Music 

We had great fun learning our new song in music today. We are trying to learn an instrumental part to it using the xylophones and glockenspiels. It is very hard to learn the song and then to still sing. It is made even harder when the teacher likes to improvise some words!

We donated money to the charity 'Sport Relief' in order to wear our 'sports gear.'

The Vikings are coming!
The children enjoyed filling a (long) roll of wallpaper with all of the interesting facts they discovered about the Vikings.  Livinia found out that the word Viking means pirate and Lincoln was fascinated by the various methods of punishment the Vikings had for their enemies.

Year 6 visited HMS Trincomalee where we took part in a workshop called All Hands on Deck.  The children investigated nautical artifacts, deciphered codes using flags, explored food and drink on board a ship, were taught to tie a variety of knots and their favourite activity of all - dressing up!  We explored the ship and will be using our first hand experience to help with our writing.  Staff at the centre were very impressed by the thoughtfulness of the pupils questions.
We explored composition and tone during art week.
