A Special Guest!

As part of our work on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory we are going to be writing a biography about the ingenious man behind the chocolate Mr Willy Wonka. 
Today we devised some closed questions that we could ask him and were suprised when he arrived at Eynsham to answer a few!

50s Day!

As part of the Queen's Jubilee we celebrated the year that she was coronated! We all dressed up and performed a 1950s dance. Here are some pictures from our day.

Today we have begun exploring biographies. We listened to videos telling us about the achievements of Marie Curie and Stephen Hawking before looking at texts about Roald Dahl, David Beckham and Tom Daley. 


Year 3 & 4 dance festival

On Thursday 10th February, we went to Bartholomew for a dance festival led by 'Step 2 Dance'. We had lots of fun learning different dance moves and performing to music. We looked at different types of choreography and the different tempos of songs. Please see some pictures and videos of our routine below. :)

Year 3 & 4 final performance

Mixed Martial Arts


Today we were lucky enough to be visited by an 8 times black belt in Martial Arts!
He talked to the children about the 3 main principles of mastering this skill and the children took part in some punching and kicking exercises. They had lots of fun and relished the opportunity to let off some energy whilst remembering to be respectful and responsible. 

At the end of the workshop we were treated to a performance by one of our own classmates!

Anti-Bullying Week


As part of anti-bullying week we took part in a Virtual Reality workshop. The children were shown a scenario through their VR headsets and asked questions about what they thought. 
They all did an amazing job of recognising everyone's role within the incident and were able to discuss what the people should have done to ensure that everyone felt safe from bullying. 

I was very proud with the thoughtful responses given and commend the children on their compassion and understanding.

I am sure you have heard all about the amazing time we had at Hill End last week. The children were fantastic role models for the school and I was incredibly proud of the respect, responsibility and resilience that they showed to everyone involved in the trip. 

Below are some pictures and videos of the fun we had!

As part of Black History month we got to experience an African dance workshop.

In English this week we have been mapping out a chapter of How to Train your Dragon using pictures and key words. The children all loved showing their creative side and enjoyed watching me attempt to draw an example dragon for them! 
Have a look at some super examples below!

Our Amazing Story Maps

In science we have been exploring sound! The children went outside (just narrowly missing the rain) to gather information about the volume of different sounds in relation to distance. We created a line graph to show what happened as the sound travelled further away.
Check out Harry and Arthur's fantastic graphs and explanations!
