Year 4 have been enjoying dance sessions at Sedgehill led by Hannah, and assisted by Jordan, our wonderful Year 12 students. After warming up, the children have been working on amazing dances , body locking, waves and break dancing. Everyone really enjoyed the free style dance battle. Watch out Britain’s Got Talent!!
Year 4 are so eager to learn their words for the forthcoming Christmas Carol Service that lots of booklets were sneaked out to play! The playground was filled with the sound of beautiful singing voices and soon many of the year 5 and 6 ‘s joined in. I think the Carol service will be the best one ever!
In history Year 6 have been learning about Benin as their non-European study. One of the lessons involved visiting the Horniman Museum to take part in a workshop which supported the work done in class. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit where they learnt about the culture, beliefs and achievements of this ancient African kingdom. During the workshop the children listened to stories and handled replica brass artifacts made especially for the Museum in modern day Benin. A great day!
As part of our study of Science Fiction, several children in year 5 chose to make a robot at home. They made these charming characters using only household items such as bottle tops, foil and cereal boxes. “Don’t worry – they all have a self-destruct button… just in case they get out of control!” one of the robot makers has assured us. Well done to all who had a go!
Y3 have had a fantastic day at Horton Kirby on Wednesday. The children discovered what life was like for people during the Stone Age in Britain: they took part in an archaeological dig to discover what tools people used, turned themselves into a stone age tribe and used authentic weapons to recreate a hunt and experienced the difficulties of cave painting with natural materials in Horton Kirby’s own cave. At the end of the day they even had a go lighting a fire using some flint stones!
A great time was had by all children, parent helpers and teachers.
