Friday 1st July 2022

Wow! I can’t believe that it’s July already. The weeks are flying by in Leaders Class.

This week, the children started the week with a morning of history and drama, producing a performance that consolidated and extended their knowledge on the Ancient Greeks. The rest of the school enjoyed watching the performance at the end of the day. It is available on Tapestry if you haven’t seen it yet. 

On Wednesday, the children took part in an athletics event at Eskdale School. The children had a wonderful time and represented the school brilliantly.

In addition to our events this week, we have been continuing to practice our singing ready for the church service next week. We hope that lots of families can join us.

The children have also completed their free verse poetry, using a range of figurative language to describe the demolition work that they watched a few weeks ago.

In the wider curriculum, the children have learned about Alexander the Great, considering why he has remained significant beyond Greece and through different time periods. In art, the children applied the drawing techniques that they have been introduced to to animal drawings, using the art work of Leonardo Da Vinci and Henry Moore as inspiration.
