Year 6 have been enjoying a variety of activities this week including Bamboo Tamboo drumming with Mrs Murray. The children learnt new rhythms and patterns using the Bamboo Tamboos to create beautiful music.
Year 6 have been learning to play the ukulele with Mrs Murray this term. They have used many different techniques and they are creating some wonderful, tuneful music.
Over the next few weeks, Year 6 will be contributing to our blog as part of their ‘Tomorrow’s World’ topic. We are all very excited to read their comments!
Year 6 had glorious weather for their trip to Hengistbury Head today. They investigated coastal defences and features, as well as plotting the geography of the local Bournemouth area, considering wildlife and habitats within the park and learning some additional history relating to their evolution topic.
Today’s assembly theme was ‘Caring for the oceans’, with a particular focus on the increasing levels of plastic within the world’s water. Whilst an important message for everyone, the theme was of particular relevance for Year 4 (who studied ‘Blue abyss’ during the first half of the term) and for Year 6 (who have studied coastal features and will be visiting Hengistbury Head tomorrow).
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.
