We've had a fantastic start to the year! We have excavated Stone Age and Greek artefacts with Year 4 - we grouped the artefacts by period and discussed and explained our opinions. We've been learning the traditional tale 'The Magic Brush' and have just began to innovate. Keep your eyes peeled for a look at our work which is coming soon.

Horse Chestnut 2017/18

 

We have had a very sporty week this week in school!

 

On Monday we had sports day, all the children tried really hard to earn points for their house and everyone had a fantastic time. All the children coped really well in the heat and continued to try hard all afternoon.

 

On Friday we had Healthy Body, Healthy Mind day. This was a super day where we got to try lots of different activities, along with meeting an athlete who is aiming for the next Olympics! We also learnt about sun safety and had a go at the slip, slop, slap obstacle course. All the children impressed me and lots of them tried new things when we finished the day with smoothie making. Below are a few photos from the day.

On Thursday Horse Chestnut visited the Ancient Egypt exhibition at Bristol Museum. We started the day with a workshop where we were museum workers and had to examine different artifacts to work out where they had come from. We had to be careful when handling the different objects and wear special white gloves. After we had sorted all the artifacts and worked out where in Egypt they had come from we listened to diary entries from Amelia Edwards who discovered all of these artifacts on her journeys around Egypt.

 

After lunch we had a chance to explore the Ancient Egypt exhibition and look at all the different artifacts on display. We learnt lots to help us in our topic and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Dance Festival at Devizes School

 

Last week Horse Chestnut class went to Devizes School to attend the KS2 Dance Festival. They had to learn a group dance, work as a team to create an individual piece and then perform it to the other schools. They worked really well together, coming up with loads of ideas for their dance. They were also supportive of the other schools offering praise for their performances. We were extremely proud of their behaviour throughout the day.

French

This week in French, the children have been singing and dancing to the song 'J’aime la galette', which means 'I love cake'. Since the Middle Ages, in celebration of the Epiphany, French people have eaten Galettes des Rois (Kings' Cake).

The children performed their dance in small groups. Click the link to listen to the song the children have been singing.
