On Wednesday afternoon, Sycamore and Oak class worked together. As Oak class have been finding out about the maiden voyage of the Titanic, we wanted to know what could they tell their buddy about the journey. The first task was to tell their buddy what they knew and, if possible to write down the fact on a post-it note, (otherwise the older buddy wrote down the information.) Finally, the children were given the opportunity to draw the Titanic.
The day before the Easter holidays, Sycamore class were lucky enough to go to Hurstbourne Tarrant Primary School to watch an interactive performance of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. The actors were fantastic at explaining the story and including the children as some of the actors. The class returned to school via the Test Way, eating a picnic lunch half-way home.
Our Geography and Music topic this term is all about Longitude and latitude. Our Music topic is rap - using Vanilla Ice - Ice, ice baby. Yesterday, we had an excellent music lesson - all the children were engaged and enjoyed answering the questions. At the end, the children were given the opportunity to move creatively to the music.
Earlier in the week, the children worked in pairs to show that they understood compass points and how to follow directions.
