On Thursday 15th March, some Year 2 and Year 3 children were lucky enough to have the chance to visit Stantonbury Theatre to watch a special performance. We left just after our lunch and walked across to the theatre, once we arrived we took our seats and had a fantastic view! The whole show was performed by just one lady, Danyah Miller, who had the audience captivated. We listened to several stories all from the perspective of a small boy called Thomas, who certainly had a few adventures during his life. We left to return just before the end of the day and as the time ticked on we had some very tired legs and some competitive walking from Miss Lovelock and Mrs Regan. All in all the children and adults had a brilliant time and definitely came away believing that unicorns exist!

Year 3 have had the fantastic opportunity to work with a local artist and create some fantastic lanterns! We have had the opportunity to develop a number of artistic skills including wood turning. The children were given different pieces of willow which were provided by the Canals and Rivers Trust to create different animal sculptures that will be turned into lanterns. Some of the children then had the opportunity to work in pairs and create some smaller lanterns from the willow that will be put on display in Campbell Park on the second of December. After this, the children then decorated the lanterns with different tissue paper and placed lights inside. This created a beautiful light effect that makes the lanterns look amazing in the dark. Hopefully we will be able to keep some of the fantastic lanterns after the festival and put them on display in the hall.
Chestnut class have been learning the 'A' note on the recorders for the last couple of weeks. Here's a sneak peak of what we have been learning!
Year 3 have been finishing off our volcanoes topic with a bang! As part of a special sculptures project with Miss. Lovelock, the children created their own volcanoes. This afternoon, we went outside and explored chemical change by mixing bicarbonate of soda with vinegar and made our volcanoes erupt. The children loved it and are now looking forward to next half term's project of Antarctica!
