After learning to play brass and woodwind instruments in Year 5 and enjoying the opportunity to perform alongside the Halle Orchestra, our Year 6 children are impressing us each week with their musical talents. Now confident with the basics, the children are rehearsing different pieces of music each week and we can’t wait to share recordings of these with you towards the end of the half term. Marvelous music, Year 6!
The Strawberry group had a lovely visit to Longton library this morning. We were met by Sandra the librarian who took us to our area where we sat to sing songs, played instruments and played the parachute game. Sandra shared two lovely stories with us, ‘The Best Kind of Bear’ and ‘Don’t wake the Bear Hare!’ The children then carefully chose two stories to bring home to share with their families.
Thank you to Mr Hodgson and Mrs Ali for helping us.
I am so proud of your exceptional behaviour and look forward to taking you next time. I hope you enjoy your stories.
Thank you for Ally-Rae who kindly showed us the Chinese lantern she had made at Brownies to celebrate Chinese New Year. She explained that red is the lucky colour and 2023 is the year of the rabbit.
What better way to learn about Winter and snow than to go out and enjoy it!
The children made footprints, made marks with sticks, made snow potions, talked about how it felt and the change in it when we held it. There was also a few snow angels on the field. We had an amazing time!
We would love to hear any comments made by your children.
Have a lovely weekend
Today Year One have learned about their five senses. The children have used their sense of smell, sight, touch and hearing to play a little guessing game.
Congratulations to Nevaeh who has been awarded a rosette for her fantastic tap and ballet dancing. She proudly showed us all today, well done Nevaeh!
In English we have been learning about Paddington Bear and all about instructions. What better way to combine the two than making some marmalade sandwiches – Paddington’s favourite. Unfortunately, some of us weren’t as keen on the marmalade as Paddington is.
