Dino day

KS1 thoroughly enjoyed their Dino day! The children made fossils from moulds (which were cast from real fossils), tried walking on Dino feet, excavated in a sand tray to fine bones, touched Dino poo, smelt the contents of a dinosaur's stomach, pretended to be a T-Rex and a Pterodactyl and saw how an explosion may have wiped out the dinosaurs. As usual it was great fun!

The topic of Dinosaurs is proving to be very popular in KS1 - the children are very engaged, keen to learn more and have enjoyed taking part in some creative activities.

World Book Day display

How did we celebrate World Book Day? Well, we undertook many different activities - These included wearing pyjamas to school, reading with a parent/carer and being read to by a different teacher.  Each class, also, helped create an author display, to match their own class name.

Charanga Assembly

Today, we held our termly Charanga assembly. Well done to all the children and staff who took part. This time we were treated to not just singing but listened to glockenspiels and ocarina playing, as well.

A particular mention should be made, to say well done to KS1, Rundell and Morpurgo, who all performed without the words or music on the screen - after a slight technical hitch!

I am very much looking forward to the summer term assembly, when we have our final performance and usually see such great progression.

FH - I liked playing the ocarina and showing other people it.

AA - It was good hearing different songs and instruments.

RB - It was good because the younger children played instruments and had a lot of repetition in their song and the older children had many more words and more complicated music.
