This week in Karate the children have been working on their 'Tobikomizuki' - the 'flying' punch. They had to use control, power and speed.

Harvest Assembly

 

We enjoyed performing our Harvest Samba for our Assembly. Each Class in school took part in one of the Harvest Assemblies which were spread across three sessions. It was brilliant to have so many of our families join us.

Partake

 

On Wednesday we enjoyed a fabulous visit from Partake, we spent the day taking part in activities linked to our topic - World War II. In the morning we learned two different dances... The Lambeth Walk and The Jitterbug. We looked at some artefacts and talked about their uses, we listened to a radio broadcast, imagining that we were in the war and had fun creating our own bunting. A brilliant day was had by all.

Black Out Poems

 

This week have been introduced to the concept of Blackout Poetry. The words for a Blackout Poem are already written on the page but the poet chooses words from the text to create their poem and black out the text that is not needed. We tried out this technique to create our own poetry.

This week we enjoyed our first D.A.R.E lesson. We met our D.A.R.E Officer and prepared ourselves for the lessons ahead. We are really looking forward to working through the program and will show off the things we have learned in a special assembly in the future.

World War II Inspired Art

 

This week as part of our World War II topic we have created different types of art using a variety of materials. The first inspiration for our art work was the poppy, we sketched, painted and made 3d poppies. For our next piece we used our shading skills to complete a portrait.
