This is what some of the swans thought about the vaulting display:-
Skye - it was good when they jumped over, they were really good.
Leah-Mai - When two jumped over it was amazing, they went really high.
Derren - They did somersaults and backflips.
George - It was very good when two went at the same time, they were amazing.
Payton - At the end we danced, it was really good fun. I loved it when they were flipping over.
Thomas - It was good fun but it was a long way to walk.
Today we experienced a music workshop. We learnt a new song and played the ukulele.
Here are some of our thoughts:-
Amelia - I liked the ukulele, playing it and tapping it.
Kecia - I liked clapping and clicking my fingers to the music and learning a new song.
Riley - My favourite sound was the flute.
Kaysie-Marie - I loved the ukulele it was the first time I played one.
Jaxon - I liked the ukulele and learning a new song about a man from Tennessee.
Bailey - It was good there were lots of instruments, I liked the flute the best.
Harry - It was fun, I liked listening to the lady play the silver flute.
Derren - My favourite instrument was the purple trombone.
Today Year 2 have been outside tidying up the area by the classrooms.
They did some weeding, cleaning between the paving stones, looking for bugs and composting.
The last week has been busy, but fun too.
On Monday we had a Christingle making session and an assembly to celebrate.
The Christmas party on Wednesday saw dancing, party games, food (thank you for the contributions) and a special visitor..... who was just checking to make sure all the children have been making the right choices this year, by being respectful, responsible, reciprocal and reflective at school and hopefully at home too.
Today we walked to the church and sang our nativity songs and shared thoughts about Christmas.
We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas.
The school reopens on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.
The Swans class reflected after the Nativity about how they felt taking part. These are a few of the comments they made....
Charlie - "I was nervous but then I was happy when it all went well"
Amelia - "I was happy because I liked saying the words and singing"
Derren - "I was proud when my mummy and daddy came to watch"
Marcus - "I was a bit scared and then when we did it once it was OK"
Willow - " It was good and I liked doing the wise men dance"
