Listen2Me Summer Concert

For the last time this year, we were treated to an afternoon of musical entertainment on Wednesday.
Mrs Staniforth's musicians kicked us off beautifully on their flutes and recorders.  They played some fantastic pieces and really showed off everything they have been learning.
This was followed by a wonderful concert performed by Year 2 and 4 children.  Year 4 played their ukuleles, while Year 2 played a range of tuned percussion instruments - the metallophone, chime bars, glockenspiel and xylophone.
The children all sang and played brilliantly.  Thank you once again to Mrs Watling for supporting our children to learn the instruments and perform so confidently.

Y5 Bread Making

We made bread!

Today we had a go at making Syrian style bread to fit with our topic all about Baghdad.  We used only our arm muscles to mix our dough before letting it rise.  Some of us found this exhausting.  Then, using only our hands, we shaped our dough into small pitta shaped loaves ready for baking.  We hope you enjoyed tasting them!

Year 3 and 4 visit the New Forest!

Last week, Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic time at the River Ober in the sunshine. We paddled in the river, measuring its width and depth; identified trees and plants; collected a variety of different nature colours; sketched and labelled a beautiful part of the meander; created art from nature; and played pooh sticks off the bridge. We had a great time and even managed to enjoy ice lollies after our lunch.

Thank you to all adults who came along and supported us on this amazing trip!
