What we have been doing this week.
We hope you all have a fantastic half term break. Please note that there will be no homework sent home for the week.
In RE, we have been learning about the traditions and cultures of the religion, Hinduism. The children have enjoyed creating rangoli patterns using vibrant colours and learning about the Festival of Light 'Diwali'.
On Friday, we were lucky to have a visitor, Daya, who came in to deliver a series of workshops about her religion. The children dressed in traditional clothing and took part in dance, meditation and even wrote their name in Punjabi.
Maritime Museum Trip
On Thursday, Yr5 & 6 enjoyed a visit to the Maritime Museum. We had a fantastic, fun filled and educational time, enjoying three different workshops including a tour of the museum, how to make a rope and heard a first hand recount of the events that took place before the Titanic sank from Captain Edward J Smith.
All members of staff at the museum commented on how the behaviour and interest from the children was excellent, which makes us very proud them all indeed. We now look forward to applying all this knowledge into our up and coming learning of our topic.
Welcome Back! We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year.
On Thursday, we travelled back in time to the year 1912 as we launched our topic for this term - The Titanic. We were very impressed with the way the children took part in all of the activities, including the clothing that was worn to show the different classes of passengers on board.
In First Class, we were very elegant as we showed off our dance skills by learning the Waltz. In Second Class, the children were able to compose and perform their own music as musicians on board the Titanic and in Third Class, we had great fun playing card games and listening to some Irish music.
