Year 6!!!

Year 6!!!

Production

This year our production was based on a famous book called ‘The Wind in the Willows’. This required many rehearsals and singing in tune – which led to many lost voices. All day, every day the main characters practiced their extremely long lines for a whole 2 weeks non-stop whilst the rest of us got to make props such as: the wings for the birds, the horse mask, the boat, oars, cars and much more. All our hard work paid off as the production was a HUGE SUCCESS! Thanks to all the parents as we had a full house and we were sold out!

Graduation

So, we finally graduated from primary school and will move onto a new chapter of our lives – secondary school. A lot of preparation went into the graduation ceremony, our performances, teacher speeches, colour co-ordination and special awards. We were lucky enough to have the Lord Mayor of Birmingham come to celebrate with us. The most enjoyable part was learning the carnival dance that Imagineer Productions taught us. Some children made their own costumes whilst others were large wings and beaks to bring the dance alive.

Disco

To bring all the celebrations to an end we enjoyed a gigantic disco party at Bierton Road. It was extremely nice as the year 6 classes from Hobmoor road also came. We were allowed to bring cameras and tablets/iPads in to capture and make special memories with our friends and teachers. Dressed up in our fancy party clothes, we had great fun dancing and playing games with our friends and teachers enjoying the last few days of year 6. We also had took part in a dance off between the Hobmoor and Bierton road sites – that was hilarious – the weirdest dance moves were revealed! All in all it was a great evening that was enjoyed by many.

Year 5’s Breakfast Muffins

Year 5’s Breakfast Muffins

As part of their Design Technology lessons, Year 5 have been designing their own Breakfast Muffins. The topic involved tasting a variety of different American and English muffins, planning and designing their own muffins, making them and finally evaluating them. It has been a thoroughly scrumptious few weeks for Year 5.                                                                                        DSC00286 DSC00284 DSC00288

New additions to the Year 5 Bierton family!

New additions to the Year 5 Bierton family!

Year 5 have been focusing on the life cycle of chickens for their Science week. They have been very fortunate to have had some new additions to their Year group this week. The arrival of the 10 eggs within their incubator was completed on Monday. The children have been following the developments very closely since then. The incubation period for a chicken is about 21 days and as we received them quite late on , all ten chicks have now hatched!

Year 4 were fortunate enough to be able to take part in Roman Day as part of our topic lessons.

Dominic the Roman told us gruesome and gory stories about great battles between Romans and Celts. He also gave us a demonstration of the armour worn by Roman Soldiers. There was a chance for the children to play Roman games, draw and handle Roman artefacts and at the end of the day we had our very own Gladiator battle. Everyone had lots of fun and developed their learning by taking part in the stories and games. Some children even dressed like Romans!
