International Day

Posted by: | April 30, 2010 | 1 Comment |

On Friday 30th April, it was ‘International Day’ in school. Children came dressed in clothing that reflected their culture, nationality and heritage. We had great fun learning new languages, researching different countries and baking continental food.

Thank you so much to all of the parents who supported their children in finding clothes and information about their countries and cultures. It was really interesting to speak to them and to hear them celebrate their differences and similarities. A huge thank you to those parents who gave up their freetime to come and speak to children across the school, your contributions really made the day a special one.

Viking Weapon Names

Posted by: | April 13, 2010 | 36 Comments |

Weapons were very important to the Vikings. Often, Viking warriors would be buried with their sword by their sides, and somtimes weapons were passed down through families as an important heirloom. The Vikings were so attached to their weapons that they even gave them names such as, leg biter and peace breaker.

Why not use the table below to think of your own Viking weapon names. Simply choose a body part, and then add a powerful verb.

Body part Powerful verb
Neck Slicer
Shin Carver
Gut Smasher
Eye Tearer
Head Ripper

If you like, you can use your own ideas as well.

The Gruffalo

Posted by: | March 28, 2010 | 3 Comments |

Here are the photos which show all the hard work you put into that Gruffalo puppet show last week. Well done to all of the script writers, set designers, prop makers, puppet designers, voice artists and puppeteers! The show couldn’t have happened without all of your hard work. I was incredibly proud of you all. Well done!

I am trying to put the video of the show on here too, so keep checking back over the holidays.

To answer our big question, we need to know why people settled in Chorlton in particular.

Before we answer that question, I want to know;

Book Week!

Posted by: | March 7, 2010 | 3 Comments |

As it is book week in school at the moment, and we are all involved in lots of book related activities, I thought it would be nice to share some of your favourite books with each other.

One of my favourite books is Peter Pan by J.M Barrie. I remember reading it when the film Hook came out (I was about your age then) and thinking it was absolutely fantastic! I haven’t read it for a long time, so maybe we can use it as a class novel.
