Sunday, September 24, 2017

Following on from Friday’s ‘Jeans for Genes day’, this week’s Talk topic states

‘Lots of people wear jeans. Why?’

We are asking the children to consider why this is. Have fun finding out why people you know do or do not like wearing jeans.

Last week’s Talk topic about gold fish and what they dream about resulted in some fascinating discussions.

This week, in line with Roald Dahl’s birthday, our Talk topic is:

“You have the chance to meet Willy Wonka. What new sweet would you design? What would it taste like, look like, do?”

It was fantastic to see all of the children coming into school with their new uniform and they all looked very smart indeed!

We had a very exciting first few days back. As part of their house groups, the children spent time investigating their named scientists on Wednesday; some children had an opportunity to carry out their own investigations.

On Thursday, we held a whole school art day, learning about different artists within our classes. Year 5 looked at the work of Henri Matisse, making links with our history topic about the Ancient Greeks and Greek myths. We read the story of Daedalus and Icarus and recreated one of Matisse’s pieces ‘Icarus’, using his technique drawing with scissors.

Friday was spent celebrating our transition to becoming a Primary school. The children took part in a variety of activities, including circus skills, dance, making hats and bunting. The day ended with a picnic in the hall.
