  • Our Roman Warriors...

    Published 21/05/18, by Classical Class

    Jazz and Classical classes took part in Roman Day on Monday. It was a fantastic day and one in which the children will certainly remember for a long time. 

    We began the day with a gladiatorial catwalk to show off our brilliant costumes. When we returned to class we had to show off some culinary skills, making some classic Roman bread and tasting some of the very vegetables that the Romans brought over to our country with them when they invaded.

    In the afternoon we took part in some weapons training on a device called 'the pell', which prepared us for a battle between both classes! They went head to head and staged the theatrical battle scene which you can view in the video below! 

    A huge thank you to the parents who supported the event, both at our catwalk and in providing the children with their costumes!

  • Tag Rugby!

    Published 15/05/18, by Classical Class

    Year 3 have been learning all about Tag Rugby during PE this term! First of all we learnt how to correctly pass a rugby ball in order to improve our chances of keeping possession, then we added the tag belts to the mix. These belts are used as defenders attempt to prevent the other team scoring by "tagging" – pulling a velcro attached tag from the ball carrier, rather than a full contact tackle.

    Next lesson we will be completing a full Tag Rugby match to conclude our learning about the game!

    Mr Brown and Mr Carbon began the brand new year 3 golf club today! We focused on the basic aspects of the game, including sportsmanship, good manners, posture, hand-eye coordination and patience and discussed the equipment needed to play.

    The children had a lot of fun and began working on developing a basic swing technique. Next week we will look at the many rules of the game!

    If you have not signed your child up for the club yet, please do not hesitate to in the school office, or see me at the end of the school day.

  • Getting into character!

    Published 04/05/18, by Classical Class

    In literacy we have been looking at mystery stories! Today we had to delve deep into the minds of our individual characters and act out an interview between suspects and their interrogators! Some children played the parts of Adil and Katie, two children who were trying to solve a complex mystery. Others took on the role of a suspect and had to come up with a alibi to prove their innocence! The dialogue exchanges that took place were then written up in our big write books.
