During the spring term all children in Year 5 and 6 will have the opportunity to learn to play the Djembe drum with Mrs Richards, a specialist music teacher.
The children are enjoying the workshops so far and the teachers are trying really hard to get the beat too!
Miss Young accompanied 12 Year 3 and 4 children to the Sportshall Athletics event at Queens Park. The children had been training hard after school, for 6 weeks, in preparation for the event and their commitment and determination paid off as they all performed brilliantly! They even managed to win some of their events! Well done to everyone, you represented our school brilliantly.
As part of our Fairy Tales Topic the Robins and Wrens learnt about the artist Lucy Loveheart. They studied her paintings of Chatsworth House and went on to be real artists to create their own artwork of Chatsworth using Lucy Loveheart’s style. We were so excited about our fantastic paintings that we even sent a few copies to Lucy Loveheart herself and the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire!
Neptune class have designed their own posters and videos to remind us all how to stay safe on-line.
As part of our Fairy Tales topic we have been learning about The Gingerbread Man. We have taken part in lots of creative activities linked to the story, including hot seating different characters, making symmetrical Gingerbread houses and following a set of instructions to make our own Gingerbread Men!
