  • Our children love bubbles!

    Published 07/07/21

    Our children love bubbles! We often play with them to help with eye coordination, cooperation and helping with focus and attention but mostly we just like to have fun. Some of the children try and blow their own bubbles, some like to pop them and some children just love to be showered with bubble fun. I think you will agree, these children are really enjoying the new bubble machine during their topic on Bubbles and Balloons.

  • African Tribal Masks

    Published 06/07/21

     Year 5 and 6 have designed and created African style masks this term.  They carefully researched what African people wear to show that they belong to a particular tribe. They considered what materials and colours they tend to use and what patterns are commonly seen.  After several afternoons of planning, designing and practical work in our Art Loft rooms, the end result was some fantastic hand-crafted papier mache masks which have been displayed alongside the preparatory work in school.

  • Double Bass lessons at New Town

    Published 06/07/21

    Year Five children took part in their third double bass session with Joe from Berkshire Maestros this week. They have learnt the names of the strings and are beginning to read musical notation. Yesterday they enjoyed learning about 'The Blues' and they played along to ‘I Feel Good’ by James Brown. They have seven sessions remaining and we can't wait to watch their musicality develop over the rest of the term.  We hope to see some of them develop a taste for learning to play a musical instrument and continue with this hobby in the future.
