The Year 4 WOW day for the ‘Gods and Mortals’ topic went very well on Monday with the children being immersed into the world of the Ancient Greeks. Some amazing costumes were on show, both from the adults and the children!
Year 5 held their WOW day today for their ‘Hola Mexico!’ topic. As well as a Latin American inspired ‘Mathsico’ session, the pupils created their own decorative skull, in keeping with the ‘Day of the dead’ celebrations, and sampled a range of Mexican food. Many thanks to Mrs Powell for her hard work in preparing the feast of enchiladas, tortillas, salsa, guacamole and churros.
This afternoon we were fortunate to have considerable success at the annual Town Sports event at King’s Park stadium. The children took part in a variety of events which included 60m, 75m, 150m, 600m, long jump and ball throw.
We were incredibly proud of each and every one of our children, who were a real credit to our academy. Of particular note were the successes of Ellie, who achieved a gold medal for the 600m event, and Frankie, who achieved a third place time in the 75m. This achievement means that these two children are now eligible for county events.
Year 6 began their Ukulele lessons with Mrs Murray today. These sessions will not only teach the basics of playing a stringed instrument, but will also cover musical notation and inter-dependence when playing as part of an ensemble.
Year 4 pupils in 4B, 4L and 4D held a performance to showcase their drumming this afternoon. We are very proud of the courage and interdependence that was displayed. It was lovely to see so many parents supporting their efforts. The parents’ performance was great too! We’re looking forward to 4U and 4P’s turn tomorrow!
Year 6 have dissected owl pellets today as part of their topic on evolution. These pellets contain the indigestible remains of the animals eaten by the owls, which are regurgitated. A huge range of bones was found, as well as stones and fur.
