Ukulele World Record Attempt.

Ukulele World Record Attempt!

Year 4 are waking up today as world record holders.  Although not official yet, the number of Ukulele players through the turnstiles exceeds the current record.  We are waiting for an official announcement on Monday but the numbers are looking good!

Here we are, in full concentration mode, strumming our way into the record books...

What a way to end the year!

Year 6 for a day!

Today, we made the journey up to the next classroom to become Year sixes for the morning! It was very strange being in a new room, but we all felt a little bit taller being at the top of the school, and we certainly showed what good role models we will be!

First of all, we worked brilliantly in teams to build bridges to see whose could hold the heaviest weight. Miss Halton was especially impressed at how well we cooperated and communicated with each other.






All our team work paid off - our bridges worked!

 Alfie, Harry, and Jack's bridge held an astonishing 4800g, with Charley, Robyn, and Rosie's bridge coming a close second.

Well done Year Five for working so well as a team - I look forward to working with our terrific team again next year!

Molly the Pony!!

We had a wonderful visitor in school this afternoon. The lovely ladies, Charlie and Maxine, from Quob Stables, brought Molly the pony to visit the children.
Charlie and Maxine were great with the children and we learnt alot about Molly and how to look after her.
All of the children stroked and brushed her and some of the children fed her carrots. Molly enjoyed the carrots so much she dribbled all over Charlie!!
Molly was very well behaved and the children had a fabulous time getting to know her.

Charlie and Maxine also left some information packs and activities for the children to do, which was very kind of them.

Thank you very much!!!!
Molly loved being stroked!!!

She dribbled when she was fed carrots!!

Molly enjoyed a wonderful brushing session.

She licked my hand!!!

This is so much fun!!

We led her around the field, it was so much fun!!

Reciting poetry

We have started looking at poetry this week in literacy. The children have been exploring the different poems found in the book 'Commotion in the Ocean'.

They have been looking at how rhyme is used in the poems and spent some of the morning learning one of the poems. They then performed their poem to the rest of the class and added actions.

And the winner is.....

And the results are in! Well done to Cleo, Amy, Laurie and Charlie C who made the most profit at the Summer Fair. Their Loom Band stall raised an amazing £52.50 for the PTA - well done, girls! For coming in the first place, each of them has won a £20 voucher for Nandos - we hope they have a fantastic meal!

However, we are also equally proud of everyone in Year 6. Their hard work resulted in a total of £235.58 being raised for the school! Once again, thank you to all of the pupils for their hard work and thank you to everyone who visited their stalls.

Our Willow Sculpture

An Artist called Angela Morely visited Year 3 and 4 today and created a willow character with the children.  They learnt a lot about how to construct a figure and put their weaving skills, learnt in Spring term, to the test today!

We have a skateboarding character inspired by Ben's design.
