In Year 2, we have shared and created our own Acrostic poems, using the word HARVEST. To develop our drawing skills, we have sketched our own images of fruit and vegetables, using photographs taken during harvesting. Additionally, we have learnt two poems and recited them aloud.
As part of their homework project, Year 4 had to create a Viking Longboat using any materials of their choice. Mrs Shedden and Mrs Whiteley were overwhelmed with the effort that the children (and their parents) had put into these creations. They are now displayed around school for the rest of the children to enjoy.
Today the whole school had special visitors into their assembly, author Jess Hiles and her mum Jo Allmond. Jess’ books all follow a similar theme ‘It’s ok to be different’. They followed up the assembly with a question and answer session with years 4, 5 and 6.
Today we have started learning our new instrument, the small Saxophone. We have learnt the names of the different parts and have put together a set of notes to compose a tune. We are looking forward to learning new notes and tunes in the next 10 weeks.
We are aiming to be back at school for approximately 4pm. See you soon.
Children are taking part in their last activity of Orienteering before having lunch. We will let you know what time we are leaving and give an approximate time of arrival. Children have had a fantastic time and made great memories. A weather update-we have had no snow so there is no expected delays in our return.
This afternoon we have been adventurous and been Gorge walking overlooking Fairbourne beach. Some children even braved the ‘slide’. Great fun was had by all and we are now looking forward to a fish and chip dinner.
This morning we have wrapped up warm and taken part in a nature ramble. At the end of the walk, we tried to light our own fire to have hot chocolate and marshmallows. Unfortunately,, we weren’t successful but we still managed hit chocolate and toasted marshmallows. We’ve arrived back for lunch of hot soup and sandwiches. Still no snow to report.
After arriving safely through the picturesque countryside, we ate lunch and took part in team building exercises with our group and instructors. Beds were made without any fuss. The weather has been lovely here today so we ventured down the beach to explore our new surroundings and watch the sun begin to set. After a roast dinner, we spent our money at the tuck shop and set off for a night walk. All tucked up in bed asleep now ready for a fun filled day tomorrow.
Today Mrs Shedden’s Violin Orchestra performed an exciting concert to Year 2 and Mrs Whiteley’s Year 4 class. This was their first time in performing to an audience and showed great courage and confidence in their playing and singing.Well done Year 4!
We have had a great 10 weeks playing the violin and learning the different musical terms, notes and songs. We are looking forward to the Summer term where we will get our hands on a new instrument to master.
