It’s a new school year and we’ve got new-look blogs. We hope you enjoy the blogs, but please make sure you and your child have read the blogging information leaflets that will be sent home in the first week of term. We look forward to seeing your comments!
Here is the link to the BBC website we have been using to research the Vikings.
Over the last two weeks, year 4 have visited the zoo as part of their Brazil topic work, as well as their work in science about Living Things. We visited the Rainforest Life centre for a workshop, where the children had the opportunity to explore the rainforest habitat, searching for animals and taking temperature and humidity recordings. As well as the workshop, we had time to explore other areas of the zoo. Have a look at the collection of photos below.
Last week, 4GJ performed their class assembly to parents and the rest of Blue Hall. Everyone learned a lot about the rainforest, as well as a traditional story which told us the importance of conserving the plants and animals that are found in the rainforest. Well done 4GJ!
Last Thursday, 4JJ performed their long awaited musical adaptation of the story of Beowulf, the legendary Anglo-Saxon warrior.
There were monsters, many battles, and an ultimately sticky ending for Beowulf. All the children performed and sang brilliantly – there are certainly some West End stars in the making!
A huge thank you to all the parents, carers and extended families that came to watch. Your support is always appreciated.
4KB put on a fantastic show for all of Blue hall (and their excited parents and carers) in their assembly on Thursday 19th January. They showcased their learning of Ancient Britain and told everyone about Roman soldiers, Celtic way of life and Boudicca’s revolt. There was even a talk show hosted by Maximus Vile! We ended with a our ‘Just Like a Roman’ song, which has been stuck in our heads ever since! We loved putting on this extravaganza for everyone and hoped you enjoyed it too.
Yesterday, the whole school dived head first into an Enabling Enterprise Challenge Day. The children were tasked with working in teams to build their own political party, including manifesto pledges, party stash and persuasive speech. Here are some of the teams working on their promotional materials:
