KS1 Class Carnival!

On Friday 30th November KS1 took part in their very own Class Carnival! We created our own headdresses and musical instruments in preparation.  Everyone had chance to parade around, showing off their wonderful headdresses before we all played our instruments together, finding the beat within different pieces of traditional Brazilian music. Finally, we learnt some basic Salsa moves and had a go at dancing the Salsa to the music. We had lots of fun together celebrating our topic, Rio De Vida!

 

Welcome to Class 3SW

Our Class Teacher Mrs Houghton is currently on maternity leave but is returning to us just before Christmas.

We currently have Mr Britton teaching us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Challinor on Thursday and Friday.

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK

4SD have been studying a poem that is called Unique. It is about loving yourself and those around you. It tells us to celebrate being different and not to hate on being different.

 Imagine how boring would it be if everybody was the same!

 

ROMAN LAUNCH DAY 3.11.18

Year 3/4 had such a memorable day to launch their new topic ‘I am Warrior’. Take a look at some of our photos.

The children thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as Romans and taking part in fun activities: making Roman mosaic tiles; baking pizza muffins; designing their own shields; making a laurel wreath; and role playing a Roman battle against the Celts.

4SD have made a lovely display of poppies to remember those who
