Reception at Teddy Bears Picnic

During this Summer Term the children in EYFS have had music lessons delivered by Love Music Trust as part of our learning in Expressive Arts and Design.  The project has been based around the character of Barney Bear at the Seaside.  The children have learnt lots of different songs and music skills.

On Friday to celebrate our learning and development within the area of music Reception and Nursery went to take part in a celebration concert at Clonter Opera and a Teddy Bears Picnic.  The children all had a great time and they performed in the celebration concert brilliantly.

 

Fairtrade at Eaton Bank

On Thursday, Rohan, Fay, Gaby and Oliver R travelled to Eaton Bank Academy for a Fairtrade workshop session.

They went into a DT room with children from other schools and learnt about Fairtrade and talked about how farmers in other countries need to keep birds from eating their crops. They made windmill bird scarers which they decorated with images of birds of prey faces and eyes. Ollie’s artwork was even commented on by their art teacher- well done Ollie!

The group then went to a Geography class and learnt about how items are manufactured in other countries and are then traded for money and goods with other countries. They played a trading game where they had to manufacture shapes from paper which they could sell for money or trade with other teams for equipment. each team started off with different amounts of money and equipment.

Little Moreton Hall

Today Year 3 had a brilliant day at Little Moreton Hall. We learnt all about life in Tudors times. If you were rich, life wasn’t too bad but if you were poor there were many jobs that were rather unpleasant! The worst one being a gong scourer. We all made a tussy mussy each to ward off bad smells and illnesses. Some of today’s sayings come from the Tudor times – chairman of the board, board games, Sleep tight don’t let the bugs bite. Some of us learnt how to walk properly up and down the Long Gallery. The name Moreton comes from the open mouth of a wolf being called a “maw” and a small barrel called a “tonne”. We would all like to visit again!

Talk for Writing

This morning we have been busy changing our current class text ‘Meerkat Mail’, to tell our own journey story. We have each changed the main character and some of us have also changed the setting. When we had finished our story maps, we retold our version of the story to our friends.
