We’ve had another brilliant week. Our sharing assembly was the best. It started in a bomb shelter with two children who had never been in a blitz before. All of the other people in the shelter were telling them about the blitz and how everything was rationed, but after the bombing the two children’s gran’s house might not be there anymore! After that it’s about children leaving their mums and going off to the country.
At school we have been learning Scottish dances with our PE teacher Mr Ainsworth. We learned the Flying Scotsman, the Gay Gordons and other Scottish dances.
We have had another super busy week. On Monday we had a rehearsal for our WW2 sharing assembly and are improving with our lines hugely. Tuesday came quickly. We went to the book fair to look at some books. We then completed the Anne Frank books we started making on the I Pads last week. On Wednesday we all met in the hall at 11’o clock for a 2 minute silence. We completed the floor book ready for the open afternoon the next day. We then did French, revising the 4 basic questions. On Thursday we had an assembly. In the afternoon we had German with Frau Rosmanith. We played battle ships which were helping us to revise our numbers and alphabet. After German we had an open afternoon. This is when parents come in for the afternoon to look at all your work with you. While some parents were in we had the task of designing a war memorial. Today the whole school came in onesies and wellies to raise money for Children In Need. We also had a bake sale during break. We managed to raise £160.25. We had another rehearsal and are getting even better than on Monday and are getting excited for our actual performance. We have been very busy this week and are ready for our weekend again.
This week we have been super busy doing lots of interesting things. On Monday we came in and had an exciting play rehearsal with another class. Our play is based on WW2 which is our topic this term. We came in on Tuesday morning to have a special assembly because a visitor came in called Graham. He was telling us about a story from the bible. We also learned a bit about Anne Frank and had a computer tour of the secret annexe. On Wednesday we had P.E and we did gymnastics. Then we did Literature Circles. This is a meeting we have in groups about a bit of a certain book that we have read. In the afternoon we made books on I Pads with an app called book creator about Anne Frank in groups. On Thursday we had another assembly. This one was the one we have every week. After that our class and P5/6 walked to the war memorial which is just down the road from the school. Here we laid crosses and sang The White Cliffs of Dover. In the afternoon we had German with Frau Rosmanith. We learned about St. Martin’s Day with her. We also learned a song. Today we had an assembly about Remembrance Day and why we use poppies. We then had another play rehearsal. We did some French and then did art. This week we have been very busy being fabulous and we are ready for our weekend.
