henry. She returned on the same week to visit 10 Downing Street to meet David Cameron PM and be congratulated on her fantastic achievement, Teaching Assistant winner for Wales 2011!
