Most workshops are the same as last term but a few have changed. Sports now consists of basketball, tennis and football. There is a puzzles workshop where you can try your hand at brianteasers, sudoku and word games etc. Greek mythology is back with Miss Frois, and Mr Page is continuing with music appreciation, where children listen to and learn about multiple genres such as pop, rock, classical, reggae, folk and world music. Debating also features this term as a workshop.

 

November 2017

The workshops are now in full flow.

In Film Appreciation, the children have looked at the silent era and learnt about such greats as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Laurel and hardy. They also looked at the rise of the film 'baddy' and when sound first came in. They will be moving on to look at Japanese movies, especially Studio Gibli, and also in the run up to Christmas they will be looking at what makes a good Christmas movie.

In Singing workshop, Mr Harris form St Andrews has been practising Christmas Carols with his group. The group have also been practising songs from Oliver, which they will perform during the St. Andrews school production.

Horrible Histories workshop have been looking at videos of historical characters and events, and making a poster based on them.

It's great to see languages being taught as part of our workshop programme, and if you take a walk down the Year 3 corridor, you will hear French emanating from Mrs Vereha's classroom and Japanese from Mrs Dabin's! The latter workshop has been focussing on Japanese traditional tales such as Tanabata, and the chidren have made Tanzaku cards where they make a wish.

The Year 3 corridor also boasts an extremely creative Knitting workshop, where the chidlren have been making hats as well as such unsual objects as a knitted octopus! Not only this, but there is a fabulous Watercolour workshop in Sandpipers where the children have painted stained glass designs, flowers, still life and landscapes.

The Board Games workshop is alos proving popular, with such games as Hangman, Connect 4 and Sum Swamp causing some vociferous exchanges! Next door in Penguins class, the games are much more serious as children compete against each other in Chess to become the next budding Kasparov!

Talking of competition, Mr Francis tells me "a healthy sense of rivalry is being forged" in his Quizzing workshop, where general knowledge is the order of the day.

During the Art workshop, Mr Saunders has been working on entries for a competition based on the John Lewis 'Moz the Monster' ad campaign.
