During the first week of June we held an Aspirations Week to encourage the children to think about their goals and dreams. We have been so lucky to have such a wide range of people in to speak to the children about their professions and the children truly have been inspired. A huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to come in this week!!
The photos give you an idea of how much fun the children have had a what a varied week it has been!

As part of Year 5's science work on life cycles, we have had 10 chicken eggs in school.
The children have been engrossed in watching them hatch and we currently have 9 chicks. They have been interested in watching the different stages of their development so far.
Sport Relief 18th March 2016
The children got in the spirit of sport relief by wearing sports clothes for the day and taking part in a fun run around the school field.
The SSOCs organised the event and led a pre-run warm up followed by some fun games to get everyone moving.
This week we have Pop UK in our school to teach us new songs and perform them in a upcoming concert. So far we have learned songs called: The Sun Comes Up and No One Like Me. 6S' favourite song is The Sun Comes Up but we like each one immensely. Our teacher is called Joanne and she is a really good singer. She does some crazy warm ups like Papa's got a head like a ping pong ball. The music videos are child friendly and fun to watch. Joanne shows us short clips of cartoons of the subject of the song. So far we are really enjoying it.

It is day 2 of Pop UK and today we have learned 3 new songs called: Big Crazy World, We Are Having Fun and You're Always There For Me. Big Crazy World was all about how we can change the world. It had a bouncy feeling and it makes a point that we need to be environmentally safe. You're Always There For me is a peaceful, touching song which makes us think about God and with disabilities and also who are not as fortunate as us. Every time the song was played someone cried! We Are Having Fun is a fun, upbeat, funky and it made people want to bounce around. The main word was FUN! This was everyone's favourite song. Just in that song it had a rap, fun chorus and bouncy rhythm.

It is day 3 of POP UK.
Today we learnt 2 new songs: Medley and Lets Learn How To Love; also we revised a song: We're Having Fun. Medley is a mixture of I'll Be There For You, Love and Rocking All Over The World. Our Favourite part of the song was Rocking All Over The World. Before we learnt how to sing Lets Learn How To Love, we watched a video called odd socks. It was about a sister and brother. The sister always wore odd socks but the brother still loved her. Lets Learn How To Love was based on odd socks. It was gentle and soft music. We are recording all the songs tomorrow. It going to be fun. And scary!

It is day 4 of Pop UK. Recording Day!!!
Today we met Jay; he recorded the songs. The system of it was: our voices went through a special microphone to a small red box. Then, from the red box, it was taken to Jay's laptop. Clever!! Recording took a long time. Within the songs, some of the actions were clapping. We couldn't do this. It would effect the CD and the sound produced. Our favourite song to record was......... We're Having Fun! We enjoyed all of the rest equally. Year 3 and 4 recorded in the morning. Year 5 and 6 recorded in the afternoon. Even the teachers recorded at break time! We heard them all put together. It sounded great!!!
