Wedding Bells

   Congratulations to Miss Baker our Nursery teacher who is getting married on Saturday. When she comes back she will be known as Mrs Morgan! We wish her all the best on her wedding day and a very happy future with Mr Morgan.  We have had lots of fun today helping her celebrate.  Why don’t you ask her to tell you about it when you see her!

Sports Competitions

Last Friday year 4 and 4 of our year 3’s went to Beauchamp Middle School to play Tag Rugby, Goal ball and Orienteering. In Tag Rugby everyone has two rugby tags and they chase the person with the ball and take their tags off to stop them scoring a goal. In Goal ball everyone is blindfolded and you have to sit down listen for the ball which has bells in it to score in the opponent’s goal. In orienteering, you and your team have a map and you have to pick a ball out. The numbers are 1 to 9. Whatever number you get you look on the map and go to the question and you have to guess the answer.  If you get the same number again, you have to take the ball out and you pick another ball out and you’re finished!!!

Ukulele Lessons Part 2

In Year 4, we have been continuing with our ukulele lessons. This week we learned about the different beats and the musical notes.These notes were quaver, crochet, minim, semi-breve. A quaver is ½ a beat, a crotchet is 1 beat, a minim is 2 beats and a semi breve is 4 beats. We are learning a riff to go with the song ‘hit the road Jack’. More on our lessons next time!  By Halima

School Council Tasks

The school council have been asking questions to two teachers who wanted to join our school and be our new head teacher. The questions were hard to answer. Both of the teachers were impressed with the questions made by the children. We asked questions like; Why do you want to be our head teacher? What can you do for our school? The governors were watching the school council ask the questions. The governors were very impressed. By Amiur

Romans

In Years 3 and 4, we have been learning about the Romans. According to the Roman legend, Romulus was the founder of Rome. Rich Romans had food cooked at home in the kitchen by slaves. Men wore a knee length tunic. Roman men wore a cloak over their tunic. Important Romans dressed in a long robe called a toga. Rich Romans could go to the communal baths to clean themselves although the water could get pretty grimy by the end of the day but it was better than not having a bath. Or was it? By Jennifer
