In our music lesson today we have listened to a piece of music called ‘March of the Golden Guards’. Having listened and commented upon the piece of music, we continued to identify the note names and use the notation to play the piece in groups. Some of us then went on to improvise the next section.
This week, our KS2 children took part in a STEM workshop where they were tasked with designing an automatic car. The brief involved creating a self driving car that could seat at least 2 passengers, include space for luggage, have wheels that freely rotate and be accessible for all. The children worked in teams and showed great enthusiasm and cooperation as they planned and applied their ideas to their designs.
This week our Year 5 pupils went on their leavers’ trip to Aztec water sports. Everybody got the opportunity to do kayaking and use the SUP boards which are paddle boards for small groups. It was great fun and a lovely way to celebrate all of their hard work this year.
This week our Year 5 pupils visited Bredon Hill Academy to take part in a Science workshop on reversible and irreversible changes. We were fortunate to be joined by some Year 7 pupils who helped us to use the equipment and investigate changes. This was also a great opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the layout of the school.
