Performing Poetry

Following on from Newport's wonderful Christmas production "Squeak", Year 6 pupils were keen to showcase  their acting,speaking and listening skills this week whilst studying the humourous poem entitled Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth -Toast by Charles Causley. 
A makeshift set was assembled in the library and with the minimum of rehearsal time, Mrs Fieldgate's group  produced two videos-we do hope you enjoy watching them.

Do you feel sorry for the poor old spectre? Or do you admire the cunning Colonel for the clever way in which he evicts the spectre from his new home?

Year 4- Hungry for Hockey!

This week year 4 participated in an inter-house hockey tournament. Our team colours competed against each other in a series of matches for the honour of year 4 hockey heroes!

Take a look at our photos which show some of the new skills that we have learnt in our PE lessons this half term.

Creating hand puppets!

Year 3 have been getting creative this week and making our own hand-puppets to go alongside the story of the 3 Little Pigs. The children could choose whether they were going to make a wolf or a pig.

Firstly, the children had to draw their designs. Once this had been done they had to choose the which felt they would use and start cutting and sewing the pieces together. For some of the children it was the first time they were independently sewing without adult help, so a very proud moment for them! All of the children produced fantastic hand-puppets that they can keep and be very proud of.

We will be displaying the puppets at our exhibition at the end of this term for the parents to come in and see.
