Stafford Castle - Monday 29th June
We had a great afternoon yesterday at Stafford Castle watching the Shakespeare play 'Much Ado About Nothing'. The children have recently taken part in some drama and art workshops in which they learnt more about this fantastic play! Thanks again to our parent volunteers - Mrs McCylymont and Mr Tams - for coming along with us! Please have a look at some of the photos we took.
Drayton Manor - Friday 26th June
What a fantastic day out we had - a well deserved treat after many months of hard work! A huge thank you to Mrs McClymont and Mr Tams for offereing to come along and help us - we really do appreciate it. Thank you! Below are a few photos that were taken.
Parent Project: The Wizard of Oz
Thank you so much for all of you who were able to come along and support Year Six's final 'Parent Project'. The children showed off their skills in ICT as well as their understanding of effective advertising and produced some excellent 'Wizard of Oz' posters - to be displayed around the school and in the local community. Well done Year Six! Below are a few photos of us busy at work!
Hans Holbein Paintings!
Due to the pressures of SATs we were unable to fit in our 'Fabulous Finish' for our Spring Term 'Love is in the Air' topic at the end last term. However we have done it this week! The children had previousy learnt about Hans Holbein the Younger, who was employed back in 1536 as King Henry V111's painter. He went on to paint many portraits of the royal Tudor family - including the famous painting of Anne of Cleves - in which Holbein painted Anne in a far more attractive way than Henry believed her to be when he met her in the flesh!!! Over the last two days the chidlren painted themselves in Tudor costume. A selection of their work is shown below. Can you spot who is who?
Stafford Music Festival - Rotary Club Music Workshop (19th May)
Today Year Six had a brilliant day taking part in a music workshop which was funded by the Rotary Club in support of Stafford Music Festival. The workshop was led by Freddy Aburto who taught the children (and staff) all about South American pipes and drum instruments. They even took part in some salsa dancing in the afternoon! A massive thank you goes from the staff and children in Year Six to Freddy (for sharing his musical talent and for teaching us so much), to The Rotary Club (for their generousl funding) and to Mrs Compton (for organising school participation in the music festival). We had a great day! Have a look at some of the things we got up to below!
Yesterday we launched our Summer Term topic 'Showtime' by holding the audtions for this year's Leavers' Play 'The Wizard of Oz'. We will be spending lots of time putting this fabulous show together. Please remember that there will be after school rehearsals each Thursday - starting this Thursday (21st) - ending at 5.00pm.
Wednesday 13th May
Year Six took full advantage of the wonderful weather today and took a trip out to the local park! This provided them with a well earned treat during their SATs week. They are doing incredibly well and I am so proud of the way they have all approached their tests - all showing a real determination to succeed! One more day to go Year Six! Well done! Lots of pictures showing the fun they had at the park are shown below!
