On the 28th November, eight children from across year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to work with children's poet, Brian Moses for an able writers day. They took part in activities that encouraged their minds to broaden and think beyond the obvious in order to create imaginative and thought provoking poetry.
On Friday our Year 5 children enjoyed a trip to the Gulbenkien where they watched a performance called ‘Ramshackle House’. Then on Saturday a number of children took part in the pre-show curtain raiser performance, using the skills that they had learnt from the ‘Upswing’ circus performers who visited the school last week.
On Friday 17th November, across the whole school, children took part in the nationwide Big Draw event.
Using the event’s theme, Living Lines, classes enthusiastically experienced a window of time dedicated purely to art.
On Wednesday and Thursday our Year 4 children visited the Turner Gallery to take part in an Art project. They were exploring the work of the artist Jean Arp whose work is currently being exhibited at the gallery.
To recognise the time the children are devoting to their reading in school and at home, we have introduced a new weekly award which will be presented in assembly every Friday.
Well done 3HH who are this weeks Rocking Readers!
