All children took part in a free Easter Egg Raffle. There were lots of happy winners!
We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. As part of this day the children took part in many different activities linked to books. Year threes activities were mainly focused around a book called ‘Dirty Beasts’ by Roald Dahl, year fours tasks were based around a book from a series, ‘You’re a Bad Man, Mr Gum!’ by Andy Stanton’, year 5 completed tasks that linked to a book called ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver’ and year sixes work focused on a story called ‘Malala’s Magic pencil’. We also listened to a virtual reading from an author called Stuart Reid. Many of us dressed up as book characters in school and at home.
In Year 4 we have been designing our own funny fish. Adding silly features, such as clown, robot, warrior etc. Gary has added ‘Witch’ features to his fish. Gary completed this task at home. Well done Gary!
Fitness factor challenges for the 6th and 7th February were to challenge someone with how many times you can throw a ball up, clap once and catch it in 60 seconds and also to make up a new game. Here, Sophie and her sister are playing a ‘the floor is lava obstacle course game’ they developed.
In year 4 we have been studying an artist called Sokari Douglas Camp. She is a sculptor and her work is influenced by her Nigerian background. Many of her pieces are made from welding materials and reused waste materials.
