We are excited to inform you that the Love Music Trust have granted us some funding to support music within the school. This is an extremely exciting opportunity and we are looking to allocate this money to whole class music tuition in Year 5.
The tuition will begin in the Spring term with Miss Swan’s class for 10 weeks and Mrs Allmand- Smith/Mrs Wigglesworth’s class will continue on for 10 weeks in the Summer term. Each child will be allocated their own ‘plastic brass’ instrument for the duration of their tuition and will be required to bring it in to school each Monday but take home to practice for the rest of the week.
The children in each class will be taught as a whole class orchestra by Mr Eccles from the Love Music Trust and by the end of the 10 weeks, we will invite parents/grandparents in to see the children in a concert, displaying the new musical skills they have learnt.
The PTA have kindly put additional funds towards this project to ensure both classes have the opportunity and we thank them very much for this,

Both Year 5 classes created their very own Greek masks during their Art Day.
They used sketching skills to draw masks using a variety of emotions and then picked their favourite to create using different layers.
They look fantastic and we can't wait to share them.

What an exciting week Year 4 have had!
As part of our work on instruction writing, our inquisitive children became Egyptian embalmers. In order to mummify a body, they were required to practise on a tomato first and think about how it could relate to a human’s body!
To begin, the children carefully washed their tomato (body) to ensure that it was clean and ready to start this gruesome process. Using a knife, they made a small incision in the top of their tomato in order to scoop out all the seeds and juice (organs). This was not an easy step as the insides went everywhere and it became very messy; this was not for the faint hearted!
Once all the seeds were out, the embalmers used antibacterial handwash to disinfect the body. Now it was time to fill it with bicarbonate of soda and salt (Natron salt) and gently place it in a bag (sarcophagus). Finally, they added more of the salt mixture and sealed the body.
Finally, the children got to work straight away to write a set of instructions describing the whole process.
We are hoping that our mummified bodies will make it into the afterlife, and we will be checking on their progress in 2 weeks time!
