BBC Music Day

The BBC invited us to "get singing" - and so we did! All across the school classes logged on to the BBC  and took part in a few vocal exercises, before learning and performing part of a song. Murphy class loved taking part.

Year 3/4 Trip to Celtic Harmony Camp

Year 3 and 4 took a journey back in time today when we visited Celtic Harmony Campthe UK's largest reconstructed Iron Age settlement.

 We gathered food from the ancient woodland for a prehistoric cookery lesson.

We built our own shelters in the woods.

We learned about flint tools and how to use them to defend ourselves from bears. Then we tried our hands at hunting in the woods.

We learned how to walk silently like a hunter from the Stone Age and practised shooting prehistoric animals amongst the trees.

Chauncy Community Day 2018

On Friday, the entire school took part in Chauncy Community day 2018. Most of us walked there, thanks to those who accompanied us, whilst the youngest children were visited, at school, by a team from Chauncy.




Numeracy Fun

Hargreaves class had a fantastic day and would like to say "Thank you" to all the staff and students, at Chauncy, who made this possible. I am sure other classes will share their photos soon.

Author visit - year 2-6

The children from years 2, 3, 4 and 6 enjoyed a visit from inspirational local author H.G. Sansostri yesterday afternoon in a fun-packed assembly looking at his books and journey as an author.  What made this visit truly amazing was that Harry is just 16 years old having published his first book on his 12th birthday.  Here are some photos of the event.

Book Club - The Explorer

Katherine Rundell, an exciting new author whose name will replace the current Horowitz class, has given us another great read - ‘The Explorer’. Four children find themselves plunged into the Amazon Rainforest after their plane crashes. As the only survivors, only courage and determination will ensure their survival…

The Book Club members enjoyed listening to the first chapter, which hooks the reader in immediately with the crash. The children imagined themselves in the airplane before and after the engine cut out; it was interesting to hear the different thoughts going through their minds.

The group then carried out an extensive role play, in which they had to decide where to make a camp after the crash.  We then read an extract which highlighted some of the dangers faced by the book’s characters, and the children imaginatively role-played scenes of themselves in the jungle with various threats and dangers appearing. It was all very dramatic!

We finished off the session by reading an extract in which the characters eat some disgusting and dangerous foods, and mimed eating food that we might find in the jungle. This led to a lot of dying!! A really exciting Book Club today which had everyone’s imagination fired.
