Indian Poetry

We are learning about a village in South India called Chembakolli. We have learnt and performed a poem that is taught to the children from Chembakolli. It is called 'I was once a seed'. What do you think the poem is about?

Street Dance with Ralph Thoresby

As part of RTHS's enrichment day, a group of students came to our school to teach us Street Dancing. We had a great time!

Martial Fitness

During Health and safety week we took part in a 'Martial fitness' session with Mrs Pollard and Mrs Pankhurst.

Clay models

The children enjoyed using clay to make candle holders and decorated them using traditional Indian patterns. They also researched life in an Indian village and created models of some of the traditional homes.

The Iron Man recordings

During Spring 2, Year 4 read the reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes during their Literacy sessions. Amongst lots of written work, the children have also recorded Radio news podcasts. They are reporting on the arrival of the Space Being (chapter 4).
