Performing Arts Week: Glockenspiel lesson on 'Yellow Submarine'

During Performing Arts Week, the children spent time learning how to play the main melody line for The Beatles Classic, Yellow Submarine! Some videos from brave performers are below too, but all the Dragonflies were able to play the melody excellently. They wrote the melody on their own 'graphic scores' too!

Happy Red Nose Day from The Dragonflies

Circo Rum Ba Ba

We all enjoyed a fantastic performance: Circo Rum Ba Ba, in which we learnt about the importance of trees and nature in the ever-more industrialised environment we live in. Check the photos below!

Inter-House Tennis

We completed three relay races after our first tennis session. Throwley won the balance relay, while Badlesmere won both the bounce-up and bounce-down relays.

Arts Week: 7th - 11th February 2022

We have been looking at the work by illustrator 'Marie Dorion' and we have been looking in particular at her illustration in 'It's Up To Us'. We tried to replicate this using natural resources and we produced a collage using only things that we found on the ground!

P.E - Gym and Tag-Rugby!

Class 2 Nativity: A Bundle of Joy

During December, we spent a while rehearsing and preparing a Nativity performance called 'A Bundle of Joy', in which the children told the story of the birth of Jesus in a creative and accessible way. The children were fantastic and performed so joyfully. Enjoy watching the footage below! (We apologise for any blurriness caused by the low lighting conditions!)

‘High Frequency’ Words

All children in Classes R, 1 and 2 bring home a pack of ‘High Frequency’ words every week on a Friday. Some of these words are very difficult to sound out the normal way so they need to be memorised. It is very important for the children to learn these words as they will come up consistently in reading books. As the children move to Class 1 and 2, the words form the basis of the childrens’ writing.

We would like the children to spend just 5 minutes per day learning the words – you may like to devise a game with the words or write the words on paper to stick around the house!

Please keep the words in your child’s school bag so they can be used in school on a daily basis.

If you have any questions regarding ‘High Frequency’ words (HFW) please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Fairs, the Key Stage 1 Manager.

 

Find below, a large list of HFW to check off throughout the year.
