Year 1 Cinema Trip!

What better to do on a rainy Wednesday than visit the cinema?! Classes 3 and 4 were very excited to see the Secret Life of Pets 2 – all about a little dog called Max who has to overcome his fears to save the day.

Our day started with an exciting trip on a double decker bus, with the children singing some lovely songs to keep us entertained along the way. We arrived just in time to settle down for the film and there was lots of giggling throughout!

Before the trip home, we had lunch in the upstairs seating area where the children enjoyed socialising and discussing their favourite part of the film over their sandwiches!

We were so proud of the whole year group – there behaviour was fantastic and was even commented on by a teacher of another school who said that the children we so well behaved and that you wouldn’t know there were 60 five year olds in there!

Well done Year 1, another super trip with fantastic behaviour – we can’t wait for the next!

Year 1 – Spooky Dress up Day!

Classes 4 and 3 had a spooktaculartime celebrating our 'Spooky dress up day."

We took part in lots of spooky activities throughout the day. The children came up with some ghastly adjectives to use to write a 'GHOST' acrostic poem. 

We also explored estimation in maths, carrying out a ghoulishpumpkin investigation!

Both classes loved getting messy by making some spooky, gloopy soup too! 

We finished the day with a 'spooky' disco and yoga, retelling a haunting story through yoga poses.

We all had a magical day!

Class 4 enjoy World Book Day

It was World Book Day this month and Class 4 celebrated in style. All of the children enjoyed a fun filled day, reading books, listening to stories and drawing their favourite book characters. Their costumes were fantastic. Check out our fab photos…

Well done Class 4. You looked great!

Penpol French Café Video Montage – The Final Cut!

Pupils at Penpol have performed amazingly well in French this past term by showing that they can order food an drink in French.

All classes performed really well, using the key phrases “je voudrais” (I would like) and “s’il vous plaît” in order to order food and drink.

Check out the video below which gives you an overview of what they have all been learning recently, as well as showing how much they enjoyed this topic.  Bravo Penpol!

Class 4 recreate the Great Fire of London

Class 4 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London this term.  To mark the end of their exciting project, the class gathered outside with their handmade London houses to understand just how quickly the fire spread through the city.

Alan started a small fire at one end of the row of houses and before long it had spread to the next house, then the next and then before long the whole of London was on fire!

Check out the video of what happened here:

Please remember that fire is incredibly dangerous and you should NEVER play with fire yourself.

Year 1 are Movie Music Makers

The children in Year One have been creating soundtracks for a clip of the classic cartoon Tom and Jerry. After watching the short 1 minute clip, they discussed what sounds they could make for each of the different elements. We focused on dynamics, discussing where it would be appropriate for loud and soft noises and timbre, developing a mix of sounds for the different elements.

I loved it, it was really funny – Ted Class 4
