Year 6 Production

Last Thursday, year six performed their end of year production. They will be performing it for a final time this week.

There are a few different people who myself, and year six, would like to thank for helping us prepare. Firstly, we would like to thank Mr Horsfall and Miss Holdsworth from BBEC. They came in on Monday mornings to help with casting, learning lines, learning the songs and the dances.

We would also like to thank Mr Dolphin for recording the performance, Mrs Riaz who stepped in on the morning to help with the girls’ hair,  and Mrs Artist for helping us learn the songs every Wednesday.

Whenever Mrs Killmartin has had a spare minute, she has made the time to come and help us. She has taught us dances, songs and has given us lots of advice and stage directions.

Finally, Mrs Lupton has worked extremely hard to ensure we have everything we need ready for the production. She has created all the settings and has gathered together everything needed for the costumes.

Year 6 Performance

Year six have just received a DVD from BBEC which contains the performance we did before Christmas. Unfortunately, the image footage wouldn’t transfer from the DVD to the blog, but there is an audio file which you can listen to.

Production – Week 2!

This week year six have worked really hard to learn their lines. On Monday morning, they managed to get through the first six scenes and practice a couple of the dance routines!

Well done, Year 4!

We’ve just had another fantastic week!

The children have been busy learning about Egypt, making Christingle oranges for our service in church, writing and performing their own poems. And these poems just blew our minds!

In Maths they did some work on symmetry and different types of lines. They also showed a lot of understanding and creativity when making symmetrical shapes with a partner in PE.

Well done, everyone!

Thank You, Year 4!

Thank you to Year 4 for making Miss Nixon and I feel welcome this week. We had a great time! You worked very hard every day but also had some fun learning and performing our rhythm and rap poem. A fantastic start to the new year!

Keep it up!

Here are some photos of your outstanding performances.

A big well done to year six! This morning they performed the songs, Revolting Children and When I Grow Up, which they have been practicing with Miss Holdsworth and Mr Horsfall. They are going to create a video of the performance which I will upload on the blog when they pass it on to us.

Year 2 – Drama Workshop

Year 2 took part in a drama workshop in which they learnt:

  1. How to project their voices.
  2. How to use facial expressions to show feelings and emotions.
  3. What a stereotype is.
  4. How to do a freeze frame.

They participated in activities to support their understanding of these four area of learning.IMG_1997

Children were interviewed by the rest of the class whilst they took on the role of a different character.

Then in small groups they created a “freeze frame” to show a range of jobs.

Can you guess what jobs the children are showing?

Check out the facial expressions to see if they help you.
