Dancing in Rm 17!

As part of book week, we have been learning about the classic story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  In PE, we were working in groups to make up dances to the ‘Oompa Loompa’ song.  We had a lot of fun creating our dances and enjoyed performing them to the class.

Getting Fit in Room 5!

At the start of term Room 5 created their very own new year resolution. The main theme which emerged was the desire to get fitter and healthier. As a class we have been discussing how we can do this by changing our diet and exercising more regularly. This wasn’t enough however… Room 5 wanted to make sure this was having an impact. We decided as a class to carry out a fitness test and record our scores. We will repeat this fitness test at the end of term and hopefully our scores increase! Check out some of our photos.

Room 6 Learning Update!

We have been learning all about Robert Burns in preparation for Burns Day on the 25th January. We have been learning some poems and songs and recorded our early practice of Auld Lang Syne. A special mention to Ellie M Scott and Jack Montgomery who did outstanding singing during these lessons.

Due to lots of other school events we took our gym lesson back to the classroom and did some good old fashioned circuit training. With a combination of Jumping Jacks, Lunges, Sit Ups and Aerobics we are continuing to work on becoming healthier and fitter individuals.

In IDL we have been exploring food chains and writing captions. In Literacy here are some examples of our dictation practice with a partner.
