This week in Year 2 we were lucky enough to have a visitor from Bollywood Dream Dance. Each class got to learn a routine to some music in our own workshop session. Then we got to showcase our amazing skills to the other Year 2 classes. We had an amazing time and wanted to learn more routines. We could all choose a movement we liked the best and discuss why. This has been part of our topic work on India and we will be using the movements and routines as part of our Dance unit for the rest of the half term.
Well what an incredibly busy week it has already been. We attended the multi-skills event at Billesley Tennis Centre as a year group and had so much fun completing all of the different activities. Unfortunately, we did not win the competition however we took part and had lots of fun.
On Friday we had a huge amount of parents/carers attend our D.T. Inspire workshop. We managed to make our own bag by using our sewing techniques and even got to decorate it using our own designs. Thank you to everyone who came. We are already using our bags for many different things
It has been a very, very busy week in Year 6. The children have completed five assessments and it has been lovely to see how much progress most of the children have made. Those children who are completing additional work at home, for example completing CGP books and using Sumdog, have found the tests less daunting so please encourage your child to complete additional work - it really does make a difference!
The physical and artistic sides of the children were also brought out this week: 6S and 6N completed circuit training (there were a lot of red faces and aching legs by the end) and all year 6 children continued their Romero Britto inspired portraits in Art. There are some fabulous pieces of work and we look forward to seeing the completed pieces of work in a few weeks time!
