On Friday 6th December children from KS1 performed their nativity songs to the residents at Prince George House.
The residents were impressed by the children’s singing and it definitely got them into the festive spirit.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we were extremely proud of them.
On Tuesday 19th November 2019, Year 2 visited Colchester Zoo. The children (and adults) had a great day learning about the animals, helping the elf and Father Christmas find the magic reindeer dust and meeting the penguins! The children were great ambassadors for the school and behaved exceptionally well.
On Monday, Year 2 celebrated ‘Into Film Festival’ by visiting Cineworld to watch the film ‘Abominable’. Children had a lovely morning and thoroughly enjoyed the film. On our walk to and from the cinema, we also saw that a new boat had docked in Ipswich Marina – Noah’s Ark!
Year 5 visited Pizza Express on 5th November 2019 at the Marina to learn how to make pizzas as part of their topic ‘The World Menu’. They thoroughly enjoyed constructing their pizzas and they definitely enjoyed eating them afterwards.
This week, Year 2 researched the process ‘Tie-Dye’ and then designed, created and evaluated their own tie-dye t-shirts. Children used elastic bands to create their desired design. The designs the children created were called Tiger, Spiral and Marble. Children selected their own colour of dye and dyed their t-shirts themselves. We were so impressed with the results!
The school is working in partnership with a social business called Catch 22 who are helping us to transform our wildlife area. Look out for more ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures!
Last week children in Years 1-6 celebrated National Poetry Day by learning poems and performing them to their class. The children learnt some important oracy skills including projecting their voice and using actions and gestures to engage their audience.
