The children of Kite Class thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book characters for this years annual ‘World Book Day’ celebrations. Even Mr Gale and Mrs Patterson gt into the spirit of the day and came to school dressed as Chewbacca from Star Wars and a dalmation dog respectively! Take a look at our fab photos!
Kite Class thoroughly enjoyed enjoyed the tale of Stanley Yelnats and his experiences at Camp Green Lake. Although a funny story in places, there were also some very deep messages that the children were able to identify and discuss for themselves. We loved it!
The children enjoyed the recent visit to our school by international long distance runner, Jim Gump. They listened in awe at Jim Gump’s wonderful tales of his journeys around the world, and took part enthusiastically in a a running event organised by our visitor to celebrate him reaching 2222 miles. We even made him an honorary ‘Kite’!
Kite Class was very lucky to have a visit from Wiltshire Air Ambulance on 13th February. We received a first aid workshop which included how to deal with choking, how to resuscitate, how to place people in the recovery position and how to spot the signs of a heart attack or stroke. A big thank you to the volunteers at Wiltshire Air Ambulance for giving
Mr Gale’s English set shared the story of ‘Mama Miti’ (a Kenyan folk tale) as part of our work during our recent ‘Poverty Week’. The children enjoyed learning how one person made such a difference to the lives of so many and wrote contrasting paragraphs about the situation before, and after Mam Miti’s help.
Kite Class shared the book ‘Clockwork’ by Philip Pullman as part of our daily guided reading.
Kite Class have been learning about rainforest habitats in their topic lessons. We have considered where rainforests can be found around the world, examined photographic evidence to draw conclusions and make comparisons to our locality of Highworth and looked closely at data in tables and graphs, which give us information about such things as average temperatures, precipitation and animal sub-species.
Mr Gale’s English Set thoroughly enjoyed learning about William Shakespeare and reading the tragic tale of ‘Hamlet’. They did some outstanding work in response, including diaries, newspaper reports, eye-witness accounts and reviews. Mr Gale was very proud of their efforts!
