Birch Star Writer

Star writer in Birch this week is Ronnie Marshall. He has successfully created a description about an owl using a variety of vocabulary and has managed to keep his handwriting neat and tidy. Well done Ronnie!

How much do you know about your favourite author?

Today Birch class used their ICT skills to research their favourite author. The children enjoyed finding some unknown facts and presented their findings on a PowerPoint presentation. Excellent work Birch, well done!

Who helps you?

In relation to our, 'Who helps us?' dress up day today I would like to say a big well done to all the children who dressed up and donated. In particular the children of Birch class who looked fantastic in their costumes, super effort year 3/4!

Year 4 Street dance

Year 4 were extremely lucky this week and had the opportunity to be taught by a professional street dancer. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning some new moves and they successfully created a group dance. Well done year 4!

Lets go fly a kite!

This afternoon, Rowan class had the opportunity to make and fly their own kites. The children showed great reciprocity as they worked together as a team to help one another construct their kites. As we emerged from the classroom, kites in hand, the wind began to lift the kites straight away. It took a lot of resilience to get all the kites airborne, but by the end of the afternoon, with some help from friends, all the kites danced happily in the air.    

BBC Ten Pieces in Rowan

Last week Rowan class began making music without instruments. Following our cinema trip to watch BBC Ten Pieces, the children showed great enthusiasm in attempting to replicate one of the ten pieces. In groups children investigated how they could use their bodies to make different types of sounds. Through combing these sounds the children began to develop their own rhythmical beats.
