They both teach us lots of new things.
Mrs Roberts is kind and enjoys helping lots of different children.
Outdoor fun at Dunham Massey.
Years 5 and 6 had the most amazing time when we visited Dunham Massey on Wednesday. The children were able to participate in lots of interesting activities throughout the day including habitats and bug hunting, tree art and deer spotting (which wasn't too hard as they were everywhere!)
The volunteers were very knowledgeable and answered lots of the children's questions, including what's the difference between a frog and a toad? and how is it possible to keep the deer herd to exactly 150?
I think everyone would agree that we all had a brilliant day out, which was made even better with the addition of the sun!
Year 6 have been entering the world of "The Scottish play."
The class have read and watched the famous play, Macbeth, which was written by the playwright William Shakespeare.
They have written their own play scripts, used persuasive letters to try and change the outcome of the plot and used role play and freeze framing to become the characters.
"I really liked learning about Shakespeare; the drama and action was amazing!" enthused Reece. " I would read another Shakespeare play, my favourite character was Macbeth."
Luke said, " The language was tricky to understand, but I enjoyed watching it. I wanted to find out what would happen next. Lady Macbeth and Banquo were my favourite characters."
The Magnificent Mayans!
Year 6 were treated to a trip back in time when they travelled to the land of the Maya. The children spent the whole day participating in a drama workshop including all the facts and knowledge they had learnt about this amazing culture during the half term topic.
Everybody was involved with some real budding actors shining out.
The class acted everything from homes, hobbies, lifestyle, rituals and childhood - The whole class had a fun experience and even got to perform the play to their parents at the end of the day.
As well as drama, year 6 also had the opportunity to design and build a Mayan home. Firstly, the class researched and observed features of a Mayan home, then they were asked to sketch a design, labelling the features they wanted to include in their model. Finally, the children spent 2 days building the models using DT skills.
Some of the results were quite realistic!
