French Horn Lesson

Today we have had a great french horn lesson. We have been practcing the notes E and F and been playing some songs that include these notes. We talked about musical terms and how the origin of a lot of musical terminology is Italian.

Today’s Eco Council Meeting

The Eco Council’s current topic is Health and Well-Being.

During today’s Eco Council meeting we were joined by Louise, School Canteen Nutritionist.  The children participated in an Eatwell Guide workshop. By the end of the session the children were able to use the Eatwell Guide to help them to understand how to get a  balance of healthier and more sustainable food.

What is Bikeability?

Bikeability is a national standard cycle training programme designed to give cyclists the skills and confidence to cycle safely, in modern road conditions.

Congratulations to the children in year’s 3 and 4 that took part in Bikeability over the last two weeks.  They have successfully completed Level 1.  Well done!

Cycling Together

Why not start cycling together?

Riding bikes is a great family activity and you can help

support your child with their Bikeability training at the same time.

Choose a quiet place away from traffic –

the park is perfect, and start by practicing looking back over your shoulder and giving hand

signals whilst maintaining control of the bike. You could also help by showing them how to select the correct gear and use the brakes with control. Simply getting out and about on 2 wheels will improve your child’s confidence.

Dilemma stories

This term the children have been learning about dilemma stories.  They have read lots of examples and have been given several difficult scenarios to consider and make decisions about.  The are currently in the process of writing the next chapter in our Language Literacy story ‘Lost or Stolen’ and will complete the dilemma and consequences sections as an IPAW next week.
