Christmas Fair

Year 3 has been very busy over the last few weeks because we have been making bookmarks. Please come to the Christmas Fair on Saturday to buy them. We have a range of colours and sizes available. They cost 50p each and they are also different designs. They will be sold in Nursery and reception, next to the Tombola. There are posters all around school and they are colourful too.

Mr Shapeshifter

On 22nd of November Y6 watched a show called Mr Shapeshifter in our school hall. It was about friendship and trust; we learnt to listen and talk to people we trust and if you get that bad feeling tell someone. The play involved an evil man named Mr Shapeshifter luring children to his evil workshop to drain their childhood out of them so he could live forever. Two children called Jess and Jack had to work together to defeat the evil mastermind. At the end of the show, we asked Jack and Jess some questions about the play and how they felt about it. They said it took over a month to rehearse the play. It was a brilliant play and everyone enjoyed it including the teachers! The message was to stay safe online and only text or send messages to people you know in person.

Scarlett’s memory box

 Mr Bennett asked us to make a memory box because of the book we read. It was about an old lady who got dementia and Wilfred Gordon Mc Donald Partridge wanted to help her get her memory back. He showed her these things:

SOMETHING WARM

SOMETHING FROM LONG AGO

SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME CRY

SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME LAUGH

SOMETHING AS PRECIOUS AS GOLD

 

For my memory box I put in:

A BABYGROW FOR SOMETHING WARM

MY FIRST SHOES FOR SOMETHING FROM LONG AGO

A PICTURE OF ME SLEEPING AND A BOOK THAT I USED TO LAUGH AT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER FOR SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME LAUGH

A PICTURE OF ME AND MY GRANNY’S DOG WHO DIED WHEN I WAS LITTLE FOR SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME CRY

A SNOW GLOBE FROM DISNEYLAND PARIS

Firefighters visit

On Monday the 7th of November the fire brigade came in to speak to year 6. First they introduced themselves to us and then we watched a video about bonfire night. The video was based on a true story. It was about a boy who was severely injured by a bonfire due to peer pressure. He went near the fire and a few naughty children threw in an aerosol. We answered some questions about the video and moved on. Next we had a look at what uniform they wear. Roan dressed up as a fireman, there were so many different pieces of clothing, and this is because you don’t want any part of your body to get injured. They then introduced stop, drop and roll Blake and Roan had a go at this. We learnt a lot and enjoyed their visit.

We are enjoying the non-uniform days coming up to the Christmas fair. We are really excited to make our mystery item for the fair as well.
