Young Voices

Years 5 and 6 are really excited that our day in London to perform at the O2 is finally here.  After months of learning the songs and dance routines we performed a few of our favourites to the rest of the school on Friday afternoon.  I think everyone enjoyed ‘For Those About to Rock’ almost as much as we did! This week we will be performing all of the songs along with 6000 other pupils and our finale will be a short performance for parents next Friday.

A super writer

Many congratulations to Cara for winning the 100wc showcase this week.  What a great start to the new year!  We had to write a story using 100 words containing the phrase “….I looked in front and behind….”

The people who nominated Cara thought that her writing felt as though there could be a part 2 which would give the reader answers about the characters and events.   Take a look and see if you agree with them.  Don’t forget to leave Cara a message.

The Bengal Tiger

img_0415

In our literacy we have been developing our skills of creating cohesion within a paragraph by using adverbials and pronouns.

Lerryn’s writing about the life cycle of a Bengal tiger does exactly that.  Leave her a message to let her know your thoughts.

A Bengal tiger has their own territory and will only leave when it is ready to mate.  A female, when ready to have young, will be more vocal and her scent will change.  They will only leave their territory when wanting to mate with another.

A female tiger will have her young in her womb for four months.  Eventually, she will give birth to a litter of four to six cubs.  When born cubs are blind, weak and helpless and they are totally dependent on their mother’s milk.  Between birth and leaving the mother wil teache them to hunt, fight and mark their territory.  At the age of three they will leave their parents and will find their own territory.

 

Cinema Trip

On Tuesday 22nd November, at one o’clock year 3-6 took a trip down the high street to the town hall. At the town hall we were watching a film, but nobody knew what the film was. When we got there the film was announced, and was called ‘All Stars.’ It was about some children creating a dance group and funding a concert to save the garage, which is a building that you can go to after school and make friends. I thought it was a really good film and I recommend it to you.

Do you ever go to the cinema with your school?

Residentials

Residentials are where  you go for school trips but you stay there overnight. At our school,  in year 3 we get to camp at school for a night on the school field. We sleep 2 or 3 in a tent. In year 4 we sleep at Oxenwood for 2 nights and do hikes and have hot chocolate! At the start of year 5 we go to Calshot for 3 nights where we do sailing, tower building, rock climbing and kayaking. Later on in year 6 we go to Wales for a week and do caving, water falling, canoeing, rock climbing and hiking up mountains. My favourite activity is caving because we got to fit through small gaps the size of a postbox! We also all got to work as a team and help each over. Do you go on any residentials with your school?

Residential Trips by James

In year three you would stay at school for one night in the school field and you could play games for example tag, football and so on. If you are year four you go to Oxenwood you would do night walking, building dens and going hiking. In year five you go to Calshot. At Calshot you take part in activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, sailing, archery and ringos. In year six you go to the Brecon Beacons and do caving, canoeing, mountain walking, water falling and go on a gun powder walk. My favourite activity was rock climbing because I love heights and it challenges you.

Have you ever been on a residential trip?

School trips

Lately key stage 2 went to the town hall to watch a movie called All Stars. We go on all sorts of school trips for example:Marwell Zoo, The Winchester Theatre and the Houses of Parliament. We also go on nearby trips where we walk to the church, the grocery shop or the old peoples homes. My favourite trip was going to the Houses of Parliament, what is yours?

Performances

Stockbridge school put on lots of performances like a year six leavers play, xmas nativity and Christmas carol concert. Year six is the last year in primary so they get to perform their own show. In the past they have staged little red riding hood, Peter piper and Alice in wonderland. You have to learn lots of lines , songs and solos. Do you do plays? What is your favourite?
