The UKS2 Christmas Party this year was an absolute classic! Some hilarious games were played (with the children displaying a scary talent for musical statues...), and the forfeits produced some timeless performances! Great fun, everyone. Merry Christmas!
Year 5 had a truly great time making Mayan-style hot chocolate this afternoon, though it would be fair to say that some enjoyed the taste more than others! We used a range of equipment and a historically sound recipe to make the drinks - a fun and fascinating experience all round!
Year 5 had a brilliant time on our Christmas Crafts morning, ending up in Mrs Thomson's classroom where they got to craft themselves some cupcakes! What an unexpected treat! 😁
Year 5 have brought together their English composition skills and deep knowledge of our class novel 'The Explorer' this week, writing recounts of the events of the last chapter from the main character's point of view. Each piece represents the great progress the children have made across the past term. Fine work all round!
Years 5 & 6 were treated to a wonderful visit from Mr Davies, author of 'See-Thru Man and The Land of Pleasant', today. It was fantastic to hear from a local writer, and Mr Davies was full of great advice and inspiration about storytelling. The children had some very insightful questions, and some were lucky enough to come away with a signed copy of the book! It was a lovely afternoon all round. A big thank-you to Mr Davies, and congratulations to those children who'll now be reading all about the mysterious See-Thru Man!
The class have been working on some exceptional nonfiction writing this week - here they are, thoughtfully proof-reading and editing their first draft in various quiet spaces around the classroom!
We've had a brilliant first art lesson of the new half-term, moving into line skills using a drawing pen. The class absolutely loved using the various widths of line to create different effects and work in different styles - their early experiments are amazing!
