WHAT A FIRST HALF TERM!
Wow, what a fantastic return we have had in Buzzards. Firstly, we would like to express our awe at how brilliantly the year 4s and 5s have settled in to the new class. It has been wonderful to see how everyone adapted so quickly, and you should all be very proud!
We have been extremely busy in English so far this term with reading 'The Adventures of Odysseus', which is a challenging text with high brow vocabulary. Both year 4s and 5s have added new words in their writing that they have learnt along the way and we have worked hard as a class to improve our presentational skills. Some members of the class are born to perform, whilst others started off quite shy and have now started to find their feet. We have looked at retelling Greek myths, writing motivational speeches and predicting which unbelievable obstacle will finally kill off the great Odysseus!
Another of our focusses has been on understanding the link between art and history, and how lots of what we know about ancient civilizations is thanks to the different art forms they have left behind. So far, we have looked at a variety of modern artists (From the 1500s to the present day), the Stone Age, Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.
Keep up the outstanding effort Buzzards!
Hello and welcome to the brand new Buzzards page! By now we are sure you have heard that we will be returning to school from Monday 8th March, and we are extremely excited to finally get our lovely new class up and running.
There may be a few of you who feel a bit nervous about coming back to a new class and there may also be a few of you who cannot wait, both and all of these feelings are completely normal. Rest assured that all the adults at school will do their very best to make your return to us as safe, engaging and relaxed as possible.
There are a few things to remember on your return:
We cannot wait to see you all very soon!
