On Friday 22nd November, it was the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten’s birth. Hundreds of people from around the world sang from his collection of songs called “Friday Afternoons”. Our choir sang a song called “Cuckoo”.
The rest of class 3 and 4 came to watch us. It was quite exciting knowing that so many other children and adults were singing around the country and on the other side of the world at the same time as us. We recorded a video of our singing and took some pictures.
It was a challenging song, with half of us singing Cuckoo whilst the others sang the tune. Good fun though!Photo CPS school CUCKOO 2

Anti bullying morning in KS2

Anti bullying
We have been working on anti bullying this week. We went into the hall and acted out what was on the board. Then we had a go at acting out our part to the rest of the group.. Mrs.Page played a bongo. When she played the bongo we did a freeze frame then she called one of us out to talk about our character, then what our character did in the picture. We carried on when she played the bongos a second time.
Then we worked on A3 sheets of paper and we sorted out things that are friendly and are unfriendly. The sentence that we got stuck on was (to tell people how to play) because it would be friendly if you were teaching them how to play a game, but if you joined there game and were telling them how to play it would be unfriendly. If this is done repeatedly it would eventually become bullying.
After this our teacher Mrs.Hollingsworth explained to us that we have the right to say no but not angrily and also not to shout it just to say it kindly and to use body movements to make yourself clearer.
When that activate ended we sat on the floor in the hall and spoke about Anti bullying.


Our Amazing Open Day!

Today was our Open Day, when we had parents come in to help us with our learning. First, we worked on our digital stories using the laptops. Then, we tested some online maths games to see whether they were easy or tricky, or good fun … or both! After that, we figured out some messages written in Ancient Runes and carved our names (or a message) onto Balsa wood. We could colour it and take it home too!
Next, we ate lunch with our mums and dads. It was delicious!
Finally, our afternoon lessons were all about the Bayeux Tapestry. Half of us practised sewing some stitches onto a sampler, while the other half of us found out facts about the Tapestry. Later, we started designing our very own school tapestry. We haven’t yet decided whether we will be sewing the whole school year, a day, or something else!
If you came to our open day, we hope you enjoyed being with us! It was a pleasure to share our learning with you.
What a fantastic day!
