Movers and Shakers Fiesta!

On Wednesday 7th June some children from years 3, 4 and 5 attended a movers and shakers fiesta at Barrow Hedges. The fiesta involved a wide variety of dice games that linked to literacy and numeracy. The games were very physical and had the children running and thinking on their feet. It was a very enjoyable morning and I was very impressed with those children who attended as they showed excellent team work!

Year 5 Poetry

The Year 5’s have spent a week learning about poetry and one particular poem they have been focusing on is called The Magic of the Brain. They have recreated the poem focusing on the brilliance of their “senses”. Some poems are featured here:

Such a sight I saw. The glimmering lanterns.The view of the spectacular mountains with deep waters and fresh leaves. Such a sight I saw.

Such a sound I heard. The peaceful sound of the water. The twitching of the hidden creatures. The showering of the water as it falls into the lake from the motor of the boats. Such a sound I heard.

Such a sight I saw. The glimmering river that reflects off the beaming and colorful lanterns. It makes me relax and imagine. Such a sight I saw. 

Such a sound I heard. The twittering of the birds flying. The breezing wind that makes me joyful. Such a sound I heard.

  • Written by Louis

Such a sight I saw. A landscape of hills and faraway seas. Butterflies flying to its pollen. It melts my heart to see the children smiling. Such a sight I saw. 

Such a touch I felt. The rough bricks that built those houses. The calm, cold water which touches my hand. I feel alive. I feel relaxed. Such a touch I felt. 

  • Written by Zuzanna

Such a sound I heard. The faint hissing of the water snakes. Fire echoing in the patterned cages. The water glistening in the moonlight. Such a sound I heard. 

Such a sight I saw. The ever-green trees. Bright colored houses tipped on the hill. Boats ready to take off through the clear water. Such a sight I saw. 

  • Written by Bo

Such a sight I saw. An immense old fashioned monument with peach colors and hollow inside. It filled me glorious pride. Such a sight I saw.

Such a sound I heard. A deafening sound roaring like a furious lion. It was revving the engine noisily when its active. Screeching annoyingly. Such a sound I heard.

Year 5 & 6 Basketball Workshop

On Tuesday a few of our year 5’s and 6’s were able to participate in a basketball workshop run by the Carshalton highschool for boys. The highschool students led our children through a series of basketball stations where they were able to work on different skills and a mini match against other schools. The children really enjoyed themselves and have learnt a lot of new skills from this experience. Well done! IMG_1608IMG_1594IMG_1600

Our Y6 singing club visited Shearing House Residents on Wednesday 18th to sing some old – time tunes. ‘Hello Dolly’ was a favourite and the residents enjoyed joining in. Our children were fascinated to hear the tales of the residents’ time at school.

On Friday, Piper, Ana, Amy and Mia represented the school at a ‘Dementia Awareness’ event run by Sutton Housing Partnership. We learnt what dementia means and what it is like to live with dementia.
