The academic year will soon draw to a close; children nationwide are currently relishing the thought of six or so weeks away from the classroom.
The holidays will undoubtedly give children a well-earned respite from the routines of term-time; outings, catching up with friends, bike rides, pa...
Today we built our own dream gardens. We looked at our plans from yesterday to see what we needed to include. We chose suitable materials to make each part and decided on different ways to stick and join bits together.
Reception then went on to investigate the different parts of plants. They were able to label the plant and say what each bit of the plant does.
Plants we eat!
Reception have been learning about the different plants of the plant you can then eat. They looked at the different parts and placed them on the area of the plat which you can eat.
We are Role Models!
Upper School pupils had the chance to challenge themselves to work collaboratively. They needed to stack the cups without touching them. Through a process of trial and error, they managed to build a tower of cups! We concluded that communication is the key to success for tasks of this nature.
Class 2 have been enjoying writing instructions in their English lessons. They then had a go at following their own instructions of how to make a sandwich. They very much liked the final point of their instructions, which was to enjoy their sandwich!
Class 4 are studying the BFG by Roald Dahl. We corrected the Big Friendly Giant’s grammar and spelling mistakes before creating our own dream jars.
Make sure you keep your dreams safe, we want they to come true one day.
Rose in Class 4 wrote brilliant beginning to a story including a beautiful description of her main character. Super effort, you are our star writer this week.
Class 5 had lots of fun learning mimes for their Guildhall exams.
During our mime workshop, we learnt how to tell stories through body motions, without the use of speech.
In the end, we all chose to perform ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ in our exams which we all passed! We are very proud of our results and cannot wait to perform to our parents next week.
Class 4 Guildhall Exams
Congratulations to Class 4 on their recent performances in the above exams. They had to learn a poem and short prose passage off by heart and act out a mime of a well-known fairy tale. They all achieved very high marks and should be very proud of themselves.
Class 3 & 4 created their own Tudor self-portraits with a modern twist. Using a variety of mediums and resources, the children used their imagination and creativity to create a vibrant and effective 3D self-portrait. Everyone worked incredibly hard to make their creations stand out.
Class 6 had a full and fabulous day at the seaside. We took the train down to Brighton which in itself was an adventure.
We took part in an Escape Room activity at “Pier Pressure”. It was SO much fun working together and figuring out the clues to unlock doors and solve puzzles to help us find the missing diamond. We enjoyed a delicious fish and chip lunch, spent some time at the arcade on Brighton Pier and enjoyed playing on the beach.
All in all, a great day was had by all. Tired and sugar filled children were handed back to the parents that evening.
