Happy Chinese New Year!
The EYFS classroom is all set up ready to celebrate. Later today, pupils in Nursery and Reception will be using their dragon puppets and masks to make up a dragon dance to Chinese music.
Yesterday afternoon, Year 1 tasted lots of exciting treats as well as making dragons and lanterns. Pupils were set a challenge to move hama beads from one pot to another using chopsticks. It was tricky but Isla successfully accomplished it!
8B have been playing a version of dominoes where they were matching up Spanish to English food items. It was a girls against boys competition and the girls won!
Love was in the air in Junior School yesterday.
After Miss Hardy’s assembly on the history of Valentine’s Day, hearts were left around for pupils to write about the things they love. Nursery and Reception made their own cards with special messages inside for family members. Year 1 and Year 5 made some fun love-themed items in Design and Technology with Mrs Cooper Cassady.
The Junior School House Music heats took place on Monday with a variety of performances including Wonderwall by Oasis, a duet from My Fair Lady, Mad World by Tears for Fears (piano arrangement) and lots from the new hit film The Greatest Showman!
