What we have been doing this week.
On Monday, we waved off some of our Yr 6 children as they headed off to Barton Hall. The rest of us had a fun filled week enjoying a range of different activities.
We started the week designing our own theme park, thinking about space, budget and profit margins and what could affect the running of the park.
On Wednesday, we were invited to Penrice Academy for a Shakespeare workshop alongside other primary schools. The staff were impressed with their enthusiasm but particularly with their exemplary behaviour.
As the sun shone on Friday, we headed out for some outdoor learning. Starting with some games, we then created winged creatures using natural materials before writing a story based on their character.
To celebrate the end of SATs, the year 6 children headed off to the beach to relax, play games and paddle in the sea as the sun shone down. Well done Year 6!
On Tuesday this week, we were in the secret garden to take part in our school's prayer week. We completed some lovely activities including; tying prayers to trees using rainbow coloured ribbon (God's promise), praying for someone we would like see come to know the love of God, asking God for forgiveness by writing it on a pebble and dropping it into the pond and asking God to take away something we are scared of by writing it on coloured paper and nailing it to a cross. This was a thought provoking time and the children had time to reflect and discuss each activity.
This week, we have been continuing with our Aboriginal art using Pointillism. So far the children have created images of Australian animals with some stunning results.
On Thursday, we were visited by the Seymour Gospel Hall to deliver a Bible workshop about The Pilgrim's Progress. The children listened to an interactive story with characters, acting and story boards to immerse them.
Welcome back to the Summer Term, we hope you had a fantastic Easter break.
Today was the launch of our topic 'Where will your journey take you?'. Over the next few weeks, we will be studying 4 different countries, including America, France, India and Australia. To introduce this we took part in a variety of different activities such as , Indian dance, Volleyball and Disney art.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday afternoon for our Immersive Open Afternoon.
