    Swimming Reminder

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Just to let you all know, hopefully the message was relayed by the kids, tomorrow we have swimming after lunch. Please provide kit as usual and snacks for afterwards. It is also essential that the children have suntan lotion for them to apply before they go in the pool. The glare from the water means they are more likely to get burnt from the sun, this is something we want to avoid. Any child without suntan lotion will, I'm afraid, have to miss out on swimming. Please, please, please provide some lotion so that this doesn't happen. Many thanks!

    The stage is up!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Years three and four were very excited to practice the production for the first time on the stage! It definitely made a difference to the children who were able to better gauge movements for their characters; we were able to run through the whole thing too! The songs are coming on, we just need confidence, the choreography is coming along nicely and the production as a whole is coming along amazingly. I think I speak for myself and Mrs Goodwin when I say the stage transformed some performances today. Shout out to William Crossman from Year 3! What an epic duck!

    Colour Blind Testing

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    As part of our whole school topic on 'The Day the Crayons Quit' Year Four ventured into the world of colourblindness. We talked about and discussed being red/green colour blind, yellow/blue colour blind and being monochromatic - people who can't see any colours. The children were fascinated and this was enhanced when they discovered that our very own Mr Clarke is colour blind. We attempted to make some tests which could be used to determine if someone was colour blind.

    Tennis!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    We were very lucky to have a lady come in and try a bit of tennis with some of the years. I can say that Year Four all really enjoyed their time. They practised using the racquets, bouncing balls and a few different games too. Everyone gave it their best shot which was great to see and I think we could have some future Wimbledon Winners amongst the class. Remember me for the Gold Box!

    Search Engine Fun

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    In computing we have looked into how to use the fabulousness of Google in a way which is easier to manage and in a way which means you don't have to scroll through hundreds and thousands and gazillions of pointless pages. Year Four learnt that if you add speech marks on either side of your words aswell as using and, the search narrows down a heap! "good" and "work"

    Literacy Drama

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    For the past few weeks in my Year 3 and 4 Literacy group we have used the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as inspiration for some drama. The children have learnt how to write a play-script and have all become playwrights in the duration of this genre. The effort that has gone into this work has been phenomenal from songs being written to elaborate scenery such as jacuzzis and aeroplanes (just from one group!) they were all a joy to watch and I was amazed by the variety of plays we had! We all started off by creating a storyboard and each group could plan to write a maximum of six scenes...
