Straw and Order report

Straw and order is a play set in a court room. The donkeys that live in the stable which the baby Jesus was born in and the cows that live in the same stable are accusing each other for inviting people to they’re peaceful stable when nobody invited anyone. The judge, judge grumps and the narrator leave the court room and go back in time, only by a day but to see what happened before Jesus was born and see Jesus be born.

In this play the school had a few challenges ahead of us, we had to do harmonies in some of the songs. We have never done harmonies so it was quite difficult for us but we got the hang of it by the end. We had to use quite a lot of expression to make the funny bits funny, we had to project our voices and not speak too fast, we had to also dance a lot. I learned how to do all of these things just from a show which is amazing.

It was really fun and it worked out fine in the end, thankfully. Everybody done so well and it was so nice to be part of.

Foxy fox in a box

Gaming fox,
Playing an Xbox,
In a box,
Communicating with another fox,
On an Xbox,
In another box.

Sneaky fox,
Is in love with an ox,
Who is currently buying some socks,
While sneaky fox is picking some locks.

Sly fox,
On roblox,
Playing rocky castle with a fox,
# more rocks and blocks,
While the ox is buying some clocks.

Lovely fox,
Because he doesn’t know why,
Birds are in flocks.

Crazy fox,
Has a big box,
While ox knocks,
On a burger king box.

Cheated fox,
Got married to the ox,
But the ox,
Is in a box,
With another fox…

Jessica’s fox poem

Fox poem

Sly fox in a box,
Eating food from a shop,
Like pizza, pasta and potatoes.

Scared fox in a rush,
Hunted in city streets,
by car, trucks and bikes.

Silly fox in a park,
Playing on the all the toys,
Like swings, slides and climbing frames.

Harvest Assembly

Today we went to the school hall to do a harvest assembly and we all took are places and action we started. The back row stood up and starting with a introduction Emily and Aaliyah did that and then we started.

And we started talking about thanking people for bringing in the food for this assembly. The biggies made some fruit and vegetables art inspired by Arcimboldo. We sang big red combine harvester. Then the p4 and 3’s made little poems and sang harvest samba. Then finally the p1’s and 2’s sang dingle dangle scarecrow. Then Mr Macanaly said some words.

At the end we sung our school song the clapped and then Mrs McLoud talked about how well we did. The parents, grandparents and guests went got some food and drink.

Be bright be seen

Friday the 12th of October 2018.

Today the JRSO’s (junior road safety officers) Me and Jessica organised a be bright be seen day for the end of term. This was because in October it’s is be bright be seen month. A couple of days ago me and Jessica wrote a letter to Mrs McLeod then Mrs Rae told Mrs McLeod and that’s what we are doing today. We are going to do a word search and make a t-shirt.

The assembly was better than we thought it would be but it was nerve racking when we first stood up. We had to talk about wearing bright clothes at night so the drivers can see you crossing the road. Then we watched a power point on what you can wear that is bright like a reflective jackets or a reflective wrist band. And after we watched the power point on people wearing bright clothes we played a game, And the game was about looking to see if the people that where crossing the road where wearing bright clothes.
