This week it was the turn of ID5F to perform their assembly to an appreciative audience of parents, staff and other students. The fantastic performance was based around the decades of the 20th century and was fully planned, prepared and delivered by the class. Starting with the 1950’s and ending with the 1990’s, we were treated to a range of different presentations including PowerPoints, plays, poetry and videos, to name but a few. We learned some of the key features of each decade, whether it be famous musicians or songs, artists or events, food or toys. Well done ID5 for a great assembly!

This week, children in ID1V and ID5A performed assemblies that they had prepared to parents, staff and other students.
ID1V children shared their learning about the seaside, linked to their IPC theme. They recited a poem, sang a song, performed a dance and shared some of their thoughts about holidays. They ended with a video, which reminded us of all the fun and learning that they have experienced over the academic year and explained the things that they have enjoyed most. What a great year ID1 students have had!
ID5A students shared some of their experiences with literature that they have experienced in ID5. Focusing on the work of Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’ and J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’, they performed two scenes from the stories; these were interspersed with snippets of classroom learning. They ended with a comparison of the two tales. Well done, ID5A!

This week, children in IDR & ID1 have had their Games Day. This fun annual event, organised by Ms Suzanna, the VNS gym teacher, allows the children to experience a range of active games and sports skills, some practised throughout the year and some new. How exciting!
This year children from ID4M helped out. They each led a group and instructed the children during the twelve different activities. ID4 was prepared and trained for this during their own gym lessons. At snack time school provided an extra snack and drink for the children to recover for the next half.
The Games Day finished with a ceremony held by Ms Suzanna that included singing and dancing. The children were also presented with a ribbon as a reminder of their participation in the event.
The children thoroughly enjoyed Games Day. It was great to see everyone enjoying being active.
Friday 19th May
In ID1, children have enjoyed exploring maps, locating places they have visited whilst on holiday. As part of their Literacy learning, they have created their own treasure maps.
As part of their IPC theme, Active Planet, ID3 children have experimented creating explosive art inspired by the English artist, Nick Rowland. They have used a straw to diffuse paint across paper to evoke a volcanic eruption.
ID5 children have had their entry point for their IPC theme, Go with the Flow. They have created boats that must be able to sail on a moving waterway with a load of 200g.
