Chris Voice – our lunchtime sports coach has been running a house team football competition over the past month on Fridays. The children have really enjoyed it and it has been very competitive. This time Kipling house won the competition. Well done to the children who all took part. It has been great to have so many enjoying sport during lunchtimes across all year groups. Keep an eye out for our next competition.
Last week Sparrow Hawks used Blue Planet 2 to inspire their writing. First they wrote a persuasive script to read out as a commentary over clips from the show. They then created their own sea creatures and wrote a letter each to Sir David Attenborough to persuade him to feature their creation in the next series of Blue Planet.
Sparrow Hawks could not believe it when a letter arrived just days later from Sir David Attenborough, thanking them for their letters.
Here is the letter, and some examples of the fantastic writing that has been happening in class.
On Friday 17th November Chris Voice (Coach) organized some inter school football matches. The children formed teams from those who wanted to play in each house and played some brilliant football. Chris was helped by some of our Buzzards. It was brilliant to see children from all age groups joining in with what were very competitive football matches.
On Friday 10th November at 1pm Buzzards visited Glyndebourne Opera House to watch a special Opera called Belongings. We were sitting in the top circle, right at the back, with a fantastic view! The Opera was based on two different stories of evacuees and refugees. More information about this fantastic cultural experience the children had is on this link: www.glyndebourne.com/
