We had a very memorable week in school last week. It’s hard to know where to start!
Firstly, on Tuesday, we were treated to an outstanding performance of Shakespeare’s ‘A Comedy of Errors’ by the RSC. We were all absolutely blown away by the amazing acting and comedy involved. A group of our KS2 children had the privilege of performing an ensemble piece at the start of the play and we were particularly proud of Eliza, Evie and Isabella from Year 3. They had rehearsed for weeks on end and it really paid off - they were little superstars! I hope some of you managed to see the play on Tuesday evening.
On Wednesday we travelled to Brockholes for our school trip. We had such a wonderful day! In the morning we built shelters and had a go at fire lighting, as if we were Stone Age people. It was so lovely to see the children share the knowledge they have learnt in our topic over the past few weeks. I was so incredibly proud of them all. In the afternoon we were looking at Rocks - classifying them and testing their permeability. We also visited the Brockholes stone circle and made rock pets! It was a very exciting day and we were all very tired on the coach home.
In Maths last week we continued to look at time with a focus of being able to tell the time to the nearest five minutes.
In English we have started to look at A Comedy of Errors and have been preparing to write a descriptive piece on the port of Ephesus.
In History we continued with our safari guides and have been learning about woolly mammoths, sabre toothed tigers and the giant sloth.
All in all we had a great week!
