WILLOW - Y5/Y6
Ines recently won the 'Best Supporting Actor' award when she took part in the Henley Drama Festival with her drama group. Well done and congratulations. Ines said it was an amazing experience and the adjudicators were really tough.
Learning the Recorder
Throughout the weeks of playing the recorder, we have learned how to position our hands and play note A and B. Every week we have been taken out in small groups and have enjoyed playing the recorders with our lovely teacher assistant (Mrs Venny).
We have been practising some songs e.g. bouncing balls, apples and bananas and the airplane song.
Also, we have been taught about tonguing and how to move from note A to note B in a song.
This has been a great experience and very educational. By Poppy & Katya.
The Gymnastics Competition Report
The Incredible Bus journey. It all started when we strolled across the playground and through the gates. We were jumping up and down with excitement because of the journey that awaited in our eyes. When we walked up the stairs of the bus and smelt the aroma of the polished tables and the clean seats, I got super exited. When we were around half way there, there was music, everyone was singing. There were songs like (shotgun, by George Ezra) and loads more that everyone loved.
The competition. At Malmesbury secondary school (our local secondary school) there is a leisure centre. As we walked in the aroma was like fresh clean swimming pools (because there were swimming pools) and the heat was beautiful, warm and cosy I would of loved to stay there, but my mind completely changed, as we got into the school gym it was freezing. When I got in there I tried to take my mind of the heat and focused on my routine, at times that was hard like when I had to wait for it to be my turn, (o well).
The events. At the competition there were a various amount of activities and judges and people. Including me there were around 30 people supporting our school and taking part but there were loads of other schools as well. The judges were really nice, not too strict. For example (this is true) if you could not do something they would not laugh they would just clap to say well done for trying.
The journey back. It was like the way there. Everyone was having a good time. By Eddie
On Tuesday 16th November Willow Class went to the church to learn about different things we need to remember. It was nothing short of amazing! We were put into groups and travelled through five stations – saying sorry, poppy day, god’s word, that last supper and the rainbow from Noah’s ark. By Ines
