Into the Woods!
Year 1 and 2 have been on an exciting walk to Ridgehill woods in search of a character from their learning journey! We planned our route on a map and talked about road safety before beginning our walk. We took iPads to take photos of the woodland at this time of year. We didn’t manage to find the boy from our journey but we did find many other mysterious objects hanging from branches, under logs and behind trees. Hopefully these clues can give us a lead as our magical journey continues…
Reception Children went on a bus ride!!!
Message from the bus company: “Thank you so much for inviting us along to meet such an enthusiastic, lively, engaging and thoughtful bunch of young people. They were all so polite and grateful. And by the way, I have never heard ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ sung with such gusto and enthusiasm.
Woodland Trust, who have given thousands of trees to schools and groups this year.
Children in Years 4,5 and 6 had a wonderful time at the ballet watching The Nutcracker Suite. It was an opportunity to experience something a little bit different for boys and girls alike and there were lots
of positive comments from all.
Thursday 28th September was National Poetry Day and Glynne celebrated it in every year group! From Michael Rosen’s ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ (performed by children in nursery) to William Blake’s ‘The
Tyger’ (performed by 6M) each class took a different poem to orate, dramatise and perform. We then shared our poems in Key Stages and realised the many different possibilities there
are for performing poetry. It was lovely to see all the art, word play and drama that came from our celebration.
Our Year 4 children had an amazing time on their residential. It gave them a fabulous opportunity to try out lots of activities such as fencing, abseiling,
team challenges, zip wire, archery and many more!
