Weekly Update – 15.03.2019

We have had a fun and exciting week of learning!

In Monday’s Science the children learned about different types of severe wind. Ask your children if they remember the differences between hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones! Our studies culminated in the making of tornadoes in jars which was wonderful fun! Thank you to those who sent jars in and especially those of you who sent in many jars. Some contributed half a dozen or more and we really are very grateful. Next week we will be looking at extreme hot weather.

On Tuesday we created our printing blocks in art ready to create pop art repeating prints next week. In Music on Wednesday the children listened once again to Peter and the Wolf and discovered in greater detail how the instruments can tell a story in classical music. The rain held off just long enough for a lesson of tennis also on Wednesday afternoon.

This week has been ‘Good Manners Week’ and Certificates were awarded in a special assembly on Thursday. Activities relating to this have been taking place all week and the children have been learning a ‘rap’ about respect. The School Council took part in a Crafty Foxes art activity all Thursday afternoon, which they thoroughly enjoyed.

Today was ‘Fit Friday’ for Red Nose Day and all morning the children took part in a carousel of sporting activities It was nice to see many of you during our Huff n Puff session! A fun end to another busy week!

This term in English the children will be writing newspaper articles. On Friday afternoon, journalist Laura Nolan, from The Bury Free Press came in to talk to the children about what it’s like being a journalist. We all thoroughly enjoyed this and it has really inspired the children to write great newspaper articles.

Have a lovely weekend.
