On the Ning Nang Nong

This half term year five are studying nonsense poetry in English. This week they have been learning the poem ‘On the Ning Nang Nong’ by Spike Milligan which goes like this:

On the Ning Nang Nong

Where the Cows go Bong!

and the monkeys all say BOO!

There’s a Nong Nang Ning

Where the trees go Ping!

And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.

On the Nong Ning Nang

All the mice go Clang

And you just can’t catch ’em when they do!

So its Ning Nang Nong

Cows go Bong!

Nong Nang Ning

Trees go ping

Nong Ning Nang

The mice go Clang

What a noisy place to belong

is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

 

Here are some pictures of the children performing the poem:

Trip to York Chocolate Story- Year 4

Last Wednesday, Year 4 had an amazing day in York.

They had a guided tour of York Chocolate Story to learn all about the history of chocolate and the importance of York and its chocolate factories. They tasted lots of different kinds of chocolate and had a Science workshop in the Methodist Church hall where they learnt about the process of melting and cooling and made their own chocolate wallpaper.

The children were a credit to our school as they all behaved impeccably all day!

Well done, Year 4!

Carols with the Choir

The children in the choir did us proud today as they put on a fantastic show for the members of St Paul’s Church. They sang their hearts out and entertained every one with their amazing choreography and Christmas jokes.

It was also very nice to see them mingle with our guests and serve them drinks or mince pies.

They are all super stars and so are their “managers” (Mr Collier and Mrs Barraclough)!
