World Book Day Workshops - The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
This year, our World Book Day workshops were planned and delivered by our very own Miss Warburton! The EYFS and KS1 children enjoyed a dance workshop, while the KS2 children took part in a drama session. The children had a fantastic time exercising their performing arts skills, focusing on the text The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. The message at the heart of the story is to look after our planet!
This half we really want to develop children's resilience and perseverance through problem solving and teamwork! We are going to focus on these attributes and values through STEM. To immerse the children into the many careers and achievements they can gain through STEM we began the half term with a STEM day! KS1 and KS2 took on the challenges and problems from Fairytale Land and came up with scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical solutions for them! It was also a great way to introduce the children to our new theme, 'Treasured Tales'. Have a look at all the skills the children were using over the day and will continue to use in the future!
Martial Arts Workshop
As part of our Amazing Asia whole-school theme, we have enjoyed a Martial Arts Workshop! We learnt that martial arts are practiced for many reasons: fighting, self-defense, sport, self-expression, discipline, confidence, fitness, relaxing and meditation. We learnt different techniques and skills that are used in various martial arts.
The Jungle Book Workshop
As part of our Amazing Asia whole-school topic, we have enjoyed a workshop based on The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling! KS1 has taken part in a dance workshop and KS2 has focused on drama. We explored the characters through dance and drama, using team work to create scenes from the story and music using animal noises. We loved it!
As part of our whole-school Amazing Asia topic, we all took part in a Chinese ribbon dancing session. It was a very colourful and energetic display of ribbons and dancing!
