During Arts week, children in key stage 1 listened to traditional tales from Ireland. They sang songs and tried out a range of craft and art activities. They also enjoyed having a go at Irish dancing and dancing round the maypole.
During Arts Week, the EYFS children learnt about English Folklore Tales. We used the story of Tom Thumb and Robin Hood as inspiration for our creative activities throughout the week. The children took part in ‘Maypole Dancing’ workshops and a musical ‘Spoons’ session. The children had lots of fun and developed a range of new skills. They also made a small Tom Thumb puppet and a shoebox house / garden for him to live in! Well done to all the EYFS children for all their hard work and creativity throughout the week.
We had a fantastic afternoon at Holmebrook Valley Park for the Year 3 ‘Fun2Run’ competition. Five boys and five girls from Year 3 took part in the big race! All the children were amazing, with some stand-out performances from individual runners. In the end, both teams ran so well that they won the entire competition overall, and brought back another huge winners’ cup to add to our ever growing collection. Brilliant!
On Wednesday 11th April, all the children in Year 3 and 4 pupils travelled to York to visit the Viking exhibition at Jorvik. They all had an absolutely brilliant day learning about the Vikings and their influence on Britain, and trying out their archaeology skills too. It really did inspire everyone’s interest in this term’s topic.
