Maple and Holly Class enjoyed taking part in some sports day activities this week.
Key Stage 2 Children had a wonderful time performing in the end of year play. They received some very good reviews from the audience! I'd just like to pass on my thanks to you and all the rest of the members of staff for the superb school play last week. I thoroughly enjoyed it on both evenings. I am sure it took a huge amount of time and effort to put together but it was well worth it! And my child really enjoyed playing their part.
Year 6 celebrated their final sports day here at Hanslope Primary School. They took part in a number of different events including vortex, running races, long and triple jump, and finishing off with tug of war. It was so lovely to welcome parents into the school again to watch them take part and the children showed such wonderful sportsmanship and were really celebrating the efforts and talents of one another. A great morning had by all!
On Friday 10th June, Year 5 got the chance to take part in a drama workshop with Georgia from Black Sheep Collective. They explored the themes within Shakespeare’s plays and learnt how to create character and story through still images. All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were desperate to further their acting skills.
Year 6 trip to Overstrand Hall, Norfolk Year 6 had a fantastic residential in Norfolk last month. It was so lovely to be able to visit places again and they really made the most of it. They conquered a lot of fears, built up confidence and did a variety of activities that some had never done before. The food wasn’t half bad either!
Maple and Holly class had a wonderful trip to Hill Farm. We had a tractor ride and a picnic. We also made clay faces on the trees.
Art Week During the last week of the Spring term, we focused our energy on Art around the theme of Diversity. We studied several diverse artists and learnt about their Art to inspire our own. Faith Ringgold’s art inspired our story quilts, Alma Woodsey Thomas inspired our fingerprint mandalas, tye-dyes and stamped clay relief and Yayou Kasama inspired our paintings of polka-dot pumpkins and flowers made from clay. The Year 6 children produced some wonderful paper weaves and mixed media collages that were inspired by El Anatsui and Pacita Abad. Our work is currently being exhibited through the main corridor.
Maple and Holly had a trip to Stoke Bruerne. We went on a barge called Charlie and travelled into the Blisworth Tunnel.
We all took part in a fantastic science week. We did lots of kitchen science. Take a look at the photos of all the experiments that we took part in.
The School Council arranged lots of fun events for the school to take part in. We also dressed as Superheros and wore red too.
We had a great time celebrating World Book Day. We held a cat walk assembly and there was a winning costume picked from each class.
Our topic this half term is Here, There and Everywhere. We are learning about lots of different vehicles. To kick start our People who help us week some police officers and fire fighters visited us.
