Cater-pillar of the community
These are my caterpillars, they arrived at the beginning of March as tiny little specks. I have been waiting for them to turn into butterflies and have really enjoyed watching the process of them growing. They are now in their cocoons so I know it won't be long now.
It's Shakespeare Week this week and Year 3 have immersed themselves into the world of Shakespeare!
We have read Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as writing our own cinquain poem. We have taken a virtual tour of The Globe theatre and made up our own Shakespearian insults using traditional Shakespearian language. At the end of the week, we put on our own renditions of Romeo & Juliet and Macbeth and performed these in the outdoor playground theatre.
This week Year 2 have been expanding their ICT skills in the computer room. We are becoming really confident at using the different applications on a PC and we are working on Powerpoint this week.
Year 2 were able to use the various fonts, styles and lettering. They have also begun to explore the wonders of animation. There was a lot of laughter as the children had pictures zooming and fading in!
The children are looking forward to what we can add next time.
Space Dress-Up Day
in Nursery last week, the children have been learning about PEOPLE WHO HELP US. This has been an amazing topic with lots to see and do. Here are a few pictures of the children dressed up as Firefighters and Police Officers.
The children also earned badges for being very helpful, just like the people who help us. Well done, Nursery superstars!
This week, the Nursery have been on a Spring Walk in Belair Park. There were so many interesting signs of Spring to spot. The ducks in the pond were a favourite.
