This is the second week of our year 6 entrepreneurs club ‘Attitude’. The group runs a variety of activities, this week the pupils got a chance to show off the dance moves with just dance… warming up for Sports Relief tomorrow.
I trust that the children have already woken you up and are serving you a delicious breakfast in bed. Hopefully you have received your cards and presents too! The children were keen for me to blog today showing you the process of them becoming recording artists towards the end of the week. We had great fun following the karaoke version of Spice Girls ‘Mama’ although they made me feel old when most of them didn’t actually know who the Spice Girls are! After a few practices throughout the week, we were ready to record. A big thank you to Mr. Keegan for bringing in his professional recording equipment. Also, thank you to Aimee for designing and helping the children with their cards throughout the week. Have a wonderful day with your newly crowned pop stars.
We looked at some amazing photographs this afternoon of the Northern Lights – looking at the colours and patterns that they produce in the sky. The children then had the opportunity to create their own pictures using chalk pastels for the night sky and then cut out black silhouettes of mountains, trees and animals to stick on. This looked so effective and the children should be so proud of the work they produced!
Year 1 loved their visit from the author, Helen Docherty. She read us her story ‘The Snatchabook’ and the children followed her instructions to draw their own Snatchabook. She also read her book ‘You can never run out of love’. We thoroughly enjoyed our session, thank you Helen.
The author we are basing today’s work on is Philip Reeve, author of Mortal Engines – a futuristic world where people live on moving platforms called traction cities. We have listened to parts of the book and are building our own traction city! Building works are currently underway…
We have celebrated St. David’s Day in style today by participating in our annual Eisteddfod. Congratulations to the winners of our writing and art competitions.
Have a very Happy Saint David’s Day!
Reception looked wonderful in their costumes today, we have made cards, coloured some beautiful pictures and said our Welsh poem to the school!
Happy St. David’s Day from Year 1. The children look fantastic in their Welsh costumes and rugby/football tops. We have had a busy morning completing ‘Welsh’ challenges, such as building castles, making paper leeks, learning about St David on the computers and finding words in a wordsearch. Ardderchog Blwyddyn 1! We have also thoroughly our Eisteddfod and the children did a great job of reciting their Welsh poem.
It was tricky to take photographs of the children in Year 3 dancing this afternoon but what a giggle we had! Every child joined in and every child had a huge smile on their face as they tried welsh folk dancing. Excellent team work today and great listening skills! Ardderchog!
This half term, year 4 have been enjoying indoor PE sessions working through and learning Zumba dances from GoNoodle.com. They have loved dancing along with the instructors on the screen and everyone has gotten involved!
As part for our Robots topics, for creative moevement the class composed their own dance moves for a joint dance, AND they wrote the music to perform it to.
After 45 minutes of intense dancing, it was hard to see anyone who hadn’t gotten a good exercise session in, including the staff!
