As part of their homework project, Year 4 had to create a Viking Longboat using any materials of their choice. Mrs Shedden and Mrs Whiteley were overwhelmed with the effort that the children (and their parents) had put into these creations. They are now displayed around school for the rest of the children to enjoy.
Today the whole school had special visitors into their assembly, author Jess Hiles and her mum Jo Allmond. Jess’ books all follow a similar theme ‘It’s ok to be different’. They followed up the assembly with a question and answer session with years 4, 5 and 6.
Dear parents and carers,

As part of our Anglo Saxon topic we have used the forest school area to gather natural materials and make our own Anglo Saxon art work. We based our work on Anglo Saxon jewellery.
We had a great time at the church performing our Easter play. The children really enjoyed themselves singing the songs and retelling the Easter story. Here are a couple of pictures of us performing.
Today we have started learning our new instrument, the small Saxophone. We have learnt the names of the different parts and have put together a set of notes to compose a tune. We are looking forward to learning new notes and tunes in the next 10 weeks.
We have had a great day in class today celebrating World Book Day!
The children all looked great in their costumes and we loved hearing all about their favourite book characters.
We hope you look forward to spending your World Book Day £1 vouchers!
Today Mrs Shedden’s Violin Orchestra performed an exciting concert to Year 2 and Mrs Whiteley’s Year 4 class. This was their first time in performing to an audience and showed great courage and confidence in their playing and singing.Well done Year 4!
We have had a great 10 weeks playing the violin and learning the different musical terms, notes and songs. We are looking forward to the Summer term where we will get our hands on a new instrument to master.
In year 4 we have been learning about road safety with Corrinna from Telford Travel. We spoke about the ways that we would keep safe when walking next to and across the road. We went on a walk around the local area to practise how to be safe when crossing a road. We made sure that we remembered how to keep ourselves safe by using the Green Cross Code – Stop, Look, Listen, and Think.
This morning we have had an exciting opportunity to begin to learn to play the Violin. Mrs Barratt, a music teacher from Telford and Wrekin, will be coming into our class every Thursday until Christmas. We have learnt about dynamics, tempo and pitch as well as beginning to learn the names of the strings and the different parts of a violin. We have learnt how to hold the violin and have practised plucking.
