Year 4 had a great time being introduced to their new topic for this half term; The Elizabethans. We listened to Elizabethan music and wrote about how we were feeling and different emotions the music evoked in us. We were then taught how to make 'ruffs' and to draw in the style of Elizabethan portrait artist Nicolas Hilliard.
Year 6 Roald Dahl Day!
Year 6 have been celebrating Roald Dahl Day today! They have been focusing on Matilda and learning about how Roald Dahl teaches about bravery. We watched part of the BBC Teach live lesson which shows how Matilda demonstrates bravery and then took time to discuss times when we have shown bravery at school and at home.
This morning, we also had our ignite activity and we created rainforest squash books! We watched an origami tutorial which demonstrated how to do it and then followed all the steps!
Year 3 had a great morning celebrating Roald Dahl day. We focused on his fantastic book, James and the Giant Peach! We started by reading up to where the magic began to make the peach grow huge and then took a look at some of the main characters in the story. Then we began to look at collage and made some huge pieces of collage art. The children explored different paper textures and colours and applied them to their shared art creations. Well done for your brilliant art year 3.
To ignite our celebrations topic this term, year 1 had a party this afternoon! We spent all day preparing for Kipper's birthday party. The children wrote invitations, made decorations and cards for Kipper. We made some delicious cakes and decorated them with colourful sprinkles.
In the afternoon, we started our party with lots of dancing! We played musical statues and Miss Kerrigan came along after receiving our invitation. After our dancing, we tried our decorated cakes which were delicious. Everyone had a great time celebrating Kipper's birthday!
After a busy morning, year 6 visited the beach. After making beach art and having a paddle the children got to explore rock pools and even visit the cafe!
More to follow.
A busy morning for all groups! In this picture, children are scaling a climbing wall and taking part in the zip wire. The sun is now shining and we are about to walk to the beach; the cafe at the beach is about to make a roaring trade!
Further updates to follow.
Year 6 had a successful first day with a walk up Beeston Bump (the second highest point in Norfolk) before unpacking and settling in. After making our beds (with mixed success) we toured the site and completed two activities before dinner.
The weather has been kind but warm and the children have been working together to problem solve. We will upload pictures of today's activities later today.
Good morning to all our families back home in Milton Keynes. A beautiful sunrise greeted us today here in Norfolk. After a busy day yesterday we are preparing for another day of activities (climbing, zipwire and a visit to the beach to name a few!) We will keep you all updated with some pictures of yesterdays trip so keep checking the website for updates.
Four lucky children who had 100% attendance and punctuality every day this term were picked out at random during our home learning assembly last Friday for an extra special treat! While all of their classmates were hard at work in the classroom, they came with Miss Scott and Mr Shipton to the cinema to see Toy Story 4! Afterwards, we were feeling a little peckish so we also decided to visit Creams in Xscape for a delicious dessert! If you want to be in with a chance of treats like this in future, make sure you come to school every day on time for the register!
