Our Poetry Assembly

At the end of our Poetry Week we had an assembly to see what each year group got up to during the week. Each year group performed the poem that they had been studying in an imaginative way. Some of the teachers also read out their favourite poems. Mrs Tootell’s favourite poem included lots of nonsense words so we were all very impressed when she had remembered it off by heart. Take a look at Mrs Tootell’s poem below. Can you work out what the words might mean?

Jabberwocky

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!’

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought —
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

‘And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

by Lewis Carroll

Poetry Week

This week the school is celebrating Poetry Week. Each year group is studying a poet and looking at the different poems that poet has written. On Friday there will be an assembly to perform the poems we have been learning about. Look back at this page to see some of the exciting things we have been up to this week.


Eye Masks

We have been designing and making travel eye masks for our topic ‘Passport Around the World’. It was great fun! Take a look below at some pictures from the day. Hard work certainly pays off… they look fabulous Year 5!

 

 


The Easter Service

To celebrate Easter we carried out a whole school Easter Service. All of the year groups told part of the Easter Story. Year groups did this through poetry, song, dance or acting. It was a lovely service and it was nice to think about the real reason we celebrate Easter.

 


Red Nose Day

Dressed in red, it was lovely to meet with our speaking buddies to read some Red Nose Day jokes together. What a laugh we had!

 


The Hive

Year 4, 5 and 6 had a fabulous morning at ‘The Hive’ in Birkenhead on Monday 27th March. We couldn’t believe it when we arrived! It is such a fantastic building offering a wide range of activities. What a treat to have this youth club built in our town! Take a look at the photographs below to see some of the things we got up to:

World Book Day

For World Book Day 2017 we came into school in our pyjamas and brought in our favourite bedtime story to read. Some of us even brought in a teddy! All of the year groups did lots of fun and exciting activities throughout the day. Some year groups went to the library, others met up with their reading buddies and other classes took part in a ‘World Book Day Quiz’. We finished off the day by listening to some of the teachers read from their favourite book in a very special assembly. It was a fun filled day for everyone!
