This term years 3 & 4 are having swimming lessons at Westgate swimming pool. After a nervous start the children quickly gained confidence about being in water and underwater! The swimmers are also gaining strength and stamina as well a more confident swimming action.
We hope to offer year 5 & 6 swimming lessons during the summer term.
Years One and Two celebrated Chinese New Year on Friday with a day of activities to find out about the celebration. Mrs. Chung visited us in the afternoon and brought lots of different Chinese snacks for us to try, the children had fun using chopsticks to eat the food. All the children received a red envelope with a gift from Mrs. Chung to bring them luck for the Year of the Horse.
Year 5 are beginning to mould and create characters from plasticine. The characters will be the stars of a stop frame animation. The children have begun to develop a plot for a story set under the sea and this will become the basis of their film.
Years 5 & 6 animations will be presented to parents at the School’s Academy Awards evening scheduled for the end of this term.
There are more photos of what each year group are doing in their classroom in ‘ children’s work’.
