We were delighted to be able to take our Year 6s to this year’s Church Schools Festival in Lincoln Cathedral, organised by the Diocesan Education Centre.
In the morning the children could choose from a variety of activities including candle-making, drawing, banner-making, handbells and drama .
The children also had a guided tour of the Cathedral, led by the Cathedral Guides, followed by an Act of Worship service.
Children, teachers and parents all had a great time and learnt a lot about our fabulous Cathedral. How lucky we are to have such an amazing piece of history just around the corner from us!
Songs for Un-sung Heroes
We were very proud to present a Year 5/6 VE Day celebration afternoon on Friday to parents, grandparents and visitors.
We had a fantastic time performing poems, role-play interviews and singing WWII songs that helped boost morale during wartime. The theme was “Songs for Un-sung Heroes” because during our learning journey, it was very clear how the ordinary man and woman rose to the challenge and deserved to be thanked. What a great way to end a wonderful topic which the children have gained so much from and put so much effort into. We have had a lot of fun along the way! Next stop – Ancient Greece!!!
This week, Year 5 enjoyed a series of sessions focusing upon the features of what makes a good poem and what makes a good performance poet. They enjoyed watching clips of performance poets, using the drums to keep to a beat and creating their own performances to different poems. They gave excellent feedback to groups during the rehearsals which gave each group targets to meet. Every group successfully met their targets and could see how much they had improved over the week. We had a great time doing this in the Hall and the children all demonstrated this term’s school value of Respect really well. Well done, Year 5!
