On Wednesday 29th of March, Class 4C performed their own short versions of Midsummer Night's Dream to an excited audience. The setting was in the secret garden, and despite it being quite windy, the children did very well to have loud voices and remember their lines.
They had been working on Midsummer Night's Dream for the last three weeks. Initially, they had to work in groups to create their own play script from iconic scenes. Then, they were given a few opportunities to rehearse these play scripts.
Mrs Casburn and Mrs Ching were very pleased with the performances and, equally, very impressed with the large number of people who turned up to see our performances.
A huge thank you to everyone who turned up, and continue to show their support.
Last Thursday, 4C (along with the rest of year four) had a fun-filled day at Foxburrow Farm. We visited Foxburrow Farm to deepen our knowledge about the rainforest.
At the beginning of the morning, our class took part in a memory test, where we had a competition to see which pair of children could remember the most items that were hung from the trees. These items were made/ grown in the rainforest.
Next, we had lots of fun building shelters in the forest, pretending we were members of the Yanomami tribe. We were all exhausted and had definitely built up an appetite after this.
After lunch, we compared rainforest flowers to flowers we may find here in the U.K, and we looked for minibeasts, using magnifying glasses and a key. Also, our class enjoyed playing a game, where two members of the class were chosen to be the predators within the rainforest, and they had to chase their prey. This managed to keep us warm...for a little while!
We all had a lot to talk about once back in school. A good day had by all!
We are busily rehearsing for our end of topic A Midsummer Night's Dream performance in the Secret Garden on Wednesday 29th March at 9.30am. If parents and carers would like to make up the audience, the children would be thrilled.
We have chosen a few scripts to perform and the children should be learning lines over the next few days.
First of all, Since we came back after half term, we have been very busy. Yesterday was World Book day and I am sure that all the children thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as characters from their favourite books. I know that Mrs Casburn had planned an exciting theme day for them.
Our topic on the rainforest continues to motivate the children and they have produced some super written work, describing a rainforest setting as well as creating their own rainforest animals based on adaptability to their habitat.
We also now have a wonderful selection of shoes in the classroom that the children have created in art.
Can we remind everyone that 4C have their P.E lessons on a Monday and a Friday and require the appropriate
kit in school (t.shirt, shorts, trainers and if outside a pair of jogging bottoms).
