Moving Words Performance Poetry Workshop
On Wednesday, 21st February, the whole school took part in an energetic and exciting day of performance poetry. Each year group learnt two poems linked to topics they are currently learning about in class. They then practised performing the poems and all of the accompanying actions. The poems ranged from protecting endangered species to Goldilocks and the Three Bears! The day culminated in each class performing to the rest of the school.
A big thank you to Colin, Julie and Adam from Moving Words for making the day so enjoyable.
“That was the best day ever!” Year One pupil.
During International Week we learnt about Ghana. We looked at some examples of traditional Kente cloth and designs. We then did some paper weaving before colouring our own design using a black felt tip.
The children enjoyed a skipping workshop. They are now increasing their fitness by practising and improving their skipping skills.
The children used the part whole model to partition rods and ones. These were then recorded on whiteboards. The children were challenged to find as many ways as possible to partition a number.
Year 2 lead an assembly about St. Joseph
To celebrate the feast day of St. Joseph, Year 2 lead the school in an assembly. They gave clues as to what was special about the day before revealing the statue of St. Joseph. All the children, adults and parents were then given a pebble to place at the feet of St. Joseph to show that we belong to a school named after him.
As part of our science topic about living things and their habitats we went to Meanwood Valley Urban Farm. Whilst there we went on a minibeast hunt and learnt how to pond dip.
Great fun was had by all the children in Year 2. They learnt to improve their biking skills. They practised balancing and riding their bikes. As the children became more skilful they cycled between the cones.
