Review of Summer 1

Dance – The children have been exploring expressive dance using the poem The Highwayman as a stimulus.  As usual they have worked with enthusiasm and enjoyment to produce good quality performance pieces. They have also learned a whole class dance, which we hope to share in our upcoming assembly.

Art – Our theme of dragon and visual texture is now complete and the children excelled themselves in producing detailed representations of dragon eyes through large scale drawings and in clay.

TCS Mini Marathon in Schools – The school took part in the TCS Mini London Marathon in school event. We pledged to run, jog, walk or wheel one mile to achieve a help achieve a Guinness World Records title for ‘the most the most pledges received for an exercise campaign in one month’. It was great fun!

Knex Challenge – The children took part in a STEM workshop focusing on engineering. The had to construct a model crane with one moving part using only knex pieces. The teams were scored on their presentation, communication, teamwork, problem solving and operation, function and design. It was very challenging but great fun. Congratulations to the winning pairs –

Joint third – William/Jamie & Emily/Izzy             Second – Leo/Ayda            First – Jack/Ethan

Quick Sticks Cricket – The children took part in a training session before competing in mini matches against different house teams. It was great to watch the fielding and batting strategies and the teamwork communication during the matches. Congratulations to blue team who won the competition with 69 runs.

Mini Warrior Event – The children got to take part in a mini warrior boot camp session and they loved it! They got to challenge themselves and experience different fitness activities such as tire flipping, squatting with weight bags and use battle ropes. We finished the session with a tug of war competition which helped develop team building and communication skills.
