On Thursday, we held our class talent show to see who would go through to the whole school talent show next Friday. We had a variety of different talents on show and everyone who auditioned and participated did brilliantly! Huge congratulations to Ada, Ann, Maks, Paris and Tobi from Beech Class and Róisín, Hanan, Riannette, Yasmiin and Deniz from Laurel Class on their fabulous auditions. We can’t wait to see them perform on Friday!
As part of our Viking study, we visited Dublinia and got to experience what life was like for the Vikings. We saw the types of clothing they wore, the food they ate, weapons they made and even got to sit in a Viking home!
The Beech and Laurel classes came together in January during their study of the Vikings! They chose an aspect of Viking life that interested them and completed a research project together. It was great to get to work with new people and the end results are just fantastic!
Well done everyone!
Beech Class began learning how to play badminton 2 weeks ago. We've been working really hard and are making huge progress! Everyone is really enjoying playing a sport they may not have tried before!
Beech and Laurel Class have teamed up to create projects on Viking Life! One person from Laurel Class teamed up with someone from Beech Class to work together creating a project on one aspect of Viking Life. We spent last week gathering information on our topics and organizing it into paragraphs. We were hard at work in both classrooms creating our handwritten posters. All groups have put in a huge amount of effort and we can’t wait to see the rest of the presentations tomorrow!
Beech class have been learning loads about the Vikings for January. We've learned about their customs and traditions, their laws (and punishments!), how they raided and plundered and have started working on projects with the Laurel Class! This week we started a large painting project around the theme of Viking Longships. We made the longship the focus of the painting but we wanted each painting to tell a story. We planned and sketched our ideas and today we began painting! Instead of just taking out all the different colour paints, the Beech Class were challenged to use only the primary colours, black and white to create all the colours they needed. We used paper plates as palettes to create lots of different colours!
Beech and Laurel had their first rehearsal in front of the rest of the school today! We're looking forward to performing the finished version on Friday!
All appointments for parent teacher meetings for Beech class should be live on Aladdin. I'm just adding the schedule here also in case you don't have access to Aladdin!
PETNS bought a green screen recently and Beech class decided to take on the challenge of being the first class to use it. We decided the best way to learn how to use it was just to play around with it and try out some different ideas. The end result was these photos! We are using them for creative writing next week.
