Super Spelling Fun!

Posted in General News | 1 Comment »

On Friday, some of the children in Class Five took part in the spelling quiz in the school hall. The children tried very hard and received many house points for their team. Well done, you were all wonderful! Keep it up Class Five!


In the school hall…


Well done superstars!

Festival Time! Samba!

Posted in General News | No Comments »

On Thursday, the Year One and Year Two children took part in our amazing Brazilian Carnival! We had lots of  fun with our brightly coloured masks, funky samba dancing and playing our musical instruments. Here are some photographs of our carnival:


We practised our samba movements and did a dance together! IMG_4132

Great dancing Bella!


Mr Martin came to teach us all a samba rhythm using the ago-go bells and a whistle. We then played the rhythm with our own instruments. We had so much fun!

Which part of the carnival did you like best?

Videos will come soon…

On Friday, Class Five (and Mr Cross came too!) went to visit the cenotaph. Throughout the last two weeks, all the children (Infants and Juniors!) have created 3D poppies as part of our fantastic festivals topic made out of wire and tissue paper. Then Miss Garnett arranged these poppies into a lovely wreath. We also saw other wreaths which had been laid from the Scouts, Cubs, the Fire Brigade and the people from Bolton-le-Sands.  Together we wrote a prayer, which Bella and Tilly read out carefully in our thoughful prayer time.

If you visit the Bolton-le-Sands twitter site, you will see a video of Class Five laying down our special Bolton-le-Sands wreath.

We will remember them.

Making Instruments…It’s nearly carnival time!

Posted in General News | 3 Comments »

We have been exploring, designing and making instruments in Design and Technology.

We really enjoyed designing our instruments! Some of us have made shakers, drums, guitars and much more! We have used masking tape and PVA glue to construct our instruments and then decorated them ready for the Brazilian carnival with bright colours, feathers and sequins! We are very excited!

Exploring Instruments


Shake, Shake!
