Our completed frog life cycle! Year 3, by Miss Healey

Date: 26th Apr 2022 @ 4:00pm

Last half term we began our frog life cycle with putting frogspawn in our pond and keeping some in our classroom to observe over the next few weeks. We noted lots of changes and watched as our frogspawn became tadpoles, then froglets with hind legs, fore legs and finally a distinguished head. Once we came back after the Easter holidays, we found the tails of our froglets had disappeared and our tiny little frogs were sat on the rocks out of the water breathing air! We then went to our pond, placing them gently back in their natural habitat. Hopefully we will get new frogspawn next Spring to fully complete our cycle. Take a look at our little frogs!

4J Cornet Concert - April 22, by Mr Jolly

Date: 7th Apr 2022 @ 4:40pm

Over the last three months, 4J have been learning to play the cornet. They built up their initial skills by learning individual notes of C, D and E. Then they learnt to play songs with one note and then multiple notes. Finally, they learnt another note - B flat -  in order to play and sing the well known song - The Eye of the Tiger.

The concert today was the culumiation of their hard work with Mr Merter. They played and sung six different pieces of music:

1. Cha Cha Cha 
2. William Tell
3. Boogie Shoes
4. Limbo Rock
5. Achy Braky Leg
6. Eye of the Tiger

Well done on your performance. KS2 and the parents who attended thoroughly enjoyed it.

World Book Day in 4J - March 22, by Mr Jolly

Date: 7th Mar 2022 @ 4:45pm

On Friday, Year 4 caught up with the rest of the school and we had our World Book Day celebrations.  We started the day with some drama games to get us into working in groups and building our confidence to speak and act. Mrs Freeman gave Year 4 the book, "Voices in the Park," by Anthony Browne. This book is about four gorillas, a mother, a father,a son and a daughter from different backgrounds. We had lots of fun looking at  pictures of the characters and deciding what kind of person they would be, what they would say, how they would talk. We created our own little scenes and acted them out, before we even read the book. Well done 4J, I was very impressed with your group work today. You worked co-operatively and listened realy ell to each other.

Your costumes as always were fantastic-thanks to parents and carers!
