Into Opera Y2 2018
Today, year 2 were visited by Into Opera for a World War 1 poetry workshop day. We had a brilliant day composing our own WW1 songs with a tenor, composer and artistic director. We finished our workshop singing ‘Stille Nacht’ (Silent Night) in German followed by ‘Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag’ complete with choreography! A thought provoking and lively end to the day. Smiles all around! 🙂
The Great War (WW1) at the Time and Tide Museum Y2 2018
Today the children have transformed into nurses, soldiers and pilots at an enjoyable morning of enrichment at the terrific Time and Tide museum!
We have tried our wings at flying a WW1 Bi-plane with Captain Cadbury in the Royal Air Corp; the children appeared to particularly enjoy learning to fly the aircraft! This was before we visited a soldier on the front line to get our hands on the real kit!
As nurses we cleaned disgusting bedpans, made beds, performed surgery extracting deadly shrapnel and bandaged the injured.
The children have been talking about our morning activities all afternoon and we look forward to posting the children’s topic writing in the near future!
Y4 World Book Day March 2018
We looked at stories from Aesop’s Fable and discussed story telling. In light of this, we thought about the animals and how they were portrayed in the story and how we could bring them to life in an imaginative way.
We were inspired by the Tortoise and the Hare and the second story; the Ant and the Grasshopper.
Feeling inspired by the works of Jen Buckley, we painted animals from the tales using water colours. During the morning, we learnt how to draw, sketch and then use water colours.
Fantastic art by Jen Buckley
Our amazing art work!

A loud tank shooting
Dangerous barbed wire cutting people
A dangerous shot gun shooting
A dangerous machine gun shooting
A metal rifle shooting at people
A Germany colossal Zeppelin airship is flying over Great Yarmouth
A gun shooting
A soldier fighting
The bombs falling
A soldier riding
A bomb coming
The soldier surrenders
The tank is shooting very fast
The scared soldier hiding in the muddy trenches
The memorial is covered in poppies
The poppies are blowing
The bombs are falling
The muddy soldiers are fighting
The bombs are exploding
The poppies are growing
The soldiers and enemy were marching against each other
A black gun banging
A colossal tank driving
A friendly soldier fighting
The allies won
Fields of hairy poppies blowing in the wind
The big blue tanks were driving around in circles blowing people up
Big tanks driving
Red poppies flying
Brave soldiers shooting you
A big bomb dropping on the house
A bad troops shooting
The brave soldier shooting the bad guys
An angry soldier fighting
A red bomb falling
A brown soldier fighting in the war
A soldier battle
A brave soldier won the Great War
The memorials are for remembers day
A muddy gun firing
A sweaty tank driving
A red bomb dropping
The green poppies waving
A flaming Zeppelin flying
A white airship floating
A huge battlefield in the war
A muddy soldier surrender
A poppies big red long
Blue guns shooting
A Zeppelin with flames flying
A tank is cold moving
The guns are dirty and killed a lot of people
The nice poppies are red and the soldiers cut it when they fight
The big navy is shooting at the enemy
The war is frightening and is electric
The hard army fight in the trenches
The dangerous tank is battling the enemy
The noisy riffles are shooting the enemy
The treaty trenches
The troops attack the spikey barbed wire
A brave soldier fighting
Brave Major Cadbury flying airplane
A tank is metal and it is shooting you
A bomb is blue and it can kill you
A red poppy is waving
Boats sailing fast
Soldiers fighting in the war
Tanks smashing through walls
Poppies waving in the summer
Explosions happening in the war
The people shooting you
The tank is shooting
The enemies shooting with a gun
The poppies are growing
Recently we have had the pleasure of Stella James coming into school to deliver an informative Gooseberry Planet workshop for parents and staff.
Gooseberry Planet has created gaming technology to help children learning about internet safety. In the course of a familiar game, children are exposed to online issues requiring a response such as meeting strangers, bullying, grooming and sexual exploitation. Children love playing games and Gooseberry Planet is a fun way to present internet safety situations to them.
Issues that Gooseberry Planet deals with:
- Sexual Exploitation & Grooming
- Emailing & Live gaming
- Web cams & live streaming
- Social networking & Stranger Danger
- Meeting up & Chat rooms
- Online Bullying
Time and Tide Museum.
They learnt how to ‘Seaside Rock’ (dance); investigated objects from the 1900’s with Victoria who was a time travelling lady that fell asleep on a train and watched a Punch and Judy Show.
The children had a wonderful day and staff from the museum said what a lovely group of children our year 1’s are and what a pleasure they were to have visited the museum.
We are looking forward to our next trip after the half term…
