Perform for Schools drama workshop - 18/3/20
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip around the world with Phileas Fogg. We travelled in different ways, met and said "hello" to people in different countries along the way and managed to avoid the crocodile to bring back the boomerang that the Queen requested for her birthday!
World Book Day
We had a fantastic day on Thursday 5th March. We dressed up as our favourite book character and shared stories with our grown ups first thing in the morning.
Later on in the day we shared stories with the Year 1 children and did some fantastic writing about our costume.
Chinese New Year!
We started our learning about Chinese New Year with a fantastic workshop full of music and dance. There were cymbals, drums and gongs to play and we pretended to be lions by working in pairs. Harri and Oliver were chosen to put on the real lion costume and parade around!
After that we played our instruments again and some of us made patterns with colourful ribbons.
Then we William and Isabelle held the Pearls of Wisdom and led the dragons around the hall whilst we played music.
At the end we learnt some Chinese words to use. Can you remember them?
We have been having a great time practising different skills in our PE lessons.
We have also worked hard as small teams and part of a class team to play different games.
We have had a very busy day of craft.
First the Year 5 children from Velmead Junior School came to make a Christmas tree with us in the morning.
In the afternoon some of our adults came to help make some decorations for our classroom.
All art work will be sent home before the end of term.
This week we had a dance morning.
We listened to a piece of music; discussed what it sounded like and how it made us feel; we learnt a dance to the music and then performed our dance to Dragonfly and Butterfly classes.
Afterwards we watched the original dance to the piece of music we performed to - Singin' in the Rain.
Remember, remember the fifth of November
We watched a PowerPoint presentation about the story of why people have bonfires and fireworks on the fifth of November.
Afterwards we created firework pictures using different stamping and printing tools and then glittered the fireworks to show how they sparkle in the night sky.
Look at our lovely art work!
We have been busy finding out how to join different containers to make our ideas in to models. We have used lots of perseverance and worked hard to create crocodiles, aeroplanes and houses amongst other things!
Here a just a few of our creations. We hope you enjoyed sharing your child's work when it came home.
Our first few days at school
We have been busy exploring the indoor and outdoor learning environments at school.
Outdoors we have used the construction area, Poddely shapes for building and a wide range of equipment to practise our movement and balance.
Indoors we have enjoyed using the home corner, small world area, interactive whiteboard as well as practising our drawing and writing skills.
