Today we gave out our Believe, Achieve, Succeed awards to 3 children from each class. These awards are prestigious and given out to those children who have made the most progress during the Autumn term. Well done to everyone!
Year 5 celebrated their new topic with 'Greek Day' yesterday which was a huge success. They started their journey to Ancient Greece by partaking in some of the popular Greek arts. They made beautiful masks, which they then wore to present their Greek myth theatre. After that, they were hungry for a snack, so everyone tried some Greek delicacies including pita bread, tzatziki, feta cheese and yogurt. They ended the day finishing their art projects - Kipling class made Greek Pots and Morpurgo class made Greek Lyres.
The year group had such a wonderful time, thank you to the wonderful Miss Ghedia and Miss Naulls for organising such a wonderful day!
A huge well done to everyone in Lower School who took part in this year's production! This year, the performance was called 'The Inn Crowd' which told the story of a group of disgruntled animals in a stable watching the people of Bethlehem celebrate Census Day - Merry Census! They were up in arms and paws when they found out that their owner had let the last little square of space in the barn to a pregnant lady... This is starting to sound familiar...
Well done to the Year 4s who performed their roles beautifully and thank you to the Year 3s for helping with the singing!
What a production! Congratulations to our Year 6s who performed their take on the Cinderella story this week, wowing the audience with not only their singing voices, their wit and their acting talents too! The show received rave reviews from everyone who attended and all agree it’s a shame that Wednesday's performance was the last one!
Thank you to all the Year 5s who came to support our Year 6s with their fantastic singing voices.
Yesterday, our Year 4 Reading Gladiators competed against other schools in the local area by performing a 10 minute presentation on a book of their choice from the Reading Gladiators programme and took part in a book quiz. All of the schools involved did an amazing job with their performances but there was only one winner...
IT WAS US!
This week, some of our budding scientists from Years 5 and 6 went on a Science Trip to the Big Bang Science Conference in Aston Clinton where they attended three workshops based on Sound, Fuelling Rockets and Insects. The 'Rocket Fuelling' involved designing a KNex cage to carry a 1.5 litre bottle which was then filled with air (its fuel) and racing them across the room. At the Insects workshop, they looked at the properties of insects, how bees support farmers and the pupils even held cockroaches! For the Sound workshop, they thought about pitch and volume and saw sound using a Rubens Tube filled with camping gas which was then set alight. At the end of the day, the pupils attended the STEM Fair where they got to go around all the different stalls learning a whole load of things including shapes, recycling, blood pressure, water and circuits!
