On Thursday 22nd February 2018, Miss Nicholson started choir club with a selection of pupils from Key Stage 2. The group meet once a week for 5 weeks. The aim is to enjoy singing, have lots of enthusiasm and to have fun! Each session begins with a warm up so that there is a reduced risk of damage to the pupils’ vocal chords. Pupils have lots of fun warming up to ‘Hot Potato’ (see pictures of them moving about) and ‘Bung-A-Low’. Currently, they are learning how to sing and perform ‘Hold back the river’ by James Bay, ‘Fight Song’ by Rachel Platten and ‘Mamma Mia’ by Abba. These songs have a variety of rhythms and styles and pupils are working very hard to master them! (The pupils in the photographs are dressed up for ‘World Book Day’ as it got cancelled the previous week due to snow!)
Mrs Riley ran a Games Club for KS1 pupils during Spring 1. Each week children were invited to bring their own game and Mrs Riley also brought some of her families favourites!
Each week we listened to each other to find out the instructions and rules. We shared the games together, getting to play up to 5 games every week!
Look at the photos of playing, winning and having so much fun!
This week we had a competition to see who could sew the neatest. The children chose to make a hanging heart and stuffed it to make it 3D.
Mrs Foster is running sewing club for Year 1 and 2 children.
Week 2 and 3
The children chose to make a small purse with a heart design. They used over stitching along the edges and added a heart for extra detail. They also learnt a new skill of sewing a button on.
The children applied last week's skills to use a running stitch to make a heart shaped book mark which goes over the corner of their book page. The children were so speedy they had chance to sew on a different colour heart to decorate their book mark.
The children learnt some new vocabulary related to sewing including thread (not string!), needle, eye, fabric and binca. They practised running stitch by sewing on binca material which has holes for them to push the needle through. The children made a simple game of noughts and crosses by sewing the game grid onto the binca and then cutting out 3 shapes in one colour of felt and 3 in another colour.
This week we investigated ‘how many drops it would take to fill the dots’. We learnt lots of new science words and we learnt how fun predicting can me. We experimented with different liquids and found out that when the liquid was thicker we needed to use more drops.
This week we had rocket races. We learnt about pushing forces and the force we needed to use to launch our rocket. We learnt that the more force we used, the higher the rocket went. Bailey was the ‘rocket racing’ champion.
