Hi there
 
Well today I sat with Year 4, right next to a Viking longboat daydreaming of how I'd love to sail, with the wind tugging at my ears and twitching around my nose ...
First up today were some great poems from Can I Buy a Slice of Sky. Hey, that rhymes!
Then it was The Parent Swap Shop where Ava really really wanted to swap her parents for different ones.
Next was Daisy and the Trouble with Giants where Daisy thought of all the things she could do if she was a giant, like filling up a swimming pool with her orange squash and drinking it with an oversize straw.
After that was another Daisy story - Daisy and the Trouble with Maggots, where Uncle Clive took Daisy fishing.
Next was The Fellowship of the Ring where Frodo sang a song at a pub called The Prancing Pony just before he ... I can't tell you, you'll have to read it yourself!
Gangsta Granny came next, and granny made Ben a special dinner - cabbage soup, cabbage pie, cabbage mousse for pudding then as a treat, cabbage flavour chocolates.  What do you think Ben thought of that?!

Poetry Recital

website 1

Today year 3, 4 and 5 took part in a poetry recital. They have all been learning a poem off by hear and adding actions to it ready to perform in assembly.

Year 3 performed The Sound collector by Roger McGough, year 4 performed The Wreck of the Titanic by Benjamon Peck Keith and year 5 performed The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

It was a wonderful display and the children were excellent. Their voices were loud and their diction was perfect. Well done children, as usual, you were wonderful.
